Philosophy in the Enlightenment

Monday | September 30 
2:15 pm - 6:00 pm | MCL251
Open to the Public 

During the Enlightenment, thinkers in Eighteenth century Britain and France deliberately sought to create space for conversation and debate about religion, education, love, revolution and reform, among other ideas.  Speakers will examine the particular historical and social context of these ideas, as well as the enduring legacy of the Enlightenment.
