Ward Lock Educational, 1984, Paperback ..

From the cover: “Although The Age of Enlightenment was specifically designed as a combined course reader and anthology for the Open University Course A2O4 The Enlightenment, it should be of considerable interest both to other students of the period and to the general reader wanting to get to grips with this fascinating age, not second-hand through a history textbook, but directly through the actual writing of the time. In this, students of the eighteenth century are particularly fortunate, for many of its greatest thinkers and controversialists were also outstanding stylists whose writings are as entertaining as they are important.
