Enlightenment Thought and Inquiry
Another great study tool to use, it goes through the enlightenment, brief information on Locke, Voltaire, Goya and more. This is a great introduction and background of a few key concepts during the enlightenment such as literature, philosophy, patriotism, and progress. Progress was the most important thing during this time period. This is a great study tool to use just like the other instructor commentaries. This correlates directly to our current lesson as well as our current weblinks. Reading this commentary before the other weblinks helps put perspective on the subsequent readings.
