In its series of publications on Classicism and Modernism the Foundation of Weimar Classics presents the fruits of its transdisciplinary academic research into European cultural history since 1750. The starting point is provided by the Age of Goethe and Schiller, which is perceived as the formative phase of aesthetic modernism. Internationally renowned scholars working from different perspectives illuminate those cultural historical traditions which were founded in the epochal historical context of Weimar Classicism and persist right up to debates in the present day.
