Schelling's Berlin lectures

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


After a period of neglect, the idealist and romantic philosophies that emerged in the wake of Kant's revolutionary writings have once more become important foci of philosophical interest, especially in relation to the question of the role of religion in human life. This chapter offers a reading of the lectures Friedrich Schelling gave at the end of his life. The chapter argues that Schelling's Berlin lectures signal the possiblity of new approaches to both philosophy and religion. At the very least they challenge us to rethink the terms in which religion and mythology are discussed.
