this book falls heavily on shelling, rather than hegel. but, i gained some interesting insights for my hegel research. he also includes the emphasis on language with regard to "absolute knowledge". grad-level. a few "hegel" chapters. i'm glad i got it.

To begin with, the word "suspension" in the title is a translation of the German word usually translated in Hegel as "sublation". So this is, basically, a Schelling scholar telling Hegel scholars how they should go about their business. And the book is mainly about Schelling. So its title should really be: _The Sublation of Reason in Schelling(and Hegel)_.

The main point of the book seems to be that what Hegel does in the Reason chapter of the Phenomenology, and what Schelling does in the Freedom Essay are comparable. In both cases a sublation of reason is supposedly involved. This couldn't be further from the truth.

Hegel's Phenomenology has the same form as his philosophy of spirit, which is: subjective spirit, objective spirit, absolute spirit. In the Phenomenology the section on Consciousness, as well as the chapters on Self-consciousness and Reason correspond to subjective spirit. The Spirit chapter corresponds to objective spirit. And the Religion and Absolute Knowing chapters correspond to absolute spirit. Subjective spirit has to do with a given individual. Objective spirit has to do with social and political philosophy. And absolute spirit has to do with art, religion and philosophy.

So the Reason chapter is not about the sublation of reason as such. It is about the sublation of individual reason, leading to the transition to social and political philosophy. There is no such transition in Schelling becuase, as far as I know, there is no social or political dimension to Schelling's philosophy.

It is the Revealed Religion sub-chapter of the Phenomenology that corresponds to Schelling's Freedom Essay. In fact it is most likely that Schelling's Freedom Essay is a direct response to the Revealed Religion sub-chapter.
