The 18th century, more than many, may remind us of our own time. That period was the culmination of what had become known as the “Republic of Letters,” a shared domain of imagination that lasted from 1500 to 1800.

I love the phrase “republic of letters” and I’m surprised I have not head of it before. In the next iteration of my article: Archetypes of Cyberspace I’ll do some more research and add it in.
