When Denis Diderot started thefirst encyclopedia in the eighteenth century, it was a groundbreaking and timely event. It was the time of the Enlightenment,and knowledge was seen as something which was to be spread to many and to build upon by creating new knowledge. His ambition was to bring all available knowledge together in one series of books so that every person who could read has access to all there is to know. Nowadays, in a time of easily accessible knowledge, the question is whether there is still need of an encyclopedia. It is obvious that the amount of knowledge is such that it is not possible to bring it all together in one encyclopedia. One may argue that the Internet is the encyclopedia of today, but that misses an important point of Diderot, a point that is probably even more valid today. He created a team that valued information and selected what was worth to be presented in the encyclopedia. He recognized that science is not a democratic process where the majority decides what is true and valuable, but rather a growing body of knowledge in which radical ideas from individuals may bring about huge changes, even though most would reject these new ideas in the beginning. Indeed, the Internet lacks such authority and it is not easy to select valuable information from nonsense, especially when one is not an expert in a certainfield.
