      History of Europe - History of Europe - The Enlightenment: The Enlightenment was both a movement and a state of mind. The term represents a phase in the intellectual history of Europe, but it also serves to define programs of reform in which influential literati, inspired by a common faith in the possibility of a better world, outlined specific targets for criticism and proposals for action. The ideals of the Enlightenment philosophy were put into action by the French Revolution. David illustrated these ideals as he chronicled the revolution. In the Death of Socrates the subject is the symbol of the enlightenment himself: Socrates. The ancient Greeks had the first enlightenment - the struggle between superstition and reason.

        What connection exists between the Enlightenment and the French Revolution? The Enlightenment was a movement that took place in the eighteenth century. It occurred when the writers and critics at that time established new philosophies about change. Science, reason and common sense began to take the lead in society and it’s attitudes and actions. The Intellectual movement known as the Enlightenment occupies an important position in the growth of Western civilization. How it totally affected society, especially French society is a subject of debate, from the beginning of the Revolution to today. In fact, two schools of interpretation are involved. The first school is the conservative school, Edmund Burke is the best example.

      Jean-Jacques Rousseau The Enlightenment occurred during the 18th century, in the decades before the outbreak of the revolution and although the Enlightenment took place many years before the outbreak of the French Revolution, its ideas and achievements still had a profound effect on the French Revolution.
