Sample text

In contrast to Zöller, Charles Larmore and Andrew Bowie are both concerned with the early German Romantics in particular. Despite the different focus that they have, both Larmore and Bowie, like Zöller, refer to a departure from classical German idealism in terms of an acknowledgment that the Absolute “eludes” the grasp of reason. Larmore is interested in Hölderlin and Novalis’ critique of Fichte, so he is interested in the early Fichte, the same Fichte that Schlegel critiques. 31 His analysis clears space for a deeper understanding of the epistemically valuable aesthetic insights of the early German Romantics.

It is not my purpose in this book to show that Schlegel’s philosophical project was infallible but rather to show that, right or wrong, Schlegel did have philosophical views. The worth of Schlegel’s philosophy can only begin to be properly assessed after it is excavated from the forbidding surface of a tradition that buried it long ago. This page intentionally left blank. Chapter One Finding Room for the Romantics between Kant and Hegel ማሜምሞ P hilosophers have frequently modeled their work on the mathematical or natural sciences and distanced themselves from anything literary.

Frank’s Romantic Realists versus Beiser’s Romantic Idealists Like Bowie, Larmore, Pinkard, and Zöller, Manfred Frank traces classical German Idealism to its articulation by Hegel that consciousness is a selfsufficient phenomenon, one that is able to make the presuppositions of its existence comprehensible by its own means. 39 Frank offers the following (admittedly ad hoc) definition of early German Romanticism: The thought of Hölderlin and that of Hardenberg (Novalis) and Schlegel cannot be assimilated to the mainstream of so-called German idealism, although these philosophers developed their thought in close cooperation with the principle figures of German idealism, Fichte and Schelling (Hegel, a late-comer to free speculation, played at that time only a passive role).
