MEDIA REVIEWS
"This superb collection not only provides original and important perspectives on many aspects of eighteenth century thought; it also insists, passionately and provocatively, that the Enlightenment could speak to the drama and frustrations of the human condition more cogently than the philosophy of our own day. The contributors engage lucidly and critically with postmodernism, making keen use of its important insights, but sternly deflating the widespread misconceptins it has engendered about its intellectual predecessors. Few readers will agree with everything said here. But all readers will find something to make them stop, and ponder, and reflect.."
-"David A.Bell, Professor of History, John Hopkins University
"This much-needed collection of essays explodes postmodernism's ignorant prejudices about the Enlightenment and restores that great intellectual movement to its proper place as the source of the modern Enlightenment fashion, the essays are vigorously argued and lucidly written. An Outstanding book.."
-" Paul Robinson, Professor of History, Stanford University
