QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY!

Age of Enlightenment-(or simply the Enlightenment) is the era in Western Philosophy, intellectual, scientific and cultural life, centered upon the 18th century, in which reason was advocated as the primary source for ligitimacy and authority It is also known as the Age of Reason.

The "Enlightenment" was not a single movement or school of thought, for these philosophies were often mutually contradictory or divergent. The Enlightenment was less a set of ideas than it was a set of values. At its core was a critical questioning of traditional institutions, customs, and morals, and a strong belief in rationality and science. Thus, there was still a considerable degree of similarity between competing philosophies. Some historians also include the late 17th century as part of the Enlightenment. Modernity, by contrast, is used to refer to the period after The Enlightenment; albeit generally emphasizing social conditions rather than specific philosophies.
