The aim of Thomas Ahnert’s research is to explain the reception and transformation of Newton’s ideas in German Enlightenment thought as part of a broader intellectual history of erudition in the eighteenth century. In doing so, he is focusing on the influence of two key intellectual concerns: philosophical eclecticism and metaphysics.
