Schelling, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von

(1775–1854)
   Philosopher.
   Schelling was born in Württemberg, the son of a pastor. He was educated in Tübingen and he subsequently taught at Jena, Würtzburg, Erlangen, Munich and Berlin. A personal friend of Hegel, Fichte and Goethe, he is primarily remembered in Christian circles for his Philosophische Untersuchungen über das Wesen der Menschlichen Freiheit, in which he attempted to reconcile his Christianity with his idealist philosophy. Over the years his position moved from abstract Pantheism to modi- fied neo-Platonism. Influenced by Kant and Boehme, he maintained that consciousness is the only immediate object of knowledge. Many elements of his thought were taken up by later German philosophers.
