Man’s place in God’s universe

The hypothesis that the origin of clothing lies in adornment derives from the ideas of Enlightenment and evolutionary theory of change. The intellectual revolution that took place in the eighteenth century was called the Enlightenment, or Age of Reason, because it rejected religion as the theoretical framework for explaining social and natural phenomena. Enlightenment scholars invoked the philosophy, literature, and art of ancient Greece and Rome to show that among educated men the spirit of rational inquiry prevailed. They laid claim to Newton, who had made the universe intelligible without the aid of revelation. They believed that to achieve equality and economic well-being, scholars need to understand man’s place in God’s universe – Ruth P. Rubinstein “Color, Circumcision, Tattoos, and Scars” published in “The Psychology of Fashion” by Michael R. Solomon

About TheStyleFibula

I am a lawyer, who all of a sudden has become a fashion and marketing student at Stockholm Business School. This is my free space, where I let my inner inspiration create a symbiosis with a genuine passion for art, scientific curiosity for fashion and profound interest in the anthropology of style.
