Synopsis

In exploring how the Enlightenment continues to operate as a powerful guiding principle in Western politics, "The Threat to Reason" reveals how the truly pressing threats to free inquiry reside within the allegedly enlightened institutions of state and corporation. In recovering the concept of Enlightenment from its self-appointed defenders, "The Threat to Reason" demonstrates its crucial importance to a truly democratic politics, rather than a political performance in which we remain merely spectators.
