Early Modern Texts

On this site you will find versions of some classics of early modern philosophy, and a few from the 19th century, prepared with a view to making them easier to read while leaving intact the main arguments, doctrines, and lines of thought.

We apologise for the recent downtime to the site. It happened that the appointed time to transfer ownership of the domain name from Jonathan to Peter and Amyas coincided with the premature birth of Amyas’s first child. As a result, things did not go quite as smoothly as we had hoped. Mother and daughter are both well, and the site should now be enjoying uninterrupted service once again.

The better to focus on preparing more texts, Jonathan Bennett has handed over the ownership and maintenance of this site to Peter Millican and Amyas Merivale, of Hertford College, Oxford. Returning visitors will notice that we have given the site a fresh lick of paint, but the core content is unchanged. In particular, we will continue to host Jonathan Bennett’s articles here, and — of course — all of his wonderful translations of early modern texts.

Any questions or comments about this site should now be directed to Peter Millican (see the Contact page). Anyone wishing to thank Jonathan for his work on these texts should also email Peter, who will pass these emails on.
