As a working class student lucky or (unlucky) enough to take classes at the undergraduate level, prepare for a rude awakening. God forbid you are inspired by struggles to define a universal human nature. Heaven help you if you believe in human progress. Prepare to be called a Western imperialist if you hope that collective human reason can solve most social problems through empirical science. All these hopes are part of the European Enlightenment that has been under attack at western universities for the last 50 years. But most of these attacks by postmodernists only apply to the Moderate Enlightenment, not to the Radical Enlightenment.
