Comparison between Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven

Page just started ...



Glenn Friesen discusses the differences between Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven. The following is text and links he has provided for The Dooyeweerd Pages, for which we are very grateful ...

Dooyeweerd's philosophy has frequently been associated with that of his brother-in-law D.H.Th. Vollenhoven, who taught philosophy at the Free University. For a long time it was assumed that the philosophies of Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven were similar, or at least compatible with each other. In fact they differ on almost every key point. For study purposes, Dr. Friesen has translated the following three articles by Vollenhoven showing Vollenhoven's own disagreements with Dooyeweerd:

Vollenhoven's disagreements with Dooyeweerd are not widely known, and they will no doubt surprise many reformational philosophers. Dr. Friesen lists more than 50 key philosophical differences between Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven. By understanding these differences, the distinct ideas of each of these philosophers can be better understood.

This page is part of a collection of pages about Dirk Vollenhoven, within The Dooyeweerd Pages. Its purpose is to briefly explore links between Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven. Email questions or comments would be welcome.
