    Aims and Scope

    Kant as the leading representative of the philosophical enlightenment and the seer Swedenborg, regarded as the father of modern esotericism, would appear at first sight to be two diametrically opposed 18th century figures. At the same time, Swedenborg was one of the few authors to whom Kant dedicated a work of his own– the Dreams of a Spirit-Seer. Since then, controversy has surrounded Swedenborg’s significance for Kant’s philosophical biography and the history of his works. In the present volume, philosophers, religious scholars, theologians and literary scholars from six countries present their– far from consensual– interpretations of the relationship between Kant’s critical philosophy and Swedenborg’s “visionary realism”.

    "Der Band ist lesenswert für alle, die an einem differenzierten Kant- und Aufklärungsbild interessiert sind, zumal der Leser auch viel erfährt über die unmittelbare Rezeptionsgeschichte des „Träume‟-Buches und sich damit neue Fragen zur Genesis des Deutschen Idealismus stellen."
    Martin Arndt in:ZRGG 3/2009
