(p.315) Conclusion
Translating the Enlightenment

Fania Oz-salzberger

Oxford University Press

This chapter sums up the key findings on the transmission of Scottish political ideas in Germany during the Enlightenment period. The early German reception of the works of the Scottish Enlightenment was a fruitful but short-lived encounter. Adam Ferguson's work represented a juncture at which several of the Scottish appeals converged. The reading of his works revealed the political kinship of Scotland and Germany, and the decline in the reception of his works during the last three decades of the 18th century exposed some of the cracks which were becoming increasing manifest in the complex facade of the European Enlightenment.

Keywords:   Enlightenment, political ideas, Scotland, Germany, Adam Ferguson, political kinship
