Define the Enlightenment. Is it best seen as a single movement or as a series of related movements? What was the relationship of the Enlightenment to the New Science? How did the Enlightenment further the idea of progress and the superiority of European civilization?

Welcome to the Forum.

Well, that's quite a big question. May I ask what course you are studying? This may help us answer you. We will have a dig around and get back to you soon.

Not having much luck with this so far, I'm afraid. However, I will try and give you some ideas tomorrow as to where to look. Apologies for the delay.

Ouch!

I can remember LOVING this subject 40+ years ago at A-level - I devoured a great book by Norman Hampson, but I'm sure that will be old-hat now!

Mr Bryant is correct; it will be very difficult to advise unless you can tell us the exam/ board/ specification.

Your studies HAVE to begin with your textbook; then worth a google on google-books.
