Synopsis

The tradition of Enlightenment provides us with the best and most enduring basis on which to face up to the existential uncertainties of life today. However, in a society that is becoming increasingly diverse, Enlightenment will have to be looked at in a different light. Not as a set of values which are forever set in stone, nor as a legacy. Enlightenment must be viewed as a way in which we choose to live our lives; but also as an open project, in which everyone can participate and which we can all help shape.
