Abstract and Keywords

This Handbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the philosophy of nineteenth-century Germany that will be helpful to readers of very different sorts, all the way from laymen to undergraduates to experts. The Editors’ Introduction outlines the key themes of the volume, and introduces the structure of the volume and the chapters contained within. As described here, the volume is divided into four parts. The first part is on individual philosophers, including Fichte, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche. The second part looks at key philosophical movements: Idealism, Romanticism, Neo-Kantianism, and Existentialism; the third part engages with different areas of philosophy that received particular attention at this time, including philosophy of nature and of science, philosophy of mind and language, the philosophy of education, and the relationship between philosophy and science, or Wissenschaft. The fourth part discusses central philosophical topics, from skepticism to materialism, from dialectics to ideas of historical and cultural Otherness, and from the reception of antiquity to atheism.

Keywords: German philosophy, philosophers, Idealism, Romanticism, neo-Kantianism, Existentialism, Fichte, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, nineteenth century
