A short video based on Immanuel Kant’s “What is enlightenment?”

“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-incurred immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use more…one’s own understanding without the guidance of another. This immaturity is self-incurred if its cause is not lack of understanding, but lack of resolution and courage to use it without the guidance of another. The motto of enlightenment is therefore: Sapere aude! Have courage to use your own understanding!”
— Immanuel Kant, “What is Enlightenment”
