during this biography -- translated for the 1st time into English -- German theologian Oswald Bayer describes the existence and paintings of journalist-theologian Johann Georg Hamann (17301788). At a time while it appeared that the forces of secularization have been trying to declare the longer term, Hamann churned out small guides aimed toward undermining the Enlightenment zeitgeist, turning its assumptions the other way up and skewering its pretensions. even supposing mostly forgotten till contemporary occasions, Hamann as radical dissenter -- whom Goethe referred to as the "brightest guy of his age" -- continues to be proper this day, as Bayer exhibits during this book.
