THE RESULT: The Enlightenment was the start of democracy

and also the start of science in this world. It is the root of the

technical and scientific world we see today. It was a contributing

factor in the American and French Revolutions. Enlightenment

thinking reflected in the U. S. Declaration of Independence.

European thought became centered on the belief in reason, science,

individual rights, and the progress of civilization.
