Review of Samuel Fleischacker, What is Enlightenment?

My review of Samuel Fleischacker’s What is Enlightenment? (Routledge, 2013) has now been published on Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.  Readers of this blog will likely find Fleischacker’s work of interest and my comments on it somewhat predictable.  I can only hope that, like Tristram Shandy, “my hobby-horse … is no way a vicious beast; he has scarce one hair or lineament of the ass about him.” And I trust that everyone is properly grateful for the existence of  Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, a peerless demonstration of what academic publishing might become in the age of digital reproducibility.
