His academic works include: I have quite mixed feelings about this book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I figured, though, hey! His genhe and passion for his subject can be contagious, particularly his delight at the possibility of an undocumented meeting s between Franklin and Diderot during Franklin’s time in Paris.

Peligros perhaps I need to find a salon dedicated to that discussion thread instead May 24, Ann Talbot rated it really liked it Recommends it for: This seems an odd complaint, but I was more interested in the implications of their ideas than in the minutia.

However, these The author interweaves biographical snippets of various “radical” Enlightenment figures, primarily Diderot and Holbach, with broad brush, painless descriptions of their philosophies.

He does a good job tying these debates and personal contentions to their historical impact, and overall the presentation is detailed and nuanced. For Blom this puts him squarely in the genet Enlightenment camp. View all 3 comments.

His novel, Luxor has not yet been translated into English. Oct 02, Christopherseelie rated it really liked it. Its publication in made the previously obscure writer widely known. De passage van Diderot aan het hof en bij Katharina de Grote is hilarisch.

He thinks that Voltaire and Rousseau are overrated and some of the other philosophers are not given enough credit, particularly Diderot–a reasonable point but his tone is highly biased. If anything, Blom goes out of his phulipp to be as clear and precise as possible both in relation to these ideas as well as their impact within the life and times of those reassessing them phhilipp presenting them anew.


His message was too disquieting, too anarchic, too dangerous to be released into the world at large. I wish books like this were around when I was a philo Superb account of radical French Enlightenment intellectuals, Diderot and d’Holbach, whom the author believes history has forgotten, partly because they were bold enough to be atheists. 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.

Dit boek is een historische studie over de totstandkoming van het kritisch rationalisme, maar laat zich evengoed lezen als een filosofische roman.

This is an interesting interpretation of the radical enlightenment within Pre-Revolutionary French society. It wasn’t clear to me whether I should view it as a.

This guy needs a fact checker. Surely it will get better! It is clear from the outset whom the author likes and dislikes, and whom he wants us to like. Agree or disagree, it will leave you with much to contemplate after the fact.

Right from the Introduction, it is clear that Blom has a hobby horse to ride and it nearly ruins the book. Mar 20, Bruce rated it it was amazing.

Wat mij meer stoort en dit maakt het werk soms bijzonder irritant is de wijze waarop Blom de groep rond Holbach, en vooral Diderot naar zijn hand tracht te zetten. The ideas expounded on by these protagonists are presented more or less historically in relation to the specific players involved; many of the ideas themselves Blom points out are not necessarily all that new at all, some extending at least as far back as to Epicurus and Lucretius and the author briefly presents these ideas within their own specific histories — so there is often some overlapping involved but certainly not to the extent of creating confusion.

Of particular interest for me genhe the clarification of different types gents Enlightenment that Blom outlines towards the end of his book: I wanted to read this book as my pelibrosa of the Enlightenment was sketchy it still is, to be fair.


I felt like maybe it was supposed to be the former but often amounted to the latter, which diminished the former’s effectiveness. It gives you a pelirgosa of what the French Enlightenment was really about and who the major players were, and makes a compelling case that those players were not who we are traditionally taught they were.

For the first two-thirds of the book, Blom lets his sizeable bias against Rousseau get in the way of an otherwise much more objective piece of intellectual history.

I actually enjoyed the concept of the salon, and found tantalizing parallels with Pfligrosa An Unlikely Prince and Machiavelli’s attendance at Florentine salons much earlier.

It is a book on personalities, not socio-political trends. In addition Holbach also published some radical works of his own, although these have apparently tended to lack popularity since.

In de meest bekeken uitzending van Reyers – Deze bespreking verscheen in in het Tijdschrift van de Vereniging Historici Lovanienses, Tijdingen uit Leuven – Enkele maanden geleden daagde filosoof Etienne Vermeersch politicus Bart De Wever uit om met hem in discussie te gaan over De Verlichting, de culturele en intellectuele stroming die in de zeventiende en achttiende eeuw in West-Europa vorsten en Kerk irriteerde door haar pleidooi tegen bijgeloof en voor redelijkheid en natuur wetenschap.

Philipp Blom

A duchess has no higher claim to happiness than the humblest peasant, and a society prligrosa which happiness is possible not just for the privileged few can be achieved only through solidarity and cooperation.

Zijn oordeel over Rousseau is vernietigend en daarin slaagt hij de bal mis. Je leeft soms echt met hen mee en krijgt een idee hoe het er tussen hen aan toe ging.
