In the early years of the twentieth century, Professor Karl Lamprecht was a powerful and controversial figure in German academia, offering a universal interpretation of history that drew on an eclectic mix of politics, economics, anthropology and psychology.

Pairs of personae in nineteenth-century German historiography

As illustrated by his carefully restrained writing style, Erdmannsdörffer felt too much attracted to Rankean objectivity to fit Treitschke’s mould.66 Also, while his letters to Droysen reveal a lively interest in politics, he was never politically active.67 His research, too, moved beyond the political by venturing into ‘cultural history’, as Karl Lamprecht would soon call it.68 On top of that, Erdmannsdörffer did not have the rhetorical powers of his predecessors in Heidelberg, which forced him to develop an alternative to a tradition of spectacular lecturing
