Schmid, Jelscha: The methods of metaphilosophy
Kant, Maimon, and Schelling on how to philosophize about philosophy
"Jelscha Schmid's book not only sheds light on the enigmatic transition from Kant's philosophy to German idealism, but also opens up several avenues for further research."
On the basis of an examination of Kant's, Maimon's, and Schelling's metaphilosophies, this book investigates how, starting from Kant's diagnosis of a "groping metaphysics", a philosophical research program develops whose goal is to elucidate the nature and method of philosophy itself. Uniting their projects is the thesis that philosophy must begin with an investigation of its own nature, and that this investigation, because of its special object, must be accompanied by a reflection on its method. To this end, their methods are discussed on the assumption that they arise from a particular engagement with the theories and practices of the 18th century sciences. Finally, this discussion provides the basis for showing in what ways philosophical experiments, fictions, or models offer methodological solutions to the problem of developing a scientific metaphysics.
