5.0 out of 5 stars A Text for all time, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are tempted to read a text which encourages independent thinking, then give in to the temptation to read this short piece by a Prussian philosopher. It was published in 1784. Yet it is fresh. It is vibrant. It is a call not to arms but to using your own understanding. It is call to think things out for yourself. When he wrote his polemic, he was thinking in particular about religious thinking. He wanted people to turn away from creeds and doctrines and rituals. But his call to independence applies well beyond religion. Use your own understanding -l it can be applied to to any matter which seriously affects our lives. Political parties, advertising, what the prime minister says, what the leader of the opposition says, what an estate agent says - listen but challenge. Apply your own critical capacity to what you've heard.

Written in 1784, What is Enhlightenment is a tract for our times. For all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very difficult read, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perpetual Peace (Paperback)
An excellent book. But treat it with respect, it will require your undivided attention for quite some time. The premise is very simple but the proof and elaboration are exceptionally complicated. Not a book for the casual reader. But very rewarding for someone who knows what they are getting into.

4.0 out of 5 stars A view into the arrangement of society and the complexities held therein, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An enlightened outlook into how societies arrange themselves and the almost certain maladies that we as people unavoidably incur upon ourselves, identifying the pains a thinking person suffers in seeing how the world is and is not as it should/could be.
