The period around 1800, normally viewed as the high time of philosophical idealism, is also a period of intense debate between idealists and realists – the latter reacting upon the idealists’ ideas, but also developing and forcefully promoting their own position. This form of realism is highly interesting because in many respects it does not coincide with contemporary associations with the term “realism”, and because it allows for a particularly lively insight into the philosophical (and also some theological and aesthetic) debates in the period around 1800. This workshop will present perspectives on realism from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
