Italian for “enlightenment,” the Illuminismo
idea has its roots in the Age of Reason and
reflects the radical intellectual upheaval of
the 17th and 18th centuries when individu-
als, amidst newly emerging freedoms, used
reason and a scientific approach to inquire
into the nature of knowledge.
We believe that today’s issues demand the
same keen attention and open discourse.
