Call for Papers: “Hölderlin, Hegel and the Dissonances of Philosophy”

Friedrich Hölderlin is undoubtedly a key figure in western literature and the reception and interpretation of his works has acquired extreme significance already in the first half of the last century. Based on the monumental philological work of Norbert von Hellingrath, the contributions from Walter Benjamin, Martin Heidegger, Peter Szondi, Theodor Adorno, Maurice Blanchot and Jean Beaufret – to name but a few – have each illuminated the role Hölderlin played within contemporary thought. Less pioneering, yet more systematically, from 1960 on a vigorous effort took place, aiming at outlining the philosophical significance of Hölderlin’s work and influence regarding the genesis and contextual comprehension of his contemporaries. Although Ernst Cassirer had already in 1917/18 highlighted Hölderlin’s special and central part within German Idealism, it was only after the discovery of the fragment Judgement and Being (1795) – which Beissner edited in 1961 – that Hölderlin’s image as a philosopher came to reorganize the way in which classic German philosophy was understood, with special emphasis to young Hegel’s intellectual development. From then on, several interpreters explored the premise according to which it would have been in view of the contact with the so-called Homburg’s philosophical circle that Hegel came to leave the Kantian paradigm behind, heading for a Vereinigungsphilosophie.

This premise founded itself as the program of constellational research (Konstellationsforschung) developed, particularly through the contributions of Dieter Henrich, Hannelore Hegel, Otto Pöggeler, Christoph Jamme, Violetta Waibel, among others. Departing from a wide historical and philosophical array, this interpretative method searched to comprehend the intellectual deeds of a generation situated between the Critique of pure Reason and the Phenomenology of Spirit, searching to map out particular theoretical constellations, groupings of poets, philosophers, politicians and artists debating either publicly in the various intellectual journals of the time, or privately through letters or meetings.

On the wake with such efforts, the critical apparatus and the new established dating methods accompanying the recent critical-philological edition of the works Hegel elaborated precisely at the time of the circle of Homburg,that is, at the volume Frühe Schriften II of the Historisch-Kritische Ausgabe; in like measure, the critical edition of the works of Fichte and Schelling, together with the publication of numerous monographs concerning unpublished material from Jakob Zwilling, Isaac von Sinclair and others, which were all but too long entirely unknown; all of this invite us all to a joint effort aiming at reconsidering the impact of the work and influence of Hölderlin within classic German philosophy.

            The intention of this edition of the Revista Eletrônica Estudos Hegelianos is thus to make room for the several reading perspectives regarding Hölderlin, his relation with classic German philosophy and with Hegel’s philosophy in particular.
