By Joseph Wälzholz

ISBN-10: 3835318934

ISBN-13: 9783835318939

Die erste umfassende literaturwissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Autobiographie Salomon Maimons, dem Schrecken der Berliner Aufklärung.

Salomon Maimon struggle der Schrecken der Berliner Aufklärung: Ein um 1753 in Litauen geborenes Wunderkind, das jung verheiratet wurde und mit Anfang zwanzig seine große Familie verließ, um als Bettler durch Europa zu irren. Ein Außenseiter, Alkoholiker und Provokateur, der in Berlin immer wieder Gönner fand, die er dann regelmäßig beleidigte. Ein Jude, der kein Jude sein wollte, dem die Gesellschaft aber keine andere Wahl ließ. Ein genialer Philosoph, der Kant herausforderte und inspirierte. Kant schrieb, keiner seiner Gegner habe ihn so intestine verstanden wie Salomon Maimon. In seiner »Lebensgeschichte" (1792 /93), der ersten Autobiographie eines Juden in Deutschland überhaupt, schildert Maimon sein abenteuerliches Leben.
Im Wechselspiel zwischen erzählerisch-witzigen und philosophisch-ernsten Stilebenen legt Maimon dar, wie er stetig versuchte, die Widersprüche zwischen faith und Vernunft aufzulösen und wie sein Leben gerade dadurch zu einem ›asozialen‹ wurde. Den Bestrebungen christlicher Aufklärer, verschleierte Konversionsforderungen an die Juden zu richten, tritt Maimon energisch entgegen. In offensiver Manier zielt er auf die politische und moralische Ignoranz seiner sich für aufgeklärt haltenden Zeitgenossen.
