If in enlightenment wisdom and the institution derived from it were important and man faced nature, romanticism was a revolt against enlightenment and assumptions coming from it. The exponent of encyclopedia and the enlightenment thinkers were of the view that "wisdom" alone is the right path to understanding of the world and its foresight and other senses are weak. In contrast the romantics were of the view that "feelings" are the authentic sense for understanding, in other words mind accept a path which heart has guided it. The present article wants to examine the Romantic Movement and the grounds for the formation of it in Germany. Romanticism in Germany got an anti-French nature and France was like "the other" for German romantics. The paper also discusses the theory of romantic government and the thinking of Johann Hamann with emphasis on exclusivist aspect of this movement and its confrontation with enlightenment.
