Book on Enlightenment and modern culture reaches Iranian readers
The book has been translated into Persian by Mas’oud Azarfam. Tehran-based Qoqnoos Publishing has released 'The Enlightenment and the Intellectual Foundations of Modern Culture' in 536 pages.
An eminent scholar of modern culture argues that the Enlightenment the importance of which has been vigorously debated in recent years was a more complex phenomenon than either its detractors or advocates assume.
This book had its origin in the surprise I experienced many years ago when considering the fundamental change in thinking and valuing that occurred during the period stretching from the second half of the seventeenth century until the end of the eighteenth.
English literary theorist, critic, and public intellectual Terry Eagleton comments on this book: "Ranging as it does over art, morality, religion, science, philosophy, social theory, and a good deal besides, [Dupré's book] is a marvel of scholarly erudition. . . . Formidably well-researched, . . . [this] would make an excellent introduction to Enlightenment ideas for the general reader.”
Louis Dupré is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy of Religion at Yale University. He is also the author of 'Passage to Modernity: An Essay in the Hermeneutics of Nature and Culture' and 'Marx's Social Critique of Culture', both available in paperback from Yale University Press.
