This volume provides annotations for the approximately 125 articles by Mendelssohn in the ›Briefen, die neueste Litteratur betreffend‹ (1759–1765) (Letters concerning the Most Recent Literature) and shows the scope of his essays on the most important humanities-related institution of the »Berlin Enlightenment«. Moreover, the commentary includes the thematic connections between Mendelssohn’s reviews and those of his contemporaries and for the first time calls attention to Hamann, Kant, still unknown at this time, Boscovich, the physicist and Leeuwenhoek, the biologist. The merits of Spinozas, still unrecognized at that time, as well as contemporary philosophy and aesthetics are also discussed.

Reviews

Reinhard Aulich, Zeitschrift für Germanistik

Die Rezensionsartikel Mendelssohns zu den ›Briefen‹ [...] und der zugehörige Kommentar [...] sind eine Edition comme il faut. [...] Die Anmerkungen zu den Briefen in Bd. 5,1 [...] lassen jedes Literaten-, Philologen- und Historikerherz höherschlagen.
