Narrator Jonathan Keeble's warm voice elucidates the enduring works of the thinkers, writers, and practical philosophers known as "Enlighteners" in this sweeping account of the influential period of Western history between 1680 and 1790. Author Robertson uses literature, particularly fiction, to illuminate the attitudes and philosophies of this period of great intellectual exploration and vibrant discussion of concepts such as happiness, the rights of man, humanitarian values, and the nature of human sensibility. Keeble shifts his rich voice to deeper tones to denote quotations and passages from Enlighteners. This extensive period of the creative intermingling of philosophy, science, and literature is brought to life through Keeble's performance, which captivates listeners from the beginning to the end of this lengthy audiobook.
