Nature of Philosophy and Philosophy of Nature: Henrich Steffens’ “enhanced” Naturalism
Corvino, Pier Francesco
With one eye on his sources and another on his production, in this contribution we would like to present Henrich Steffens' philosophy as an “enhanced” naturalism. After explaining the meaning of this definition, we will examine some topical places in Steffens' philosophical, political, and psychological-anthropological production. There the naturalistic perspective will prominently emerge, so as to demonstrate how it is central to the author's understanding and unusual with respect to its context. Finally, we will propose some general considerations on the heuristic fruitfulness of Steffens' original point of view.
