Dichter und Bürger in der Provinz
These are the papers delivered at an interdisciplinary conference organized in Ansbach to mark the 200th anniversary of the death of Johann Peter Uz. Major concerns are the relevant philosophical and theological foundations of Uz' anacreontic and philosophical writings, the literary traditions operative in them and the way they reflect social contexts and the history of events. Thus, it is possible to examine a representative example of 18th century literary history as an instance of the unremitting relevance of Enlightenment à la Halle 'in the provinces' until well after the middle of the century. The volume concludes with an Appendix containing a hitherto unpublished letter from Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten, source texts on the response to the Lisbon earthquake in German-speaking countries, and a bibliography of Uz' works.
