The Enlightenment made the world become more free because of the ideas that were spread during the time period. The Scientific Revolution was a period of time where philosophers such as Galileo and Isaac Newton proved that the church was not always right, and they proved this with science.

In a sense, Asimov is playing off the idea that before people understood how lightning worked they chalked it up to Zeus. So, in Foundation, religion is something used by some to gain power over others. (Don 't agree? Go to the book and prove

Another outcome that changed because of the Enlightenment was now the Church didn’t have as much control over the government or the people because the people believed they had the right to express their beliefs freely.

Also in the French Revolution, examples of this were seen. What is the power that can make us move our ethical values and transform us into what we first tried to avoid?
