The Enlightenment: Bolinda Beginner Guides | [Kieron O'Hara]

The Enlightenment: Bolinda Beginner Guides

The Enlightenment has been nothing if not divisive, being blamed for bloody disasters - Auschwitz, the gulags, Islamic terrorism - as well as being heralded as the harbinger of reason and equality. To this day historians disagree over when it was, where it was, and what it was. Kieron O’Hara deftly traverses these conflicts, presenting the history, ideology, culture, and social life of the Enlightenment, not as a simple set of easily enumerated ideas, but rather as an evolving conglomerate that spawned a diverse set of thinkers.

Audible Editor Reviews

The ideals of the Enlightenment are both controversial and, frequently, poorly understood. This introduction to the Enlightenment from noted philosopher and computer scientist Kieron O'Hara provides a digestible survey of this sprawling revolution of ideas. A confident and composed narration by AFI Best Actress winner Deidre Rubenstein brings polish to this audiobook, and audiences will find her reading of O'Hara's concise volume highly listenable. From a history of the Enlightenment's ideas and basic principles up to its present-day legacy, this audiobook will provide listeners a basic understanding of a very complex cultural movement.

Publisher's Summary

The Enlightenment has been nothing if not divisive, being blamed for bloody disasters - Auschwitz, the gulags, Islamic terrorism - as well as being heralded as the harbinger of reason and equality. To this day historians disagree over when it was, where it was, and what it was (or whether it still is).

Kieron O’Hara deftly traverses these conflicts, presenting the history, ideology, culture, and social life of the Enlightenment, not as a simple set of easily enumerated ideas, but rather as an evolving conglomerate that spawned a very diverse set of thinkers, from the radical Rousseau to the conservative Burke.
