My teen enjoys reading about the people behind the historical events more so than the events themselves. He enjoyed this one while studying the French Revolution.

Little about the Enlightenment, only a few excerpts from some authors.

It's a very hard book to read. The language used is so complicated. Very challenging.
Mardin
This anthology contains Berlin's overview, and his introduction to a whole group of Enlightentment thinkers. More than anyone else Berlin brought these thinkers into the realm of British and American historical and philosophical discourse. While admiring them Berlin does not buy the utopian vision of any one, and his critical insights are balanced and wise.

Berlin became a favorite philosophy expert of the New York Review of Books so I previously read many of his books. The long section of this summary of a century of philosophy explains the key ideas from an early work of David Hume and which paragraph woke Kant from his dogmatic slumber. If thinking is like a bobsled in which people learn to shift their weight according to the direction of the turn the bobsled is in, Berlin is an ideal commentator to make words on the page seem significant. Several hundred years of powerful technology separate us from the original readers of these philosophies. People can try to make machines keep track of important transactions, but most readers will still have too much in common with brains that are asleep.
