Half novella, half philosophy, Clara used to be Schelling's most well liked paintings in the course of his lifetime, and looks right here in English for the 1st time.

This is the 1st English translation of Schelling's novel, probably written after the demise of his first spouse, Caroline, the previous spouse of August Wilhelm Schlegel. even though just a fragment, Clara is still specified. half novella, half philosophical tome, its important subject matter is the relationship among this global and the following. Schelling masterfully weaves jointly his wisdom of animal magnetism, literary innovations, and his doctrine of the potencies to make his philosophy obtainable to all.

Steinkamp addresses the most concerns in regards to the relationship of the work—many commentators have deemed Clara to be a caricature for Schelling's The a long time of the realm or an summary for the 3rd, lacking publication of that work—and presents a quick biography of Schelling with specific emphasis on occasions claimed to play a job within the perception of Clara, comparable to the deaths of either Caroline and her daughter, Auguste. She additionally indicates how passages in Clara are strikingly just like the content material of Schelling’s touching letters mourning Caroline, written to Pauline, the daughter of Caroline’s ally and the lady who might develop into his moment spouse. Clara, strongly inspired by way of the Romantic circulate, is an early representation of Schelling's try and unite his confident and destructive philosophy.

Sample text

Pauline followed him to the grave less than four months later, on 13 December. Karl Friedrich lived just long enough to bring out the collected works and the first single edition of Clara; then he died in 1864, just ten years after his father. WHO IS CLAR A? Because of Schelling’s colorful life and extensive knowledge, accounts differ widely as to why Schelling chose the name “Clara” for one of the central characters in the discussion. Some commentators write as if there is absolutely no controversy; others are more cautious.

I have not indicated these substitutions in the text. FOOTNOTES AND ENDNOTES Adding notes is always a two-edged sword. On the one hand, readers may appreciate having the information; on the other hand footnotes remove the power from readers to claim their own connections and discoveries about the text. Because most people wishing to use this text academically will probably be Schelling scholars, I have not made any attempt to connect Clara to other works of Schelling or, indeed, to other philosophical contexts.

I have already indicated that the “Stuttgart Seminars” are not as similar to Clara as many believe. Likewise, if Schelling was already composing Clara at the time of Philosophie und Religion, it may be useful to compare and contrast that work with Clara and Of Human Freedom. Brown (1996), for instance, has already argued that Philosophie und Religion and Of Human Freedom are not as alike as people have often assumed. If Schelling reworked Clara in this period, a comparison of the three texts may help track Schelling’s progression of thought.
