Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Emergence of Impartiality contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, notes on editors and contributors, and a list of illustrations. Tracing its emergence in various fields, the contributions in the book demonstrate how the notion of impartiality is intimately implicated in epochal early modern shifts in epistemology and science, religious and political discourse, print culture, and scholarship. From the early seventeenth century, the new epithet 'impartial' appears prominently in a wide range of publications. Contributors trace impartiality in various fields: from news publications and polemical pamphlets to moral philosophy and historical dictionaries, from poetry and drama to natural history, in a broad European context and against the backdrop of religious and civil conflicts.

Keywords: civil conflicts; epistemology; impartiality; polemical pamphlets; religious conflicts
