By Frederick C. Beiser
Histories of German philosophy within the 19th century as a rule concentrate on its first half—when Hegel, idealism, and Romanticism ruled. against this, the rest of the century, after Hegel's demise, has been quite overlooked since it has been obvious as a interval of stagnation and decline. yet Frederick Beiser argues that the second one 1/2 the century used to be in reality the most progressive classes in glossy philosophy as the nature of philosophy itself was once up for grabs and the very absence of simple task ended in creativity and the beginning of a brand new period. during this cutting edge concise historical past of German philosophy from 1840 to 1900, Beiser focuses no longer on issues or person thinkers yet particularly at the period’s 5 nice debates: the id concern of philosophy, the materialism controversy, the equipment and bounds of heritage, the pessimism controversy, and the Ignorabimusstreit. Schopenhauer and Wilhelm Dilthey play vital 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 girls, Agnes Taubert and Olga Pluemacher, who've been thoroughly forgotten in histories of philosophy. the result's a wide-ranging, unique, and fantastic new account of German philosophy within the severe interval among Hegel and the 20 th century.
