Synopsis

La derniere edition des Lettres sur les animaux, ouvrage de l'encyclopediste mineur Charles-George Le Roy, date de 1896. Cette nouvelle edition propose une presentation tres respecteuse de la pensee originale de l'auteur, elle precise dans quelles circonstances les divers elements du livre furent successivement publies et retrace son evolution depuis les articles HOMME (Morale) et INSTINCT de l'Encyclopedie jusqu'a l'edition complete de 1802. L'introduction situe les Lettresdans l'oeuvre de Le Roy qui, comptant l'ecriture parmi ses activites, fut d'autant plus mele aux conflits d'idees de l'epoque. Des documents inedits permettent d'etablir avec exactitude combien Le Roy a su mettre a profit ses fonctions de lieutenant des chasses des Parcs de Versailles pour exercer ses talents d'auteur. A la lumiere de divers autres documents, et parmi eux des inedits, il apparait que Le Roy frequentait quelques-uns des penseurs les plus connus de l'epoque (Condillac, Buffon, Diderot, Helvetius, d'Holbach), ainsi que des personnalites de la haute societe (en particulier Mme de Marchais), deux mondes don't l'influence est perceptible dans les Lettres sur les animaux. Celles-ci font echo non seulement aux ecrivains que leur auteur connaissit personnellement, mais aussi aux nombreux autres qu'il avait lus, notamment Montesquieu, Voltaire, Rousseau. Inspire et nourri de ces contacts scientifiques, litteraires et philosophiques, Le Roy a su s'en degager pour developper sa propre pensee et, a l'image de l'excellent accueil que les contemporains et la posterite ont reserve a l'ouvrage, ses idees ne peuvent qu'eveiller un vif interet.
