Essential Texts from the Enlightenment


Add to my list

We know that we are indebted to the Enlightenment thinkers for certain ideas of tolerance, liberty and progress but have we actually read the texts that served as the source of this revolution of human thought?

The author has gathered together the essential novels, stories, correspondence and poetry that helped light the fuse. Certain authors like Voltaire and Diderot are known by everyone but other Thinkers are lesser well-known or forgotten such as Marivaux, Buffon, Emilie du Châtelet, Bougainville, Meslier and Madame le Lambert.
