[Skepticism, Providence, Polyhistory. Jakob Friedrich Reimmann (1668-1743).]
Ed. by Mulsow, Martin / Zedelmaier, Helmut
Aims and Scope
Jakob Friedrich Reimmann stands between Baroque and Enlightenment. He is one of the major representatives of early 18th century historia litteraria, that forgotten discipline which set out to be a history of education, science and the book, and which Reimmann himself applied systematically to a whole range of subjects and cultures. His oeuvre may be seen as typifying the tensions emerging between an inherited faith in providentially ordained history and a new skeptical/hypothetical scientific culture.
