Chapter Summary

The main reason for self-promotion is the search for the authorship according to maximized authorization. The social context in which the authorization strategy was effective, relatively narrow: it was restricted to the Respublica litteraria that was numerically small. In their preface texts presented the humanists to show that the members of the Respublica litteraria expected of each other that they would behave like the ancient Roman writer Pliny, Cato and Cicero. This expectation was closely associated with the idea of the book dedication. The members of the Respublica litteraria expected each other that they compose works in their spare time in order to present a friendship gift to each other. The evidence of moral qualifications provided by the author sometimes explicitly, such that it emphasizes the effort and time, which prepared the compilation of the material or the production process. The original text of the chapter is in German.
