The University of Gottingen in 18th century Europe was one of the principal centres of intellectual innovation, spanning from universal history to anthropology, taking in economy and Biblical critique. Shortly after the foundation of the university in 1737, a ‘Göttingen model’ was imposed which, between the university, library and academy, placed the rapid circulation of books and ideas at the service of an intensive production of knowledge. An ideal and a creator of knowledge, Gottingen unites two genealogies: that of the Humboldt University and its fertile conjunction of research and teaching; and that of European academic ‘excellence’ as a reality and an ideology. The studies selected for this volume describe the ‘Gottingen model’ from the foundation of the university to the first decades of the 19th century. They relate this system to a scientific project: that of a ‘science of man’ adapted from the Scottish ‘Science of Man’ and enriched with French, Italian and Russian contributions. By showing how a little town in Hanover was able to make itself a centre of intellectual networks, they renew our perception of the capitals of knowledge in Europe of the Enlightenment.
