Moral and Method – Richard M. Meyer between Goethe, Nietzsche and George

Reading and discussion with publisher Nils Fiebig, Ralf Klausnitzer (HU Berlin), and the actor Frank Riede

In his literary salon at Voßstraße 16, everyone who had made a name for themselves in the Berlin cultural scene could be found – alongside Thomas Mann, Stefan George, and Ricarda Huch, also Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche. The literary scholar Richard Moritz Meyer became famous for an award-winning Goethe biography in 1894, and five years later his literary history of the 19th century was published. He also supported a number of contemporary authors as a discrete patron.

To mark the 100th anniversary of his death, a selection of Meyer's essays, lectures, and aphorisms will be published.

A cooperation with the Richard M. Meyer Foundation and Wallstein Publishers.
