Transformation of the Self in the thought of Schleiermacher

Jacqueline Mariña (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines Schleiermacher's vision of how human nature is to be ensouled through reason. The focus is on Schleiermacher's positive conception and valuation of embodied, finite individuality as the fundamental building block of community. The chapter provides an analysis of Schleiermacher's understanding of embodied individuality, the finite and perspectival character of all human knowledge that issues from such a standpoint, and the character of community, established through dialogue, as that through which finite standpoints can be enlarged to include the perspective of others and of other groups. For Schleiermacher, it is through the establishment of community that human nature is ensouled.

Keywords:   individuality, embodiment, finitude, standpoint, dialogue, perspectival character of knowledge, reason
