General note"This book collects essays that stem from a series of initiatives ... set up by a Dutch-Flemish research group and sponsored by the NWO and the FWO (respectively, the Dutch and Flemish Research Foundations). Running for eight years (2002-2009) the group's activities resulted in four book-length collections of essays in Dutch, a selection of which is presented here in translation"--Page 1.
