Enlightenment = conversations with God

what is enlightenment ?

Enlightenment

is man’s emergence from his self-incurred imaturity .

Immaturity

is the inability to use one’s own understanding without the guidance of another .

This immaturity

is self-incurred if its cause is not lack of understanding ,

but

lack of resolution and courage to use it without the guidance of another .

The motto of enlightenment

is therefore :

Sapere aude !

Have courage to use your own understanding!

by

IMMANUEL KANT

Konigsberg in Prussia, 30th September, 1784.
