Abstract

The Enlightenment has probably inspired more discussions and disagreements on its contents, purpose, and legacy than any other chapter in intellectual history.

A keen sense of a shared intellectual adventure ran across the Enlightenment’s numerous networks, beneath differentials of geography, politics, and faith.
