Anti-Goeze ... D.i. Nothgedrungener beytraege zu den Freywilligen beytraegen des hrn. past. Goeze
Waisenhausbuchhandlung Braunschweig: [Waisenhausbuchhandlung], 1778. Recent boards covered in brown paper specked with black in the style of the era; age-toning and some dampstaining, not beyond "typical." Overall, a good copy of a complete set of Lessing's eleven arguments.. Small 8vo (17.5 cm; 7"). 11 numbers in one volume, each 16 pp. Lessing was one of the fathers of German Idealism during the Enlightenment and among other things is remembered for having provided “the foundation of a modern philosophy of religion" (Yasukata, Lessing's Philosophy of Religion and the German Enlightenment, p. 89). Johann Melchior Goeze (1717–86), a contemporary of Lessing, was a spiritual leader of the Lutheran Church in Germany and familiar with literature; he took up writing histories and apologetics and, because of their differing views on religion and ideals of the Enlightenment, he and Lessing entered into a debate.While the two are said to have remained cordial, the debate was so "bitter" that the Duke of Brunswick (Lessing's supporter) "intervened, silencing Lessing" (Oxford Companion to German Literature, 2nd ed., p. 554)!Printed here are Lessing's portions of the eleven exchanges in that debate.
