“JAUCOURT’S INDEBTEDNESS TO ADDISON IN THE ‘ENCYCLOPÉDIE.’” Romance Notes, vol. 21, no. 2, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for its Department of Romance Studies, 1980, pp. 211–14. JSTOR, https://www.jstor.org/stable/43801697.
In this brief article, Nablow calls attention to the presence of the English essayist Joseph Addison in the writings of Jaucourt for the Encyclopédie. Most passages, Nablow notices, are copied almost verbatim and rarely contain a citation or mention of Addison’s name. The article contains a side-by-side comparison of Addison and Jaucourt as well as a potential explanation why Jaucourt chose to resort to this plagiarism of Addison while neglecting to include his name.
