I'm just an interested outsider on the radical/mainstream enlightenment debate, but could you say a bit more about your note on Israel? It seems to me that the division you are pointing to fits in rather well with his distinction and, if I recall, he discusses racial theories somewhat in his book on the French revolution.

Justin, I have set out my criticisms of Israel in this (not very long and free) review:

In his terms, I think there are critics of racial hierarchy among moderate and radical enlightenment thinkers and, somewhat more surprisingly I think there are radical and moderate thinkers who embrace it. [But I have not done the hard work on this last claim.]

Ed Kazarian

Thanks for this, Eric.
