    Teaching the Enlightenment in the Twenty-First Century.Erik Goldner - 2021 - Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines 32 (1):19-36.
    This article presents both practical tips for, and explores theoretical considerations related to, teaching the Enlightenment in the twenty-first century college classroom. It begins by reviewing some of the many resources instructors today can use as they guide their students through the Enlightenment. It then explores how scholars’ understanding of the period has changed over time, before examining what students learn about the Enlightenment before they come to college, and then considers the politics of teaching the Enlightenment today. The article (...)

    Whatever Happened to Voltaire?G. K. Noyer - 2021 - Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines 32 (1):83-105.
    The eighteenth century French Enlightenment writers—Voltaire and Montesquieu especially—were cited in American textbooks as the thinkers who most influenced the founding generation of America until at least the 1970s. They still are, throughout much of the world. And rightly so, as studies of colonial periodicals and pamphlets have largely shown. When and why did they disappear from our high school textbooks? When Voltaire is mentioned at all, it is only as the author of Candide. This essay focuses on Voltaire as (...)

    Enlightenment and Education, Then and Now.Adrian O'Connor - 2021 - Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines 32 (1):61-82.
    Ideas about education and its power to transform people’s intellectual, social, political, and personal lives were central to Enlightenment thought. They were also central to the Enlightenment belief that new ways of thinking engendered new ways of living. Taken together, these points placed education at the heart of early modern debates over the constitution of society, the organization and administration of the polity, the nature and purpose of civil society, and the relations that govern everyday life. To understand this view (...)

    Education During the Enlightenment: Women Engaging Critical Inquiry.Laura Talamante & Jasmine Abang - 2021 - Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines 32 (1):37-59.
    Until the late seventeenth-century, French women had limited access to education. This article explores the openings that the Enlightenment provided for reconceptualizing women’s education, and how women used their roles as salonnières and novelists to challenge gendered educational limits. Using the lenses of education and gender norms, we highlight women’s intellectual contributions to the French Enlightenment and the history of ideas and emphasize the role of critical thinking in creating gender equality. With this scholarship, we encourage students to reflect on (...)
