Essays Commemorating the 250th Anniversary of His Birth


Charlotte M. Craig

This volume of essays is to commemorate Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799) on the occasion of the two-hundred and fiftieth anniversary of his birth. The brilliant eighteenth-century German physicist, philosopher/essayist is particularly noted for his significant aphoristic production. The contributors represented are American and Canadian scholars who are treating a variety of topics within Lichtenberg's intellectual and literary sphere. The study seeks to augment Lichtenberg scholarship by illuminating topics not heretofore addressed.
