Most widely held works by Heiner Klemme
Reception of the Scottish Enlightenment in Germany six significant translations, 1755-1782 by Heiner Klemme( )

8 editions published in 2000 in German and English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scottish philosophy had a decisive impact in the 18th century, not only on the English-speaking world but also on the Enlightment in central Europe. That impact was perhaps most greatly felt in Germany, where the advancement of Scottish moral sense philosophy, Hume's Scepticism and Common Sense philosophy was marked by a series of important translations. Six of the most significant texts, most of them very rare today, are reprinted here. Although some of the works by Scottish philosophers were known and discussed before the death of Christian Wolff, their importance increased considerably after the decline of German school metaphysics around the middle of the century. English at that time was less widely known, so the German editions became highly influential. The translations were often by important German Enlightenment thinkers and philosophers such as Lessing and Christian Garve, and several were provided with interesting introductions and commentaries by their translators and editions. In the case of Hume's first "Enquiry", the editor Johann Georg Sulzer, an adherent of Wolffian metaphysics, commented extensively on Hume's philosophy. It was this translation that famously woke Kant from his "dogmatic slumber"
The reception of British aesthetics in Germany seven significant translations, 1745-1776 by Heiner Klemme( )

8 editions published in 2001 in German and English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transfer of intellectual ideas between European countries during the period known as the Enlightenment was largely dependent upon the abilities of translators and philosophers, who had to convey and make comprehensible, complex and new ideas expressed in one language to those who thought and wrote another. Often, they had to invent or conceive a completely new terminology to express what the British authors intended to say. That many of the terms they introduced are now part of common German is a sign of their abilities. It was through endeavours of man like Spalding, Mylius and Reseqitz that Shaftesbury, Hutchson, Hogarth, Hume, Burke and Gerard's aesthetic ideas found followers and critics away from home. With new introductions these texts, which are often even rarer than the original English editions, should further understanding of the dissemination of aesthetics and philosophy within the German tradition of the European Enlightenment. Sulzer, Lessing, Mendelssohn, Kant, Herder, Goethe and Schilller, for instance, cannot be understood without the pioneering work of these translators. Furthermore, since they had a significant influence on the aesthetic vocabulary of 18th and 19th century German aesthetics in general, they are also important for the further development of that discipline in Germany

Religion within the boundaries of mere reason and other writings by Immanuel Kant( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason is a key element of the system of philosophy which Kant introduced with his Critique of Pure Reason, and a work of major importance in the history of Western religious thought. It represents a great philosopher's attempt to spell out the form and content of a type of religion that would be grounded in moral reason and would meet the needs of ethical life. It includes sharply critical and boldly constructive discussions on topics not often treated by philosophers, including such traditional theological concepts as original sin and the salvation or 'justification' of a sinner, and the idea of the proper role of a church. This volume presents it and three short essays that illuminate it in new translations by Allen Wood and George di Giovanni, with an introduction by Robert Merrihew Adams that locates it in its historical and philosophical context. -- Back cover
