Recent years have witnessed a resurgence of scholarly interest in the work of Johann Georg Hamann (1730-1788), across disciplines. New translations of work by and about Hamann are appearing, as are a number of books and ar-ticles on Hamann's aesthetics, theories of language and sexuality, and unique place in Enlightenment and counter-Enlightenment thought. Edited by Lisa Marie Anderson, Hamann and the Tradition gathers estab-lished and emerging scholars to examine the full range of Hamann's im-pact-be it on German Romanticism or on the very practice of theology. Of particular interest to those not familiar with Hamann will be a chapter devoted to examining-or in some cases, placing-Hamann in dialogue with other important thinkers, such as Socrates, David Hume, Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, and Ludwig Wittgenstein.
