    Along with The Philosophy Of Mythology, this has been the most engaging book I ve read by Schelling and with his essay on human freedom, those three works mark Schelling at his most mature and most original He hasn t lost all of his dependence on Fichte but it isn t as prominent as it was in earlier works Here, as with the essay on human freedom, Schelling shows a little dependence on Jacob Boehme, the Gorlitz mystic While I do like Boehme to a degree, I have some misgivings regarding some of his ideas and specifically the ones Schelling here uses These issues do not take up a lot of the book, so it s not enough to affect my rating His dependence on Boehme isn t all encompassing It s noticeable in various places, but it s clear that Schelling isn t simply regurgitating Boehme s theosophy He definitely has some unique ideas in here I don t know if Schelling may be dependent on Franz von Baader in some of his thought Baader has yet to be translated into English, apart from brief extracts, so I have not been able to research him adequately It is known, however, that Schelling was influenced by Baader, so some dependence is probably a safe bet.This work does fit rather well with the lectures that make up his Philosophy of Mythology, which I was quite impressed with In that work, Schelling investigated the philosophical continuity of revelation through religion and mythology up through Judaism and Christianity In this work, he or less investigates theosophy not in the Blavatskian sense, of course This book really strikes me as being strongly Neo Platonist There is an undercurrent of pantheism, or, at least, panentheism It s not that I support either, but the investigation I thought was so intriguing that I cannot give the book any less than the highest rating It is clear to me why the Russian philosopher Vladimir Solovyov who I am well acquainted with was a follower of Schelling and this work in particular This work does seem to be at least partially what the system of sophiology was based on at least in the case of Solovyov Bulgakov seems to have been circumspect in regards to Schelling but I think Berdyaev probably was influenced by this work This concludes my reading of Schelling for the time being Very good book to end with I would have to say that even though Fichte was the true originator of German Idealism, Schelling certainly applied it in ways that I think were often interesting.

    Excellent discussion of God and nature But to tell the truth, in true science as little as in history are there propositions properly speaking, that is, assertions which are valid in and by themselves or apart from the movement by which they are produced, or which have an unlimited and universal validity What is essential in science is movement deprived of this vital principle, its assertions die like fruit taken from the living tree Propositions which are unconditioned, that is, valid once for all, are antagonistic to the nature of true science, which consists in progress.
