Kritik der historischen Vernunft in Zeitschriftenform

Die Kulturtheorie der Zeitschrift für Völkerpsychologie und Sprachwissenschaft und ihre medialen Bedingungen im mittleren 19. Jahrhundert

Stefan Reiners

Abstract

This paper deals with Moritz Lazarus and Heymann Steinthal’s 19th century journal Zeitschrift für Völkerpsychologie und Sprachwissenschaft and its media-historical context. I will argue that the medial form of the journal enabled Völkerpsychologie’s founders to put their theory and methodology into practice by creating a forum for interdisciplinary collaboration and unification of the humanities as psychology and thus achieving their goal of a ʻcritique of historical reasonʼ, i. e., revealing the historical nature of reason, ethics, and culture in general.
