Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Puts Schelling in conversation with twentieth-century continental philosophy.

The Conspiracy of Life
offers a series of meditations on the philosophy of F. W. J. Schelling (1775–1854), a great—and greatly neglected—philosopher of life. Rather than construing him as a loopy mystic, or as an antiquated theologian, Jason M. Wirth attempts to locate Schelling as the belated contemporary of thinkers like Heidegger, Derrida, Bataille, Irigaray, Foucault, Deleuze, Levinas, and many others. As such, Schelling is already at the central nerve of current discussions concerning the crisis of truth; the primacy of the Good; the ecstatic nature of time; the nature of art; deep ecology; the world as an aesthetic phenomenon; comparative philosophy; the possibility of non-dialectical philosophy; radical evil; the haunting of philosophy; and the possibility of a philosophical religion.

“…Wirth’s promise to illuminate Schelling’s conception of ‘the conspiracy of life’ is an important one not only for those interested in recovering lost moments of the German Idealist tradition, but also for those wishing to engage with a significant account of artistic production.” — British Journal of Aesthetics

"This is one of the very few significant studies of Schelling published in English during the last fifteen years. It is especially timely and theoretically imaginative, an important contribution to philosophical and religious thought generally, as well as specifically to knowledge of Schelling and nineteenth-century German thought." — Charles E. Scott, author of The Lives of Things

Jason M. Wirth is Associate Professor and Chair of Philosophy, Communications, and Fine Arts at Oglethorpe University. He previously translated and wrote the introduction to Schelling's The Ages of the World for SUNY Press.
