Publisher's Description

In this biography -- translated for the first time into English -- German theologian Oswald Bayer describes the life and work of journalist-theologian Johann Georg Hamann (1730–1788). At a time when it seemed that the forces of secularization were attempting to claim the future, Hamann churned out small publications aimed at undermining the Enlightenment zeitgeist, turning its assumptions upside down and skewering its pretensions. Although largely forgotten until recent times, Hamann as radical dissenter -- whom Goethe called the "brightest man of his age" -- remains relevant today, as Bayer shows in this book.

Editorial Reviews

Manfred Kuehn
-- Professor of Philosophy, Boston University
"This book by Oswald Bayer has been the classic introduction to Hamann's thought in Germany since 1988. It is first and foremost an attempt to show that Hamann is not merely a historical figure but a thinker whose ideas are just as relevant today as when he first proposed them. I am glad that I can refer my English-speaking students to this book now, and I hope that the English translation will provide an impetus to the further study of this deep thinker who is still not sufficiently appreciated in Englishspeaking countries."

Peter Leithart
-- Pastor, Trinity Reformed Church, Moscow, Idaho
"It takes a prophet to contribute to debates two hundred years before they start. J. G. Hamann is that rarity. . . . Bayer's excellent book shows Hamann's importance to today's debates about language and meaning, religion and science, God and time, reason and faith, postmodernity, liberal political order, and theological interpretation of Scripture. No century has needed Hamann's profoundly Christocentric dissent more than ours."

Gwen Griffith-Dickson
-- Director, Lokahi Foundation, London
"Oswald Bayer here draws on his lifetime of scholarship to produce a broad-ranging, fresh, and engaging introduction to this important but neglected thinker. Those who are interested in the core issues of philosophy and theology will benefit richly from acquaintance with Hamann. . . . To this enigmatic and challenging writer there can be no better guide than Oswald Bayer."
