From Stevin to Spinoza
An Essay on Philosophy in the Seventeenth-Century Dutch Republic

Wiep van Bunge

Several schools of thought that are an essential part of early modern philosophy are presented in this work.

The author does not concentrate on the main authors or key-concepts that made up seventeenth-century philosophical discourse, but places the practice of philosophy in the Dutch Republic in a wide cultural context. This approach provides the opportunity to assess the emergence and early diffusion of Spinozism as a comprehensive philosophy.

Wiep van Bunge, Ph.D. in Philosophy, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, holds the Spinoza Chair at the Rotterdam Department of Philosophy. He is the director of the NWO-programme The Early Enlightenment in the Dutch Republic: Cartesianism, Spinozism, and Empiricism, 1650-1750.
