    One thought on “التنوير”

    1. A wholly terrible introduction to the Enlightenment, mostly because it barely discusses the Enlightenment, Enlightenment thinkers, and patterns of Enlightenment thought Yes, yes, yes the Enlightenment was complicated, diverse, and patchy, we get that, but give us some shit about what was going down Wasted space on arbitrary musings about the way gender and science affected and affected by the big E The chapter on science is unholy and bad There are random plates of historical figures that aren t [...]

    2. Outram did not provide what I expected, instead offering a bunch of hints about the Enlightement, instead of definitive statements Wonderful hints as she offers a social context among coffee houses and a rising consumer culture and as she connects Enlightenent ideas to exploration, government, slavery, gender, science, religion, and revolution Historians have clouded the belief of a great unitary march of reason and Outram shows how the pieces have fallen They are great hints.

    3. Really good survey for beginners of 18th century studies It looks at the Enlightenment in a expansive sense how it related to areas modern studies are concerned with race and gender as well as including America in its geography as well as the classic topics of economics, religion and the marketplace of ideas It s only just over 150 pages so if you have a decent grip on the Enlightenment it may appear shallow in some respects, but as an introduction, it s an effective and expansive overview of t [...]

    4. Up until about twenty years ago, Dorinda Outram writes, historians tended to see the Enlightenment as homogenous and basically unified in thought and action, as a process in which human reason and science could guide human affairs, change society, and liberate the individual from the restrains of custom or arbitrary authority Outram s synthesis of the subject, however, emphasizes the diversity at the heart of the Enlightenment and suggests that the changing ways of understanding the era reflect [...]

    5. A typical example of Modern Academic Style evasive, equivocal, non committal everything is problematic It has some potential although unpleasurable use as an indication of the current state of academic debates concerning the Enlightenment although on that score, it will go out of date fast , and it can point one in the direction of some better books, such as Albion W Small s The Cameralists, an interesting, confident 1909 study that can still be read with pleasure and profit one hundred years af [...]

    6. Rather than being a history of the Enlightenment, this revisionist work part of the new approaches to European history series mostly surveys ways of thinking about the enlightenment from contemporary to current scholarship Its arguments are, in a way, predictably contrary to common opinion the Enlightenment was not a unified body of thought centered in France it contained many contradictions it was not completely anti religious it relied on non European cultures and women for some of its argumen [...]

    7. As an introduction to the Enlightenment, this book works well It is a bit repetitive, although this may be to aid the reader who wishes to read only one or two seperate chapters Unlike other books like this that I have read, Outram keeps remembering to write about women, and not only remark who had a clever mistress, or cram it all into two pages and then thinking that s enough She may not however be very original in her conclusions, and as someone reading this for a university course, I would h [...]

    8. Excellent book Very interesting This period saw the opening of arguments on the nature of man, truth, on the place of God, and the international circulation of ideas, people and commerce This book proves invaluable reading to whoever wants to study eighteenth century history, philosophy, and the history of ideas

    9. This was required reading for a class I m taking on the Enlightenment I wouldn t have picked up a historiography on my own, but this wasn t bad The first few chapters are nothing new if you re familiar with the Enlightenment and common scholarly thought surrounding it I found the later chapters that addressed Enlightenment and women gender, slavery, and religion to be very interesting.

    10. Good What I enjoyed the most was the constant questioning of assumptions and conclusions A discussion as much on the Enlightenment as a period in time and a movement, but also of thoughts on Enlightenment.Slightly cumbersome read when you re not that knowledgeable about the Enlightenment.

    11. Nice overview of the era, written by one of my college professors at the University of Rochester I learned a lot in her classes.
