Religion and the Enlightenment

Religion and the Enlightenment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Religion was an integral part of almost everyone's daily life in seventeenth and eighteenth century Western Europe. Yet new philosophical ideas were emerging, ideas that became the foundation of our modern world. This book, designed for classroom use, reveals the roots of Enlightenment thought as well as their results, both positive and negative, with special attention to figures such as Descartes, Pascal, Rousseau, and Kant.

Synopsis:

This volume offers an overview of the Enlightenment's revolution of Western theology. It explains the era's ideas within the framework of religion, politics, and society--and shows how they impacted that society.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [243]-247) and index.
