In an obtainable narrative that explains complicated rules in transparent language, Vittorio Hösle lines the evolution of German philosophy and describes its critical impression on different facets of German tradition, together with literature, politics, and science.

Starting with the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart, the publication addresses the philosophical alterations led to by way of Luther's Reformation, after which provides an in depth account of the classical age of German philosophy, together with the paintings of Leibniz and Kant; the increase of a brand new type of humanities in Lessing, Hamann, Herder, and Schiller; the early Romantics; and the Idealists Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel. the subsequent chapters examine the cave in of the German synthesis in Schopenhauer, Feuerbach, Marx, and Nietzsche. Turning to the 20 th century, the publication explores the increase of analytical philosophy in Frege and the Vienna and Berlin circles; the root of the old sciences in Neo-Kantianism and Dilthey; Husserl’s phenomenology and its radical alteration by means of Heidegger; the Nazi philosophers Gehlen and Schmitt; and the most West German philosophers, together with Gadamer, Jonas, and people of the 2 Frankfurt colleges. Arguing that there has been a particular German philosophical culture from the mid-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, the publication closes via interpreting why that culture principally resulted in the many years after international conflict II.
