It is usually assumed that the only British Romantic writer who engaged meaningfully with German philosophy was S. T. Coleridge. This edition disproves that assumption. The book collects thirteen essays and one set of lecture notes written by Henry Crabb Robinson during his period in Germany (1800-1805).
Robinson, though generally considered no more than a reporter on the activities of more eminent friends, in fact wrote a series of 'Letters on the Philosophy of Kant', distinguished for their clarity, accuracy, and liveliness. Furthermore, his lecture notes on Schelling and German aesthetics provide a valuable guide to the key German texts.
