Dooyeweerd's Reformation and Scholasticism volume two, provides what is perhaps the clearest entrée into his entire biblically driven philosophical systematics. The first two chapters discuss in detail the biblical, historical, and systematic issues that actually gave rise to the development of this intrinsically reformational philosophy. The third chapter presents what is arguably the clearest presentation of Dooyeweerd's transcendental critique of philosophical thought.

Subsequent chapters go on in considerable detail to apply this latter critique to both the old Greek, and subsequent Thomist ideas of "substance" that have informed so much of the Western tradition of thought. The final chapters provide an extensive presentation of what Dooyeweerd means by the Modal and Individuality Structures of temporal reality. This work is a must read for those who want to understand the real Dooyeweerd.


Herman Dooyeweerd (1894-1977) was born in Amsterdam to Calvinistic parents whose convictions and way of life were profoundly influenced by Abraham Kuyper, the great Dutch statesman, educator and journalist, and one of the protestant leaders through which the evangelical wing of Dutch reformed protestantism emerged. Dooyeweerd is recorded to have had a prolific career as a researcher in philosophy, during which he wrote various profound literary works such as The New Critique of Theoretical Thought, Roots of Western Culture, and more. He is, without a doubt, one of the most important philosophers that the Netherlands has ever produced, comparable only perhaps with Baruch de Spinoza.
