  1. Gord Barentsen (2015). Silent Partnerships: Schelling, Jung, and the Romantic Metasubject. Symposium 19 (1):67-79.
    Despite Carl Jung’s stated debts to Kant, Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, this paper articulates a more profound yet silent intellectual partnership between Schelling’s philosophy and analytical psychology. Schelling’s metaphysics navigate the aporias Jung often encounters in his psychology; Jung provides Schelling’s metaphysics with a therapeutics and mode of being in the world. This paper reads the actants’ dynamism in Schelling’s First Outline and the potencies' work of yearning in the 1815 Ages of the World forward to Jungian metapsychology, which thinks Schelling (...)

  2. Joseph Carew (2015). Reading Schelling Psychoanalytically: Žižek on the Ground of Consciousness and Language. Symposium 19 (1):39-51.
    What are the origins of consciousness and language? Why are so many driven to see them as epiphenomenal to a metaphysically more primordial phenomenon when we have good reasons to think they are irreducible to such? Drawing on the work of the Slovenian psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek, and in particular his reading of the German philosopher F.W.J. Schelling, I suggest a provactive but nuanced thesis: that at the basis of human subjectivity there is norhyme or reason for its emergence and to (...)

  3. Iain Hamilton Grant (2015). Everything is Primal Germ or Nothing Is: The Deep Field Logic of Nature. Symposium 19 (1):106-124.
    In Schelling’s “On the Relation between the Real and the Ideal in Nature" , not only does the titular copula bond real and ideal, but it is itself bonded in and by nature. If the copula doesn't merely bond nature and judgment, but bonds the latter to the former as an instance of the nature from which is derives, what relation does the essay's search for nature's primals bear to the universalism of logical law? What, moreover, is the relation of (...)

  4. Bruce Matthews (2015). Schelling in the Anthropocene: A New Mythology of Nature. Symposium 19 (1):94-105.
    I explore how the "synthesis of history and nature" that defines the Anthropocene might signal the advent of the “new mythology” Schelling hoped would emerge from his Naturphilosophie. The epistemological dimension of this new mythology is to be understood through Schelling’s idea of Mitwissenschaft, in which humanity is the essential active agent in the reflexive system of the world. Such an inquiry derives not from a sentimental longing for an enchanted world, but from the impending “annihilation of nature” Schelling foresaw (...)

  5. Jared McGeough (2015). Schelling "After" Bakunin: Idealism, Anarchism, Post-Anarchism. Symposium 19 (1):80-93.
    This essay reexamines aspects of F. W. J. Schelling’s philosophy in the context of the recent resurgence of academic interest in anarchist theory, with emphasis on how Schelling’s thought relates to founding anarchist thinker Mikhail Bakunin. Through an examination of aspects of Schelling’s ontology and his critique of Hegel, I discuss how Bakunin’s objections to Schelling can be tempered, all while providing the framework for a “philosophy of existence” which informs Bakunin’s own departure from a Hegelian “philosophy of essence.” I (...)

  6. Sean J. McGrath (2015). Schelling and the History of the Dissociative Self. Symposium 19 (1):52-66.
    This paper explores the possible therapeutical applications of Schellingian psychological principles. A Schellingian analysis would enable us to retrieve the largely forgotten heritage of Romantic psychiatry, in particular the dissociationist model of the psyche, which was strategically rejected by Freud and somewhat clumsily revised by Jung, but which has its own intelligibility and applicability. Schellingian analysis would be dissociationist rather than repressivist, and would depart from Freud and Jung in being both a metaphysical and a moral therapy. But the open-ended (...)

  7. Lucas M. Possati (2015). Derrida, la ligne et le cercle. De' construction et principe d’analogie. Symposium 19 (1):268-286.
    La question que nous nous proposons de traiter dans cet article concerne le statut de l’événement de la déconstruction en tant qu’image de la raison : Quelle raison trouvons-nous par le biais de la de'construction ? Le geste déconstructeur veut dépasser le logos de la métaphysique occidentale sans le de'passer, manifestant l’impossibilité radicale d’un tel dépassement : peut-on parler donc d’un logos déconstructeur ? La diffe'rance est-elle coupée du logos ou bien est-elle une autre forme de logos ? Quel est (...)

  8. Tilottama Rajan (2015). Evolution and its Resistances: Transferences Between Disciplines in Schelling’s and Hegel’s Systems. Symposium 19 (1):153-175.
    According to Novalis the "encyclopedization" of a field occurs when it is not just fitted into a larger architectonic of knowledge, but also reconfigures this whole. This paper begins with Hegel's encyclopedic ambitions and Schellin's parallel—if less systematic—project in his 1803/4 lectures on the method of academic study. It takes up Schelling's First Outline of a System of the Philosophy of Nature , so as to look at the encyclopedic effects of the life sciences on a philosophy that has inevitably (...)

  10. Joan Steigerwald (2015). Ground and Grounding: The Nature of Things in Schelling’s Philosophy. Symposium 19 (1):176-197.
    This paper examines the notions of ground and grounding across several of Schelling’s works, from the philosophy of nature, through transcendental idealism and identity philosophy, to the Freedom essay and The Ages of the World. It contends that Schelling repeatedly returns to the same problematic, that each attempt to establish a foundation for philosophy is inscribed with the particular and the concrete, so that the work of grounding is also an ungrounding. It reads the different expressions of Schelling’s philosophy against (...)

  11. Tyler Tritten (2015). After Contingency: Toward the Principle of Sufficient Reason as Post Factum. Symposium 19 (1):24-38.
    This essay argues for the contingency of necessity. The thesis is that contingency constitutes the possibility of necessity, which is always subsequent to contingency, only contingent necessity, a mere modality of contingent being. This study posits the contingency of necessity through a reading of Quentin Meillassoux and the late lectures of F. W. J. Schelling. While Meillassoux argues for the necessity of contingency, Schelling seeks to uncover the contingency at the heart of what is necessary. Although the principle of sufficient (...)

  12. Gabriel Trop (2015). The Aesthetics of Schelling’s Naturphilosophie. Symposium 19 (1):140-152.
    This paper investigates the implicit aesthetics of Schelling’s early Naturphilosophie. Within the framework of Naturphilosophie, Schelling naturalizes the categories of the beautiful and the sublime, making not only the purposiveness of the beautiful, but also the disorder and perturbation of the sublime into part of the internal dynamic of nature. A disequilibrium between the transcendental forces of attraction and repulsion conditions all systems of differentiation, thus giving rise to an aesthetics of production inherent within nature that moves throughout the order (...)

  13. John Vanderheide (2015). A Standstill in Desire: Schelling, Nietzsche, Deleuze and the Idea of Eternal Recurrence. Symposium 19 (1):13-23.
    This essay explores the ways in which the idiosyncratic onto-theogony of Friedrich Schelling's 1815 version of The Ages of the World anticipates Gilles Deleuze’s equally idiosyncratic interpretation of Friedrich Nietzsche’s doctrine of eternal recurrence. As I argue, Schelling’s work presents a sophisticated theory of being and time, a complex account of the genesis of actuality from within a differentiated transcendental field, and a reworking of the doctrine of Ideas, all of which together project a conception of reality as eternal recurrence (...)

  14. Daniel Whistler (2015). The New Literalism: Reading After Grant’s Schelling. Symposium 19 (1):125-139.
    In the wake of post-hermeneutic refusals of interpretation in recent continental philosophy, this essay returns to Schelling as a means of understanding what such a renewed reading practice of philosophical fundamentalism might look like. I argue that recent impetus for a Schellingian conception of literalism can be found in Grant’s attack on the metaphorizing tendencies of previous Schelling scholarship, and the ground for such literalism is to be located in the concept of tautegory that Schelling proposes in the Lectures on (...)
