Figuren der Ähnlichkeit
Johann Georg Hamanns Analogiedenken im Kontext des 18. Jahrhunderts
[Figures of Resemblance. Johann Georg Hamann's analogous thinking in the 18th century context]
Aims and Scope
In contradiction to Foucault's theory of the end of resemblance in the 17th century, and in contrast to the conventional view that analogous thinking had ceased to have any major repercussions when the Enlightenment period set in, this study contemplates various philosophical, poetic, and religious analogy formations of the epoch. An overview of the history of this issue reveals analogy models in existence up to 1750. The second part of the study is devoted to forms and figures of analogy in the works of the Königsberg publicist Johann Georg Hamann (1730-1788), notably in his dialogues with the religious apologetics of the time, and with Socrates, Herder, and Kant.
