A comprehensive yet accessible resource on this time period, Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment, Revised Edition is a valuable and unique tool for students and the general public. Still the only one-volume encyclopedia on this intensively studied subject, the revised edition has been substantially expanded and thoroughly updated to include recent scholarship. In particular, the volume now covers a greater geographical area and a more diverse group of historical figures. Building on the foundation of the successful previous edition, Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment, Revised Edition addresses a core subject of the school curriculum. With broad cultural and geographical coverage, this valuable and authoritative reference features articles on general topics such as science, education, art and architecture, aesthetics, and music; personalities; countries; notable works; and concepts. For the revised edition, many of the core entries have been expanded, and all articles have been revised and updated based on current research. New material includes approximately 125 new entries, new illustrations, further reading lists with all major articles, a new preface, and a revised chronology, bibliography, and index.
