Despite the benevolent intellectual climate of the 1960s in Germany which had witnessed a reappraisal of earlier attitudes towards the eighteenth century in general, and towards the Aufklarung in particular, relatively little has since been done to pursue this stimulus to its logical conclusion-or to a discussion of possible conclusions. By looking beyond artificial literary classifications at the historical data and by accumulating detailed empirical evidence this study seeks to reappraise this situation, firstly by establishing a case which overcomes the traditional antithesis of Aufklarung and Sturm und Drang, and secondly by presenting a clear picture of the degree and nature of Lessing's influence on German dramatists from Herder to Schiller. Contents: Aufklarung and Sturm und Drang: (Re-) Definitions-Lessing as precursor of the Sturm und Drang before 1769-Lessing's Attitude towards Writers of the Sturm und Drang-Emilia Galotti-The Reception of Lessing by the Sturm und Drang Writers
