In the late seventeenth century, however, it confronted fundamental challenges that influenced its transition to the more public, inclusive and vernacular discourse of the Enlightenment. Transforming the Republic of Letters is a cultural and intellectual history that chronicles this transition to "modernity" from the perspective of the internationally renowned scholar Pierre-Daniel Huet (1630-1721)."--BOOK JACKET."
