"Enlightenment thinkers advanced the commons of human knowledge, of primarily physical-material subjects, through applying the scientific method, thru the lens of the intellect. They promoted more objective; and therefore, more useful scientific ideas, skepticism and intellectual interchange to counter and oppose superstition, intolerance and some abuses of power by the church and the state. The ideas of the Enlightenment have had a major impact on the culture, politics, and governments of the Western world." -Wiki #age_of_enlightenment #Voltaire
