"Be Sober and moderate" bargains with the theological and clinical critique of enthusiasm within the 17th and early eighteenth centuries, and with the connection among enthusiasm and the recent usual philosophy in that interval. Enthusiasm at the moment was once a label ascribed to varied contributors and teams who claimed to have direct divine suggestion prophets, millenarists, alchemists, but additionally experimental philosophers, or even philosophers like Descartes. The e-book makes an attempt to mix the views of highbrow background, Church historical past, historical past of drugs, and historical past of technology, in analysing many of the reactions to enthusiasm. The important thesis of the ebook is that the response to enthusiasm, particularly within the Protestant international, could provide one very important key to the origins of the Enlightenment, and to the techniques of secularization of ecu consciousness."
