Three 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 Schelling s Treatise Explicatory of the Idealism in the Science of Knowledge (1797), System of Philosophy in General (1804), 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 Coleridge s efforts at interconnecting English Romanticism and German speculative thought. Extending his early critique of subjectivity, Schelling s 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 Schelling s 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."

This is the first book on Paul Tillich and Judaism, which is a neglected aspect of Tillich’s thought. Tillich’s dialectical and theological history of religion is examined in key primary sources to show how he maintains continuity between Judaism and Christianity. Tillich’s positive theology of Judaism contrasts sharply with the many complex, negative ways in which Judaism is portrayed in Western thought.

Previously considered a way-station on the road to Hegel, F.W.J. von Schelling is today enjoying a renaissance among Continental philosophers and others. These 14 essays bring Schelling in tune with such luminaries as Heidegger, Derrida, Bataille, Foucault, Deleuze, Levinas, and Irigaray and situate him squarely in the centre of current themes.
