Is the logic overrated

Important stations of German literary history are linked with Schlegel, such as, for instance, Leipzig of the rococo period, Jena of idealistic philosophy, Berlin of Prussian reforms, Napoleonic Paris, Vienna of the Restoration, as well as a whole gallery of important personalities , beginning with his brother August Wilhelm through figures such as Wilhelm von Humboldt and Görres to Metternich.

Schlegel's role as founder of modern philology can also hardly be overrated.

His wide-ranging comparative studies, his productive connection to contemporary philosophy and aesthetics, his concept of the term work, his reflections on generic poetics, on intensive reading as a foundation of systematic literary studies, on linguistic theory, on translating, on literary criticism and literary history, and not least on edition set standards still valid, particularly today, for the self-reflection of the humanities.
