The Experiential Turn in Eighteenth-Century German Philosophy

Edited By Karin de Boer, Tinca Prunea-Bretonnet

Birçok denemenin derlenmesinden oluşan bu kitap,  on sekizinci yüzyılda, Kant’tan önceki Alman felsefesinin büyük ölçüde Leibniz sonrası rasyonalizm tarafından tanımlandığı ve buna bağlı olarak “duyuların bilişsel işlevine çok değer verilmediği” yönündeki hakim varsayıma meydan okumaktadır.

“Book Description 

This collection of essays challenges the prevailing assumption that eighteenth-century German philosophy prior to Kant was largely defined by post-Leibnizian rationalism and, accordingly, a low esteem of the cognitive function of the senses. It does so by highlighting the various ways in which eighteenth-century German philosophers reconceived the notion and role of experience in their efforts to identify, defend, and contest the contribution of sensibility to disciplines such as metaphysics, theology, the natural sciences, psychology, and aesthetics. Engaging in depth with Tschirnhaus, Wolff, the Wolffians, eclecticism, Popularphilosophie, the Berlin Academy, Tetens, and Kant, its thirteen chapters present a more nuanced understanding of the German reception of British and French ideas and dismiss the prevailing view that German philosophy was largely isolated from European debates. Moreover, the book introduces a number of relatively unknown, but highly relevant philosophers and developments to non-specialized scholars and contributes to a better understanding of the richness and complexity of the German Enlightenment.
