THE ENLIGHTENMENT Reason, Tolerance, and Humanity

by | Read by James Schmidt

History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

The Enlightenment marked the birth of the modern age. Serious scientific inquiry began in earnest, political philosophy took root, and intellectual discourse moved into the public sphere. Dr. James Schmidt's narration is thoughtful and reserved, allowing the forceful ideas to speak for themselves. The presentation is spare, without musical interludes or other embellishments, and the lectures are followed by questions from the otherwise quiet audience. This is a thoughtful and lucid survey of a momentous time in human history. An accompanying pamphlet summarizes the lectures, and provides illustrations and additional readings. This sturdily bound collection delivers on its promise of college-level material. J.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
