What Is Enlightenment
Answer the prompt with the attached pdf file.PROMpT#1: In his essay “What is Enlightenment?” Immanuel Kant draws a distinction between how people should act in their “private” and “public” roles—and, to be clear, in drawing this distinction, he is defining “private” as “professional.” In contrasting these roles, he argues that “The public use of one’s reason must always be free, and it alone can bring about enlightenment among men” (104). What is he getting at with this distinction? He talks of priests and kings to illustrate his argument, but can you think of more contemporary examples to explain the meaning and significance of his point?PROMPT #2: As a picaresque novella, Candide moves quickly from one adventure to another, each poking fun at some aspect of European society in the 1700s. What part of Candide resonated with you the most? Why?
