It is the term used to describe that crucial, exciting period between the late 17th century and the French Revolution - the great age of rationalism and tolerance, an age of boundless curiosity about the physical universe and the nature of the human mind, a rejection of superstition and a growing reliance on observation and experiment to arrive at the truth. Here is an enthralling journey which, at every level - from coffee-house conversation to astronomy, from voyages of discovery to the investigation of dreams, from the first dictionaries and encyclopaedias to new attitudes to marriage and the rights of women - reflects the intellectual revolution that transformed, and is still transforming, our consciousness.
