Isaac Vossius, Robert Hooke, and the early Royal Society’s use of Sinology

Abstract:
This paper examines the engagement of the scholars Isaac Vossius and Robert Hooke with some sinological materials in the later seventeenth century. It argues that the disagreement between these two men on how to interpret Chinese culture may be seen as an early encounter in the Ancients v. Moderns dispute, as well as the earliest English scholarly engagement with China.
