Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique was a bestseller throughout Europe for two centuries. Sally L. Jenkinson's masterly new edition presents the reader with a coherent path through Bayle's vast work, uncovering Bayle's progressive views on toleration and elitism. This anthology is the first in English to present Bayle as a specifically political thinker. Sally L. Jenkinson's authoritative translation, careful selection of texts, and lucid introduction will be welcomed by scholars and students of the history of ideas, political theory, cultural history and French studies.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Spinoza did not reach the New World, but Bayle's Dictionary of terms, was widely accesible; and through it, Dutch thought had a larger influence in the 17-18 centuary America that is recognized.
