Small though it is, the Netherlands is one of the most dynamic and productive countries in the world and thus has had an incomparably larger impact than size alone might suggest. Some of this was in the field of action—agitating for independence, fighting for its rights, dominating the seas, creating a far-flung colonial empire. Some was mercantile and straightforward business, from the Middle Ages to the present day. But the Netherlands has also made its mark in the arts, generating more than its share of painters, musicians, and writers. Its thinkers, whether in the area of philosophy, religion, or economics, were also prominent. Yet even quite ordinary Dutch have contributed to a mood of individualism and innovation that permitted them to follow new paths and launch new experiments. This willingness to differ and to seek alternatives is still there and will be more important than ever in the future.
