On 10 november 2010, Jeanne Holierhoek, Translator-in-Residence at NIAS, will present the first two volumes of eight in the series Descartes in Nederland [Descartes in the Netherlands] at Maison Descartes in Amsterdam.
The two volumes are:
Part 1: Regels om richting te geven aan het verstand & ander vroeg werk [Rules to guide the mind & other early works]
Part 2: De wereld – de mens [The world – Man]
Together with Rudolf Rasch and Corinna Vermeulen, Holierhoek is working on the translation of almost the complete philosophical and scientific works of Descartes, and part of the correspondence, into Dutch. A lot of the work has never been translated before.
The first edition of the first volume will be handed over to Jean-François Blarel, the French Ambassador in the Netherlands.
