This study is an investigation of the impact of Spizan metaphysics on German-speaking writers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In terms of specific works by Friedrich Schiller and C.F. Meyer, this influence has hitherto gone unticed. Though it has long been recognized that George Buechner was profoundly affected by Spizism, in-depth treatments of this important dimension of his thought have, by and large, been lacking. This book contains an attempt to come to terms with significant aspects of Buechner's reception of Spiza, as found both in his literary and n-literary writings.
