Hans Christian Ørsted

Dan C. Christensen

Oxford University Press

First, Ørsted's ambition to form a school of disciples is described. The outcome of this ambition is assessed by looking at his relationships with Hansteen, Zeise, and C. Hauch. Second, the close cooperation between Anders and Hans Christian around their reflections on Kantian philosophy is delineated. In 1811 Anders delivered a lecture to the Scandinavian Literary Society ‘On the Boundaries between Theory and Practice in Moral Philosophy’, while Hans Christian presented the ideas of what was to become his major scientific work to the Royal Danish Society. Their papers show the fruitfulness of their working together on Kantian epistemology as brought to bear on moral philosophy (Anders's reformulation of the categorical imperative) and natural philosophy (Hans Christian's ‘Introduction to General Physics’).

Keywords:   Ørsted's disciples, Hansteen, Zeise, C. Hauch, cooperation between the Ørsted brothers, Anders's reformulation of Kant's categorical imperative, Hans Christian's Introduction to General Physics
