Freedom, equality and fratenity in the Early Dutch Enlightenment (1662-1697) (3E010807)

Research into the roots of the Enlightenment, more specifically by examining some central notions such as 'freedom', 'equality' and 'fraternity', and the way in which these were applied in political theory. Themes that will be examined in this context are i.a. slavery, the idea of the natural state and the noble savage, the image of the atheist martyr, etc.
