Selected Writings on Aesthetics
Johann Gottfried Herder
Edited and translated by Gregory Moore

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This much-needed book brings into English a philosopher severely underrepresented in this language, yet of paramount importance to any adequate understanding of the late eighteenth century in Germany and indeed of the rest of Europe."--Robert E. Norton, University of Notre Dame

"This collection provides translations of the most important aesthetic writings of Herder, a crucial, original thinker in the field of aesthetics, an important influence on later German philosophy, and a writer whose significance has also been acknowledged by such recent thinkers as Isaiah Berlin and Charles Taylor. Even advanced scholars sometimes find a translation useful for such a difficult writer, and some of the writings translated here, such as Critical Forests, are not very easily found even in German."--Michael Inwood, Trinity College, Oxford

"This is a timely translation because Herder's importance is more apparent than ever and his work is undergoing a significant revaluation."--Cyrus Hamlin, Yale University
