Philosophers, on the other hand, are, for all their abstruseness, simplifiers. And what I want to offer in this essay is a wild simplification, a way of thinking about the meaning of the Enlightenment through the consideration of two images: a piece of wax and some bricks, a brick wall really. My thought is going to be this: each of these two images, wax and brick, embody and thereby provide or project an account of the meaning of enlightenment, hence each image picturing an utopian moment that can be thought of as constitutive of the very idea of enlightenment; but, and here is the rub, in fact these two images stand in radical opposition to one another.
