Voices of Enlightenment

Apparently today is International Blasphemy Day, but I can't really think of anything I want to be blasphemous about. (I've already criticised Richard Dawkins, which is the equivalent of blasphemy in Atheist circles.)

There is a series of programmes in the "Essay" slot, late at night on BBC Radio 3 that is celebrating "Voltaire and Voices of the Enlightenment". The first programme notes that it is the 250th anniversary of the publication of Voltaire's philosophical satire Candide. This is a series well-worth listening to for Humanists, and indeed anyone.
