A Short Note on Revelation and Critique of Reason in Schelling’s Late Philosophy


Reason in Schelling's Philosophie der Offenbarung (1832) is haunted less by "transcendental illusions", the object of Kant's First Critique, than by the illusion of immanence. This illusion represents the adverse side of the enlightened reason's demand for autonomy, and makes reason the old accomplice of mythology. The demand for autonomy expresses both an anxiety of the basis of reason, the "hypokeimenon", and it perpetuates reason's existential impotence. With revelation reason finally lets go of mythology. Revelation was finalized with the event of Christ, since this event exposed the conditions of any possible revelation. While mythology faithfully reported internal changes as facts of a natural consciousness, revelation invents the autonomy of the external, historical fact. The philosophy of revelation equals what Schelling termed "historical philosophy".
