Radical Enlightenment

Jonathan I. Israel

Oxford University Press

Frederik van Leenhof (1647–1712) is almost forgotten today, even in the Netherlands, and historians of the European Enlightenment rarely mention him. Yet there are excellent reasons for rescuing him from oblivion and paying attention to the massive disturbance he provoked. There can be no balanced account of the European Radical Enlightenment which does not take careful account of Leenhof and his ‘universal philosophical religion’.

Keywords:   Frederik van Leenhof, Radical Enlightenment, universal philosophical religion
