Laura Anna Macor's Die Bestimmung des Menschen (1748-1800): Eine Begriffsgeschichte is atestament of an enormous philological, historical and philosophical work, one that was no doubt necessary to deal with the amplitude and complexity of the concept it discusses. As Macor herself notes at the beginning of the book, while being maybe one of the fundamental ideas of German's late Enlightenment, the concept of the "Bestimmung des Menschen" (which could be translated as "the destination of man",
