(Link to Multatuli)
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
that include many philosophical ideas, all of which are on my site,
with my comments, all in Dutch.
