Anonymität und Autorschaft
Zur Literatur- und Rechtsgeschichte der Namenlosigkeit
[Anonymity and Authorship. The Literary and Legal History of Anonymity]
Ed. by Pabst, Stephan
Aims and Scope
The author’s name is associated with concepts of originality and legal codification. These conditions of reading change if the name of the author is unknown. The contributions of this volume, written from a perspective of literary, legal and religious studies, explore the intentions that were pursued in the past by publishing texts anonymously. The relationship between anonymity and authorship is discussed in a fundamental way, and anonymity is reconstructed as a concrete historical situation of texts and as a condition for their meaning and function.

"Dem Band gelingt es, verschiedene Facetten anonymen und pseudonymen Publizierens zu veranschaulichen und darzulegen, dass Anonymität nicht nur ein Phänomen des 18. Jahrhunderts ist."
