Part 1: Some of the more characteristic doctrines of the Enlightenment focused on the power and goodness of human rationality:1) Reason is the most significant and positive capacity of the human;2) reason enables one to break free from primitive, dogmatic, and superstitious beliefs holding one in the bonds of irrationality and ignorance;3) in realizing the liberating potential of reason, one not only learns to think correctly, but to act correctly as well;4) through philosophical and scientific progress, reason can lead humanity as a whole to a state of earthly perfection;5) reason makes all humans equal and, therefore, deserving of equal liberty and treatment before the law;6) beliefs of any sort should be accepted only on the basis of reason, and not on traditional or priestly authority; and7) all human endeavors should seek to impart and develop knowledge, not feelings or character.
