Paying attention to historical context reveals the Enlightenment ushering in the modern, replacing the otherworldly, hierarchical, and corporate assumptions of the ancien regime with new secular ideals of individualism, tolerance, cosmopolitanism and, above all else, notions of the rights of man.
Diverging from the conventional view of French philosopher, social theorist, and literary critic Michel Foucault (1926-84), as a postmodern stalwart, opposed the Enlightenment, Iliopoulos argues that he was neither an anti-Enlightenment thinker who rejected reason and truth, nor a defender of the Enlightenment who had come to abandon his earlier preoccupation with the interpretation of power and knowledge.
Since the United States of America has undertaken the role of institutionalizating and preserving liberal Enlightenment in the twentieth century, the relationship of the founding fathers to enlightenment must be well understood.
It is in the reflection about this encounter and the electric shock between decolonialism and Enlightenment Nikita Dhawan's book gains relevance.
Manjapra identifies Enlightenment science with three features; "the search for rational universal laws that authoritatively categorized, arranged and ordered the natural and the human domains" (8); "the idea of the 'rational' individual as the observer, knower, and master of his or her environment" (8); and "positivistic subjectivism" (10).
To make this defense, he must argue against the view that sees in the Enlightenment the cause of the French Revolution with its Reign of Terror, the horror that foreshadowed the unspeakable atrocities of our own day.
