The essays collected in this „liber amicorum“ or „Festschrift“ were
written in order to pay respect to Gerrit Meijer, a genuine scholar who will
retire as reader from Maastricht University on October 17, 2003. His career
has involved extensive teaching at all levels, characterized by great
erudition, diligence, empathy, and willingness to speak his mind. This
stubbornness not to go with intellectual fashions is an extremely important
asset in the social sciences. It was his lonely voice in a hostile
environment that held up the recognition of European traditions in economic
thought which others were willing to either forget or set aside or else
never learn. In this sense, the current intellectual landscape in the
Netherlands, but not only there, is different from what it would have been
had Gerrit Meijer not exerted his influence. Hence, it is no surprise
that such a large group of scholars, all somehow related to Gerrit’s efforts,
have contributed to this volume.
