Enlightenment is discourse, and where it became historically influential, it is life-organizing practice. Diversity and coherence of enlightened practices were part of the organized operations of institutions that incorporated enlightened discourse. Enlightenment spawned and influenced institutions, and, from the perspective of practical orientation, Enlightenment lived within institutions. Contributions in this volume also address a spectrum of other subjects. They are presented in comparative perspective to enlightened institutions such as schools, libraries, and poor houses, from practical perspectives of everyday life such as politics, administration, education, religion, and literature, and of the geographical perspectives of France, the old German Reich, Italy, and Denmark.

Die christlichen Erweckungsbewegungen des 19. JAhrhunderts stellen ein vielgestaltiges und international agierendes historisches Phanomen der neueren Religionsgeschichte dar. IN den letzten Jahrzehnten fanden sie zwar in der internationalen, nicht aber in der deutschsprachigen Historiographie die ihnen gebuhrende wissenschaftliche Beachtung. DIe sechzehn internationalen Beitrage des vorliegenden Bandes widmen sich diesen unterschiedlichen religiosen Formationen multiperspektivisch und bieten nicht nur neue Ergebnisse, sondern markieren zudem zentrale Perspektiven und Probleme ihrer Erforschung.

The philosophy of the Enlightenment still greatly influences our thinking today. This is especially true of Immanuel Kant, whose writings on moral philosophy, theory of law, philosophy of history, and political theorymoulded decisively the concept Enlightenment based on terms like reason, critique, and immaturity. The contributions deal with Kant s work in a historical and systematic perspective and examine the philosophical significance of Kant s enlightenment philosophy as well as discuss its meaning for the future of Enlightenment thought.

This volume is the twelfth to date in a series of works in French or English presenting the epochs and movements of a Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages (Histoire Comparée des Littératures de Langues Européennes). The original intention of the editors was to publish a four-volume history of European literature from 1760-1820, and the first of these volumes, Des Lumières au Romantisme. Genres en Vers, appeared as long ago as 1982. The volumes Genres en Prose and Théâtre are still awaited. In their absence the present volume, Epoche im _berblick, attempts a more comprehensive and rigorous treatment of the period and its historiographical problems than was initially planned, providing the reader with an overview of sixty eventful years of European literary history — years in which German Classicism coincided with the birth, initially in Germany and England, of Romanticism. And at the centre of this turbulent period of European intellectual and literary history stands the French Revolution.

The Swiss author Johann Georg Zimmermann (1728'1795) is widely regarded as a prototype of the physician-cum-writer. The present monograph stems from the research field of literary anthropology. It begins by investigating Zimmermann's views on human destiny in the contemporary context. Subsequently five sets of issues are addressed as the basis for an analysis of his magum opus Ãber die Einsamkeit (On Loneliness) (1784/85). In an attempt to situate it in the contemporary landscape, the analysis inquires into the literary features of Zimmermann's oeuvre against the background of the epoch in which it was written. It also sets out to pinpoint links between Zimmermann's works and the history of medicine and science, as well as delineating the author's specific brand of pious Enlightenmentalism.
