The Dictionary of Seventeenth & Eighteenth-Century Dutch Philosophers
Available in Stock
In the 17th century, Holland and other northern provinces experienced a 'golden age' in trade and commerce, science and philosophy, particularly during the 40 years between 1637, when Descartes' Discours de la Methode was published in Leiden and the appearance of Spinoza's Opera posthuma in Amsterdam in 1677. The dictionary covers this exciting period in around 400 entries on Dutch philosophers, journals and universities, and includes foreign visitors and immigrants such as Descartes and Bayle. No jackets. Slip-cased.
