Summary

Philosophical debate about freedom has begun to move away in some areas from the analytical concentration on the problem of how to locate freedom in a natural world governed by universal determinism. The dialectic of Enlightenment results when freedom in modernity becomes the attempt to escape from or overcome the ground, rather than becoming aware of the need to come to terms with the limits of what human freedom, qua liberation from the ground, can achieve. It is the way in which the music takes us beyond the negativity in which it is grounded, without seeking just to escape from it, that is essential to understanding how freedom relates to nature in F.W.J. Schelling and Adorno. Schelling arrives at his most significant reflections on freedom and nature, which begin with the essay On the Essence of Human Freedom of 1809 to reconcile freedom with natural and historical necessity.
