Focusing on Austrian culture between 1780 and the "revolution of the intellectuals" in 1848, "The Austrian Enlightenment and Its Aftermath" traces the growth and continuation of liberal ideals in a period of both repression and cultural flowing. Derek Beales asks whether Joseph II was simply an enlightened despot; Peter Horwath looks at the patrotic cult which inspired the utopian novel "Dya-Na-Sore"; and Joseph Strelka studies the Josephinist intellectual, Gottlieb von Leon. Masonic song and the development of the "Kunstlied", the complexities of the Biedermeier, Stifter's place in the Austrian Enlightenment, and the continuing tradition of the Catholic Enlightenment are also covered.
