Philosophy for Lunch: What is Enlightment?

Thursday, November 12, 2020 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

In December of 1784, the philosopher Immanuel Kant published an article in a journal with the opening line: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-incurred immaturity." The article went on to become one of the most influential accounts of the values of the Enlightenment. Therein, Kant urges us to have the 'courage to use our own reason' and he suggests that what prevents us from thinking for ourselves is laziness and a lack of courage. In this week's Philosophy for Lunch, we will read passages from Kant's famous text in order to understand more about enlightenment and what we need to do to achieve it, as individuals and as a community.
