Associate Professor Courtney Fugate awarded an NEH grant from the Scholarly Editions and Scholarly Translations program
The Scholarly Editions and Scholarly Translations program supports collaborative teams who are editing, annotating, and translating foundational humanities texts that are vital to scholarship but are currently inaccessible or only available in inadequate editions or translations. With Professor Fugate as PI, his team will receive a 3-year grant of $300,000 for work on The Tetens Project. Johann Nicolaus Tetens (1736-1807) was one of the most important German philosophers of the 18th century; his work influenced Kant and, through Kant, later German philosophy. The project aims to publish, in print, a six-volume translated and annotated edition of the major philosophical works of Tetens, and to create a digital edition of the texts.
