    The Correspondence of Henry Oldenburg and Book Reviews in the Philosophical Transactions, 1665–1677.Iordan Avramov - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):69-91.
    The book reviews of the early Philosophical Transactions have not been considered a dominant feature of the journal, and thus more research is needed to enrich our understanding of them. This paper begins this process by describing some of the basic features of the reviews, before moving on to address the issue of how they were composed. The specific focus here is on how Henry Oldenburg’s correspondence influenced the process in various ways. As it turns out, there are episodes when (...)

    Algernon Sidney and the Republican Tradition in Jeffersonian America.Pierangelo Castagneto - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):149-180.
    During the second term of Jefferson’s presidency, with Europe and the world ravaged by the Napoleonic Wars, it became extremely difficult for the young Republic to defend the principle of sovereignty from the threats of France and Britain. In response to attacks on American shipping, in 1807 Congress passed the Embargo Act, an economic measure designed to convince the two belligerents to respect U.S. neutrality by cutting off American shipping to all foreign nations. This controversial decision, firmly opposed by the (...)

    The Eternal Truths in Henry More and Ralph Cudworth.Bogdan-Antoniu Deznan - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):93-114.
    The thorny issue of the created status of eternal verities, a hypothesis initially promulgated by Descartes in his 1630 correspondence with Mersenne, generated widespread debates across confessional lines in 17th century philosoph­ical and theological circles. At stake was not only the necessary or contingent status of these truths, and thus God’s relationship with creation, but also the very nature of the Deity. This was certainly the case for the Cambridge Platonists Henry More and Ralph Cudworth. Both were early advocates of (...)

  6. Concepts of Experience in Royalist Recipe Collections.Benjamin I. Goldberg - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):37-68.
    This essay explores the idea of experience and its epistemological and practical role in maintaining the health of a household among early modern English Royalists. A number of prominent royalists during the mid-seventeenth century British Civil Wars expended quite some effort in the collection of medical recipes, including Queen Henrietta Maria herself, as well as William and Margaret Cavendish, and the Talbot sisters—Elizabeth Grey and Alethea Howard. This essay looks at these Royalists and four of their collections: three published, and (...)

    Locke and the Socinians on the Natural and Revealed Law.Diego Lucci - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):115-147.
    After the publication of The Reasonableness of Christianity, several critics depicted Locke as a follower of the anti-Trinitarian and anti-Calvinist theologian Faustus Socinus and his disciples, the Polish Brethren. The relation between Locke and Socinianism is still being debated. Locke’s religion indeed presents many similarities with the Socinians’ moralist soteriology, non-Trinitarian Christology, and mortalism. Nevertheless, Locke’s theological ideas diverge from Socinianism in various regards. Furthermore, there are significant differences between the Socinians’ and Locke’s views on the natural and revealed law. (...)

    Francis Bacon on the Certainty and Deceptiveness of Sense-Perception.Daniel Schwartz - 2022 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 11 (1):17-35.
    There is an important tension within Francis Bacon’s discussions of sense-perception. On the one hand, he sometimes seems to regard sense-percep­tion as a certain and unquestionable source of information about the world. On the other hand, he refers to errors, faults, desertions, and deceptions of the senses; indeed, he aims to offer a method which can remedy these errors. Thus, Bacon may appear conflicted about whether sense-perception provides reliable information about the world. But, I argue, this appearance of a conflict (...)
