“The Enlightenment was a flight of Icarus from the mind that extended through the 17th and 18th centuries. A vision of secular knowledge in the service of human rights and human progress was the West’s greatest contribution to civilization. It started the modern era for the whole world; we all are its heirs”.
Edward O. Wilson

This series of works presents a critical reading of the unquestionable role and subsequent impact of the Revolution of Reason in the history of Western thought. Focusing attention on the origins, but above all on the legacy of the Enlightenment, it proposes a reflection on the subsequent implementation -in every sense dictatorial- of the concepts of rationality and progress that govern the West.
