(p.15) 1 What Is Early German Romantic Philosophy?
The Relevance of Romanticism

Manfred Frank

Oxford University Press

According to a general belief, it is a fundamental trait of modern philosophy to have articulated itself as a thinking grounded in the certitude of self-consciousness. Pioneered and launched by Descartes, this thinking is said to have climbed to its height with Kant and, more so, in Fichte’s philosophy. Romanticism has also been interpreted as part of this movement. However, since Dieter Henrich and his students published their investigations of previously unknown philosophical sources, it has become clear that these earlier interpretations are not entirely accurate. This chapter considers the constellation of early romantic philosophy, i.e., what was left out of Henrich’s research; or rather, it summarizes the results of Manfred Frank’s work over the last twenty-five years.

Keywords:   romanticism, skepticism, constellation research, Dieter Henrich, first principles, antifoundationalism, Friedrich Schlegel, Friedrich von Hardenberg (Novalis), Manfred Frank
