The Enlightenment period started (1700) with kings having absolute power. The era ended (1800) with calls for political change and movement toward republican government, economic reform, social and cultural change.
How did this happen within a hundred years? The Enlightenment is the answer. For an explanation and examples, I invite you to take the class.
Our methodology will be lectures on the overall ideas of the Enlightenment with a focus on the contributions to Enlightenment thought by Montesquieu, Voltaire, Adam Smith and Rousseau.
