Multatuli  
(Link to Multatuli)

English: Multatuli was the alias of Eduard Douwes Dekker, a Dutch philosopher, writer, atheist and social reformer who lived from 1820-1887.

He wrote an amazingly beautiful Dutch, had many interesting ideas, and was one of the few true geniuses writing in Dutch.

If you do not read Dutch, there is a translation of "Max Havelaar" by Multatuli in Penguin Classics, while a considerable amount of his work that he published himself has been translated into German.

Of the "Max Havelaar" - a classic attack on Dutch colonialism, first published in 1860, and mostly autobiographical - there are many translations in many languages, including French and Korean.

He wrote 7 volumes of Ideas ("Ideen"), that include many philosophical ideas, all of which are on my site, with my comments, all in Dutch.

Dutch/Nederlands:

De integrale tekst van Multatuli's 7 delen "Ideen" staan op de site en zijn voorzien van mijn uitgebreide kommentaren.
