The Genesis of Neo-Kantianism, 1796-1880

Chapter 11 discusses the neo-Kantian reception of Darwinism, which rose to power in Germany simultaneously with the neo-Kantian movement. It focuses first upon three figures who were especially important in forming the neo-Kantian attitude towards Darwinism: Lange, Meyer and Liebmann. A final section treats the neo-Kantian critique of Ernst Haeckel, the Darwinian apologist, as it appears in the writings of Friedrich Paulsen and Erich Adickes.

Keywords:   Darwinism, Ernst Haeckel, origin of species, evolution, geneology, teleology, mechanism, materialism
