The purpose of the philosoph was to create a better world. This was a transnational phenomenon and the republic of letters was the idea that all thinkers were bound together by a dedication to reason. Immanual Kant summed up this idea in a Latin phrase he coined "sapare aude", meaning "dare to know." The philosophs didn't necessarily oppose religion, but rather religious intolerance. They believed that the human condition could be benefited by thinking. The philosophs created an Encyclopedia attempting to collect all of the knowledge in one place. It was written from 1751-1772. They believed that this encyclopedia would help common man to do/ know things that he wouldn't have been capable of knowing before. They wanted freedom of the press and freedom of religion, because they believed this was the natural law. They were often members of the upper middle class.

Plantation Economies
Plantations came about as the Europeans discovered the ability to steal humans and force them into slavery, since they couldn't depend on the gold that they originally were expecting to suffice for them. They used mass labor to create large amounts of goods cheaply, and as a result, the plantation owners became very rich. The plantations however displaced the small farmers in the new world, because they could make goods for far less. Many slaves died on these plantations, most of whom worked on the sugar plantations, because the work was particularly treacherous. Many plantation owners left their plantations to agents and kept the great wealth, moved back to Europe, and created a new class.
