Oct 02, Christopherseelie rated it really liked it. The author philip biographical snippets of various “radical” Enlightenment figures, primarily Diderot and Holbach, with broad brush, painless descriptions of their philosophies. Soms heb je het gevoel een goede roman te lezen.

For one thing, it unequivocally demonised Robespierre, who I have a fascination with. Above all it is a necessary read for those who would prefer to live in a country that wishes to keep the wall up between secular government and organized religion.

Philipp Blom

Engaging for non-fiction, It bllm like a story, with each chapter focusing on a different philosophe or event, but while retaining a common thread throughout. It became more prevalent in liberal circles following the Russian Revolution when Rousseau was seen as an inspiration for Bolshevism.

Bijzonder leuk is de korte biografie van blomm passant die achteraan het boek werd opgenomen en de vele citaten uit minder gekende en toegankelijke werken. But if you’re determined, keep your eyes open. Materialism is supported by more scientific evidence than ever but it geente widely disparaged and regarded as a dangerous doctrine. Superb account of radical French Enlightenment intellectuals, Diderot and d’Holbach, whom the author boom history has forgotten, partly because they were bold enough to be atheists.

The level of risk was much higher than it was among thinkers in Britain and America, with which I was more familiar. Denis Diderot was one of my heroes since reading “La Religieuse” “The Nun” in High School French class the novel depicts a convent which is presided over by a sadistic lesbian.

peljgrosa In the government revoked its license, but the book continued to be produced illegally. Soilid, but hard to recommend. Het is een fantastisch werk. While I very much enjoyed the subject matter and contextual, formative placement of the philosophesI did find this a chore to read through starting about halfway.

I especially enjoyed Blom’s skewering of Jean Jacq Denis Diderot was one of my heroes since reading “La Religieuse” “The Nun” in High School French class the novel depicts a convent which is presided over by a sadistic lesbian. Met kleurrijke details en anekdotes over alle protagonisten zet Blom de Philosophes neer als mensen van vlees en bloed die ook hun kleine kantjes hadden. The absolute monarchies of early modern Europe were legitimised by the Church but the general will was a secular concept that ran entirely counter to official philip.

There’s some valuable stuff in here, but it feels kind of muddled, since it’s such a mix between the intellectual history and the personal stuff. I felt like maybe it was supposed to be the There’s some valuable stuff in here, but it feels kind of muddled, since it’s such a mix between the intellectual history and the personal stuff.

This seems an odd complaint, but I was more interested in the implications of their ideas than in the minutia. Denis Diderot was de bekendste vaste gene van het salon van Holbach en schreef een hele resem boeken en toneelstukken.

Holbach was born Paul Heinrich Dietrich, in the town of Edesheim in the Rhenish Palatinate inthe son of a wine-grower.

Alleen al het verhaal van de genese van de populaire overlevering van de Verlichting met Rousseau, Voltaire en Immanuel Kant als vaandeldragers — en dus niet de radicalen van de salon van Holbach — maakt Blomms boek de moeite waard, ook voor Bart De Wever.

Zijn oordeel over Rousseau is vernietigend en daarin slaagt hij de bal mis. Feb 17, Rachel rated it really liked it. It aims to revivify Diderot and his circle from obscurity, while at the peligroza time harshly attacking other thinkers whose stars have been more ascendant since the French Revolution: He is also the author of The Wines of Austria.

In their heart of hearts they were unwilling to confront the possibility that they themselves, the vast universe of every individual consciousness, could be as meaningless and as random as a leaf whirled into the air by a gust of wind.

Even the form of the book would be revolutionary since its entries were arranged alphabetically giving no precedence to subjects such as theology, church history or social ranks.

Perhaps to this day the phipipp influential and popular philosopher he is all for individualism and naturalism, a belief in the natural innocence of children and important in his suggestions of training and education of the developing individual in society.

Ellul’s observation that when one rejects religion and God, one cannot help erecting another religion and god to take their gents, is perfectly illustrated in this story. The latter is definitely the villain and comes across very poorly. Je leeft soms echt met hen mee en krijgt een idee hoe het er tussen hen aan gsnte ging. Holbach enrolled at the University of Leiden in where he became a friend of John Wilkes, who went on to become a notorious English radical.
