Publisher's summary

Age of Enlightenment From its beginnings as a loosely definable group of philosophical ideas to the culmination of its revolutionary effect on public life in Europe, the Age of Enlightenment is the defining intellectual and cultural movement of the modern world. Using reason as its core value, the Enlightenment believed that progress and the betterment of the human condition was inevitable. Inside you will read about… - The Great Thinkers of the Enlightenment - Engaging With Religion - Morality in the Age of Enlightenment - Society in the Age of Enlightenment - Science and Political Economy - The Enlightenment and the Public - Print Culture and the Press Philosophies of the Enlightenment gave birth to the disciplines of political science, economic theory, sociology and anthropology, the disciplines that still form the basis of how we understand life in the 21st century. A bold attack on the Church, the State and the Monarchy, the Age of Enlightenment was a direct challenge to the status quo that sought freedom for all.

Terrible Reader, so bad listening is futile

This is one of the worst readers I’ve had the misfortune to experience, Not to mention throw my money away. The flat, monotone delivery would be bad enough it a novel but with material like this it’s worse. A computer could read it better. Save your money and the frustration. It’s a shame because it could be a nice little synopsis if not for the reader ruining the experience.

A Very Good Starting Point For Further Study

I completely enjoyed this quick overview. There are numerous names of significant Enlightenment figures, writers, and works described. Obviously it is impossible to get to far in depth in any hourly history. However I kept looking up different persons and works and purchased several related works for additional study. I am glad I purchased and read this work. Thank You....
