An eminent scholar of modern culture argues that the Enlightenment-the importance of which has been vigorously debated in recent years-was a more complex phenomenon than either its detractors or advocates assume.

"Ranging as it does over art, morality, religion, science, philosophy, social theory, and a good deal besides, [Dupre's book] is a marvel of scholarly erudition. . . . Formidably well-researched, . . . [this] would make an excellent introduction to Enlightenment ideas for the general reader."-Terry Eagleton, Harper's Magazine

"This immensely readable book will cause readers to rethink the Enlightenment and to see its positive aspects. It will also add crucial historical perspective to current discussions of modernity."-Donald Verene, Emory University
