Park uncovers this debate and recounts the improvement of an exclusionary canon of philosophy within the many years of the overdue eighteenth and early 19th centuries. To what quantity was once this exclusion of Africa and Asia due to the the scientization of philosophy? To what volume was once it due to the racism?

Example text

125 Detailed biographies of philosophers should not be included as these would “injure the unity of the history” and inappropriately connect the actual object of inquiry, philosophy, to the personal histories of the philosophers. 126 As a philosopher practicing history of philosophy, Tennemann had no use for the fanatical precepts put forward by Reinhold and Grohmann. In the introduction to his Geschichte der Philosophie, Tennemann works methodically toward a definition for the “history of the discipline of philosophy”: History in the broad sense is the recounting of past events.

104 Not only do Kant’s words authorize the a priori construction of the history of philosophy; they also prescribe the narrative: Metaphysics was dogmatic; skepticism falsified it; and then true metaphysics was achieved by Kant. 105 Attacks against Kantianism grew more intense in the 1790s. Critics renewed the charge of Humean skepticism even as Kant and Reinhold maintained that Kantian philosophy refuted Hume’s skepticism. Salomon Maimon thought that Kant succeeded in refuting the dogmatism of School Philosophy, but he was not persuaded that Kant succeeded in refuting skepticism.

For them, the purpose of the history of philosophy was to show the strengths and weaknesses of exist- The Kantian School 19 ing systems of philosophy and to demonstrate especially the inherent limitations or defects of systematic philosophy in general. They compared systems of philosophy and allowed themselves to take the best aspects of two or more systems if, in doing so, it should prove useful to their ends. These unnamed opponents of Kantian philosophy were Johann Georg Feder, Christoph Meiners, and Christian Garve, known to the learned German public as “common sense philosophers” and known to today’s historians as Popularphilosophen.
