Johann Georg Hamann: Religion und Gesellschaft
[Johann Georg Hamann. Religion and Society]
Ed. by Beetz, Manfred / Rudolph, Andre
Aims and Scope
To know the nature of a man, noted J. G. Hamann in 1759 in his “Morsels, Crumbs, and Fragments,” you must inquire about the conditions of his life. The 24 essays in the present volume reveal Hamann’s position at the crossroads of different social constellations. They raise new questions about the Königsberg scholar’s ideas regarding the history of society and religion, social theory, economics, philosophy, political science, and religious studies. In this way, they help us to more precisely locate Hamann’s place in the key discourses of the Enlightenment.
