Abstract


Two new translations of Schelling and a classic piece of German Schelling scholarship have appeared in succession in the past three years. In 2018, a translation of Walter Kasper’s seminal 1964 study, The Absolute in History: The Philosophy and Theology of History in Schelling’s Late Philosophy came out. In 2019, Joseph Lawrence’s translation of the 1811 edition of The Ages of the World appeared. And in the spring of this year, a complete translation of the Paulus edition of The Philosophy of Revelation was published by Spring Publications. English readers no longer have any excuses for not knowing what happened to Schelling’s thought after the 1809 Freedom Essay.
