Chapter Summary

This chapter explores into the internal influence of the historiographical concept ?system of philosophy? in histories of philosophies after Johann Jacob Brucker. It makes a few observations regarding its ramifications in the historiographies governing history of problems and history of ideas respectively. Many nineteenth-century historians of philosophy turned down Brucker?s Historia critica philosophiae for different reasons-for instance, Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Victor Cousin and Friedrich Ueberweg. Historians of philosophy like Tennemann, Friedrich Ast, Hegel, Cousin, Eduard Zeller, Kuno Fischer and Ueberweg, for instance, uncritically applied the concept ?system of philosophy? in their historiography of philosophy, even though they did not apply it in the axiomatic-deductive form it was originally given by Brucker. In the chapter we have seen how this historiographical concept, often in a modified form, influenced the approach to thinkers like Thales, Plato and Giordano Bruno.

Keywords: Eduard Zeller; Friedrich Ueberweg; Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel; Giordano Bruno; historiographical concept; Johann Jacob Brucker; Kuno Fischer; Plato; Victor Cousin; Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann
