Liidge, the ethical act might merely seem to be 60 MYSTICISM AND GUILT-CONSCIOUSNESS five. The Philosuphy fJj Natuu and lrrationalism the entire results of the philosophy of nature to this point mentioned drawback the main of id and its improvement. Schelling used to be simply conscious of this element [of nature]; however, it is important for the historian to carry the other point into view, for it really is this very element that produced the turning aspect in Schelling's philosophy: the transition to irrationalism. In what follows, it shall develop into transparent how a lot this step was once an important, even supposing for a very long time hidden, final result of the philosophy of nature. It was once one of many easy rules of the philosophy of nature that nature can produce not anything except its absolute task is constantly, advert i•ifirzilum, retarded. "It is unthinkable lhat the evolution of nature happens with final velocity, and hence turns into an item of [philosophical] contemplation with out an unique payment upon its productiveness" (3:287). yet for the reason that nature is absolute productiveness, the gmund of this fee opposed to it can't lie open air of it. in spite of the fact that, if it lies inside it, then it ceases to be natural identification; it turns into polarity. "The confident impulse has to be adverse by way of one other, because it have been, anti-productive impulse, now not because the negating yet because the damaging impulse that's rather against it. The proposal oflimitation in nature as passivity is just conquer whilst the restricting is optimistic, and nature's unique polarity is a clash of actually uppased impulses" . (3:288). either activities are against each other, no longer as ego and nonego, yet as ego and counter-ego. this is often the decisive element during this formula. via Kant's dynamic development o£ topic, the thinker of nature [Schelling] got here to work out that genuine items end up via activities which are particularly antagonistic. To the disciple of[Fichte's] technological know-how of Kn()U! liidge, the ethical act may possibly basically seem to be the improvement OF MYSTICISM sixty one the U! it:hedretl motion of cause; to the thinker of nature, nature's 'product can simply seem to be a made from at:live quandary (3:291). To the ethical thinker, the ego is the seat of aU positing. From this viewpoint, it's incomprehensible how the ego can posit an motion that truly opposes itself The thinker of nature has desire of this genuine competition, and needs to, including the confirmation of nature, verify the a priori incomprehensible, that's, the irrationaL a similar contradiction arises in a teleological deduction of life. moral mysticism can account for real morality through connection with the totally ought-to-be, and during this means deduce the positing of the nonego. it may well assert that morality isn't another way than truly, and that ideal goodness, that's self-contained and loose from all motion, is not anything except nature. l2 The philosophy of nature lacks the potential of this obvious deduction rrom the beginning. If it got down to interpret the entire strategy of nature as a method of morality, it's going to abandon itself.
