The Enlightenment World

Description

The Enlightenment World offers an informed, comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the European Enlightenment (c. 1720-1800) as both an historical epoch and a cultural formation.

The chapters, written by leading international experts, represent the most cutting-edge research within the field and include:

the high enlightenment
polite culture and the arts
reforming the world
material and popular culture
transformations and exploration.

Covering topics as diverse as government, fashion, craftsmen and artisans, philanthropy, cross-cultural encounters, feminism, censorship, science and education, this volume provides a thorough survey of the Enlightenment in Europe.
