Editorial Reviews

Review

`[We] have here a highly significant book that, in its detail, defies easy review and demands careful scrutiny by all interested in the development of Protestant thought in the century after the Reformation.'' Calvin Theological Journal

`'The author combines the approaches and methods of political history, church history, the history of ideas, and the history of science, and he succeeds admirably. The book is a strong argument for intellectual history that crosses the boundaries between present-day disciplines, and combines different methodologies and explanatory approaches.'' Bulletin of the German Historical Institute

`'Both traditional intellectual historians with their focus on exposition, analysis and comparison as well as new cultural historians with their demand for bridges from the world of thought to other areas will find themselves wondering why such a fascinating topic hasn't already been more widely examined. . . . This recreation of the inner and public worlds of an influential teacher who exemplifies the tensions of his age should spur further interest in this area from specialists and non-specialists alike.'' H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences OnLine

`'Howard Hotson's outstanding intellectual biography of Johann Heinrich Alsted (1588-1638) expands interest in a neglected area of intellectual history ... Both traditional intellectual historians with their focus on exposition, analysis and comparison as well as new cultural historians with their demand for bridges from the world of thought to other areas will find themselves wondering why such a fascinating topic hasn't already been more widely examined ... This recreation of the inner and public worlds of an influential teacher who exemplifies the tensions of his age should spur further interest in this area from specialists and non-specialists alike.'' Susan R. Boettcher, H-Net Review

About the Author

Dr Hotson works in the field of early modern European intellectual history, with particular attention to central Europe and the international Reformed world c.1550-1660. Thematically, he has written on the histories of science, philosophy, religion, education, and political theory and their
relationship to broader social, political, and confessional developments. At the heart of his interests are the gradually expanding reform movements of the post-Reformation period culminating in the pansophism of Comenius, the universal reform programme of Samuel Hartlib, and the audacious
philosophical projects of Leibnitz. Oxford University Press published his book on Alsted in 2000: Johann Heinrich Alsted 1588-1638: Between Renaissance, Reformation and Universal Reform: it received a wide range of excellent reviews.
