Summary: The "Enlightenment", which began in France, spread to other countries in Europe and then to America, shifted thinking from reliance on the Church to self reliance . It fostered a change from blind faith to inquiring minds. It encouraged the investigation of new ideas. It gave fuel to both the French and American Revolutions. The Enlightenment may not have left physical evidence behind, like the pyramids of Egypt or the Coliseum of Rome, but it has left an intellectual heritage which is unquestionable in its importance. It is a period of history intrinsically French in its origins but predominately American in its impact. Scholars of the Enlightenment from Yale University and UCLA share their insights in this video
