Lightbulb Free (DRM-free) Oplysningens verden [Danish Enlightenment History Culture Overview]

Oplysningens verden: Idé, historie, videnskab, kunst (The World of the Enlightenment: Ideas, history, knowledge, art) edited by Ole Høiris & Thomas Ledet, is a volume in their Verdensbøger series of Danish-language self-contained titles which provide a comprehensive introductory overview to cultural and historical periods, this volume covering the post-Renaissance Age of Enlightenment which was at its peak during the 18th century, free courtesy of the Aarhus University Press in Denmark.

This is their Danish-language Free Book of the Month selection for December. Once again, this is a very substantial overview of the time period and movement, with plenty of essays devoted to various specialized topics about literature etc. from assorted countries, as well as the general interest introductory stuff, lavishly illustrated with period paintings, documents, and photographs. We've previously received the Renaissance volume of this as a freebie as well.

Currently free throughout December directly @ the university's dedicated promo page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide), and you can read more about the title on its regular catalogue page.

This is a ~30 mb file which you probably don't want to download on a device that has data limits.

Beskrivelse på dansk
Feudalismens økonomi i Europa kulminerede, den industrielle revolution med dampmaskinen satte i gang, og europæerne systematiserede global arbejdsdeling og handel med totalt herredømme til søs og magtfulde kolonier rundt om i verden. Nu var verden og livet ikke længere styret af Gud, men af fornuftige love, som mennesket kunne erkende og udnytte, og de menneskelige fællesskaber baserede sig på frie og lige menneskers indgåelse af en fornuftig kontrakt.

Oplysningen var, med Immanuel Kants berømte definition, menneskets udgang af dets selvforskyldte umyndighed, og oplysningens valgsprog formulerede han som "Hav mod til at betjene dig af din egen forstand!".

Denne verdsliggjorte verdensopfattelse med dens udvikling af en empirisk erkendelsestradition har sammen med det globale udsyn været et helt specielt europæisk fænomen. Måske finder vi heri det egentlige grundlag for Europas politiske og økonomiske verdensherredømme, som derefter udviklede sig, og for den videnskabsopfattelse, som stadig er globalt dominerende. Dette var perioden, hvor de eksperimentelle videnskaber blev grundlagt, og hvor varetagelsen af dem blev lagt ind i det, der blev til det moderne universitet.

Både oplysningstidens mangfoldighed og dens grundlæggende betydning for nutiden viser sig i de mange forskellige bidrag, dette værks forfattere - alle forskere på det nye store Aarhus Universitet - ud fra mange forskellige faglige perspektiver bidrager med. Bogen er en mosaik af oplysningstidens vigtigste tanker og begivenheder og ligger i forlængelse af Renæssancens Verden.

Just a reminder that today will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie, if you're interested.
