WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT?
Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed Immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This Immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance. Dare to know! – Sapere aude.
“Have the courage to use your own understanding,” is therefore the motto of the enlightenment.
