Childhood in Medieval and Early Modern Times. The eighteenth century brought new changes to the system of production that impinged on the built-in demographic structures discussed above. The history of European childhood as a field of study has virtually exploded since its inception in 1962 with the publication of Philippe Ariès's pioneering Centuries of Childhood: A Social History of Family Life. The pronounced population growth of the previous three centuries stretched the limits of agrarian technology, setting off a series of famines that produced widespread malnutrition.

We still know little of childhood in early modern European thought. By reconstructing philosophies of childhood in the works of rationalists not known to have reflected upon children, "Reason's Children" expands our understanding of philosophical reflection on childhood in early modern Europe. Central aspects of early modern philosophical systems - Descartes' prejudice and method, Leibniz's divine justice, Wolff's rationality, Baumgarten's aesthetic cognition - are reexamined in light of the peripheral status of childhood in their works. Furthermore, Krupp carefully examines the various children of Locke's Essay, most of whom have been neglected in histories of childhood. Beyond illustrating the blank slate thesis, Locke's children play other significant roles as well: as not-yet persons, as deficient speakers, and as changelings.
