Rudolf W. MEIJER's Private Website
- This website was primarily conceived as the home for my work
on the philosophy of Benedictus de Spinoza
I have produced a comprehensive
edition of his works which
I invite you to visit.
- One of my pastimes is programming,
and I have been professionally associated with the design
of several programming languages.
A special page on this site
is devoted to programming languages and the art of
Some words about my working life
I have been a civil servant all my working life.
- As a curiosity, I offer a very serious description
of what that implies, in a document dating from before AD 750 (!)
Since I don't expect many people to read the Arabic original, here are
two fairly authoritative translations,
in English (Epistle to the secretaries) and French
(Lettre aux secrétaires).
- A not-so-serious contemporary description of life in the civil service is
the British TV series Yes Minister,
and its sequel Yes Prime Minister, which aired in the 1980s.
Hilarious but oh so true. There is a website still.
