Although 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. The 14 essays in this engaging volume bring Schelling in tune with such luminaries as Heidegger, Derrida, Bataille, Foucault, Deleuze, Levinas, and Irigaray and situate him squarely in the center of current themes and discussions in such topics as ethical alterity (the other), deep ecology and the question of nature, the relation of aesthetics to nature, the crisis of truth, the possibility of non-dialectical philosophy, and the possibility of a philosophical religion. Established scholars and newer voices cast light on Schelling and German Idealism.

Contributors are Patrick Burke, Theodore D. George, Eiko Hanaoka, David Farrell Krell, Joseph P. Lawrence, Benjamin S. Pryor, Stephen David Ross, Marcia SA Cavalcante Schuback, F. Scott Scribner, Fiona Steinkamp, Martin Wallen, Peter Warnek, Jason M. Wirth, and Slavoj Zizek.

For too long Schelling's philosophy has been seen as no more than a transition from the philosophies of Kant and Fichte to that of Hegel. In recent years, however, Schelling's philosophy has begun to be recognized as worthy of study in its own right. . . . [T]his volume of 14 essays, edited by Wirth (Oglethorpe Univ.), constitutes a crucial further step in establishing the importance and contemporary relevance of Schelling's philosophy.September 2005--Choice
