Lessing: Philosophical and Theological Writings

Full Product Description

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729-81), thinker, dramatist and controversialist of many-sided interests, is the most representative figure of the German Enlightenment. His defence of Spinoza, who had traditionally been condemned as an atheist, provoked a major controversy in philosophy, and his publication of H. S. Reimarus' radical assault on Christianity led to fundamental changes in Protestant theology. This volume presents the most comprehensive collection to date in English of Lessing's philosophical and theological writings, several of which are here translated for the first time. They are edited and translated by H. B. Nisbet, who also provides an introduction that sets them in their historical and philosophical contexts.

Lessing: Philosophical and Theological Writings by Gotthold Lessing was published by Cambridge University Press (Virtual Publishing) in April 2011. The ISBN for Lessing: Philosophical and Theological Writings is 9780511810138.
