--David Ferris, Yale UniversityThree seminal philosophical texts by F. W. J. Schelling, arguably the most complex representations of German Idealism, are clearly presented here for the first time in English. Included are Schellings Treatise Explicatory of the Idealism in the Science of Knowledge, System of Philosophy in General and Stuttgart Seminars (1810).

Of these texts, the Treatise constitutes the most comprehensive critical reading of Kant and Fichte by a contemporary thinker and, as a result, proved seminal to Samuel Taylor Coleridges efforts at interconnecting English Romanticism and German speculative thought. Extending his early critique of subjectivity, Schellings System of Philosophy in General and his Stuttgart Seminars launch a far more radical inquiry into the notion of identity, a term which for Schelling, increasingly reveals the contingent nature and inescapable limitations of theoretical practice.An extensive critical introduction relates Schellings work both to his philosophical contemporaries (Kant, Fichte, and Hegel) as well as to the contemporary debates about Theory in the humanities.

The book includes extensive annotations of each translated text, an excursus on Schelling and Coleridge, a comprehensive multi-lingual bibliography, and a glossary.
