The apparent hegemony and stability of these regimes hide a political alliances tangle, social contradictions and excessive government spending, resolved, superficially, the wealth from the colonies overseas. This whole picture would be shaken between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, time emerges and strengthens a philosophical-political movement that would, in a short time, put into question the European Old Regime and would be the basis of several revolutionary movements: the Enlightenment. The course will examine, through a historiographical look, Absolutism and the Enlightenment, rescuing the contradictions, the historical context, criticism and political aspects, economic, social and cultural of the Old Regime in Europe. Faced with the reality that surrounds us, where concepts defended and systematized by the Enlightenment took root in contemporary nation-states, understand the historical roots of its emergence and its criticism the previous autocratic regimes shows is of fundamental importance.
