This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to trace the transmission to France of Locke's suggestion that there is nothing inconsistent in the notion that God could superadd to matter the power of thought. The story includes the attention given in French-language journals to the British debate around that suggestion. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
