    So this is the fourth book I ve read by Schelling I really haven t read them chronologically actually quite the opposite I read the Philosophy Of Mythology first then his Philosophy Of Human Freedom then his Philosophy Of Nature, and then this work I ve liked all of them to a degree Schelling s system developed over time and in the course of a number of works When he wrote the System Of Transcendental Idealism, he was still very much a disciple of Fichte and this is evident when one read So this is the fourth book I ve read by Schelling I really haven t read them chronologically actually quite the opposite I read the Philosophy Of Mythology first then his Philosophy Of Human Freedom then his Philosophy Of Nature, and then this work I ve liked all of them to a degree Schelling s system developed over time and in the course of a number of works When he wrote the System Of Transcendental Idealism, he was still very much a disciple of Fichte and this is evident when one reads this book Much of his thought here depends on Fichte s Wissenschaftslehre Basically, it s a discourse on dichotomous notions of being Taking the basis from Fichte s system of the I and the not I , Schelling investigates the bridging of opposites, e.g self not self, finitude infinitude, limitlessness limitedness, unconsciousness consciousness, passivity activity, subjectivity objectivity, etc A lot of this was investigated in Fichte s works related to the Wissenschaftslehre loosely translated as the Science of Knowledge Knowing , which I am very acquainted with I purposely read Fichte thoroughly before reading this work Both writers seek to make subjective being actively objective in an idealistic manner, rather than in a realistic or empirical manner To go over this work in detail would make this review overlong and isn t necessary I recommend that people who are interested in Schelling, German Idealism, or philosophy in general, read it I gained a lot from it I actually probably liked his investigation of art at the end of the work the best I ve also come to appreciate the role that Schelling and Fichte played in the development of psychology as a science It s hard not to appreciate how much of the ground work was laid by them

    Kant talks at you while Hegel gives his reader poetry in motion Schelling in this book bridges the two in such a way that the twain meet The self of the self awareness, the part where nature meets our freedom in such a way that the subjective within us realizes the objective outside of us where the intuitive melds into the intuited and the space where every determination is a negation Schilling uses that Spinozian in this book but doesn t credit Spinoza He ll have the finite pretend to unde Kant talks at you while Hegel gives his reader poetry in motion Schelling in this book bridges the two in such a way that the twain meet The self of the self awareness, the part where nature meets our freedom in such a way that the subjective within us realizes the objective outside of us where the intuitive melds into the intuited and the space where every determination is a negation Schilling uses that Spinozian in this book but doesn t credit Spinoza He ll have the finite pretend to understand the absolute and ceaselessly becomes until it knows Schilling is onto something and gets close Read this book before you read Hegel s Phenomenology of Spirit since this book was meant to be understood on its own terms while according to Hegel nobody understood him except for one person and Hegel would even claim that person understood him incorrectly Irony is jealous of authenticity We live in a paradox wrapped in a riddle and peel the wrapping off till we get to the center of an onion where nothing resides except for remnants of expectations from our experiences Descartes primal error is assuming a world away in order to get the certainty of the self Schilling follows Kant and makes ourselves about ourselves about the self of the self awareness It will take Heidegger to give us present at hand, ready at hand, and dasein leading to being in the world such that the they, ambiguity, distractions, and attunement leads us away from authenticity and he does not assume the world away and makes us i.e dasein, that which takes a stand on its own understanding part of the world Schilling still atomizes us into monads but dances around it by making the subjective an objective by objectivizing the subjective while giving primacy to the self He almost gets where Heidegger will take us but gets distracted by the absolute If it s not obvious, I found this book incredibly fun to read Hegel must have too because I think Schilling channels Hegel better than Hegel at times and he wrote it before Hegel wrote his opus I wish I had a class assignment which required me to write a 20 page essay on what I thought about this book It would be a fun assignment and at the end I would be able to articulate at least to myself why this book is such a vital book today hint there are interesting connections to the measurement problem in physics that reside in the first half of this book and could be flushed out by somebody smarter and not as lazy as me, and there is being in time and being in space related to essence and accidents, there s a Henri Bergson Creative Evolution connection that seemed obvious to me but not to Wiki, and there are other multiple intriguing lines of thought that are worthwhile in themselves

    I was happy to find this as an e book at google books, particularly at the price compared to the usual for this sort of academic book.I wanted to read this after reading Coleridge s Biographia Literaria I found some parts of the book very rewarding I focused primarily on the beginning and the end The earlier parts discuss the first stages of the deduction of the universe from the original principle I thought this stuff was pretty interesting Past a certain point though the derivation seem I was happy to find this as an e book at google books, particularly at the price compared to the usual for this sort of academic book.I wanted to read this after reading Coleridge s Biographia Literaria I found some parts of the book very rewarding I focused primarily on the beginning and the end The earlier parts discuss the first stages of the deduction of the universe from the original principle I thought this stuff was pretty interesting Past a certain point though the derivation seemed to be pretty empty speculation Even fairly early on I had the feeling that some of the arguments weren t truly enlightening but were sort of sophistical tricks to prove theses that he believed in It seems to me that a truly compelling philosophical argument isn t just to achieve the result of proving some thesis That sort of argument really is usually pretty useless except in certain domains like logic Rather the best argument should really reveal something deep and interesting about the subject that thus compels agreement Still, I found the general picture that was being presented interesting I have a strange fascination with idealism In some ways I have a very strong feeling of How could anyone really believe that but at the same time, that very outlandishness has somehow attracted me for a long time to continue to study it.The other part that I focused on was the ending which details a theory of art Again, I think there are many would argue that such theorizing of art from such high level general principles is useless I have some real sympathy for that argument but at the same time am irresistibly drawn to it nonetheless This part was too short for me I would have really enjoyed readingin this vein Unfortunately, Schelling s Philosophy of Art goes off in a totally different direction that I found pretty useless The basic idea here is that the work of art is the highest approach to the general unity of the entire universe as it is the conscious fusion of the universal and the particular in a way that maintains the poles at the same time as showing the unity Philosophy is inferior as it subsumes the particular under the universal and treats the unity in abstract terms I think there s really something pretty interesting in this way of looking at art, the general metaphysical picture and all I realize this view makes me a leper in pretty much every circle intellectual or otherwise

    To read what feels like forcing yourself through a thorny bush, bleeding along the way, carving out a path through the thick and the sharp, in order to advance your understanding of philosophy, only to find that the conclusion states that the work of art is much higher than philosophy, seems like one large, elaborate, arduously worked out prank Compared to Fichte, this work seems only to contribute with a few sections by attempting to deduce objectivity and our transition toward it through the To read what feels like forcing yourself through a thorny bush, bleeding along the way, carving out a path through the thick and the sharp, in order to advance your understanding of philosophy, only to find that the conclusion states that the work of art is much higher than philosophy, seems like one large, elaborate, arduously worked out prank Compared to Fichte, this work seems only to contribute with a few sections by attempting to deduce objectivity and our transition toward it through the most convoluted manner Nevertheless, one gets a powerful though quite dry sense of negative thinking and transcendental method here
