Digital Critical Edition of Magazin zur Erfahrungsseelenkunde Co-editor: Christof Wingertszahn (Goethe-Museum Düsseldorf).

The German periodical Magazin zur Erfahrungsseelenkunde (1783-93) contains ten volumes of short essays submitted by educated lay people describing aspects of the mind from an Enlightenment perspective, with a strong focus on aberrant psychology. The aim of the project is to make available a reliable digital edition of this resource with full-text search facilities and editorial commentary.
