After the Truce, it was published in yet another edition now supplemented with a Spieghel der Spaensche Tyrannye, Gheschiedt in Nederlandt, onder Philippus, Coninck van Spaengien Mirror of the Spanish tyranny, exerted in the Netherlands under Philip, king of Spain.
The publication of those descriptions lasted well past the time of the publication of the Elzevirian Republics.
Hispania and Portugallia did not contain similar descriptions of atrocities or cruelties, and they did not or only marginally touch on the main themes of the leyenda negra. Granted, the Elzevirian Republics were anything but neutral, yet they were free of hatred and even the partiality they embodied was very particular: in its explicit form it was limited to the introductions and very few chapters of the books. This myth as well is usually considered to be part of the leyenda negra and the Elzevirian Republics might have contributed to the dissemination of this idea in the extra-Spanish world.
Those perspectives can be described as the result of a combination of distance and interest, but an interest dictated by a feeling of superiority. They correspond exactly to the perspectives I consider to be characteristic of the seventeenth-century Amsterdam merchant-regents: the latter recognized that a certain degree of pragmatism was necessary for them to succeed in their business affairs.
The Elzevirian Republics and more specifically the descriptions of Spain and Portugal are perfect examples of this. On the contrary, the methods they posited for a better understanding of nature were the same as — and probably even inspired by — the ones they proposed for a better understanding of historical, political and social phenomena. Correspondingly, the Royal Society was one of the first early modern institutions systematically to advance empirical and experimental knowledge about foreign countries and peoples.
Filosofia No Brasil
Important examples were the questionnaires their early secretary Robert Hooke handed to merchants and travelers in order to record their experiences and to use them subsequently for scientific research. As Antonio Barrera-Osorio has shown, many of those questionnaires relied on early colonial and, again, mercantile experiences of Spaniards in the New World.
Bacon had written eloquently that scholars should work like bees, going back and forth between the work of collecting and the interweaving of information. Here as well we can discern affinities.
Such observation owes much to recent studies of the history of epistemic virtues and the pre-history of modern objectivity. For my purposes, however, both are equally illuminating. Daston declares objectivity to be a radically new value of the nineteenth century. According to Solomon, merchants and travelers knew more than anybody else that they could only succeed if they initially distanced themselves from their own interests and deferred to the views of the people whom they visited and with whom they traded. Bacon transferred this principle to the scientific context arguing that natural philosophers should likewise distance themselves from their interests and defer to the things they observed in nature so that they could then use their knowledge to pursue their interests and rule over those things.
The parallels between the perspective I have traced in the Elzevirian Republics and the one Solomon describes with regard to the English context are evident. In Hispania and Portugallia their stance was expressed through a particular form and content. The particular form was the compilation.
The particular content was the myth of Spanish decline. As one piece of evidence to which I will only briefly allude here because it goes beyond the scope of this essay we might consider the impact of Neo-Stoicism on early modern Dutch culture which Gerhard Oestreich so strikingly captured in several of his books and essays. New elites took shape that over time would become significant power factors. Parts of these elites were the merchant-regents who had little in common with earlier generations of merchants. They had wealth, lived from their capital and were engaged in government and administration.
Their new social position found expression in a new mentality which scholars generally trace back to the years around and which they link more or less explicitly to the emergence of a stock market. The merchant had hardly any cares; and he had wealth at his disposal that allowed him the possibility of studying law, of furthering his education, in the best instance through educational tours; and then, should he so desire, to preoccupy himself with governmental matters. One might well suspect that it is precisely this type of merchant that both Barlaeus and De Laet envisioned.
In the morning he would go to the Athenaeum to hear the Latin lectures of the famous professors; at noontime he would check in at the Bourse to follow stock developments; and in the afternoon he would devote himself to studying scientific books, among them descriptions of the world such as the Elzevirian Republics. For this merchant there was little difference between merchant-knowledge and that pertaining to governance. What is more, his knowledge was an integral part of his self-image and identity.
After , the term mercator sapiens became an honorary title given to those who had taken the important step into a new era. His identity was tightly bound up with the image and identity of the city of Amsterdam. As the city changed when the university was founded, so did the merchant when he came into contact with scholarly studies. It was through his erudition that he was ennobled. His wisdom made him into a merchant-regent and philosopher-prince who, for his part, promoted scholarship and contributed to its success.
Interestingly enough, not only De Laet but also Barlaeus treat the Spanish as one nation among many, once a political enemy but now a commercial partner that must therefore be observed with an impartial and objective eye. The first lesson is a lesson in the history of early modern state descriptions. The second lesson is a lesson in the history of knowledge and epistemic virtues. Both are of course interconnected. The second lesson is connected to the history of knowledge and epistemic virtues in early modern Europe.
The ideal of the mercator sapiens serves not only as further proof for the connection between those attitudes and early modern merchant cultures but it also helps to link early modern objectivity with superiority. And it would also be clear that the prehistory of aperspectival objectivity comprised epistemic attitudes and virtues such as the perspective of superiority and distance that I have traced in seventeenth-century Dutch state descriptions, but that most likely can also be located in other fields of knowledge and stages of the history of the social sciences and the humanities.
I am grateful to all colleagues, friends, and librarians for their support.
