Tartuffe: Response One

Kant wrote his famous essay “What is Enlightenment?” as a response to a call in a newspaper asking philosophers and thinkers to respond to this very question.

Keeping this in mind, for your first response you will create your own, contemporary version of “What is Enlightenment?” considering our contemporary situation, as if you were tasked with defining the idea today. You do not have to have the same title as Kant did so try to be creative and make a new one!

As mentioned in the syllabus, the response will be turned in Tuesday morning in class (Hard copy), 250 words, double spaced, times new roman. Make sure you title your paper and provide a thoughtful answer.

Also! Here is a video to help with your reading of Tartuffe. The performance is a bit cheesy but it stays very close to the text and can give you a general idea of how the play was to be performed and what is going on.

For next Tuesday you will need to read the first half of Molière’s Tartuffe.
