Chapter Summary

The term intellectual intuition is the translation of the German intellektuelle or intellektuale Anschauung. Interestingly, Kant consistently uses the term intellektuelle Anschauung, and so does Fichte. This chapter presents the views of Fichte on intellectual intuition. Like all of Schelling's metaphysical solutions, intellectual intuition has gone through several stages. Especially for the young Schelling the influence of Fichte with respect to his view on intellectual intuition is considerable. Like Schelling, Hölderlin believes that intellectual intuition is indispensable to inspire the intellect to surpass itself, to turn mere reflection into philosophical inspiration. The chapter discusses Hölderlin's views on the relationship between poetry and philosophy and the crucial role of intellectual intuition.

Keywords: Fichte; Hölderlin; intellectual intuition; Kant; metaphysics; Schelling
