About the Author

Matthew Bell is Senior Lecturer in German and Director of the Comparative Literature Programme at King's College London.


'Bell does an excellent job of charting the German psychology of his chosen period, exploring the expression of psychological theories ... He succeeds admirably in one of his stated goals, which is to show that theoretical developments in psychology had a significant impact upon the literature and thought of the period. ... As an illumination of an important part of psychology's 'long past', this work is masterful ... students of literature and comparative literature will celebrate Bell's exploration of the rich vein of psychological ideas to be found in the German literature and thought of the period covered.' The Times Literary Supplement
