Voltaire was a hugely prolific writer of short prose works. René Pomeau, in a rare bon mot, writes that Voltaire is ‘interminably brief’. Scholars don’t quite know what to do with this vast part of Voltaire’s œuvre  and they remain little studied. In the late eighteenth century to the late nineteenth century editors bundled these works together in volumes called ‘Mélanges’.

The notion of autopsy (from the Ancient Greek autos and opsis: to see for oneself) designates the prime operation in the development of knowledge. Even though the common meaning of autopsy, that of cadaveric examinations, only becomes lexicalized in the 19th century, the word is diversely used in history, religion, medicine and philosophy.
