Cherpack, Clifton. “Warburton and
the Encyclopédie.” Comparative Literature, vol. 7, no. 3, Duke University Press, University of Oregon, 1955, pp. 226–39. JSTOR, JSTOR, doi:10.2307/1768228.
The question of plagiarism and use of sources in the Encyclopédie is almost as widely discussed in scholarship today as it was critiqued in the 18th century. Instead of starting with an Encyclopédie article and determining what, if any, authors were plagiarized, Cherpack starts with a writer, William Warburton in this case, and discusses where he is cited and quoted. Claiming that Warburton had already been known as an “indirect contributor” to the Encyclopédie, Cherpack also posits that his “contributions” are more numerous than previous scholars have understood and devotes his article to listing the entries where Warburton is quoted and pointing out unique and interesting aspects related to them including how Warburton was cited (or not cited) as well as the articles’ authors and interrelationships.
