本書是第一本將伊拉斯謨完整的文藝復興思想全譜以英語書寫成的單卷出版品,深刻地表達了只有像伊拉斯謨這樣偉大的作家,帶著優雅/神的恩典、機智和諷刺般的疏離感,才能有的成就。
在伊拉斯謨有生之年,他即是一位充滿爭議的中心人物,在他辭世後的四百年內,人們常常認為他是個完全極盡嘲弄與不虔敬的門徒。本書以伊拉斯謨身為人文主義者,融合當代以及基督徒的思想之觀點,重新理解伊拉斯謨。
 
[Original description]
In his own day a center of controversy, in the four hundred years since his death known too often solely as an apostle of mockery and irreverence, Erasmus can be seen today in a new light—as a humanist whose concern is at once contemporary and Christian.
 
The Essential Erasmus is the first single volume in English to show the full spectrum of this Renaissance man’s thought, which is no less profound because it is expressed with the grace, wit, and ironic detachment only a great writer can achieve.
 
關於編者:
Erasmus was a classical scholar and wrote in a pure Latin style. Among humanists he enjoyed the sobriquet "Prince of the Humanists", and has been called "the crowning glory of the Christian humanists". Using humanist techniques for working on texts, he prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament, which raised questions that would be influential in the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation. He also wrote On Free WillThe Praise of FollyHandbook of a Christian KnightOn Civility in ChildrenCopia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works.
