Overview

The subject of growing scholarly appreciation and interest, Francis Lieber (1798-1872) gained international renown as one of nineteenth-century America’s preeminent public intellectuals. He is also recognized as one of the most distinguished faculty members in the University of South Carolina’s institutional history. With Francis Lieber and the Culture of the Mind, Charles R. Mack and Henry H. Lesesne draw together an international group of scholars from fields as diverse as Lieber’s own multifaceted interests-cultural studies, history, law, linguistics, art history, philosophy, religion, and political science-to commemorate and reevaluate the German-American thinker’s legacy to the twenty-first century.

        A testament to Lieber’s pioneering interdisciplinary spirit, the essays investigate the major concerns of his political and moral philosophy, his interpretations of the U.S. Constitution, and his impact on international law and military conduct, as well as address his less studied interests in aesthetics and linguistics. Collectively these essays are a cogent introduction to the celebrated scholar and to the pervasive influence of his ideas on our world.

What People Are Saying

James A. Good
"One of the earliest university-trained German scholars to arrive in the United States, Francis Lieber is at long last beginning to receive scholarly attention after decades of undue neglect. Francis Lieber and the Culture of the Mind provides fifteen essays of the first rank that will undoubtedly inspire many to revisit the tumultuous life and multifaceted writings of this essential figure in the history of American moral, political, and legal thought"
Professor of History, North Harris College
