Enlightenment and Romanticism

Enlightenment: “The demand to produce strictly rational explanations of the human and scientific worlds.”

Romanticism: “A mode of rationality that sought to acknowledge fully the dimensions of unknowability and contingency within human experience.”

Quotes taken from Richard Crouter, Friedrich Schleiermacher: Between Enlightenment and Romanticism (Cambridge: 2005), 8.
