Book synopsis: In the early years of the twenty-first century, the ideas that were first proposed over two hundred years ago could not be more compelling. The Enlightenment rose out of the seventeenth century in response to upheaval and uncertainly and laid the foundation stone for modern society. The Britannica Guide to the Ideas that Changed the Modern World is from England, France and the Netherlands – Isaac Newton, John Locke, David Hume, Voltaire and Spinoza – whose work still demands our attention today.
