The Essence of Enlightenment
There have been these sort of ‘popping points’ in human history, huge light bulb moments that have shifted us as a species into new ways of thinking and being. Moments where we really questioned who we are, what life means and how we should live it well, as both individuals and together. One of these moments was The Enlightenment otherwise known as ‘The Century of Lights’ – an intellectual and philosophical movement that dominated the world of ideas in the 18th century. Central to Enlightenment thought was to review and regenerate culture and society, and the means by which humans understand the universe and improve their own condition. It was an awakening and a waking up. There was a breaking down and opening up of ideas around knowledge, freedom, meaning and civic life. It sparked an explosion of revolutionary developments in art, philosophy and politics, because the idea of all people being involved in the development of our collective consciousness came to the fore.
