Summary

F.W.J. Schelling's lectures on the topic of "the history of modern philosophy" in Munich from the late-1820s to the late-1830s are the points of departure for his critique of Hegel's mature work. According to Schelling, the aim of Hegel's theory of conceptuality is to establish that conceptual determination exhausts the world as an ontological matter. For Hegel, the idea of the world-as-a-whole boils down to the world as a totality of interrelated determinations, whose final status as determinations is holistically determined by their place in the whole that they constitute. It is only by engaging in Negative Philosophy that one can achieve the circumspection and lay the ground for a transition to Positive Philosophy. Schelling's is an odd sort of empiricism, according to which the more one experiences the world the more the world's structure antecedent to thought is discovered through thought to be compatible with thought.
