Enemies of the Enlightenment by Darrin M. McMahon
Book DescriptionCritics have long treated the most important intellectual movement of modern history-the Enlightenment-as if it took shape in the absence of opposition. In this groundbreaking new study, Darrin McMahon demonstrates that, on the contrary, contemporary resistance to the Enlightenment was a major cultural force, shaping and defining the Enlightenment itself from the moment of inception, while giving rise to an entirely new ideological phenomenon-what we have come to think of as the "Right." McMahon skillfully examines the Counter-Enlightenment, showing that it was an extensive, international, and thoroughly modern affair.

Genealogies of Genius, Paperback (December 2015)
Genius as a historical concept, rather than as a presumed trans-historical fact, is surprisingly underexamined, even as millions of daily decisions-personal, institutional, and governmental-are made according to unexamined assumptions about it. The essays in this book show that the origins and uses of concepts of genius warrant careful examination.

Offers a summation of the history of happiness, and its evolution from divine gift to natural human entitlement. This title shows how our modern quest for the 'holy grail' of happiness continues to generate various forms of pleasure, but also, paradoxically, different forms of pain.
