Histories of German philosophy within the 19th century normally specialize in its first half—when Hegel, idealism, and Romanticism ruled. against this, the rest of the century, after Hegel's demise, has been particularly ignored since it has been obvious as a interval of stagnation and decline. yet Frederick Beiser argues that the second one half the century was once in reality the most innovative classes in glossy philosophy as the nature of philosophy itself used to be up for grabs and the very absence of simple task ended in creativity and the beginning of a brand new period. during this leading edge concise background of German philosophy from 1840 to 1900, Beiser focuses now not on topics or person thinkers yet really at the period’s 5 nice debates: the id quandary of philosophy, the materialism controversy, the tools and bounds of heritage, the pessimism controversy, and the Ignorabimusstreit. Schopenhauer and Wilhelm Dilthey play vital roles in those controversies yet so do many overlooked 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 unbelievable new account of German philosophy within the serious interval among Hegel and the 20 th century.
