9780791425763: The Embodied Self: Friedrich Schleiermacher's Solution to Kant's Problem of the Empirical Self (Suny Series in Philosophy)

Schleiermacher presents a viable, systematic approach to self-consciousness that unifies thinking, feeling, and life itself--that reconfigures the whole of human experience. He presents a self capable of generating coherence amidst ethnic conflicts and the environmental crisis.

This book investigates the philosophic notion of self-consciousness found in the work of Immanuel Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Friedrich Ernst Daniel Schleiermacher. Its central focus is on Schleiermacher's Dialektik, a posthumously published series of lectures delivered in Berlin between 1811 and 1831. In these lectures, we find Schleiermacher's most detailed delineation of the two-tiered structure of feeling (Gefuhl) that established him as the father of modern Protestant theology. We also find his solution to the gap between the noumenal and empirical self in Kant's theory of self-consciousness that post-Kantian idealists attempt but failed to resolve. Schleiermacher correctly foresaw the nihilistic end to which the philosophical tradition of speculative self-consciousness would lead.

About the Author:

Thandeka is Assistant Professor, Department of Religion, Williams College. The name "Thandeka" was given to her by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1984.

Review:

What I like most about this book is its presentation and elaboration of Schleiermacher s lectures on dialectics, which is probably the most important untranslated material in fundamental philosophy of nineteenth-century European thought. Previous English accounts have not brought out the contemporary impact of this work.
The topic is certainly important since it addresses basic issues that arise out of the world of Kant, the most influential philosopher of the modern world. The author s view that Kant loses the unity of human selfhood and that Schleiermacher viably meets this problem with his analysis of the philosophical ingredients of knowing and being locates the book in a prominent area of continuing interest. Jack Verheyden, The Claremont Graduate School"
