Kant, Dr, B. I. (2013). Answer the Question: What is Enlightenment?. Retrieved from

Essay translated from German to English by Daniel Fidel Ferrer in August 2013. Original publication of Immanuel Kant's essay in German: By Immanuel Kant. "Beantwortung der Frage: Was ist Aufklarung?" in Berlinische Monatsschrift Book. 4, 12. December, 1784), pages 481-494.

What is Enlightenment? Kant answered in 1784 with this short essay.

Kant wrote in 1784 in the first part of his essay: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one understanding without guidance from another. Self-incurred is this tutelage when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but rather of resolve and courage to use it without direction from another. Sapere Aude! [Latin translated: Dare to know, from Horace]. Have courage to use your own mind! Thus is the motto of Enlightenment."
