Essai sur l'anthropologie schellingienne



The determination of the major topics in Schelling's anthropology (will, «essencification» and the resurrection of the body) provides a valuable indicator in the turbulent course of a philosophy in the process of becoming. The first anthropological approach (1794-1806) is dominated by the suppression of the problem of finitude in the effort of the philosophical conscience in order to attain the absolute point of view, the intuition of the infinite in the finite. The Stuttgart Conferences (1810) mark a break vis-à-vis this first period. The desire to leave the eternitary site of the first philosophy is translated in anthropology by the dialectical readoption of the topic of limitation and of death. The death of the other, in the dialogue Clara, reveals the domination presented from the exterior on the interior, a spark of freedom retained in all things, which bears witness to the openness of all beings to a superior dimension which is at present repressed. This openness is, in man, the possible place of a decision for the absolute priority of All Other. (Transl, by J. Dudley).
