Description - Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment by Michel Delon

The Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment , a translation of Michel Delon's highly acclaimed Dictionnaire Euroe?en des Lumieres , contains more than 350 signed entries covering topics central to the philosophical and historical period of the Enlightenment, from its beginnings in the late seventeenth century through to its final stages in the mid-ninteenth century. Developments in art, economics, history, philosophy, and religion, as well as in technical and scientific fields, are covered. Delon's team of more than 200 experts from around the world offers a unique perspective on the period, including not only factual information but also critical opinions that take a reader's understanding of the Enlightenment to a deeper level. An international team of translators, editors, and advisers, under the auspices of the French Ministry of Culture, has brought this massive collection of Enlightenment scholarship to the English-speaking world for the first time.
