Filosofia classica tedesca

F. Voßkühler claimed that German idealism represents the "metaphysics of modernity", and we believe that this definition is to be understood in two ways: on the one hand, in the sense of a knowledge that still structures and underpins our way of thinking but also, on the other, in the sense of a knowledge that has been, or has to be, rethought and re-contextualised. This makes it necessary to deal with the thoughts of philosophers such as Fichte and Hegel: understanding not only their solutions, but also their difficulties. Today, this means understanding the margins within which Philosophy can and must rethink its own epistemological status.
