Age of Enlightenment

Over the edge shows
What happened to the age of Enlightenment?

This is my (Nigel Aves) first attempt at doing a "Talking Head" video, it's 16 minutes long, and yes, there are a couple of "oops" in there!

A look back at the Age of Enlightenment, and asking the question, "Where did it go in America?"

This video explains what the age of Enlightenment was, it's purpose, and why it was important. How Americans of the time believed in the concepts, and adopted those concepts. People like  Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

We then look at how the Religious Right seems to have no understanding of the actual bible that they cherry pick from.

The Age of Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, was an intellectual and cultural movement that spanned the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe. It emerged as a response to the challenges posed by religious dogmatism, superstition, and absolute monarchy prevalent during that time. The Enlightenment emphasized reason, science, individualism, and skepticism of traditional authority, including the authority of the church and the state.

Key figures of the Enlightenment include philosophers, writers, and scientists such as Isaac Newton, John Locke, Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Denis Diderot, Immanuel Kant, and many others. They promoted ideas that sought to challenge established beliefs, promote rational thinking, and advance knowledge in various fields.

The Enlightenment had a profound impact on various aspects of society, including politics, philosophy, science, literature, and the arts. It laid the intellectual groundwork for the American and French Revolutions and contributed to the rise of modern democratic principles and the concept of human rights.

Overall, the Age of Enlightenment played a crucial role in shaping the development of modern Western thought and society, emphasizing the importance of reason, freedom, and human progress.
