Reinhart Koselleck (1923OCo2006) was one of most imposing and
influential European intellectual historians in the twentieth
century. Constantly probing and transgressing the boundaries of
mainstream historical writing, he created numerous highly
innovative approaches, absorbing influences from other academic
disciplines as represented in the work of philosophers and
political thinkers like Hans Georg Gadamer and Carl Schmitt and
that of internationally renowned scholars such as Hayden White,
Michel Foucault, and Quentin Skinner. An advocate of OC grand
theory, OCO Koselleck was an inspiration to many scholars and
helped move the discipline into new directions (such as conceptual
history, theories of historical times and memory) and across
disciplinary and national boundaries. He thus achieved a degree of
international fame that was unusual for a German historian after
1945. This book not only presents the life and work of a OC great
thinkerOCO and European intellectual, it also contributes to our
understanding of complex theoretical and methodological issues in
the cultural sciences and to our knowledge of the history of
political, historical, and cultural thought in Germany from the
1950s to the present."
