Linked bibliography for the SEP article "Johann Georg Hamann" by Gwen Griffith-Dickson

This is an automatically generated and experimental page

If everything goes well, this page should display the bibliography of the aforementioned article as it appears in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, but with links added to PhilPapers records and Google Scholar for your convenience. Some bibliographies are not going to be represented correctly or fully up to date. In general, bibliographies of recent works are going to be much better linked than bibliographies of primary literature and older works. Entries with PhilPapers records have links on their titles. A green link indicates that the item is available online at least partially.

This experiment has been authorized by the editors of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The original article and bibliography can be found here.

All translations from Hamann’s works and letters in this entry are by Gwen Griffith Dickson in works cited below, except for the translation from the letter to Kraus, which is cited in the translation by Garrett Green, in James Schmidt (ed.), What is Enlightenment? Eighteenth-Century Answers and Twentieth-Century Questions, Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1996.

Hamann’s writings

Hamann’s works, including those unpublished in his lifetime, were reprinted in a collection edited by Josef Nadler:

Hamann, Johann Georg, Sämtliche Werken, edited by Josef Nadler, 6 volumes, Vienna: Verlag Herder, 1949–1957; reprinted Wuppertal: Brockhaus, 1999.

Citations from this source, in conformity with common practice for Hamann references, are given above as: N II, 13:10. This means “Nadler’s edition, volume two, page thirteen, line ten.” This same mode of reference also applies to the translations in Gwen Griffith Dickson (see below), wherein the pages are laid out in as close an approximation as possible to Nadler’s edition.

However, Hamann researchers have subsequently established that the Nadler edition unfortunately is beset by a number of errors. New editorial activity is underway on Hamann’s writings and on his letters:

Johann Georg Hamann, Sokratische Denkwürdigkeiten. Wolken (Historisch-kritische Ausgabe) [Philosophische Bibliothek: 748], Leonard Keidel und Janina Reibold (eds.), Hamburg: Meiner, 2021.

Johann Georg Hamann, Fliegender Brief (Historisch-kritische Ausgabe) [Philosophische Bibliothek 707], 2 volumes, Janina Reibold (ed.), Hamburg: Meiner, 2018.
