Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling, German philosopher, born on January 27, 1775 in Leonberg near Stuttgart, who died on August 20, 1854 in Bad Ragaz in Switzerland.

He was one of the representatives of German idealism in the era of romanticism.
Schelling was educated at the University of Tübingen. He teaches in most major German universities and in 1841, moved to Berlin at the request of King of Prussia, Frederick William IV.

Influenced by Kant and Fichte, he professed a philosophy of nature in his book “System of Transcendental Idealism” published in 1800. This idealism said objective accords to nature a reality equivalent to that of the “me”.

He was then interested in Spinoza and Giordano Bruno and exhibited a philosophy of identity with his book “Bruno: Dialogue on the divine principle and the natural principle of things” published in 1802. He believed that, from nature or mind, none of them were primitive and that both derived from the absolute which includes the objective and subjective.

He wrote “Weltalter” (Ages of the World), metaphysical history of the absolute or god, but which remained unfinished.

He was professor of philosophy at Jena, Munich and Berlin.

Finally, Schelling replaced the absolute by a more personal God in his books “Philosophy of mythology” published in 1842 and “Philosophy of Revelation” published in 1854.

Victor Cousin, a French philosopher was his friend: Schelling wrote a preface for a book of Cousin.
