Humboldt, Wilhelm von: Briefe Juli 1795 bis Juni 1797
[Letters, July 1795 to June 1797]
Ed. by Mattson, Philip
Aims and Scope
This volume focuses on Friedrich Schiller, who leaves Humboldt in mid-1795 "for a few weeks" that turn into 16 months after Schiller finds his mother mortally ill in Berlin. The two men continue by letter the philosophical conversations they had been conducting in Jena on a near-daily basis. Many of the c. 170 letters in this volume, written before Humboldt left Jena in 1797, are also addressed to Goethe, C. G. Körner, Jacobi, and F. A. Wolf.
