First edition of the earliest book by the Swiss philosopher of history and politics Isaak Iselin (1728-82), founder of the influential Helvetische Gesellschaft and close friend and supporter of Pestalozzi. 'Iselin can be seen as one of the initiators of ‘popular philosophy’ in the German-speaking world, a movement which abandoned the Leibniz-Wolffian model of deductive philosophy. He placed greater emphasis on the form of philosophical writing, and thought that the essay, rather than the treatise, was the proper medium for spreading the ideas of the Enlightenment. This can already be seen in his early work, Filosofische und Patriotische Träume eines Menschenfreundes, which sketched the image of an ideal state and postulated love as the principle of the state. Here Iselin distinguished himself from the radical deistic and materialist movements of the French and British Enlightenment' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [vi], 192 pp., contemporary panelled calf, rubbed, spine gilt in compartments with morocco label, corners restored, edges red, marbled endpapers, internally fresh, no stamps or inscriptions, a very good copy.
