The Enlightenment: Crash Course European History #18

So far in this series, we’ve covered a lot of war, disease, climate disaster, and some more war. Well, prepare yourself for something a little more positive.

This week, we’re talking about the Enlightenment.

In this video, you’ll learn about the ideas of Voltaire, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Kant, Smith, Hume, and a bunch of other people whose ideas have been so impactful, they still influence the way we think about the world today.

Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished World History, we will be watching Crash Course’s European History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday. Enjoy!
