"Lodewijk Meyer (1629-1681) achieved fame in his own time as the author of the first dictionary of the Dutch language, the director of the Amsterdam Theatre, and one of the co-founders of the literary society, Nil Volentibus arduum. A personal friend of Baruch Spinoza, Meyer was the editor of the latter's Principles of Cartesian Philosophy (for which he also provided an extensive introduction) and one of those who arranged for the publication of the philosopher's works following his death in 1677." "The first edition of Philosophy as the Interpreter of Holy Scripture was published anonymously in Amsterdam in 1666, and created an immediate furor and series of condemnations by the ecclesiastical courts. The work was also reprinted twice as an appendix to Spinoza's Theologico- Political Treatise, and in those editions was attributed to Spinoza. An anonymous Dutch edition appeared in 1667, and new Latin editions in 1673 and 1674. Evidence for the staying power of the work and the controversies which surrounded it is found in the fact that it underwent a fourth edition long after Meyer's death in 1776." "The present translation is the first into English, and utilises the Latin editions of 1666 and 1673. Notes and variant readings to the Dutch edition of 1667 are also provided by Francis Pastijn (Marquette University)."--BOOK JACKET.Meyer, Lodewijk is the author of 'Philosophy As The Interpreter Of Holy Scripture (1666) ', published 2005 under ISBN 9780874626667 and ISBN 0874626668.
