From the Enlightenment to Business Models. Episode 5A. Who moved the ways of the Enlightenment Part B. The German Philosophers Medley

After a long Saturday of work, find below the profiles of the main figures of the German Enlightenment.

I am truly exhausted. So I won´t write more than one paragraph. Please take a look at the slides. If you are keen enough to observe, you will find out which was the region that moved the German Enlightenment. It wasn´t the Habsburgs or the other dynasties/princedoms. It was the protectorate of the Hohenzollerns, the northeastern part that later expanded to the east, and it is called Prussia. All that area belonged to protestants, mainly to Lutherans. I will leave you with a question: Why do you think that the German Enlightenment was coming from philosophers that studied at the Universities of Halle, Leipzig, Berlin, and Koningsberg? In addition, there is a clue: the majority of these philosophes (radical or moderate) went to visit or stayed for several years in Amsterdam and The Hague too.

I wish the 5 teams: Malizia, 11th Hour Racing, Guyot, Biotherm, and Holcim-PRB a beautiful arrival to Capetown. In a few hours, they will anchor. Safe and sound. Bonne Nuit. Doucement.

All the best, and see you next Friday 17th. Thank you and blessings for reading to me.

We are done and now in Cape Town with the Ocean Race 2023. Leg 2 completed. Photo Source:
