While we still live in the ideological and political shadow of the enlightenment, we rarely entertain its complexity and differences. The enlightenment was more an arena of intellectual contestation than the simple progressive myth by which it is now mis-characterized. These works long difficult to obtain restore our access to the dynamic exchanges that marked this exciting philosophical period.
