By Frederick C. Beiser
Histories of German philosophy within the 19th century more often than not specialize in its first half—when Hegel, idealism, and Romanticism ruled. against this, the rest of the century, after Hegel's loss of life, has been rather ignored since it has been visible as a interval of stagnation and decline. yet Frederick Beiser argues that the second one 1/2 the century used to be in reality some of the most innovative classes in glossy philosophy as the nature of philosophy itself was once up for grabs and the very absence of walk in the park ended in creativity and the beginning of a brand new period. during this leading edge concise historical past of German philosophy from 1840 to 1900, Beiser focuses no longer on topics or person thinkers yet particularly at the period’s 5 nice debates: the id predicament of philosophy, the materialism controversy, the equipment and boundaries of heritage, the pessimism controversy, and the Ignorabimusstreit. Schopenhauer and Wilhelm Dilthey play very important roles in those controversies yet so do many ignored figures, together with Ludwig Büchner, Eugen Dühring, Eduard von Hartmann, Julius Fraunstaedt, Hermann Lotze, Adolf Trendelenburg, and ladies, Agnes Taubert and Olga Pluemacher, who've been thoroughly forgotten in histories of philosophy. the result's a wide-ranging, unique, and brilliant new account of German philosophy within the severe interval among Hegel and the 20 th century.
