Chapter 7 discusses the early philosophical works and development of Otto Liebmann. It focuses upon the contents and motives behind his early Kant und die Epigonen and his early critique of Schopenhauer. I attempt to rescue Liebmann’s reputation from Klaus Christian Köhnke’s severe criticisms. Liebmann is shown to be a classic 19th-century German liberal rather than a proto-national-socialist. Liebmann is treated as a crucial figure in the neo-Kantian critique of positivism and in the development of a non-psychological interpretation of Kant.

Keywords:   Kant und die Epigonen, Back to Kant, thing-in-itself, positivism, transcendent, immanent philosophy, non-Euclidean geometry
