Super enlightenment

Provides access to a digital collection of primarily eighteenth-century French language electronic texts of mythology, alchemy, science, divine arcana, and secret societies. The collection is the product of a working thesis on the part of the project"s coordinators, that rather than constituting a break with Enlightenment ideals, these semi-occultic themed treatises demonstrate a profound continuity with the vision and values of Enlightenment rationalism, despite transgressing the bounds of the sensible (humanly knowable) world. From the perspective of orthodox, main stream philosophical research, this is a small collection of philosophically marginal texts. At best, this is a narrowly focused specialist resource specifically tailored for a select coterie of researchers in mid-eighteenth to late nineteenth-century French intellectual history. Generally not worth consulting by the generalist philosophical researcher
