The French Enlightenment

David A. Bell

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

The French Enlightenment was one of the most intensely creative and significant episodes in the History of Western thought. This course will provide an introduction to its major works. Each class meeting will have three parts: a 50-minute meeting in small groups with the instructor focused on analyzing selected passages from the assigned texts; a 50-minute general discussion with all course participants; and a prerecorded 50-minute background lecture on the subsequent week’s readings.
