Kulturtransfer taktischer und strategischer Theorien in den Niederlanden und Frankreich (1590-1660)
[Military Theory in Late Humanism]
Series:Frühe Neuzeit 160
Aims and Scope
This book deals with the connection of humanism and the military based on the cultures in the Netherlands (Low Countries) and France in the late 16th and the 17th century. The cultural transferral processes of ancient military theory in the context of late humanistic culture of scholarship are disclosed in the reacquisition of ancient tactical and strategic teaching traditions. Generally emphasis is placed on Justus Lipsius – in this case an abundance of further theorists and texts are included: such as Claude Saumaise, Gabriel Naudé, Henri de Rohan and Richelieu.
This work applies a revisionist structure by correcting the foreshortenings of the Oestreich school with regard to the embedding of the military reform of the House of Orange in the political neo-stoicism and the thesis of social disciplining, as well as the interpretation of the military revolution.
