Product description

Review

"'Intriguing and ambitious... Philosophies of Nature After Schelling sets a new standard for Schelling scholarship. More than this, it is an important work of philosophy in its own right.' Radical Philosophy 'Philosophies of Nature after Schelling is an important, indeed a groundbreaking work.' --Joseph P. Lawrence, College of the Holy Cross - for Notre Dame Philosophy Review"

Synopsis

This book offers a lucid and crucial account of Schelling's major works in the philosophy of nature, now available in paperback.'The whole of modern European philosophy', wrote F.W.J. Schelling in 1809, 'has this common deficiency - that nature does not exist for it.' Despite repeated echoes of Schelling's assessment throughout the natural sciences, and despite the philosophy of nature recently proposed but not completed by Gilles Deleuze, "Philosophies of Nature After Schelling" argues that Schelling's verdict remains accurate two hundred years later. Presenting a lucid account of Schelling's major works in the philosophy of nature alongside those of his scientific contemporaries who pursued and furthered that work, this book does not simply aim to present Schelling's extravagant 'speculative physics' as an historical episode. Rather, Schelling's programme is presented as a viable and necessary corrective both to the rejection of metaphysics and the correlative 'antiphysics' at the ethical heart of contemporary philosophy.The series Editor Keith Ansell-Pearson, University of Warwick, and Consultant Board Eric Alliez, Richard Beardsworth, Howard Caygill, Gary Genosko, Elisabeth Grosz, Michael Hardt, Diane Morgan, John Mullarkey, Paul Pattion, Stanley Shotak, Isabelle Stengers, James Williams, David Wood Transversals explores the most exciting collisions within contemporary thought, as philosophy encounters nature, materiality, time, technology, science, culture, politics, art and everyday life.

The series aims to present work that is both theoretically innovative and challenging, while retaining a commitment to rigor and clarity and to the power and precision of thought.
