Chapter 4 discusses a transitional period in the development of neo-Kantianism, the years from 1840 to 1860, after the end of the early neo-Kantians (Fries, Herbart and Beneke) and before the florescence of neo-Kantianism in the 1860s. It treats several developments: the crisis of philosophy, the materialism controversy, the rivalry with Schopenhauer, and Trendelenburg’s and Lotze’s late idealism. This chapter also examines the early epistemology of Hermann Helmholtz, who was a central figure in the attempt to ally Kant’s philosophy with the emerging natural sciences.

Keywords:   the great pretender, crisis of philosophy, late idealism, materialism controversy, lost tradition, Hermann Helmholtz
