Asked in Philosophy and Philosophers
How did philosophers challenge the authority?
Suppose a philosopher says, ignorance is devil. Then it would also mean, knowledge is god, which was enough for authorities to think that the philosopher was challenging them, for they had taught people that the Authority- King- was god. The job of the philosopher is to teach, not challenge, but examples like this can also be taken as subtle ways of challenging authorities. We know, it is ignorant and illiterate authorities who think philosophers are challenging them through their teachings. A Solomon or a Shibi or a Vikramaditya will not be challenged for they themselves were learned and wise, and philosophers themselves. That is why we come to the point raised by Plato- the concept of the inevitability of a Philosopher-King.

Asked in Big Bang Theory (scientific model)
Is the big bang theory a strong challenge to the cosmological argument?
As far as I understand, the Big Bang theory is not a challenge to the cosmological argument at all. The cosmological argument states that there must have been a beginning to the universe, which is confirmed by modern science. The cosmological argument further is often held to indicate that that beginning must have been an intelligent agent, which is neither confirmed nor denied by cosmology.

Asked in Age of Enlightenment
What did the Enlightenment emphasized?
The Age of Enlightenment (or the Age of Reason) emphasized reason and individualism, rather than tradition. As an intellectual and cultural movement in late-17th century Europe, it had profound effects on the rest of the world and history. Those involved sought to reform society, challenge traditional ideas of faith, and advance scientific knowledge through the development of the scientific method. Skepticism and intellectualism were highly valued, while superstition and old ideas about the world were rejected. The most well-known and influential intellectuals involved were Francis Bacon, René Descartes, John Locke, Isaac Newton, and Voltaire.
