Candide ist ein 1759 anonym erschienener satirischer Roman des französischen Philosophen Voltaire. Diese Satire wendet sich unter anderem gegen die optimistische Weltanschauung von Leibniz, der die beste aller möglichen Welten postulierte; stattdessen wird eine Auffassung sichtbar, die skeptischer und pessimistischer ist, beziehungsweise welche Leibniz' Postulat in den Kontext der Zeit stellt und dadurch relativiert.

Dieser Sammelband zu Gottfried Keller wurdigt den 150. Jahrestag der Publikation des ersten Bandes der "Leute von Seldwyla" und berucksichtigt die neue historisch-kritische Ausgabe von Kellers Werken, herausgegeben unter der Leitung von Walter Morgenthaler (2000). Der Band enthalt zwolf Beitrage von elf Autoren, die den Novellenzyklus von verschiedenen Seiten aus betrachten. Schwerpunkte dieser interdisziplinaren Studie sind die philosophische Position Kellers, seine Ansichten zur Schweizer Okonomie, zur Padagogik und zu politischen Tagesfragen der Zeit. Etwa die Halfte der Beitrage behandelt einzelne Novellen ("Kleider machen Leute, Die missbrauchten Liebesbriefe, Das verlorene Lachen, "die beiden "Vorreden"), wahrend weitere Aufsatze Kellers Realismus und seiner Erzahltechnik gewidmet sind. This book will take note of the 150th anniversary of part one of Keller's Seldwyla stories using the new critical edition of "Die Leute von Seldwyla," published in 2000 by Walter Morgenthaler. Though intended for scholars of German literature, the study, containing twelve contributions by eleven authors, is interdisciplinary in nature and discusses the impact of German philosophy (Feuerbach, Vischer) on Keller's work as well as Keller's interest in economics, education and Swiss political life. About half the contributions focus on individual stories, in particular "Kleider machen Leute, Die missbrauchten Liebesbriefe" and "Das verlorene Lachen," while the remainder either comment on Keller's two prefaces to the "Novellen" or deal with overarching aspects such as Keller's realism and his narrative technique."
