Main Philosophical Writings and the Novel Allwill by Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi

This scholarly edition is the first extensive English translation of Jacobi's major literary and philosophical classics. A key but somewhat eclipsed figure in the German Enlightenment, Jacobi had an enormous impact on philosophical thought in the later part of the eighteenth century, notably the way Kant was received and the early development of post-Kantian idealism. Jacobi's polemical tract concerning the "Doctrine of Spinoza" in letters to Herr Moses Mendelssohn propelled him to notoriety in In a comprehensive introductory essay, di Giovanni situates Jacobi in the historical and philosophical context of his time, and shows how Jacobi's life and work reflect the tensions inherent in the late Enlightenment. It may rank in importance, say, with the first English translation of Pascal or Vico. I have every reason to believe it will find its place on library shelves everywhere as the accepted standard translation of Jacobi in English.
