The spiritual life of almost all of Europe since the middle of the 18th century has been greatly influenced - after scholasticism, humanism and the Reformation - by a new ideological wave - the Enlightenment, which created cracks in the integrity of feudalism and became the worldview of an advanced, progressive, radical and revolutionary society. Enlightenment scholars had a lion's share in the ideological preparations for the Great French Revolution ( MFF ).
