Über Wissenschaft reden
Speaking about Science: Studies on Language Usage, Presentation, and Address in German Scientific Prose around 1800

Studien zu Sprachgebrauch, Darstellung und Adressierung in der deutschsprachigen Wissenschaftsprosa um 1800

Edited by: Claude Haas and Daniel Weidner

The volume examines the relationship between scientific self-understanding and scientific language usage in the German-speaking world around 1800. It discusses the re-founding of the university, the fraught relationship with rhetorical tradition, the presentational impact of scientific speech, and the political implications for audiences of this discourse.
