Myth and Melancholia: Schelling on Aesthetic Autonomy
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-2968-4867

Abstract [en]

This paper will seek to examine Schelling’s philosophy of art, in particular in how it develops between his Naturphilosophie of the System (1800) and his 1840s lectures on positive philosophy. Schelling’s philosophy is widely misunderstood, marginalized in a syntactic footnote of the journey from Kant to Hegel, but his philosophy of art is even less fully comprehended. By showing how Schelling breaks from Kant in the late 1790s and early 1800s, this paper will reposition him at the forefront of the aesthetic debates of the German idealists. Schelling’s theory of art, based upon a cultural and historical reconsideration of the Bewusstlosigkeit prior to the work of art as such, focuses more and more on the complex historical and social relationships between myth, art and society, and in so doing compares with the work of two key later German philosophers of art, Benjamin and Heidegger.
