The unorthodox style and the diversity of Jacobi’s thought can best be experienced in his notebooks, the ›Denkbüchern‹. They show someone whose profession was philosophy, far removed from academic constraints, someone who was passionate and an intellectual, someone who wrote down the things that moved him: precursors to philosophical debates, spontaneous thoughts on literature or politics, collectanea as well as transcripts of letters received or drafts of his own letters. The ›Denkbücher‹ are considered to be the key to understanding many ambiguous passages and thus constitute an indispensable addition to the correspondence and his works. It is only through these that many of Jacobi’s thoughts have been handed down. The eleven extant notebooks are now available in this text-critical edition.

Reviews

Victor Béguin, Archives de philosophie

»Autant dire que l’attente était grande, et que la publication intégrale des Denkbücher par Sophia Victoria Krebs, dans le cadre du projet de l’Académie des sciences de Saxe dirigé par Walter Jaeschke et Birgit Sandkaulen, est un événement. [...] On peut espérer qu’un matériau aussi passionnant suscite l’intérêt de nombreux chercheurs et chercheuses, notamment en France, où la pensée de Jacobi n’a pas encore reçu l’attention qu’elle mérite.«
