The Enlightenment

This seminar will explore how the idea of the Enlightenment emerged in French intellectual circles, and how it evolved over the course of the eighteenth century. We will focus in particular on the articulation between the Enlightenment and its two most illustrious precursors: the Scientific Revolution and the grand siecle of Louis XIV.
