Abstract

In the work of Hans Blumenberg, the Enlightenment is seen as a fundamental reference for Modernity, yet endowed with a particular theoretical «style» of the philosophical inquiry. Blumenberg describes this «style» through an analysis of the metaphors of the light, the book, the shipwreck and the cavern: «absolute metaphors» of the truth, the risk of the existence and the role of the paideia. During the Enlightenment, these images acquire in fact a specific orientation towards the future.
