Question description

In 1784, Immanuel Kant wrote “If we are asked, ‘Do we live in an enlightened age?’ the answer is ‘No,’ but we do live in an age of enlightenment.” His point was that Europe had not yet reached the reliance on reason in its public and private affairs that Enlightenment thinkers desired, and that as a result many people were still slaves of habit and likely to obey blindly without consulting their reason. At the same time, he believed, more and more people were learning to think for themselves. How does Kant’s idea that people of his time were becoming enlightened apply to our time, and specifically to VSU students? Using your observations of various aspects of student life, discuss whether students are slaves to habit, already enlightened, or in the process of becoming enlightened. Give examples please.
