Miscellaneous Reflections / Vermischte Betrachtungen

Shaftesbury’s ›Miscellaneous Reflections‹ is by no means a melange of thoughts on randomly picked subjects: it stands in a sense as Shaftesbury’s running commentary on the five other treatises assembled to form his ›Characteristicks‹. In the guise of a detached critic, he picks up and expands on various of his central themes, discussing also, at times in satirical mode, his own role as an author. Readers approaching ›Characteristicks‹ as a coherent, structured whole are provided in this text with a wealth of significant material.
