What are the wider implications of different concepts of human nature?’ I have citied the main principles of this discussion and I have understood the facts and yet there is so much so depends on our conception of human nature. Enlightenment against Empire is the first book devoted to the anti-imperialist political philosophies of an age often regarded as affirming imperial ambitions. Sankar Muthu argues that thinkers such as Denis Diderot, Immanuel Kant, and Johann Gottfried Herder developed an understanding of humans as inherently cultural agents and therefore.

      These notions were set early in the French Enlightenment and strengthened as the century progressed. Enlightenment thinkers were acutely aware of the astonishing diversity of human societies and values, but they understood full well that this diversity occurred within a world of natural consequences. Enlightenment thinkers at this time began to apply rational thoughts to figure out and understand nature and to guide their human existence. The Enlightenment was the great rebirth and re-creation of world-view brought about by the scientific revolution. It glorified the ability of reason and was an era of thought and intellectual accomplishment.
