Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Appearing here in English for the first time, this is F. W. J. Schelling's vital document of the attempts of German Idealism and Romanticism to recover a deeper relationship between humanity and nature and to overcome the separation between mind and matter induced by the modern reductivist program. Written in 1799 and building upon his earlier work, First Outline of a System of the Philosophy of Nature provides the most inclusive exposition of Schelling's philosophy of the natural world. He presents a startlingly contemporary model of an expanding and contracting universe; a unified theory of electricity, gravity magnetism, and chemical forces; and, perhaps most importantly, a conception of nature as a living and organic whole. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Steiner VINE VOICE on April 18, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This mysterious work marks a radical break in Schelling's philosophy of nature in its attempt to locate the ideal productivity of nature. This work-although merely an outline for a course taught by Schelling on the philosophy of nature, is an immensely complex work of metaphysical and empirical thought. Schelling locates the essential duplicity of nature in the perpetual dialectic of opposites. His conception of nature is both dynamic but also indebted to the idealist tradition in its search for the absolute. This work remains under-read today; it is both a major split in Schelling's corpus as well as a major development in the history of German Romanticism.
