Enlightenment Contested: Philosophy, Modernity, and the Emancipation of Man, 1670-1752

Oxford University Press (2006)
Abstract
The first major reassessment of the Western Enlightenment for a generation. Continuing the story he began in Radical Enlightenment, Jonathan Israel now focuses on the first half of the eighteenth century. He traces to their roots the core principles of Western modernity: the primacy of reason, democracy, racial equality, feminism, religious toleration, sexual emancipation, and freedom of expression.
