About this title:

Synopsis: This is a study of how political ideas travel across languages and cultures. It examines the reception in Germany of the civic theories of the Scottish Enlightenment thinker Adam Ferguson, and shows how German intellectuals misread his work, but in a way which opened up many fruitful insights.

From the Back Cover: This is a study of the transmission of political ideas across languages and cultures. It focuses on a notably fruitful encounter between two eighteenth-century political cultures: the reception of Scottish civic ideas, voiced most powerfully in the works of the Edinburgh historian-philosopher Adam Ferguson, by German thinkers in the era of Enlightenment, and early Romanticism. Fania Oz-Salzberger's detailed and challenging analysis places Ferguson in the context of the Scottish Enlightenment, and highlights the affinities and differences between his milieu and that of his German readers. She traces the German reception of Ferguson's thought, pointing at conceptual stumbling-blocks and linguistic tensions. Dr Oz-Salzberger describes a complex, often unintended shift of Scottish civic language into a German vocabulary of spiritual perfection and inner life. This process, she argues, was far from futile: the reading and misreading of Ferguson and other Scottish authors enriched German intellectual life in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a study of the transmission of political ideas across languages and cultures, and in particular of a notably fruitful encounter between two distinct branches of eighteenth-century political discourse: the reception of Scottish civic ideas, developed most powerfully in the works of the Edinburgh historian-philosopher Adam Ferguson, by Geman intellectuals of the Enlightenment and Romantic eras.Fania Oz-Salzberger's detailed and challenging analysis places Ferguson in the context of the Scottish Enlightenment, and explores the impact of his theories on German Enlightenment thinkers. She traces the passage of Ferguson's civic humanism across linguistic and cultural borders, and highlights the linguistic stumbling-blocks and conceptual tensions that resulted. Dr Oz-Salzberger argues that there resulted a complex and largely unintentional shift of Scottish civic concepts into a Germanvocabulary of spiritual perfection and inner life, and that the misreading of Ferguson and other Scottish thinkers contributed much to the richness of German intellectual life in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
