"Enlightenment" is one's departure from self-imposed (intellectual,
philosophical and spiritual) immaturity. This immaturity can be defined as
the inablity to use one’s own intellect without the direction of another. It
is self-imposed if its cause is not the lack of intelligence or education,
but lack of determination and courage to think without the direction of
another. "Sapere aude! Have the courage to use your own intellect!" is
therefore the motto of the Enlightenment. - Kant
