Dr Matt Segall – Schelling and the Return of Organic Science

Dr Matt Segall – Schelling and the Return of Organic Science


Why did the mechanistic world view come to dominate modern consciousness?

 

Though usually remembered as a German Idealist, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling (1775-1854) was also a pioneering philosopher of nature. Indeed, it is his resistance to the idealistic overreach of some of his contemporaries that makes his approach unique and of enduring relevance for our own time. At the turn of the 19th century, he attempted to integrate the then new paradigm natural sciences of his own day with the moral, aesthetic, and epistemic presuppositions of human self-consciousness into an organic, evolutionary cosmology. His work represents an alternative to the mechanistic world view that has only grown more viable in light of post-classical revolutions in physics and the rise of the sciences of complexity.
