xx Update in Jonathan Bennett's Early Modern Texts
« Thread started on: Feb 8th, 2010, 12:22pm »

"1. Descartes's correspondence with Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia.

2. Mill's powerful and still relevant "The Subjection of Women". (What he says in chapter 3 about the political interests and skills of some princesses is well illustrated in the Descartes-Elisabeth exchange.)

3. Julien Offray de La Mettrie's strange, interesting "Man---Machine".

Those three items constitute a relatively small addition to the site. That is because I have given priority to reformatiing all the texts (and bits of texts) with the aid of Latex. This arduous task is now almost complete; the only text outstanding is Kant's Dialectic, which has presented a special problem that isn't yet solved.

The next few additions to the site will probably include one or two things by Boyle, Mary Wollstencraft's Vindication of the Rights of Women, and Locke's Letter on Toleration.

The Rights page has been altered, removing constraints on what kinds of websites this site's texts may be placed on.

Since August 2009 the average number of visits per week - including the slack period around Christmas - has been over 7,600.
