Description: Debate over the meaning of 'Enlightenment' began in the eighteenth century and has continued unabated until our own times. This period saw the emergence of arguments on the nature of man, truth, the place of God, and the international circulation of ideas, people and gold. In the second edition of her book, Dorinda Outram studies the Enlightenment as a global phenomenon, comparing it against the period's broader social changes. The new edition also features a new introduction and chapter on slavery, and the bibliography and short biographies have been extended.
