The Enlightenment and modernity by Norman Geras ( )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"To what extent is the Enlightenment the ghost that haunts modernity? Why do we trace our institutions of economic liberalism, our charters of human rights, our notions of representative democracy, our doctrines of the nation-state, or our disciplines of psychology and sociology to Enlightenment principles?

From the Enlightenment, above all other periods in our intellectual history, is drawn our belief in the unity of theory and practice. Each of these essays is addressed to the legacy of eighteenth-century thought. They offer interpretations of modern and postmodern philosophers against the background of a so-called Enlightenment Project."--BOOK JACKET
