Product Description


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.

Brilliant 18 April 2010
By Steiner - Published on Amazon.com
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.
