Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768–1834) was a prodigious letter-writer. Volume 13 of the fifth section of this critical edition of Schleiermacher’s complete works contains his correspondence from July 1813 to December 1816. At the moment of the victory over Napoleon that he himself had longed for, he became increasingly despondent about political developments in Prussia and the time that the events of the day had cost him for his own projects.
