Diderot's ideals deeply resonate with me:
|“||Indeed, the purpose of an encyclopedia is to collect knowledge disseminated around the globe; to set forth its general system to the men with whom we live, and transmit it to those who will come after us, so that the work of preceding centuries will not become useless to the centuries to come; and so that our offspring, becoming better instructed, will at the same time become more virtuous and happy, and that we should not die without having rendered a service to the human race.||”|
- Wikipedia is a quintessential human endeavor, for it is human knowledge, its expansion, recording, and transmission to fellow human beings and future generations that advances humankind; it is humanity's historical ability to learn, discover, and teach knowledge that lies at the heart of what it is to be and develop into a human being; it is this individual and collective ability that distinguishes humans from primates.
- And where every generation and every individual can build upon the collective knowledge and advance it further, so that we all stand on the shoulders of the giants that preceded us, and we prop upwards and forwards our progeny.
