Bernard Bolzano Gesamtausgabe / Reihe I: Schriften. Band 2: Erbauungsreden für Akademiker (Prag 1813)von Bernard Bolzano, bearbeitet von Jaromir Louzil, Eduard Winter, Jan Berg, Friedrich Kambartel, Jaromír Louzil, Bob van Rootselaar und Edgar Morscher
This volume, published in 1813, contains the first selection of edification speeches which Bolzano had held up to that time as a professor of Catholic religious education at the University of Prague. In these speeches, Bolzano advocated pacifist and socialist ideas and called for a humane constitution which guaranteed fundamental human rights. This led to his instant dismissal in the winter semester of 1819/20. In 1828 this edition of the ›Erbauungsreden‹ (edification speeches) was put on the index of prohibited books.
