Early Modern Texts: nuevos textos añadidos

El sitio Early Modern Texts informa que nuevos textos estan disponibles:

1. Robert Boyle’s “The Excellence of the Mechanical Philosophy” and “The Origin of Forms and Qualities” (the “theoretical part”, not Part 2 which is all about particular experiments).

2. Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman”.

3. Benjamin Constant’s lecture “The Liberty of the Ancients Compared with that of the Moderns”.

4. Locke’s “Letter on Toleration”.

5. Isaac Newton’s astonishing letter to the Royal Society announcing, explaining, and defending his “new theory about light and colour”.

6. Chapters 5 and 8 through 11 of Spinoza’s “Theology and Politics”, completing the website’s version of that work. In this, as in my other Spinoza efforts, I have been generously helped by Edwin Curley.

Los textos se encuentran en versión inglesa. Esto es particularmente interesante para el lector castellano en el caso de obras publicadas originalmente en esta lengua. En todo caso, se trata de una herramienta útil para los interesados en este periodo de la filosofía moderna.
