- In the history of classical philosophy, 18th century philosophy is called philosophy of enlightenment. BC In the 5th century, there was an ancient illumination or Greek illumination. Both of them are similar to the German thinker Immanuel Kant’s definition of enlightenment (Al-Aufklaerung). Both enlightenments were opposed to dogmatism (dogmatism) and were evaluated as a measure of human well-being. In both of them, speculation has been turned back, and human and cultural problems have been addressed. Both aimed at organizing the society and tried to spread the information to the public. The Greek enlighteners were scholars (sophists). In the 18th century enlightenment, the British thinker begins with Locke. Hume, Condillac and the French subjects are important representatives of this enlightenment. Then Kant and famous German thinkers (Fichte, Schelling, Hegel) became the developers of this enlightenment. The real philosophy of enlightenment took place in the 19th century.
