Shining a light on the Enlightenment

What is worth preserving is the emancipatory impulse of the Enlightenment

Virtue was institutinalised during the French Revolution however Enlightenment rationality gave rise to new and insidious forms of its own
for instance the Terror enacted after the French Revolution was driven by a rational notion
of virtue as enlightenment 'moral' ideas were put into practise by way of the guillotine as principles unfolded into revolutionary violence
