Description
The contributors to this new philosophi­cal and historical examination of Vico, Herder, Schiller, and Goethe are Karl J. Fink (University of Kentucky), James W. Marchand (University of Illinois), Harry Ritter (Western Washington University), K. Michael Seibt (Brigham Young University), and David R. Ste­venson (Kearney State College). Their essays and commentary address the question why this generation represent­ed by its great minds suddenly discov­ered science—a question posed previ­ously but only tentatively explored.

 

Taken together, the essayists reveal significant new insights into the roles of language, imagination, intuition, em­pathy, modes of perception, and indiv­idualism in scientific creativity and pro­vide important new contributions to the history of arts and sciences.
