Göthes Philosophie. Eine vollständige, systematisch geordnete Zusammenstellung seiner Ideen über Leben, Liebe, Ehe, Freundschaft, Erziehung, Religion, Moral, Politik, Literatur, Kunst und Natur; aus seinen sämmtlichen poetischen und wissenschaftlichen Werken. Hamburg: Friedrich Hermann Nestler, 1825-26.
- First edition, compiled by Friedrich Karl Julius Schütz and published a few years before Goethe's death in 1832. 'Goethe wrote no texts which might be called downright philosophical in the contemporary meaning of the word. There is a Study in accordance with Spinoza of 1784/5, the years when Herder and Goethe were involved in the pantheism debate of the 1780s. There are some essays on the influence which contemporary philosophy exercised on his thought, on method in natural studies, and on aesthetics. There are Maxims and Reflections collected and organized by the editors after Goethe’s death, but these important aphorisms had not been planned for publication by their author – a smaller collection, however, is included in Wilhelm Meisters’ Years of Travel. Goethe protested during his lifetime that he was not a philosopher – certainly not one in the manner of contemporary idealistic philosophers or of the systems philosophers of the German Enlightenment who had been in vogue when he was a student . Goethe’s relation to philosophy is not at all marked by shyness, but it is highly selective, and to a certain degree Goethe never denounced his early conviction that philosophy is included completely in religion and in poetry. Indeed, many of his poetic works have a strong philosophical reading, and he discussed the philosophical relevance of Faust with Schiller because the philosophers were curious about it' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 7 volumes, small 8vo, c. 2200 pp., uncut in publisher's printed wrappers, rubbed and with some loss at extremities, one spine split and textblock parted, occasional light browning and spotting, bookplates of Otto Hein and Bernhard Stübner, a sound set housed in a later cardboard case which overall measures 18 by 14 centimetres. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
