(p.393) 10 Rickert and the Philosophy of Value
The German Historicist Tradition

Frederick C. Beiser

Oxford University Press

This chapter is a close examination of the philosophy of value of Heinrich Rickert (1863–1936). The philosophy of value was an attempt to define and secure an ahistorical realm of values against the threats of naturalism and historicism. It placed values in an “irreal realm,” one independent of mental or physical reality. The chapter discusses Rickert's attempts to explain the meaning of this realm and its relation to reality. It also considers Rickert's early views regarding historical explanation and the limits of naturalism.

Keywords:   Heinrich Rickert, theory of value, irreality, third realm, culture, naturalism, voluntarism, pragmatism, neo‐Kantianism
