This is the first book in English to present F. W. J. Schelling (1775-1854) as a major European philosopher in his own right. "Schelling and Modern European Philosophy" surveys the whole of Schelling's philosophical career and lucidly reconstructs his key arguments, drawing from highly complex, often inaccessible and untranslated texts. Andrew Bowie argues that Schelling, usually considered an interesting but eccentric precursor to Hegel, actually offered serious alternatives to Hegel's thinking. Bowie shows that central ideas and conceptual strategies in the work of thinkers as diverse as Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida and Davidson relate closely to Schelling's often misunderstood philosophy. The book demonstrates that Schelling was a crucial transitional figure in the development of modern philosophy.

Industry Reviews

""Schelling and Modern European Philosophy is written with verve, insight and erudition. Let others try, if they can, to follow in its footsteps.." "I know of no other work which provides a more complete and authoritative introduction to Schelling." -Manfred Frank, University of Tubingen--two dots above u "Bowie's treatment of both nineteenth century German thought and of contemporary European and analytic styles of philosophy is consistently lucid. . . . I find the volume admirable in that it is philosophical and argumentative throughout." -Michael Vater, Marquette University "This is a lively and compelling text, which brings a major forgotten' figure of the continental philosophical tradition right into the heart of contemporary debates. It could play an important role in changing the way in which the contours of this tradition are usually mapped in the English-speaking world." -Peter Dews, University of Essex
