This chapter focuses on theorizations of the new concept of public opinion in the wake of the French Revolution. Christoph Martin Wieland's analyses, connecting with those of Immanuel Kant and Georg Forster, show that key elements of Virgil's conceptualization are still intact in the modern concept of public opinion.
