    This course will explore and discuss the work of such influential thinkers as Voltaire, John Locke, Denis Diderot, Adam Smith, Immanuel Kant, and Benjamin Franklin. It will also spend some time with less well-known figures such as Joseph Priestly: a clergyman, scientist, and philosopher who was one of the most passionate defenders of the American Revolution in England: and the remarkable John Toland, a man whose writings on religion changed the way many Europeans thought about the Scriptures.
