Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Explores Schelling’s Essay on Human Freedom, focusing on the themes of freedom, evil, and love, and the relationship between his ideas and those of Plato and Kant.

With clarity and liveliness, Bernard Freydberg explores the major themes treated in Schelling’s final public work: freedom, imagination, the nature of God, indifference, and love. Freydberg also examines Schelling’s engagement with philosophy’s history, including the relationship between his ideas and those of Plato and Kant, his oracular and mythical languages, and his relevance to contemporary thought.

“…provides a fresh reading of Schelling’s notoriously difficult masterpiece. What sets this book apart is how the author reveals Schelling’s text to be an engagement with the history of philosophy, especially Plato and Kant.” — Symposium

“Freydberg aims to demonstrate the historical foundation of Schelling’s work as well as its relevance, even importance, in contemporary philosophy … In many ways provocative as its object of study, Freydberg’s volume will encourage readers to delve further into this area, whether it is to learn more about Schelling or to investigate Freydberg’s interpretations.” — German Studies Review

“Freydberg argues that Schelling brings together Platonic myth with Kantian critique in a way that infuses reason with erotic passion. What is most impressive about the book is that Freydberg writes with passion and force and provides insights that are so vivid as to immediately evoke a sense of the mythical and the archaic.” — Joseph P. Lawrence, College of the Holy Cross

“Freydberg introduces a refreshingly deep understanding of Plato’s philosophy to his discussion of Schelling and Kant, making a brilliant case for the historical continuity of essential philosophic problems.” — Bruce Matthews, translator of Schelling’s The Grounding of Positive Philosophy: The Berlin Lectures

Bernard Freydberg is Research Professor of Philosophy at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey. He is the author of several books, including Imagination in Kant’s Critique of Practical Reason and Provocative Form in Plato, Kant, Nietzsche (and Others).
