Item Description...
It has become increasingly clear in recent years that, for all their differences, the many varieties of thinking commonly grouped together under the rubric of "postmodernism" share at least one salient characteristic: they all depend upon a stereotyped account of the Enlightenment. Postmodernity requires a "modernity" to be repudiated and superseded, and the tenets of this modernity have invariably been identified with the so-called Enlightenment Project. This volume aims to explore critically the now conventional opposition between Enlightenment and Postmodernity and question some of the conclusions drawn from it.
In so doing, the authors focus on three general areas. Part I, "Enlightenment or Postmodernity?," reflects on the way in which contemporary discussion characterizes the two movements as radical alternatives. Part II, "Critical Confrontations," provides a kind of archaeology of this opposition by charting a series of critical engagements by those who have affirmed or demeaned Enlightenment values in the twentieth century. Part III, "A Postmodern Enlightenment?," complicates the perceived dichotomy between Enlightenment and Postmodernity by pointing to the existence within the Enlightenment of elements frequently seen as characteristic of Postmodernity.
The contributors are Lorraine Daston, Dena Goodman, David Hollinger, Lawrence E. Klein, Jonathan Knudsen, Michael Meranze, Richard Rorty, Hans Sluga, and Johnson Kent Wright.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Brilliant Anthology  Feb 26, 2002
This remarkable book reexamines the intellectual history of eighteenth century France and Germany in order to bring to light a richer, more nuanced view of this pivotal period. More specifically, many writers, commonly characterized as "post-modernist," have used the European Enlightenment as a "whipping boy" in order to promote their own vision of the history of ideas. The editors use a very judicious strategy in order to analyze this tendency to attenuate the richness of 18th century European culture: they choose essays that are about the Enlightenment; they also choose essays that expose how the dubious dichotomy, "Postmodernity v. Enlightenment" came into being. Every one of the essays in this collection is of great intellectual rigor and constitutes a serious contribution to the enduring question, "What is Enlightenment?" This volume deals frontally with the important issue of the role of women during this time. The essays in this book are energetically, interestingly argued, and the editors have chosen a very stimulating organizational approach; they have divided the book into three sets of problems: "Enlightenment or Postmodernity?," "Critical Confrontations," and "A Postmodern Enlightenment." Essays dealing with postmodernism tend to be arcane or incomprehensible; the essays in this book are difficult, challenging, and wonderfully readable.
