The Enlightenment Period

Submitted by • November 26, 2013

The Enlightenment period is an era in western philosophy, culture, scientific and intellectual life that was established in the 18th century to designate reason as the cause for legitimacy, as well as, authority. This period was faced by subsequent questioning of values and morals of the traditional society while giving much credit to rationale, as well as, scientific explanation of events.
