Repertorium der Nederlandse
is one of the major works of Professor Dr. Johannes Jacobus Poortman. This is a four-volume inventory of all publications in the Netherlands or in the Dutch language or by Dutch philosophers on philosophy. After Poortman died in 1970 the work was continued by Wim Klever. Now it can be consulted on-line as the Kennisbank Filosofie Nederland (KFN).
From the founding of the university campus till now, the amount of courses has been repeatedly enlarged. In 1965, the Kortrijk University Campus started with "Arts and Phylosphy" ('Letteren en
') (including Law). Six years later, in 1971, faculties "Medicine" and "Science" (including Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) were founded.
The majority of Dooyeweerd's published articles and multi-volume works originally appeared only in Dutch. During his lifetime efforts were already underway to make his work available to English-speakers. Translation of Dooyeweerd's writing has continued since 1994 under the oversight of the Dooyeweerd Centre (see link below). To date, thirteen books have been published in English, including his magnum opus, "De
der Wetsidee" (1935–6), which was revised and expanded in English as "A New Critique of Theoretical Thought" (1953–8).
Aeneae was a member of all learned societies in the Netherlands which only present membership as an appreciation of merit. The first to bring this honour were the Zeeuws and Provinciaal Utrechts Genootschap, followed by the Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen in Haarlem and the Genootschap der Proefondervindelijke
in Rotterdam. He was a contributing member of the Genoolschap der Proefondervindelijke Natuurkunde at The Hague since 1800, and he was one of the first members of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Stoker taught at PU from 1925 to 1970. He developed a unique strand of Calvinistic Philosophy called "Wysbegeerte van die skeppingsidee" or translated in English "Philosophy of the creation-idea". He's disagreed with Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven who called their Philosophy "
van die Wetsidee" or translated "Philosophy of the cosmonomic idea", because the creation was more encompassing principle for Stoker than the laws of creation. The name had the further benefit for Stoker that it was distinctly Christian, while the use of the term "law" instead of "creation" was preferred by Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven.
Both men had already been cooperating in the development of a uniquely Christian philosophy and their labours began to see considerable fruit over the next ten years. The mid-1930s saw a series of significant publications culminating in Dooyeweerd’s magnum opus "De
der Wetsidee" (The Philosophy of the Cosmonomic Idea) in three volumes. At this time Vollenhoven organised the "Association for Calvinistic Philosophy" which he served as president until his retirement in 1963, by then an international organisation with over 500 members. Dooyeweerd became the first editor of the Association's academic journal "Philosophia Reformata".
Dooyeweerd's overall conception is often referred to as the philosophy of the law-idea (Dutch:
der Wetsidee - "WdW," a nickname pronounced "vay de vay). Although his 5-volume major work in jurisprudence is only now in the process of being published, with the appearance of Volume I of Encyclopedia of the Science of Law , the ideas Dooyeweerd taught during his professorship in jurisprudence have been in circulation in the English-speaking world since 1953, when Dooyeweerd's first volume of "A New Critique of Theoretical Thought" appeared. This broader philosophical work establishes a context for both the juridical philosophy, and the various nationally-distinctive bodies of juridical scholarship.

It was in Rotterdam that he began preparations for his great work on "Nederlandsche Vogelen" (Birds of the Netherlands) that was published in installments by Christiaan Sepp starting in 1770. This work, finished well after both men had died in 1829, was the first "encyclopedic" book of the birds of the Netherlands (at that time including the area known today as Belgium). It was illustrated by Jan Christiaan Sepp and published by the naturalist Maarten Houttuyn. In 1767 he was awarded an honorary membership in the newly formed "Maatschappij der Nederlandse Letterkunde" and in 1769 he was himself one of the founders of the Rotterdam society "Bataafsch Genootschap der Proefondervindelijke
". In 1778, he was awarded honorary membership in the "Provinciaal Utrechts Genootschap". He died in Moordrecht in 1786.
Besides being involved with the "Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen", he was an ordinary member (5 December 1776) and a corresponding member (from 25 December 1776) of the Provinciaal Utrechtsch Genootschap van Kunsten en Wetenschappen, a member of the Bataafsch Genootschap der Proefondervindelijke
from 1784, a member of the Zeeuwsch Genootschap der Wetenschappen from 27 August 1782, corresponding member of the Académie des Sciences from 1783, and a member of the "Vergadering van Notabelen voor het departement Zuiderzee" from 29 March 1814. In 1808 he was asked by Louis Bonaparte to be a member of the committee for the formation of the Koninklijk Instituut along with Jeronimo de Bosch, Jean Henri van Swinden, and Martinus Stuart. He became member of the institute the same year.
Pursuant to Article 32 of the Constitution, the government established the Ministry of Education and Culture. Its Cultural Department had separate Archaeological, Art, and Language Divisions. The Art Division set up various educational institutes including the Indonesian Academy of Fine Arts, the Indonesian School of Music (both in Yogyakarta), and Karawitan Conservatoire in Surakarta (Central Java). The original Language Division was divided in 1952 into two parts, one retaining the name of Language Division in the Cultural Department, the other being included in the Institute of Literature (the former "Instituut voor Taal en Cultuur Onderzoek, Faculteit der Lettera en
van de Universiteit van Indonesi"). In the same year (1952), the Cultural Department opened cultural offices in the provinces: Medan (North Sumatra), Bukit Tinggi (Central Sumatra), Palembang (South Sumatra), Jakarta, Bandung (West Java), Surabaya (East Java), Makassar (South Sulawesi), Denpasar (Bali) and Ambon (Moluccas).
Following World War II, Vollenhoven put into operation the initiative to designate specific chairs for the promotion of Reformational philosophy at public universities in the Netherlands by providing for capital and an organizational base, and also by appointing suitable persons to carry this out. Vollenhoven was now well-known. During the war he had become the chairman of the "Algemeene Nederlandsche Vereeniging voor
" [General Dutch Association for Philosophy]. He remained in office until the 10th World Congress of Philosophy had taken place in Amsterdam in August 1948. In 1947 the Foundation for Special Chairs in Calvinistic Philosophy came into existence, with Vollenhoven as chairman. Among the persons appointed to chairs, some were former students of Vollenhoven. At the Vrije Universiteit itself, S. U. Zuidema was appointed, in part to relieve Vollenhoven of the introduction to philosophy course, which, with the growth of the student population after the War, had become quite demanding. He could now apply himself almost entirely to the history of philosophy. He chose to remain the chairperson of the Association for Calvinistic Philosophy till 1963, the year that he retired.
They asked for permission from stadtholder Willem V to award medals for answers to prize questions, as so many other societies did in those days. After obtaining his permission, they again needed to ask permission from the States of Holland and West Friesland, because the Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen had heard of their intention and protested. They felt that having two such societies in one province (the province of Holland) was in violation of their own privilege. The directors were able to convince the States of their case for a society in Rotterdam, however, and they obtained their privilege in 1770 and produced a program of prize questions the same year. Their first edition of their society magazine with the winning prize answers was published in 1774. It was called "Verhandelingen van het Bataafsch Genootschap der Proefondervindelijke
" and awarded a prize medal of 30 ducats in gold to winners. The medal was first designed by G. van Moelingen probably in 1769 and improved by Johann Georg Holtzhey after 1772. Later the prize medal was redesigned in 1866 by Johan Philip Menger. Hoogendijk himself lived to a great age and saw the society flourish. He also published a piece on a pyrometer in the first edition of the magazine in 1774.
