»It is popularity which brings the truth into life in a pleasing guise without harming its goodness.« What may have been desirable in general for philosophy and literature was sheer necessity for popular Enlightenment. This is why since the beginning of popular Enlightenment the question of how to make the »people« understand the philosophy of the Enlightenment was widely discussed. In his work, Greiling addresses these discussions and integrates them into what is presumably the most significant »Theory of Popularity.«
