According to Strauss and Howe in Generations (book), the Enlightenment Generation, born during the latter quarter of the seventeenth century (1674-1700), was the last generation in the American colonies to have not known the United States of America as a political entity. Born during the chaotic times of the late seventeenth century, it grew up over-protected as the Glorious Revolution raged. Born to late-wave Cavaliers and early-wave Glorious, it was too young to achieve anything during the momentous events of the time; it was too old to participate fully in the religious ferment of the Great Awakening. By the time of the American Revolution and the Constitutional crisis its elderly survivors were too old to participate in the major events; nobody from this generation signed the Declaration of Independence, let alone participated in the Constitutional Convention. This generation lived in the shadows of more powerful members of the Glorious Generation in its childhood and in middle-age and later the more resolute and often fanatical Awakeners.

It was a civilized and polished generation, the one whose image is closely linked to colonial Williamsburg, Virginia at its most attractive time, and the last to consider itself more British than American. But it was the weakest generation in American politics even by the standards of the time or later, especially in contrast to its Glorious predecssors and Awakener followers.

Republican Generation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (609 words)
The Republican Generation is the name given to that generation of Americans born from 1742 to 1766 by William Strauss and Neil Howe in their book Generations.
The Republicans' typical grandparents were of the Enlightenment Generation.
Their children were of the Compromise Generation and Transcendental Generation and their typical grandchildren were of the Gilded Generation.
Reason: Soundbite (330 words)
The Enlightenment has also come under attack as something that has restricted the freedom of the civilization in which it occurred.
The Enlightenment identified problems of human life in need of reform -- the need for religious tolerance, abolition of torture, improving agriculture, ending privileges of birth, for instance -- without thinking about power.
Enlightenment thinkers were more interested in outcomes than in what limits were placed on even beneficent reformist power.
