[ISELIN, Isaak]. [WANDALL, Peder Topp trans.]

Philosophiske og Patriotiske Drømme af en Menneskeven. Oversatte af Peder Topp Wandall.

First Danish edition of Iselin’s earliest work, the very successful Filosofische und patriotische Träume. First published in 1755, a couple of years after his deeply affecting journey to France, having met among others Rousseau, Fontenelle and Buffon. His reformist version of utopia, a response to Rousseau’s ideal state of nature, aimed at sketching the traits of the optimum government in concrete terms of public administration, social structure, education and legality, and at tracing the history of human progress from barbarism to higher states of civility, which was to be the basis of the organic notion of state, as opposed to Rousseau’s theory of social contract. Iselin’s subsequent articles were infused with natural law arguments, with Leibniz’ and Wolff’s ‘enlightened’ logical tools, and with a practical view of religion as active and beneficial participation in the community.
