Aspects of the Enlightenment: Aesthetics, Politics, and Religion

Endre Szécsényi (Editor), Ferenc Hörcher (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This volume brings together the forefront of recent Enlightenment research in Hungary to map out the complex web of Enlightenment ideas with its manifold ideological and spiritual strata and the ways the different modes of inquiries inseminated and fertilised each other. It takes the Enlightenment as a common enterprise of the European intellectual elites, while also pointing out the different and competing spiritual climates of some of the most important national cultural traditions. The volume introduced by an essay of Peter Jones offers alternative cross-sectional views of the representative ideas in Enlightenment art, philosophy, politics, morality and religion.
