Summary
Known as the ‘Age of Enlightenment,’ the 1700s was a time that provoked significant leaps in philosophical thought.

Most importantly, the thinkers of the time espoused the virtues of happiness, the evidence provided by the senses, and the distance between organised religion and the state.

‘500 Quotations from the Great Philosophers of the 18th Century’ offers a fascinating insight into the philosophical revolution that was taking place at the time.

A superb book for dipping in and out of, this makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in philosophy.
