More About This Title Wilhelm von Humboldt and German Liberalism

English

The newly revised edition of Wilhelm von Humboldt and German Liberalism offers a unique and thoughtful look at one of the most remarkable individuals in late 18th and early 19th century German history and explores the foundations of liberalism in the country. Called the “greatest statesmen of Europe” by Madame de Stael, Wilhlem von Humboldt was a poet, classicist, translator and an author of books on history, political theory, diplomacy and several other topics. John Roberts’ book is based on a complete and thorough reading of von Humboldt’s writings and biography. The focus is to reassess the origins and particular nature of his writings in the context of an understanding of contemporary liberalism and liberal theory.
