Enlightenment discourse developed during a period of prolonged European warfare. Although the Enlightenment is traditionally identified with the ideals of progress, eternal peace, reason, and self-determination, it is marked by its proximity to war. Enlightened War investigates the multiple and complex interactions between warfare and Enlightenment thought, making a case for their ideological affinity. The essays are interdisciplinary, engaging with history, art history, philosophy, military theory, gender studies, and literature and with historical events and cultural contexts from the early.
