Project #47890 - Humanities

Background to the discussion: Our textbook tells us that "The term Enlightenment refers to the eighteenth century European emphasis on the mind's power to reason" (p. 144). Enlightenment thinkers, known as philosophes, believed in rational humanism, "the belief that through rational, careful thought, progress -- which is good and benefits everyone -- is inevitable" (p.145). The ideas and ideals that powered the Enlightenment also laid the foundation for revolutionary political changes, culminating in the two great democratic revolutions of modern times: the American Revolution and the French Revolution. In Chapter 16 we are introduced to intellectuals, scientists, writers, composers, artists, and other historical figures whose contributions to the culture and history of their times embodied the beliefs and goals of the Enlightenment. But was there an Enlightenment for women, and has the Enlightenment had a continuing legacy for women as well as men? In this discussion, you will explore this question and draw your own conclusion.

 

Discussion Requirements: Before participating in the discussion, carefully review Chapter 16, including the chapter introduction (p. 145) and the "Then & Now" box on p. 149. Post a discussion thread of at least 100-150 words, discussing the role of women in the Enlightenment, using specific examples from the text (possibilities: Marie-Louise-Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, Adelaide Labille-Guiard, salons, Princess de Soubise, Olympe de Gouges, "Declaration of the Rights of Women," Mary Wollstonecraft, "A Vindication of the Rights of Women, Angelica Kauffmann, Jane Austen). How do the examples you selected reflect Enlightenment concerns and values? Finally, do you believe that the Enlightenment has had a continuing influence and impact on women down to the present? To receive full credit, be sure to reply to at least two other classmates' discussion threads.
