This volume emerged from a 2007 international conference held at New York University entitled, “Mediating Enlightenment Past and Present,” which sought answers to many questions about Enlightenment. However, the conference as a whole also yielded a collective answer to the big question: ‗what is Enlightenment?‘, namely that Enlightenment is an event in the history of mediation. This chapter attempts to recover that history, for our place in it is the reason that the time for this answer has finally come. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Enlightenment, mediation, history
