Holderlin'S Philosophy of Nature, Hardback Book

Holderlin'S Philosophy of Nature Hardback

Edited by Rochelle Tobias

Part of the New Perspectives in Ontology series



In our age of climate change, the work of the decidedly philosophical poet Friedrich Hoelderlin has gained renewed urgency with its emphasis on the forces of nature that produce life and at the same time threaten to devour it.

At the heart of his work lies an understanding of nature and the role that consciousness plays within it.

This responds to, but also revises, the concerns of 18th and 19th-century philosophy of nature. This collection of 15 essays by distinguished international scholars reconsiders what his work reveals about the impulses toward form and formlessness in nature and the role that poetry plays in creating Holderlin's 'harmonious opposition'.

The collection shows that Hoelderlin anticipates many of the concerns that motivate contemporary environmental thinking.
