9781855069664: Dictionary of Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Dutch Philosophers

In this Dictionary, more than four hundred biographical entries encompass all the Dutch thinkers who exercised a major influence on the intellectual life of the Golden Age, as well as those who developed their ideas and beliefs through interaction with other scholars. Additional entries describe foreign philosophers who lived in the country temporarily and whose work was influenced by their stay. These include John Locke, René Descartes and Pierre Bayle.

About the Author:

Prof Wiep van Bunge is Dean of the Faculteit der Wijsbegeerte at Rotterdam. He was previously Head of the Philosophy Department and has published extensively on Spinoza and Dutch Philosophy.
Paul Schuurman is assistant professor at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and has published on René Descartes and John Locke. His latest book, co-edited with Sarah Hutton, is Studies on Locke: Sources, Contemporaries, and Legacy (Berlin: Kluwer/Springer, 2008).

Review:

"The editors define philosophy in the widest possible terms, including scientists and other intellectuals, even influential foreigners (e.g., Descartes, Carl von Linné (Linne) [Linnaeus]). The connecting threads include attacks on and defenses of Cartesian philosophy. The set begins with an introduction, acknowledgements, "How to Use the Dictionary," a list of contributors, and another of illustrations. The entries, alphabetically arranged, include not just persons but institutions of learning and a few important publications. "How to Use the Dictionary" should be read carefully for its explanation of the choices made in establishing forms of names. The illustration section appears at the end of volume 1, the index at the end of volume 2. The individual entries are lucid, and each has a bibliography. The latter include both primary sources and further readings. No effort is made to list English translations, making the dictionary less useful for beginners than for scholars well versed in Dutch thought of the Golden Age. The most famous of the figures covered can be found elsewhere, but second-rank intellectuals will be harder to find outside this set. Summing Up: Recommended. Research libraries." -CHOICE (T. M. Izbicki, Johns Hopkins University)

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. American ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Following on from Thoemmes Press s Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century British Philosophers (1999), Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers (2000) and Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century British Philosophers (2002), this work provides a further key research source in the history of philosophy. The Dictionary of Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Dutch Philosophers covers the 200-year period of the Dutch Republic, when its people experienced a Golden Age in the arts, in sea trade and in philosophy that left a lasting impression on European culture. The Dutch witnessed nothing less than a philosophical revolution, driven to a large extent by the migres from France, Finland, Portugal, Britain, Switzerland, Germany and elsewhere, who provided the Golden Age with its thinkers. As a result of the unique position held by the Netherlands during the period, this dictionary constitutes an anthology of European thought at large. Included are all foreign thinkers (such as Rene Descartes and Pierre Bayle) who exercised a major influence on the philosophical life of the Dutch Republic and who developed their ideas through interaction with other philosophers residing there. Among these resident philosophers, as well as all the well-known figures such as Benedict Spinoza, many lesser-known ones are included. Each entry includes a bibliography listing the subject s major and minor philosophical writings and giving guidance to further reading. A system of cross-references makes it easy for the reader to pursue connections and influences. In addition, the dictionary features entries on Dutch universities, city academies, publishing houses and journals. This work should be of interest to all students and scholars of the period.
