"Pierre Bayle was one of the most important sceptical thinkers of the seventeenth century. His work was a major influence on the development of the ideas of Voltaire, Hume, Montesquieu and Rousseau. Sally L. Jenkinson's new edition presents the reader with a coherent path through Bayle's monumental work. This is the first volume in English to select political writings from Bayle's work and to present its author as a specifically political thinker. Sally L. Jenkinson's translation will be welcomed by scholars and students of the history of ideas, political theory, cultural history and French studies."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Various thoughts on the occasion of a comet by Pierre Bayle( )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The appearance of this comet caused so many panicked inquiries to be made of Pierre Bayle, one of the Enlightenment's greatest thinkers, that he decided to formally respond to them, hence the present work, which first appeared in 1682. The book's principle task was to undermine the influence of "superstition" in political life, and it was here that Bayle made the notorious suggestion, unique in the history of political thought until then, that a decent society of atheists is possible in principle. There is no other English translation of this book in print - the only other version was printed in 1708. This translation is based on a recently revised critical edition of the complete French text and includes a substantial interpretive essay that both elucidates the arguments of the work and indicates the importance of Bayle in the history of the modern Enlightenment."--Jacket
A philosophical commentary on these words of the Gospel, Luke 14.23 : "Compel them to come in, that My house may be full" by Pierre Bayle( )

16 editions published between 1708 and 2008 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topics of church and state, religious toleration, the legal enforcement of religious practices, and religiously motivated violence on the part of individuals, have once again become burning issues. Pierre Bayle's Philosophical Commentary was a major attempt to deal with very similar problems three centuries ago. His argument is that if the orthodox have the right and duty to persecute, then every sect will persecute since every sect considers itself orthodox. The result will be mutual slaughter, something God cannot have intended." "Bayle has often been seen as a skeptic who blazed a philosophical path that Denis Diderot, David Hume, and other Enlightenment thinkers would follow. But his was a philosophical skepticism that did not exclude the possibility of religious faith, and Bayle himself was a Calvinist Christian." "Bayle's book was translated into English in 1708. The Liberty Fund edition reprints that translation, carefully checked against the French and corrected, with an introduction and annotations designed to make Bayle's arguments accessible to the twenty-first-century reader."--Jacket
Pensées diverses sur la comète by Pierre Bayle( Book )

109 editions published between 1683 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un ouvrage d'une grande importance historique dans le débat sur la croyance, la superstitition et plus généralement sur les rapports entre raison et religion. Prenant prétexte du passage d'une comète et du cortège de présages suscités, Bayle donne voix pour une des première fois à une approche sceptique et pour ainsi dire agnostique de la religion et de la foi. Brève mais substantielle introduction, p. 7-30. Le texte retenu est celui de l'édition de 1727. Les notes de bas de page sont de Bayle, celles de l'éditeur sont réunies en fin de volume. Comprend un glossaire et un dictionnaire biographique. Pas d'index. [SDM]

Hauptbeschreibung: Das 1697 in erster Auflage erschienene ""Dictionnaire historique et critique"" von Pierre Bayle ist als die ""Bibel der Aufklärung"" bezeichnet worden. Seine immense Bedeutung für das ausgehende 17. und das darauffolgende ""Jahrhundert der Aufklärung"" ist immer wieder auch von prominenter Seite bezeugt worden. Dieses für die europäische Aufklärung und Ideengeschichte zentrale Werk, das 1740 bereits in 8.Auflage in vier voluminösen Foliobänden vorlag, führte in der deutschen Aufklärungsforschung ein Schattendasein. Das lag in erster Linie daran, daß bislang keine erschwingli
