Here is the most comprehensive and an accessible visual sourcebook and survey of the Enlightenment - its people, its horizons, its defining characteristics, its whole culture - ever published. In over 300 pages, it follows the men and women of the Enlightenment in their search for definition and redefinition of the values of their time, an enthralling journey which, at every level - from coffee-house conversation to astronomy, from voyages of discovery to the investigation of dreams, from the first dictionaries and encyclopaedias to new attitudes to marriage and the rights of women - reflects the intellectual revolution that transformed, and continues to inform, our consciousness.
