This paper deals with the crucial relationship between the Enlightenment and its enemies, namely obscurity, prejudice and superstition, and aims to outline the anything but simplistic nature of this relationship. On the one hand, the Enlightenment, particularly in its German version, fights against all these phenomena with a view to destroying them; on the other hand, however, it cannot but acknowledge their power, which requires a change of strategy on its part. As a result, Enlightenment is not as naive and sterile as some twentieth-century philosophers have assumed, but proves self-critical and fully aware of its own limits.
