    One thought on “What Is Enlightenment?: Eighteenth-Century Answers and Twentieth-Century Questions”

    1. Some books collect modern intellectual questions and put them in one place. The essays in this book stimulate my mind. I look at it all the time when I feel like thinking. Call it the bathroom journal.

    2. I read the Kant, Foucault, Habermas, and Hinchman pieces for a reading group.Also, that subtitle. Come on, academics.

    3. Such a fascinating read. I really wish I had the money to purchase it instead of getting it from the library.
