Comments: The standard edition of writings by the founder of 18th century rationalism. Not included here is his Dictionnaire historique. "Bayle undermined all the philosophical positions of the great seventeenth-century metaphysicians, and posed basic problems that Berkeley, Hume, Voltaire, and others were to use to establish other approaches and alternatives". -Encylopedia of Philosophy I 261; Brunet I 711; Graesse 314.
