  • Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling, later von Schelling, was a German philosopher. Standard histories of philosophy make him the midpoint in the development of German idealism, situating him between Johann Gottlieb Fichte, his mentor in his early years, and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, his former university roommate, early friend, and later rival. Interpreting Schelling's philosophy is regarded as difficult because of its apparently ever-changing nature. Schelling's thought in the large has been neglected, especially in the English-speaking world, as has been his later work on mythology and revelation, much of which remains untranslated. An important factor was the ascendancy of Hegel, whose mature works portray Schelling as a mere footnote in the development of idealism. Schelling's Naturphilosophie also has been attacked by scientists for its analogizing tendency and lack of empirical orientation. However, some 20th-century philosophers such as Martin Heidegger and Slavoj Žižek have shown interest in re-examining Schelling's body of work.

  • Schelling advocated a philosophy that emphasised intuition over reason and placed the highest value on the aesthetic and creative imagination. For Schelling, it was the creative imagination that holds the power to grasp reality. In spite of major changes in his ideas, he remained a champion of Romanticism.
