Product Description

The Enlightenment: the Science of Freedom by Peter Gay This book is the sequal to Gay's The Enlightenment: The Rise of Modern Paganism. In this book, Gay describes the philosophies' environment, their program, their view of progress, of science, of art, of society, and of politics. He explains the complex relationship and interaction between the two Enlightenments, the philosophic movement and the environment from which the philosophies drew ideas and support. His masterful appraisal opens a new range of insights into the Enlightenment's critical method and its humane and libertarian vision.
