Description:

This is the first encompassing anthology in English excerpted from Herder's earliest to his latest writings on world history and related topics. Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803) was an enormously influential German critic and philosopher. He put forward the idea of cultural nationalism--that every nation has its own personality or folk spirit, and pattern of growth. This idea had tremendous significance for world history, both the actual events and the study of history. Annotated.
