Age of Enlightenment
From Mises Wiki, the global repository of classical-liberal thought
Age of Enlightenment or Age of Reason refers to the eighteenth century, particularly in England and France, when reason rather than emotion, intuition or superstition were presumed to have prevailed. The period stretched roughly from John Locke (1632-1704) and Isaac Newton (1642-1727) to Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). During this period there was a great advance in all branches of human knowledge.
