Inhaltsangabe: We still know little of childhood in early modern European thought. By reconstructing philosophies of childhood in the works of rationalists not known to have reflected upon children, Reason's Children expands our understanding of philosophical reflection on childhood in early modern Europe. Central aspects of early modern philosophical systems?Descartes's prejudice and method, Leibniz's divine justice,Wolff 's rationality, Baumgarten's aesthetic cognition?are reexamined in light of the peripheral status of childhood in their works. Furthermore, Krupp carefully examines the various children of Locke's Essay, most of whom have been neglected in histories of childhood. Beyond illustrating the blank slate thesis, Locke's children play other significant roles as well: as not-yet persons, as deficient speakers, and as changelings. The absence of Locke's actual statements concerning children from the intellectual history of childhood is a wrong that here finds some redress. This erudite and valuable work of scholarship examines concepts of childhood in European thought between 1630-1750 and aims to bring the topic of childhood to the attention of historians of philosophy while also contributing, historically and philosophically, to the newly burgeoning field of Childhood Studies.

Über den Autor: Anthony Krupp is an independent scholar in Miami, FL. His seminar on the history and philosophy of childhood was among the winners of the 2006 Innovative Course Design Competition of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies and is available on-line.
