Philosophischen Untersuchungen über das Wesen der menschlichen Freiheit und die damit zusammenhängenden Gegenstände Read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ñ Jeff Love and Johannes Schmidt offer a fresh translation of Schelling's enigmatL while also developing an astonishingly original conception of freedom and personality that exerted an enormous if subterranean influence on the later course of European philosophy from Schopenhauer and Kierkegaard through Heidegger to important contemporary theorists like Slavoj Žiž. Everything in this books seemed very interesting based on what I read on the back cover however Schelling for me was not a very familiar name even though this work apparently was a very great one in the history of philosophy With a great biographical introduction my version of this book has I kind of get the idea Schelling was a philosopher in an unfavorable time in some sense so his writing reflects the ideas of the time a clash between idealism and realism with instances of theosophy and as a response to Spinoza's pantheism That means that even though Schelling tries to navigate he navigates in my opinion in a landscape of bad philosophy Philosophy does not stand on itself but is mixed up with theology mystic thinking and a lot of unknowables In a way it's a good thing to have someone think in the corners of good and evil in relation to God man and how it affects freedom but when the groundwork seems to be on the wrong basis it becomes very intricate very fast It is very dense and complicated to follow I also think that reading it in Norwegian makes me confused because I usually read philosophy in English and use English terms Anyway I do find this book somewhat valuable both as a critiue of Spinoza but also as a work to look into when encountering the problems the book addresses I'm sure that when one thinks deeply about these things this book is one that is going to make much sense in order to find clarity even if it does not seem very clear from the get go I may well return one day in the future

Jeff Love and Johannes Schmidt offer a fresh translation of Schelling's enigmatic and influential masterpiece widely recognized as an indispensable work of German Idealism The text is an embarrassment of riches both wildly adventurous and somberly prescient Martin Heidegger claimed that. 09152004The Beginning of the End of the DialecticalThis book is important for several reasons I mention only a few here Schelling a great dialectical in the modern 'German Idealist' sense thinkerphilosopher in these pages makes a crucial admission of the impossibility of overcoming ancient esotericism Hegel makes a similar admission in the great preface of the Phenomenology For the sake of this short note let us think of the esoteric as the unchanging Schelling here admits that there is an unmediated 'basis' that accompanies us through all our dialectical adventures This 'origin' is subsumed in God but it is not 'overcome' or surpassed Indeed this 'basis' rages through at least all things capable like humans of spirit Schelling goes so far as to say that To separate from God they all creatures would have to carry on this becoming on a basis different from Him But since there can be nothing outside God this contradiction can only be solved by things having their basis in that within God which is not God Himself ie in that which is the basis of His existence It is this unmediated basis within God but forever separate from him unmastered even by Him that accompanies all things through their dialectical adventures In fact this unmediated 'pole' if you will threatens to drag us down back A genuine horror for all dialectical thought towards it All evil strives back towards chaos Schelling says Digressing for a moment I would like to point out that this eerily prefigures Nietzsche's remark that Everywhere the way to the beginnings leads to barbarism By this Schelling indicates or at least seems to that every dialectical step 'forward' can never outrun the shadow of chaos the negative the unmediated the unreasonable Is this the dawn of the postmodern I would also point out that Schelling in his later post 1809 speculations found something that genuinely caused him unease in this way of thinking After writing this essay 1809 he publishes next to nothing though he lives to 1854 Did he foresee the dialectical being swallowed up by the unchanging basis Nothing at all in creation can remain ambiguous he bravely says But the uncreated unknowable unmediated and unmastered Basis remains in God and in us all

review É PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ô Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling

Philosophischen Untersuchungen über das Wesen der menschlichen Freiheit und die damit zusammenhängenden GegenständeIt was one of the deepest works of German and thus also of Western philosophy and that it utterly undermined Hegel's monumental Science of Logic before the latter had even appeared in print Schelling carefully investigates the problem of evil by building on Kant's notion of radical evi. This is the second book I've read by Schelling and the premise is a perennial favorite among philosophers This book borrows uite a bit from Leibniz and Boehme and to some degree starts where they left off not that it recapitulates every viewpoint of those writers; Schelling does have his own views and his approach is often uniue Whether he solved all of the problems regarding the notion of freewill is open to debate but he does present some excellent points One almost has to be acuainted with Boehme and Leibniz to be able to follow his train of thought though Boehme's notion of the ungrund plays such a significant role that from what I can tell Schelling's work centers on it to a large degree I've read both Leibniz and Boehme and thought their ideas were interesting while also not always agreeing with them wholly It is hard to deny the latter's profound influence on the Romantics and the Idealists His influence is ubiuitousThis book is often held as being Schelling's best The book is very good but I actually liked his Philosophy of Mythology The ideas in it were a little uniue and thought provoking in my opinion
