  • the Enlightenment and Counter Enlightenment
  • Romanticism
  • the voice of Science and the process of secularization within Western intellectual thought

Review:

What [Bentley] accomplishes in a mere 160 pages is astonishing: a lucid, enlightening, often witty, convincing, and pithy survey of the field since the Enlightenment. This is an important book whose use will benefit a great majority of those, at every level, involved in investigating historical materials.
