Being in F.W.J. Schelling's Philosophy
Languages of publication
Relying on the philosophy of narrative the author focuses on Schelling's ontology. She presents the question of aestheticism and epistemological empiricism in Kant's philosophy, which means that she begins from the enfeeblement of reason also defined as depotentialisation of the philosophy of the subject. She shows how this topic is treated by Schelling in his System of Transcendental Idealism, and how it is connected with ontological pluralism, or with the conflict of mutually constraining wills, a conflict that tears apart the continuity of rationalistic deduction of a system from the original lack of differentiation between one I and the other. It is determined in the process that the concepts of dogmatic philosophy are derivative, dependent and partial. Such inquiries have been inspired by A. Renaut's: The Era of the Individual, and by the claim that Western metaphysics suffers from a discontinuity. The author also discusses the development of Schelling's thought. She shows how its early version is informed by Plato's Timaeus and finds its most characteristic expression in the philosophy of identity contained in the Philosophy of Arts. Its later version, due to its rich pluralistic and mythological themes can best be interpreted by recourse to the concepts of the philosophy of narrative proposed by M. Maesschalk.
