Themes include The High Enlightenment, Polite Culture and the Arts, Reforming the World, Material and Popular Culture and Transformations and Explorations, and the work covers topics as diverse as government, fashion, craftsmen and artisans, philanthropy, cross-cultural encounters, feminism, censorship, science and education.
This volume will provide essential reading for all students of the Enlightenment.
