The Enlightenment was a philosophical, intellectual and cultural movement from about 1680 to 1820. It stressed reason, logic, criticism and freedom of thought over dogma, blind faith and superstition.
‘Logic’ was now included in a worldview which argued that empirical observation and the examination of human life could reveal the truth behind human society and self, as well as the universe.
The Enlightenment Room is an enriching exhibition in the British Museum providing an introduction to the philosophical movement, housing a collection of curious objects to demonstrate how people in Britain understood their world during this time.
These objects reveal the way in which travellers during the age of discovery viewed and classified objects from the world around them; and how our understanding of the world of nature and human achievement has changed over time.
