The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and
rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by
advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of
revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic
proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its
kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th
century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to
libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.
