Die gottliche Offenbarung ist dabei fur das Menschengeschlecht das, was d Die Erziehung des Menschengeschlechts" ist das religionsphilosophische Hauptwerk Gotthold Ephraim Lessings. Die gottliche Offenbarung ist dabei fur das Menschengeschlecht das, was die Erziehung fur den einzelnen Menschen ist. Diese "Erziehung" erfolgt im Wesentlichen in drei Stadien: Im ersten geschieht sie durch unmittelbare sinnliche Strafen und Belohnungen; im zweiten Stadium werden durch die Lehre von der Unsterblichkeit der Seele Lohn und Bestrafung ins Jenseits verlagert; und in einem dritten Stadium wird es keine Belohnungen und Strafen mehr geben, weil die menschliche Vernunft so weit entwickelt ist, dass die Menschen das Gute tun, weil es das Gute ist.

Diese drei Stadien durchlaufen alle Volker, so dass man an ihren positiven Religionen den jeweiligen Entwicklungsstand ihrer Vernunft erkennen kann. Get A Copy. Kindle Edition , 22 pages.

An interesting short book that I had not read before; it is Deistic in tone and essentially argues from a progression from Revelation to Reason; viewing the Old Testament as progressing to the New Testament as progressing to the Enlightenment and beyond to the Perfection of Man.

Lessing also hints at the possibility of re-incarnation - harkening back to Socrates - at the very end. Mar 29, Abu.

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing was a German writer, philosopher, dramatist, publicist, and art critic, and one of the most outstanding representatives of the Enlightenment era. His plays and theoretical writings substantially influenced the development of German literature.

He is widely considered by theatre historians to be the first dramaturg. Lessing was born in Kamenz, a small town in Saxony. His fa Gotthold Ephraim Lessing was a German writer, philosopher, dramatist, publicist, and art critic, and one of the most outstanding representatives of the Enlightenment era. His father was a clergyman and the author of theological writings. Afra in Meissen from onwards he studied theology and medicine in Leipzig — From to he lived in Leipzig and Berlin and worked as reviewer and editor for, amongst others, the Vossische Zeitung.

In he took his Master's degree in Wittenberg. In he returned to Berlin, only to leave again in to work for three years as a dramaturg and adviser at the German National Theatre in Hamburg. His tenure there was interrupted by many travels. For example, in he journeyed to Italy accompanied by Prince Leopold. She died in after giving birth to a short-lived son. On 15 February , Lessing, aged 52, died during a visit to the wine dealer Angott in Brunswick.

Lessing was also famous for his friendship with Jewish-German philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. In his celebrated biography of Mendelssohn's famous grandson, Felix, Larry Todd describes their friendship as one of the most "illuminating metaphors [for] the clarion call of the Enlightenment for religious tolerance". Lessing was a poet, philosopher and critic. His theoretical and critical writings are remarkable for their often witty and ironic style and their unerring polemics.

Hereby the stylistic device of dialogue met with his intention of looking at a thought from different angles and searching for elements of truth even in the arguments made by his opponents. For him this truth was never solid or something which could be owned by someone but always a process of approaching. Early in his life, Lessing showed interest in the theatre. In his theoretical and critical writings on the subject—as in his own plays—he tried to contribute to the development of a new bourgeois theatre in Germany.

With this he especially turned against the then predominant literary theory of Gottsched and his followers. He particularly criticized the simple imitation of the French example and pleaded for a recollection of the classic theorems of Aristotle and for a serious reception of Shakespeare's works. He worked with many theatre groups e. In Hamburg he tried with others to set up the German National Theatre. Today his own works appear as prototypes of the later developed bourgeois German drama.

His theoretical writings Laocoon and Hamburg Dramaturgy Hamburgische Dramaturgie set the standards for the discussion of aesthetic and literary theoretical principles. Lessing advocated that dramaturgs should carry their work out working directly with theatre companies rather than in isolation. In his religious and philosophical writings he defended the faithful Christian's right for freedom of thought. He argued against the belief in revelation and the holding on to a literal Books by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing.
