Of Mendelssohn‘s ›Kleineren Schriften I‹ (Selected Essays I) those to be emphasized include ›Die Bestimmung des Menschen‹ (The Vocation of Mankind ), in the ›Oracle‹ and in the notes on the Abbt correspondence, possibly the ›most mature and the most eloquent expression of Mendelssohn’s religious ideology‹. The political ideas he expressed, especially as they deal in the ›Voten‹ (votums) with pressing issues discussed in the Berlin Wednesday Society, may also be of great interest. This volume conveys a lively impression of Mendelssohn‘s personality and the themes of his philosophizing.
