Tha Anti-Enlightenment—The Rise of the Uninformed
The European Enlightenment, particularly in France and Scotland, gave rise to what we now fondly refer to as the “Age of Reason.” These days, it often seems that we have lost that precious foothold. This workshop examines the animating ideas of the Enlightenment now being undercut in the effort to catalogue the “dumbing down” of American culture in our time. But we will also find reason to believe that the gains of the Enlightenment—reason, justice, human improvement, and the better society—are not lost and, really, cannot be.
