Produktbeschreibung

Ethics in German maxims. A previously overlooked collection of German proverbs may represent only an attempt to create such a thing, but with over 1,740 carefully selected entries, it is certainly the largest collection of the 18th century. As a pastor and teacher, the author Wilhelm Wille (1734-1818), placed a particular value on the teaching of reason and wisdom and on popular pedagogy, placing himself firmly in the context of contemporary theories of reason. In the edition of 1781 Wille ordered the entries thematically rather than alphabetically, a peculiarity which usefully distinguishes it from other collections of the time. Wille decisively took issue with the works of other German scholars and included popular proverbs in his work, which gives it a greater importance than the paroemiographers of the 19th century recognised. Its significance for historical proverb research is further increased by the fact that Wille’s collection represents the first appearance in print of some proverbs, and offers interesting variants. Therefore this publication is not only a moral textbook but provides evidence of the high value placed on proverbial wisdom in the 18th century.
