This is an interdisciplinary study, connecting philosophy and religion. Beach is at home in both domains of analysis and argument. He situates Schelling s endeavor in a clearly articulated matrix of systematic positions. Though he is rightly critical of Schelling s accomplishments, both in terms of religion and philosophy, he manifests a good deal of sympathy for that thinker s project. Michael G. Vater, Marquette University
This book makes a significant contribution to the literature on Schelling. The insights into this period of his thought are fascinating. The emphasis on mythology is especially timely, in light of the re-awakened interest in mythology as appropriate subject matter for philosophical research. The author himself is quite clearly knowledgeable, learned, authoritative, and appropriately critical regarding the excesses and inadequacies of Schelling s thought, while remaining appreciative of the philosopher s independence and creative originality. The book will appeal to a wide audience of philosophers and historians of religion; it is clearly and competently written. George R. Lucas, Jr., Clemson University"
