Los angeles tradición cultural humanista nunca ha tenido buena acogida entre nosotros. Tampoco gozó del desire de los angeles clase política, ni del interés o comprensión de los historiadores. Para unos eran heterodoxos; para otros, reaccionarios. El autor estudia los angeles evolución de l. a. corriente humanista en el siglo XVIII, las diferencias con l. a. pedagogía jesuítica y l. a. actitud de los gobernantes, para finalizar con el análisis de su postura ante l. a. Revolución Francesa. Hubo humanistas temerosos, afrancesados, pero también liberales y revolucionarios. Como en toda los angeles sociedad. De este análisis surge una pregunta, que subyace en el concepto de Ilustración: ¿tiene ésta un carácter estrictamente racionalista-científico o, sin negar éste, es menester confesar los angeles influencia del humanismo?
