The paper shows the apologetic intent of Claude Yvon (1714-1789) in his contribution to the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d’Alembert (1751-1772). The article focuses on his Aristotélisme, which allows us to solve the mid-18th-century debate on whether Yvon was heterodox or orthodox. In particular, the examination concerns what Yvon expressed about the Aristotelian theory of the mortality of the soul, paying attention to the sections on the Italian Aristotelians of the Renaissance and of the modern age Andrea Cesalpino (1524 or 1525-1603) and Cesare Cremonini (1550-1631).
