Seminar presentation on John Bender's new book, "Ends of Enlightenment." In his book, Professor Bender explores three realms of eighteenth-century European innovation that remain active in the twenty-first century: the realist novel, philosophical thought, and the physical sciences, especially human anatomy.
Commentary will be provided by William B. Warner, Professor of English, University of California at Santa Barbara.
Books will be available for sale at this event by the Stanford Bookstore.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Comparative Literature, Department of English and the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages.
