Some videos about Enlightenment

These are two very interesting videos about the Age of Reason.

- The first one gives a good definition of Enlightenemt and focused on the precedents, mainly the 17th century Scientific Revolution. It talks about Rationalism and Empiricism, the main scientists and their discoveries and the last minutes explain the main ideas of some enlightened philosophers. The video includes a final test to check if you have understood the basic information. 

- The second video comes from the University of Nottingham. Some experts explain the meaning of Enlightenment
