Chapter 2 discusses the early philosophical development of J.F. Herbart, the years in which he turns away from Fichte and towards a neo-Kantian metaphysics. It focuses upon Herbart’s growing disillusionment with Fichte’s philosophy and his development of his own metaphysics in the 1808 Hauptpunkte der Metaphysik. Herbart is portrayed as a neo-Kantian philosopher true to Kant’s dualisms and the main principles of his transcendental idealism; his famous “realism” is understood to be consistent with those principles and not a move away from Kant.

Keywords:   realism, ego, transcendental idealism, method of relations, being, pluralism
