TZVETAN TODOROV 'S DEFENCE OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT Derek Meakin 26/11/2019 10:30
The Enlightenment has been controversial from its inception. In the 18th century it was bitterly opposed by the Counter Enlightenment but powerfully defended by Immanuel Kant. The debate has continued, with some viewing it as an engine of moral progress, while others blame it for 20th century atrocities. Having already studied John Gray's scathing criticism of the Enlightenment, we turn next to a strong defence of it by the French philosopher Tzvetan Todorov, to see if we can adjudicate between these two positions. Please note that we have agreed that, if we have time before the end of the meeting, we will also look at John Gray's book Seven Types of Atheism (2018) as a prelude to to a more detailed study. All welcome, no previous knowledge philosophy is necessary Enquiries: johnsonvlntn@aol.com
