The paper explains that Johann Gottfried von Herder held that language and poetry are spontaneous necessities of human nature rather than supernatural endowments. The author points out that Johann Georg Hamann, Germany's most famous poet-philosopher, is considered father of both German Classicism and Romanticism. The paper concludes that the real purpose of their philosophy is to make all individuals realize their self-interest and self-consciousness, which in turn puts them on the highest rung of the ladder of consciousness and on the path of moral growth.
