Thread: Johann Christian Wolf - the "Middleton' grammatical argument

  1. Default Johann Christian Wolf - the "Middleton' grammatical argument

    Johann Christoph Wolf (1683-1739)

    Curae philologicae - Vol 5
    Johann Wolf
    p. 293-315

    II. Not a few of those, who rightly and religiously defend this very expression, are too eager in seeking out and employing supports even of such a kind as have no strength. That has occurred to a distinguished man, Leonard Twells, whose miscellaneous production Wolf has translated from English into Latin, and with a few corrections, has put forth on this passage, pp. 300—313. I read and attentively considered Twells before the publication of my Apparatus : Wherefore, when I proceeded with more of self-distrust than he did, I did not do so without good reason, and I would have the reader imagine that there is matter for deliberation. I am not aware that anything new needs particularly to be supplied : I will mention a few points, which bear upon the subject.

    The Grammatical is covered well also in Forster (also citing Burgess)

    And Wolf has more, and this pic has interesting references.
