Enlightenment and Dissent


Enlightenment and Dissent

Sujet : Enlightenment and Dissent was founded in 1982 as the successor to the Price-Priestley Newsletter. The latter was concerned with Rational Dissent in late eighteenth-century England; Enlightenment and Dissent set out to broaden its scope within the area of what can be described as the British Enlightenment. The journal is not confined to English Enlightenment studies. It has explored important themes of general relevance to the Enlightenment, such as the relationship between religious and secular ideas, the tension between universalist ideas and emergent nationalism and between paternalism and individualism, the cross currents between popular and Enlightenment culture, the foundations of religious belief in the Enlightenment, the role of women in enlightened Dissent, and the place of science in Enlightenment thought. It has published work concerning the Enlightenment in America, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Germany, including substantial pieces which would not have found an outlet in journals preferring the short and snappy.
