Reflective D2L Forum Post Assignment (MINIMUM 500 words, due before class Tuesday, Sept. 10) As a reflection of our examination on the definitions of the Enlightenment, this discussion post should address issues raised in Marquis de Condorcet's essay The Future Progress of the Human Mind . Condorcet states that “Our hopes for the future condition of the human race can be subsumed under three important heads [headings]: the abolition of inequality between nations, the progress of equality within each nation, and the true perfection of mankind” (reader, p. 27). This discussion post assignment has two parts to discuss: 1. Describe what each of these headings mean, and support your description by directly referencing Condorcet or any of the other authors we have read so far. 2. Appraise Condorcet’s hopes as he explains them in his essay. In your opinion, have his hopes been fulfilled or denied? Support your argument with examples from historical times, modern times, or a combination of the two.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
