In his late philosophy, Schelling develops a new type of philosophy which enters into competition with Hegel's metaphysics. With this, he not only attacks Hegel on the basis of his fundamental theoretical assumptions, but also attempts to outdo him with a new concept of religion. The study examines this, taking at its starting point Schelling's "Philosophy of Mythology".

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sein [Gabriels] Werk gibt dem aufmerksamen Studium der klassischen deutschen Philosophie neue Impulse: Gabriel nimmt in ihm deren Denktradition wieder auf, indem er sie nicht nur als Feld einer antiquarischen Rekonstruktion versteht, sondern in den sachbezogenen philosophischen Diskurs der Gegenwart hineinwirken lässt."Matteo Vincenzo d'Alfonso in: Philosophische Rundschau 1/2011
