“The Radical Enlightenment” – Diametros Volume 40

Volume 40 of the online philosophy journal Diametros (available here) focuses on “The Radical Enlightenment.”  The main event is the latest in the ongoing series of exchanges between Jonathan Israel and Margaret C. Jacob, along with discussions of Israel’s work by Sebastian Gardner and Przemysław Gut.  The issue also includes articles by Eric Schliesser on Toland and Smith, Bert van Roermund on the Code Civil, Zbigniew Drozdowicz on Voltaire, a discussion of the role of rights, responsibilities, and republicanism in the Enlightenment by Kenneth Westphal, and my thoughts on Burke and Gillray (at least some of which may already be familiar to readers of this blog).
