A question-mark yet again. As Kant wrote in 1784, his was not an enlightened age, but only an age in pursuit of enlightenment. That too remains essentially true. Enlightenment is always uncompleted business,its achievements at risk; it can never be concluded, if only because new challenges will always arise. But so too will new generations to face them, with new impulses to be clear, open-minded and committed to the cause of humanity.
