Question 1 | Pergunta 1

Eighteenth-century attitude towards life in general, both from an individual and collective perspective, was ingrained with hope. Kant encapsulated this very same idea in his well-known motto: “Sapere aude”. If men – and perhaps women – dared to know, they would be able to decide better how to build their own lives and to mold society in a more prosperous and fairer way. The belief on man’s rational ability vindicated by Descartes, and emphasised by other rationalists ensured that possibility. The Nuova Scienza, as Vico named it, and the recent technologies proved it to be true; experimentalists contributed to the discovery and understanding of the natural world; and the philosophes helped to disseminate this solid Modernity, an enlightening era, if not yet enlightened.

Nowadays, the belief in humankind’s rational and sensorial abilities has become an acquired factor and science and technology do not cease to amaze us with new discoveries and gadgets aiming to offer us a longer, more stable and comfortable life. However, most men and women seem to have lost their enthusiasm. They question their pursuit of happiness, in either a material or transcendental path. Relativism undermined established values, and doubt and uncertainty gain momentum.

Why does Modernity’s faith in progress seem to have melted away? Why does our current liquid modernity – to use Zygmunt Bauman’s well-known expression – reflects instead, more often than not, a dystopic assessment of society?

Question 2 | Pergunta 2

“After all that as been said, and in spite of all the highs and lows, of alternating periods of censorship and freedom of speech, of the rule of anonimity imposed to the periodists for social, political and moral reasons, the big question is:
How far can the study of British Media be actually relevant for a deeper and thorough understanding of the essence and nature of the Age of Enlightenment in Britain, both in cultural and literary terms?”

Question 3 | Pergunta 3

How modern is 18th century social and cultural criticism?
