Formen und Bedeutung der Weltanschauungsliteratur bei Kurd Lasswitz

Résumé : Kurd Lasswitz’s fundamental concern was to simultaneously foster the progress of the natural sciences and to protect the legitimacy of religious belief. This contribution will investigate the argumentative, rhetorical, and stylistic means that Lasswitz employs in order to defend his difficult position. In the course of the investigation, the discrepancy between the various texts concerning world-views and his productive activity as a writer will become evident, the latter of which takes up the same themes and topics, yet clearly deviates from them with respect to its tone and goal. The author is constantly concerned with providing a basis for an understanding of the world that depends on natural science and is yet to maintain the rights of ethics and aesthetics for the sake of “progress of the process of culture”.
