Julius Frauenstädt

Julius Frauenstädt

Apostle and Critic

(p.67) 5 Julius Frauenstädt

Frederick C. Beiser

Oxford University Press

This chapter is a treatment of Schopenhauer’s foremost disciple and apostle, Julius Frauenstӓdt. It examines his conversion to Schopenhauer’s philosophy, which did not take place suddenly as so often described in secondary literature. Frauenstӓdt did not become an apostle overnight but only after many years. The great attraction of Schopenhauer’s philosophy to Frauenstӓdt is that it was a form of religion without theism. There is also an account of Frauenstӓdt’s promotional activities on behalf of Schopenhauer, i.e. his participation in the materialism controversy, his editorial activities, and the important role this had for Schopenhauer’s reception. There is a discussion of Frauenstӓdt’s interpretation of Schopenhauer, which is still of value today.

Keywords:   Julius Frauenstӓdt, materialism, Hegelianism, pantheism, Schopenhauer
