Above section meets with Hist-H 615

This course will have a double focus.  On the one hand, it will
provide an introduction to a crucial set of Enlightenment texts,
including, among others, Rousseau, Diderot, Hume, Kant, and a
variety of lesser known writers.  On the other hand, it will provide
an introduction to recent and classic historiography on the
Enlightenment, with particular focus on eighteenth-century politics,
culture, and religion.  It will be broadly European in scope
(including England), and will range from c.a. 1680 until 1800.
