By Oswald Bayer,Roy A. Harrisville,Mark C. Mattes

during this biography -- translated for the 1st time into English -- German theologian Oswald Bayer describes the existence and paintings of journalist-theologian Johann Georg Hamann (17301788). At a time while it appeared that the forces of secularization have been trying to declare the long run, Hamann churned out small courses geared toward undermining the Enlightenment zeitgeist, turning its assumptions the other way up and skewering its pretensions. even if mostly forgotten until eventually contemporary instances, Hamann as radical dissenter -- whom Goethe known as the "brightest guy of his age" -- is still suitable this day, as Bayer indicates during this book.
