    This is the first comprehensive study of the early modern logic of ideas. It is also a profound contribution to our understanding of the interaction between Aristotelianism and new philosophy and between rationalism and empiricism.

    Determinism and Causal Feedback Loops in Montesquieu's Explanations for the Military Rise and Fall of Rome.Paul Schuurman - 2013 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 21 (3):507-528.
    Montesquieu's Considérations sur les causes de la grandeur des Romains et de leur décadence (1733/1734) is a methodological exercise in causal explanation on the meso-level applied to the subject of the military rise and fall of Rome. Rome is described as a system with contingent initial conditions that have a strong path-determining effect. Contingent and plastic initial configurations become highly determining in their subsequent operation, thanks to self-reinforcing feedback loops. Montesquieu's method seems influenced by the ruthless commitment to efficient causality (...)

    Fénelon on Luxury, War and Trade in the Telemachus.Paul Schuurman - 2012 - History of European Ideas 38 (2):179-199.
    Summary In his novel The Adventures of Telemachus, François de la Mothe-Fénelon (1651–1715) presents a utopian society, Boetica, in which the role of luxury, war and trade is extremely limited. In unreformed Salentum, on the other hand, Fénelon shows the opposite image, one in which the three elements reinforce each other in a fatal feedback-loop. I analyse the relationship between luxury, war and trade in the Telemachus and I sketch the background to Fénelon's views, with special attention to the military (...)

    Studies on Locke: Sources, Contemporaries, and Legacy: In Honour of G.A.J. Rogers.Sarah Hutton & Paul Schuurman (eds.) - 2008 - Springer.
    John Cottingham In the anglophone philosophical world, there has, for some time, been a curious relationship between the history of philosophy and contemporary philosophical - quiry. Many philosophers working today virtually ignore the history of their s- ject, apparently regarding it as an antiquarian pursuit with little relevance to their “cutting-edge” research. Conversely, there are historians of philosophy who seldom if ever concern themselves with the intricate technical debates that ll the journals devoted to modern analytic philosophy. Both sides are (...)

    Continuity and change in the empiricism of John Locke and Gerardus de Vries (1648–1705).Paul Schuurman - 2007 - History of European Ideas 33 (3):292-304.
    Locke has often been hailed as the father of an empiricism that provided a philosophical basis to natural science in the Age of Enlightenment. In this article his empiricism is compared with that of the little known Dutch Aristotelian professor Gerardus de Vries. There are striking parallels between Locke's brand of mechanist empiricism and the pragmatic and flexible Aristotelianism of De Vries. These parallels put strictures on both the archaic character of the Aristotelianism embraced by De Vries and on the (...)

    Locke's way of ideas as context for his theory of education in Of the Conduct of the Understanding.Paul Schuurman - 2001 - History of European Ideas 27 (1):45-59.
    The central theme of John Locke's Of the Conduct of the Understanding is human error. The Conduct was conceived as an additional chapter to An Essay concerning Understanding, but it was never finished and published posthumously in 1706 as a separate work. Modern authors have regarded the Conduct as an educational treatise. Indeed, the analysis in this work of the nature and causes of error and the ways to prevent and remedy error gives rise to numerous educational reflections. However, the (...)

    Models of war 1770–1830: the birth of wargames and the trade-off between realism and simplicity.Paul Schuurman - 2017 - History of European Ideas 43 (5):442-455.
    The first sophisticated wargames were developed between 1770 and 1830 and are models of military conflict. Designers of these early games experimented fruitfully with different concepts that were formulated in interaction with the external dynamics of the military systems that they tried to represent and the internal dynamics of the design process itself. The designers of early wargames were confronted with a problem that affects all models: the trade-off between realism and simplicity, which in the case of wargames amounts to (...)

    The interpretation of Descartes’ physics as given in the Principia Philosophiae should take into account the fundamental differences between its two levels. First, in Principia Part II there is the level formed by his general physical principles, i.e. his three Laws of Nature. Second, in Principia Part III and Part IV there is the level of Descartes’ explanations for the different phenomena. While pretending to give physical principles that are certain and not based on empirical evidence, he admits that his (...)

    SummaryIn the present article it is argued that Pieter de la Court's Political Maxims of the State of Holland presented a remarkably consistent grand strategy for Holland in relation to its Dutch allies and the European powers. I present an outline of this strategy, which was built around the accomplishment and defence of commercial goals; I sketch a historical context that takes into account the general historical shift from tribute-taking agrarian societies towards commercial wealth-generating polities, and also the violent contemporary (...)
