Political Writings [from the Historical and Critical Dictionary]Natural Law Theories in the Early Enlightenment [Book Review]

The Leibniz Review 10:139-148 (2000)

Patrick Thomas Riley
Harvard University
Given Leibniz’ admiration for Bayle’s Dictionnaire historique et critique, which he called “le plus beau des dictionnaires” in the Nouveaux essais, and given that Bayle’s skeptical worries provided the occasion for the writing of the Theodicée, it is appropriate to consider in the The Leibniz Review the first English-language version of those articles from Bayle’s Dictionnaire which are most important for political and moral philosophy. For it is a superb version, edited by the most knowledgeable Bayle-scholar in the Anglophone world; it will justly shape early-Englightenment studies in coming decades.
