Marcel de Corte on Charles De Koninck

Over at The Josias we have published a new translation of a wonderful essay by Marcel de Corte on Charles De Koninck. It begins with de Corte’s memories of meeting De Koninck, whom he loved and admired. They were both of Belgian peasant stock, although De Koninck was Flemish and de Corte Walloon. (Hence the “De” in De Koninck is capitalized and means “the,” whereas the “de” in de Corte is not capitalized and means “of”). He goes on to give profound reflections on De Koninck’s realism, and the way in which his practical philosophy depended on his speculative realism.
