Research/publications

Theo Verbeek works mainly on early modern philosophy. Within that field he specifically concentrates on Descartes and Cartesianism (especially Dutch Cartesianism), Spinoza and the early Enlightenment. 

Current projects on Descartes focus on editorial problems, translations (Dutch translations of Descartes' passions de l'âme and of a selection of the correspondence), biography and methodological and epistemological problems in Descartes' 'scientific' work; Since his book on Spinoza's Theologico-political Treatise there has been a shift of emphasis in the direction of Spinoza's theory of mind and action.
