    Casting Light Upon The Great Endarkenment.David Lumsden & Joseph Ulatowski - forthcoming - Metaphilosophy.
    While the Enlightenment promoted thinking for oneself independent of religious authority, the ‘Endarkenment’ (Millgram 2015) concerns deference to a new authority: the specialist, a hyperspecializer.
