Zedlitz was the most powerful advocate of the Enlightenment in the Prussian Government, and was in his post from 1771 until replaced by the anti-Enlightenment Wöllner in 1788, two years after the death of Frederick I. He took a personal interest in Kant's work and career, attending the lectures on his philosophy in Berlin by Markus Herz, requesting transcripts of Kant's lectures, and encouraging Kant to move to a more influential and better placed post in Halle.

Kant scholars have often puzzled over the reasons for Kant's 'silent decade'of the 1770s - they should take a look at his workload of teaching and administration during this period. 36. Although Kant's income was sufficient to take on a servant in 1751 - the surly Lampe - most of his period as a Privatdozent was passed in relative poverty. His income from teaching was not high, and even so he would often excuse poorer students their fees, while the income from his publications was inconsiderable.

According to an inventory taken after his death, Kant owned 450 unbound volumes, most of them the gifts of publishers and not held in particular esteem by their owner. 59 The history of Kant's publishing enterprise shows a steady development from his addressing first a local, then a national and ultimately an international audience. By the 1780s he possessed a reputation outside of Prussia in both Protestant and Catholic German principalities. His philosophy was known and taught in the universities and, as his correspondence testifies, was familiar to and esteemed by those excluded from the university such as women.
