New Perspectives in Global History

The era of the Enlightenment would not have been thinkable without its reflection on questions and problems arising out of globalization processes. In addition, the basic assumptions of 18th-Century thinking still constitute the paradigms for contemporary discussions. The Enlightenment – as an ongoing process of modernization – plays a crucial role for perspectives on Europe from the outside.

This volume presents different approaches to these questions from various disciplinary and regional backgrounds. Its main objective consists in furthering the dialogue between European and Latin American research, following Eric Hobsbawm's suggestion that Latin America might be the most productive laboratory for Enlightenment ideas today.
