Deligiorgi, Katerina (2005) Kant and the Culture of Enlightenment (SUNY Series in Philosophy). State University of New York Press. ISBN 0791464695Full text not available from this repository.
Katerina Deligiorgi develops a framework for the interpetation of Kant's conception of enlightenment that is compatible with his broader philosophical project of a critique of reason. She identifies the theoretical and practical commitments that enable us to view the achievement of rational autonomy as an ongoing project for the realisation of a culture of enlightenment. Grounding her central thesis is grounded in a detailed analysis of a broad range of Kant's works and those of his contemporaries, she challenges twentieth-century revisionist interpretations of the Enlightenment, she shows that the 'culture of enlightenment' is not simply a fragment of our intellectual history but a live project.
