"This volume of translations of Herder's philosophical writings, many of which have never before been translated, is an important step in making herder accessible to readers who do not know German. Recommended." Choice
"This most welcome volume should serve to stimulate further interest in Herder and make his ideas more accessible to Anglophones. For the price, it is a real bargain!" German Studies Review, Joe K. Fugate
Herder is a figure of considerable importance in the history of philosophy and the history of ideas. His far-reaching influence encompasses philosophy (Hegel, Schleiermacher, Nietzsche), literature (Goethe, Schiller) and linguistics (von Humboldt). This volume presents a comprehensive selection of his writings in a new translation, with an introduction that sets them in their philosophical and historical context.
