Bouwsma, Oets Kolk


Bouwsma, Oets Kolk
(1898-1978)
   A Christian philosopher in the Reformed theological tradition and a master stylist of the philosophical essay, Bouwsma displayed a unique skill of critiquing his various targets with eloquence and good humour. Among the essays that highlight Bouwsma's inimitable style are 'Descartes' Evil Genius', 'Naturalism' and 'Anselm's Argument'. Bouwsma was a friend of Ludwig Wittgenstein and developed Wittgensteinian ideas in his exploration of the nature of religious claims.
