Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on several ‘post-Kantians’ who were active between roughly the late 1780s and late 1880s, and whose views on ethics are of continuing interest in the early twenty-first century. These include Jacobi, Schiller, Friedrich Schlegel, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche. The era under discussion begins historically with the French Revolution and the initial public assimilation of the Kantian philosophy, and ends when the Second German Empire succeeded in establishing itself and neo-Kantianism was beginning to consolidate its hold on academic philosophy.

Keywords: ethics, Kant, Jacobi, Schiller, Friedrich Schlegel, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche
