Herder's Philosophical Poems (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Herder's Philosophical Poems Since Herder was from his youth a sworn enemy of all abstract know ledge and of all philosophical systems built on such knowledge, it has frequently been questioned whether he was a philosopher at all. Herder was, of course, pre eminently a poet, but a poet in the sense of the ancient Greeks according to whom the poet and the philosopher were identical. While we would not expect a Leibniz a spinoza or a Locke to express their purely speculative philosophy in poetry.
