LAPI 822 - Age of Reason, Age of Satire: 18th Century England

The cultural history of England in the eighteenth century, focusing on two preoccupations of the day: rationalism and satire.

The term closes with a discussion of the twentieth century satire, our legacy from the Enlightenment and Revolutionary periods.
