  Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Schelling's self-confidence had involved him in a series of disputes and quarrels at Jena, the details of which are important only as illustrations of the evil qualities in Schelling's nature which deface much of his philosophic work.
Schelling was prematurely thrust into the position of a foremort productive thinker; and when the lengthened period of quiet meditation was at last forced upon him there unfortunately lay before him a system which achieved what had dimly been involved in his ardent and impetuous desires.
Schelling had neither the strength of thinking nor the acquired knowledge necessary to hold the balance between the abstract treatment of cosmological notions and the concrete researches of special science.

The enmity of his old foe, HEG Paulus, sharpened by Schelling's apparent success, led to the surreptitious publication of a verbatim report of the lectures on the philosophy of revelation, and, as Schelling did not succeed in obtaining legal condemnation and suppression of this piracy, he in 1845 ceased the delivery of any public courses.
Schelling was prematurely thrust into the position of a foremost productive thinker; and when the lengthened period of quiet meditation was at last forced upon him, there unfortunately lay before him a system which achieved what had dimly been involved in his ardent and impetuous desires.
But Schelling did not merely borrow, he had genuine philosophic spirit and no small measure of philosophic insight, and under all the differences of exposition which seem to constitute so many differing systems, there is one and the same philosophic effort and spirit.

 Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling
Schelling claims, in the wake of Fichte, that the resistance of the noumenal realm to theoretical knowledge results from the fact that ‘the [practical] act [of the absolute I] via which all limitation is posited, as condition of all consciousness, does not itself come to consciousness’.
Schelling starts to confront the idea that the reconciliation of freedom and necessity that had been sought by Kant in the acknowledgement of the necessity of the law, and which was the aim of German Idealism's attempt to reconcile mind and nature, might be intrinsically unattainable.
Schelling is, then, one of the first philosophers seriously to begin the destruction of the model of metaphysics based on the idea of representation, a destruction which can be seen as one of the key aspects of modern philosophy from Heidegger to the later Wittgenstein and beyond.

 Schelling's System of Transcendental Idealism
Thus, Schelling’s transcendental idealism affirms that a transcendental unity of the self and nature, of subject and object, of the conscious and the unconscious is a condition for knowledge.
Schelling argues that, if the conscious activity which is expressed in the will is identical to the unconscious activity which produces the world, then the problem of whether our perceptions conform to the world, or whether the world conforms to our perceptions, is resolved.
Schelling says that, for the self to oppose an object to itself, inner sense must be intuited as time, and outer sense must be intuited as space.

Schelling queers the same figure by requiring the feminized real to play several roles: as the living fundament and source of actualization, she is richly potent, and thus antithetical to what Hegel makes of her.
Schelling puts to us that modern European philosophy is constructed through a fiercely exclusionary mechanism, so that idealism invents its integrity not only in opposition to the alterity of the "real" but also by rendering the "real" as insignificant to the work of philosophy.
Schelling's philosophy is itself never entirely free of the risk of this sort of symmetrical inversion, especially in the later work, organized as it is around oppositions of "positive" and "negative" that make such a substitution—which we could call "Hegelian"—all but irresistible.

 Friedrich Von Schelling
Schelling indicates that the lower faculties of the artist’s mind, such as the memory and consciousness, have conceptions of the details of those moments in his experiences, and his ideas of those experiences are infinite within themselves, hence the actual product has many facets to it on the reflection of the individual’s experiences.
Schelling’s reconciliation of opposite forces becomes theoretical in the literary philosophy of Coleridge’s view in the “perfection of the poet.” For example, the passage on “what is poetry” reveals the Schellingian ideal of the self and the synthesis of the contradictions of the two activities of the poet:
Schelling’s ideals of the character of the artist is in Coleridge’s words, because his poems describe the phenomenon of his reflection of his life.

 Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi (January 25, 1743 - March 10, 1819), was a German philosopher who made his mark on philosophy by coining the term nihilism and promoting it as the prime fault of Enlightenment thought and Kantianism.
In 1811 appeared his last philosophic work, directed against Friedrich Schelling specially (Von den göttlichen Dingen und ihrer Offenbarung), the first part of which, a review of the Wandsbecker Bote, had been written in 1798.
A bitter reply from Schelling was left without answer by Jacobi, but gave rise to an animated controversy in which Fries and Baader took prominent part.

Friedrich Schelling, a German idealist philosopher once known as the "poet of the transcendental movement," has been held to be the most influential of the post-Kantian thinkers.
There was, however, in Schelling something that recalled the ideal side of Plato, more that suggested Plotinus, the neo-Platonists and Alexandrines, a mystical pantheistic quality that mingled well with the general elements of Idealism, and gave atmosphere, as it were, to the tender feeling of Jacobi and the heroic will of Fichte.
Schelling was Fichte's disciple, filled his vacant chair in Jena in 1798, and took his philosophical departure from certain of his positions.

Criticism and dogmatism unite, writes Schelling, in their demand for an "object of action," in their demand "for the action by which the absolute is realized," the free act by which subject and object, pure and practical reason, are made one ("Philosophical Letters" 190-91).
Indeed, Schelling’s abrupt designation of art as the one region in which this possibility can be preserved has put reason on the defensive, highlighting its failings rather than celebrating its capacities.
Schelling's subsequent discussion of Greek tragedy has been viewed as the most important contribution of the Philosophical Letters, often to the point that the passage is read as a complete doctrine in its own right, in isolation from the rest of the work.

 Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In his “Difference” essay Hegel had argued that Schelling's approach succeeded where Fichte's failed in the project of systematising and thereby completing Kant's transcendental idealism, and on the basis of this type of advocacy was dogged for many years by the reputation of being a “mere” follower of Schelling (who was five years his junior).
Schelling, who had left Jena in 1803, interpreted a barbed criticism in the Phenomenology's preface as aimed at him, and their friendship abruptly ended.
After Hegel's death, Schelling, whose reputation had long since been eclipsed by that of Hegel, was invited to take up the chair at Berlin, reputedly because the government of the day had wanted to counter the influence that Hegelian philosophy had developed among a generation of students.
