Discuss how and to what extent Enlightenment ideas influenced the political, social, and cultural policies of the French Revolutionary period (1789-1815). Make sure you have a thesis (a general argument) and provide examples and details to support your answer. Do not use an Encyclopedia, including Wikipedia, as an academic source. Encyclopedias are reference works and not research! To find academic sources, use the FIU library search (Links to an external site.) or Google Scholar (Links to an external site.) (not just Google).
