German Idealism: Contemporary Perspectives

German Idealism: Contemporary Perspectives
by Espen Hammer

# Hardcover: 339 pages
# Publisher: Routledge; 1 edition (September 7, 2007)

German Idealism is one of the most important movements in the history of
philosophy. It is also increasingly acknowledged to contain the seeds of many
current philosophical issues and debates. This outstanding collection of specially
commissioned chapters examines German idealism from several angles
and assesses the renewed interest in the subject from a wide range of fields.
Including discussions of the key representatives of German idealism such as
Kant, Fichte and Hegel, it is structured in clear sections dealing with:
 the legacy of Hegel’s philosophy
 Brandom and Hegel
 recognition and agency
 autonomy and nature
 the philosophy of German romanticism
Amongst other important topics, German Idealism: Contemporary Perspectives
addresses the debates surrounding the metaphysical and epistemological legacy
of German idealism; its importance for understanding recent debates in moral
and political thought; its appropriation in recent theories of language and the
relationship between mind and world; and how German idealism affected subsequent
movements such as romanticism, pragmatism, and critical theory.
