So far in this series, we’ve covered a lot of war, disease, climate disaster, and some more war. Well, prepare yourself for something a little more positive. This week, we’re talking about the Enlightenment. In this video, you’ll learn about the ideas of Voltaire, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Kant, Smith, Hume, and a bunch of other people whose ideas have been so impactful, they still influence the way we think about the world today.
