Objective Idealism, Ethics, and Politics

Hosle, Vittorio

Vittorio Hösle, touted as the German philosopher of the coming generation, exhibits his wide range of scholarship in this, his first book published in America.

“Although treating quite different subjects, these essays are linked together by a common philosophical project – the revitalization of the tradition of objective idealism. The conviction that we can have synthetic a priori knowledge, and that this knowledge discovers something that is independent of our mind, is of particular importance for practical philosophy. . . . The position here defended in systematic terms is also seen in the context of a philosophical history of philosophy, namely as a possible synthesis of realism and subjective idealism, of enlightenment and counter-enlightenment, and as the supposition of renewing the humanities tradition.” – from the Preface
