    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Aesthetics was founded as a separate philosophical discipline by scholars at the University of Halle in the second third of the 18th century. At the same time, the question of the “whole man” was a topic of heated debate in Halle: a new science of humanity, i.e. anthropology, had begun to emerge. It is therefore appropriate to speak of the “equiprimordiality” of aesthetics and anthropology, the basis of which is explained in this book.

    "Die vorl. Studie (zugl. Univ. Hannover, Diss., 2008/09) zu den Theorien der Zeugung und Entwicklung menschlichen Lebens analysiert die regionale Verbindung von Philosophie, Theologie, Medizin und Ästhetik in Halle in der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jh. [...]. Der Verf. betont dabei das Nebeneinander unterschiedlicher Ansätze sowie die theologische und vor allem konfessionelle Fundierung der Aufklärung."
