Late German Idealism

Chapter 3 is a discussion of the context and content of Trendelenburg’s Logische Untersuchungen, his main work on logic and metaphysics. The focus here is upon Trendelenburg’s conception of philosophy and the meaning of his “organic worldview”. There is also a discussion about Trendelenburg’s metaphysics of motion, what motion meant for Trendelenburg and why he gave it such great importance. One section is devoted to Trendelenburg’s defense of teleology, which was crucial for supporting his organic worldview; another section considers the meaning of idealism and realism in Trendelenburg’s philosophy. A final section treats Trendelenburg’s critique of Hegel.

Keywords:   Organic worldview, motion, idealism, realism, dialectic
