Latitudinarianism and Didacticism in Eighteenth-Century Literature

Moral Theology in Fielding, Sterne, and Goldsmith

Patrick Müller

The relationship between Latitudinarian moral theology and eighteenth-century literature has been much debated among scholars. However, this issue can only be tackled if the exact objectives of the Latitudinarians’ moral theology are clearly delineated. In doing so, Patrick Müller unveils the intricate connection between the didactic bias of Latitudinarianism and the resurgent interest in didactic literary genres in the first half of the eighteenth century. His study sheds new light on the complex and contradictory reception of the Latitudinarians’ controversial theses in the work of three of the major eighteenth-century novelists: Henry Fielding, Laurence Sterne, and Oliver Goldsmith.

Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, ob und inwieweit die Vorstandsvergütung innerhalb einer faktisch abhängigen AG an der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung der Muttergesellschaft ausgerichtet werden kann. Hierzu wird zunächst ein Überblick über die verschiedenen praxisrelevanten Vergütungsmodelle verschafft. Anschließend wird das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen den Regelungen und Wertungen des allgemeinen Gesellschaftsrechts auf der einen Seite und den spezifischen Regelungen und Wertungen des Aktienkonzernrechts auf der anderen Seite aufgezeigt. Es wird sodann der Versuch unternommen, diesen sich hieraus ergebenden Normenkonflikt praxistauglich aufzulösen.

New Ages, New Opinions

Shaftesbury in his World and Today

Edited by Patrick Müller

Interest in Shaftesbury is as lively and productive today as it ever was. Indeed, the past decade has seen a veritable international renaissance in studies of his work. The various theoretical approaches of which modern critics and scholars can avail themselves are reflected in the different new interpretations we now have of Shaftesbury. This collection of essays manifests this diversity, offering a representative miscellany which covers a wide range of Shaftesbury’s own intellectual interests. The focus lies on the re-evaluations of his ethics, aesthetics, politics, religion, and literary criticism, as well as examinations of the reception of his works.

Shaping Enlightenment Politics

The Social and Political Impact of the First and Third Earls of Shaftesbury

Edited by Patrick Müller

This volume investigates the impact the first and third Earls of Shaftesbury had on Enlightenment thought. The focus is on both their tangible actions on the political stage of the day and on the more general intellectual repercussions of what these men stood for in word and deed. As a result, «Shaping Enlightenment Politics» offers important re-evaluations of what two towering figures of the age had to contribute to much-contested topics such as slavery, the discourse of civic humanism, or party politics.

Essays on Swift and his Contemporaries in Honour of Hermann J. Real

Edited by Kirsten Juhas, Patrick Müller and Mascha Hansen

On the occasion of Hermann J. Real’s seventy-fifth birthday, this collection honours a scholar whose contagious curiosity has been dedicated to the study of Jonathan Swift’s life and works for the past four decades. The contributions cover multiple aspects of the Dean’s writings as well as a number of eighteenth-century contexts. They not only celebrate the Director of the Ehrenpreis Centre at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster, the Editor of the annual Swift Studies, and the convener of six international Münster symposia on the Dean of St Patrick’s, but they also pay homage to the mentor, colleague, and friend. At the same time, they reflect the enduring vitality of Swift studies, which it has been one of Hermann J. Real’s greatest academic achievements to promote.
