The Atlantic Enlightenment

Cover
Susan Manning, Francis D. Cogliano
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - 209 Seiten
As the essays in this book cumulatively demonstrate, the Atlantic Enlightenment is not a compound product of modern scholarship, but a framework intrinsic to the articulation of the modern world as it was perceived and described by the major figures of the 18th-century world.
