(p.313) Epilogue
Late German Idealism

Frederick C. Beiser

Oxford University Press

This chapter is an attempt to appraise Lotze’s achievement. While Lotze’s critique of naturalism and materialism was successful in at least questioning these predominant worldviews, his own attempt to create a metaphysics for the new scientific age was less successful, resting on an ungrounded neo-romantic metaphysics of love. Yet Lotze was ahead of his time in attempting to forge a general worldview uniting the realms of normativity and nature, validity and existence.

Keywords:   Value, validity, intentionality, normativity, teleology
