    Between the late 17th century and the French Revolution, the age of the Enlightenment was one of rationalism and intellectual curiosity, the rejection of superstition and a growing reliance on observation and experiment to arrive at the truth. Dorinda Outram places Enlightenment ideas in their widest context and explores their impact across social, cultural and political life, using some 400 illustrations as an integral part of a discussion that ranges from Diderot's Encylopedie to science and medicine.
