Research group on private modern philosophy collections

This research group aims to publish online or CD catalogues of important private collections from philosophers and from scholars with large collections of philosophy texts.

Our research around the philosophical texts present in the private collections of philosophers and scholars (historians, legal experts, men/women of letters and scientists) from the end of the 1600s to the beginning of the 1900s does not aim at intellectual biography or mere erudition but rather endeavors to facilitate research in philosophical history and the history of ideas.
