Enlightenment is really the period of debate and philosophical ideas which our Western values has produced? Rienk Vermij sweeps the wealth of ideas of the Enlightenment are not under the carpet, but places that were in the political and social context of the time. By showing what specific problems the ideas were an answer, and what forces influenced its success, he thinks the role of the eighteenth-century thinkers and poets. The genie from the bottle examines in depth the changing relationship between church and state, discoveries and developments in science and the emergence of an active, informed citizenry. On the basis of a beautiful sketch of Europe in the eighteenth century Vermij makes clear that many issues from that time - such as integration, intolerance, teaching and education - are still relevant, and that the power of enlightened writers is that they are clear , formulated unambiguous solutions to problems that were not clearly soluble.
