Historische Uitgeverij

Historische Uitgeverij

In the more than twenty-five years of its existence, the Historische Uitgeverij has become a well-known presence in the Dutch-speaking cultural domain.

Having established itself as a small but ambitious publishing house, the Historische Uitgeverij has consistently proved to be an independent and innovative spirit. It has attracted attention by securing funding from highly regarded sources, support from respected authors and a typographical design that is both striking and elegant. Several of its publications have been distinguished with awards. It is active on the crossroads of history, literature, the sciences, art, philosophy and psychology, presenting original work by Dutch scholars as well as translations of great European thinkers, writers and poets, from the ancients like Aristotle, Lucrece and Hadewijch, to humanists like Dante, Vico and Pico, to more modern writers like Descartes, Burke and Baudelaire.
Historische Uitgeverij seeks to promote creative interdisciplinary crossovers and to sustain the search for new perspectives in the humanities. This is achieved through the publication of essays, studies and translations that show a clear interaction between up-to-date advanced academic research, the cultural legacy of the past and the demands of a modern readership.
It is the intention of Historische Uitgeverij to make an active contribution to the renewal of history and philosophy. For this reason it publishes well written works, full of vitality, by internationally acclaimed authors such as Douwe Draaisma, Frank Ankersmit, Vincent Icke, Jürgen Pieters, Luuk van Middelaar.
