Rudolf W. MEIJER's Private Website
- This website was primarily conceived as the home for my work
on the philosophy of Benedictus de Spinoza
I have produced a comprehensive
edition of his works which
I invite you to visit.
- One of my pastimes is programming,
and I have been professionally associated with the design
of several programming languages.
A special page on this site
is devoted to programming languages and the art of
- Several members of my family have their own business

Dirk J. Wiersma with samples of his photography,
the site of his artist daughter Dorine
the personal website of
Claudine Marichal, a lady with many talents who has worked as a secretary
in my unit.
- I am currently webmaster of the AIACE
site (association of retired EU officials).
- I have surfed the World Wide Web since 1994,
almost since its inception (see
Project Page as of 3 Nov 1992),
and like almost everyone else, I suppose, I have collected my own
set of links to sites either very well made,
or rich in content (or both), or otherwise worth re-visiting;
- some favourites I want to share with others are collected
on a separate page.
Some words about my working life
I have been a civil servant all my working life.
- As a curiosity, I offer a very serious description
of what that implies, in a document dating from before AD 750 (!)
Since I don't expect many people to read the Arabic original, here are
two fairly authoritative translations,
in English (Epistle to the secretaries) and French
(Lettre aux secrétaires).
- A not-so-serious contemporary description of life in the civil service is
the British TV series Yes Minister,
and its sequel Yes Prime Minister, which aired in the 1980s.
Hilarious but oh so true. There is a website still.
