Description - Introducing the Enlightenment by Lloyd Spencer
The Enlightenment of the 18th century was a crucial time in human history - a vast moral, scientific and political movement. It sprang from the work of intellectuals across Europe and the New World who began to free themselves from despotism, bigotry and superstition and tried to change the world. The Enlightenment is a clear and accessible introduction to the leading thinkers of the age, the men and women who believed that rational endeavour could reveal the secrets of the universe. Includes Voltaire, Diderot, Adam Smith, Samuel Johnson, Immanuel Kant, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
This series of graphic guides covers every key thinker and topic in philosophy, psychology, science, politics, religion, cultural studies, linguistics and more. Written by experts and illustrated by leading graphic artists, there is no better way to acquaint yourself with the biggest and best ideas humanity has ever come up with.
