What was the Enlightenment? Was it a unified body of thought generated by an established canon of 'great thinkers', or were there many areas of contradiction and divergence?

Debate over the meaning of 'Enlightenment' began in the eighteenth century itself and has continued unabated until our own times.

Debate over the meaning of 'Enlightenment' began in the eighteenth century itself and has continued unabated until our own times.

What was the Enlightenment? Was it a unified body of thought generated by an established canon of 'great thinkers', or were there many areas of contradiction and divergence? How far-reaching were its critiques intended to be? Was it a revolutionary body of thought, or was it merely a catalyst for the revolutionary age which followed it? Did it mean the same for men and for women, for rich and poor, or for European and non-European? In this important new textbook Dorinda Outram addresses these, and other, questions about the 'Enlightenment'. She sets the major debates of the period against the broader social changes such as the onset of industrialisation in Western Europe, the establishment of new colonial empires, and the exploration of hitherto unmapped portions of the world's surface. This unique and accessible synthesis of scholarship will be invaluable to any student of eighteenth-century history.
Comments to eBook The Enlightenment (New Approaches to European History)
Gavinranadar
An interesting, albeit brief review of the major themes arising from the Enlightenment. Outram's treatment of the period does not herald accomplishments that we usually single out as definitive of the Enlightenment. Instead, Outram gives a very balanced review, showing the parallel development of thinking about human rights alongside the expansion of colonialism and slavery. And, to counter the typical attention paid to the increasing interest in science, the text also shows the proliferation of utterly non-scientific literature aimed at far less than enlightened minds.

The text also covers several domains of life during this period, so it doesn't just focus on Enlightenment ideas; it includes what was going on in life itself. Be reminded. This is a brief review of themes from the Enlightenment, not a detailed history. As such, it would be a very fine text for undergraduate students or perhaps as a preliminary introduction for more advanced students seeking an overview of this period in Western history.

Great text on placing the Enlightenment in a historical context. An easy and quick read. This was used as a secondary resource for a graduate musical class, but looks equally at lifestyle, art, and philosophy.

Most history books tend to either be too long and in-depth on a topic of interest or too brief. This book is neither, which is especially impressive given that it clocks in under 200 pages and covers, essentially, a century.

Outram succeeds in her basic layout of the book and in her lack of "kiddie gloves" in respect to her audience. She opens the book with a discussion of differing interpretations of the Enlightenment, in particular an essay contest in a Berlin newspaper in 1785. Outram begins with a discussion of Kant's response to the question, "What is Enlightenment?" Throughout the book, the scholar responds to shortcomings of other historical analyses of the period and explores, in short, 15-page sections, specific questions regarding the Enlightenment. Outram wastes no time diving into the complex morass of the eighteenth century. Writing in clear, lucid prose with a quick style, Outram brings to light new ideas on the Enightenment while responding to more traditional interpretations in due course.

The history professor who is directing my seminar on Religious Toleration in Renaissance and Reformation Europe recommended this book. When I become a high school teacher, I'm pretty sure this is a text I will use.

A very well-written, accessible history of the Enlightenment. People often invoke The Enlightenment as the time when reason and Science defeated superstition an religion, and human rights became important. This is, at the very least, a drastic oversimplification, and Outram's book is a good antidote. Outram treats the Enlightenment as the complicated and often contradictory collection of ideas and movements that it was.

I highly recommend it.

I took a college course on the Enlightenment. The Outram book gave a slightly different perspective from the course texts. It was worth it.
