Freiheit / Freedom
“Freedom” is the central theme of classical German philosophy. Kant’s theory of freedom as a function of autonomy provided the first theoretical framework that expressed the political turn in self-understanding emerging from the French Revolution. For champions of philosophy who came after Kant, “freedom” became a fundamental element in their philosophical systems. Volume 9 of the Internationalen Jahrbuchs des Deutschen Idealismus/International Yearbook of German Idealism addresses different interpretations of the notion of freedom that were put forward in Kant’s aftermath. It also demonstrates the degree to which the concept of freedom continues to be of current relevance in our times.
