Two names often grouped together in the study of religion are Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768–1884) and Rudolf Otto (1869–1937). This artistic approach to interpreting texts contained within it an ebb-and-flow between what Schleiermacher called the "grammatical interpretation" and the "psychological (or technical) interpretation." In order to interpret a text, then, the interpreter must consider both the inner thoughts of the author and the language that s/he used in writing the text. Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher (German: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈʃlaɪɐˌmaχɐ]; November 21, 1768 – February 12, 1834) was a German Reformed theologian, philosopher, and biblical scholar known for his attempt to reconcile the criticisms of the Enlightenment with traditional Protestant Christianity. (Friedrich Schlegel, who became Schleiermacher’s close friend, referred to the representatives of the Enlightenment mode as “harmonious dullards.”) More important, Schleiermacher shared his new friends’ sense of individuality and their appreciation of the infinite diversity of the world. Then comes the bombshell. In the first case we receive (in our fashion) the object of thought into ourselves. At the same time, he studied the writings of Immanuel Kant and Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi and began to apply ideas from the Greek philosophers to a reconstruction of Kant's system.

Next to religion and theology, Schleiermacher devoted himself to the moral world, of which the phenomena of religion and theology were, in his systems, only constituent elements. While at boarding school Schleiermacher began toquestion his faith to which the Moravians did not care to give an answer. Kant had done this before and Schleiermacher apparently had been strongly influenced by Kant, of course, without denying the influence of Schelling on him. Here Schleiermacher became acquainted with art, literature, science and general culture. [33] As humans, therefore, interpreters approach a text with some shared understanding with the author that creates the possibility of understanding. He became more indebted to Kant though they differed on fundamental points. Does Schleiermacher's work belong within the ebbing enlightenment movement, seeking, as it did, to bolster the critical imperatives voiced by Mendelssohn, Lessing, and Kant within a post-revolutionary Europe? All moral products may be classified according to the predominance of one or the other of these characteristics. Many of their ideas are shared, and it is often unclear which ofthe two men was the (more) original source of a given idea. Between about 1925 and 1955 it was under severe attack by followers of neoorthodox theology (founded by Karl Barth and Emil Brunner) as leading away from the gospel toward a religion based on human culture. He understood religion as the human effort to communicate our experienced consciousness of the Divine … Liberal theology includes a wide variety of theological, philosophical, and biblical perspectives that have their roots in the European Enlightenment (c. 1660–1798). Brian Gerrish, a scholar of the works of Schleiermacher, wrote: In a letter to his father, Schleiermacher drops the mild hint that his teachers fail to deal with those widespread doubts that trouble so many young people of the present day. Andrew Bowie. Schleiermacher was first and foremost a preacher and theologian, a church statesman, and an educator. "Translators' Introduction", Schleiermacher, Friedrich D. E. "The Hermeneutics: Outline of the 1819 Lectures,", Schleiermacher, Friedrich D. E. "The Hermeneutics: Outline of the 1819 Lectures,". Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834) is often considered the Father of Modern Theology, known for his attempt to reconcile traditional Christian doctrines with philosophical criticisms and scientific discoveries. Born in Breslau in the Prussian Silesia as the grandson of Daniel Schleiermacher, a pastor at one time associated with the Zionites, and the son of Gottlieb Schleiermacher, a Reformed Church chaplain in the Prussian army, Schleiermacher started his formal education in a Moravian school at Niesky in Upper Lusatia, and at Barby near Magdeburg. Schleiermacher divides misunderstanding into two forms: qualitative and quantitative. Starting with the idea of the highest good and of its constituent elements (Güter), or the chief forms of the union of mind and nature, Schleiermacher's system divides itself into the doctrine of moral ends, the doctrine of virtue and the doctrine of duties; in other words, as a development of the idea of the subjection of nature to reason it becomes a description of the actual forms of the triumphs of reason, of the moral power manifested therein and of the specific methods employed. I cannot believe that he who called himself the Son of Man was the true, eternal God; I cannot believe that his death was a vicarious atonement. Paperback: Ulrich Barth / Claus-Dieter Osthövener (Hg.). Friedrich was sent at age 15 to a boarding school run by the Moravian Brethren, a pious evangelical group that traced its roots back to Jan Huss. Schleiermacher’s life was not without personal crises. At age nine his father came into contact with Pietismandentered into a devotional lifestyle. The claim of Schleiermacher as the father of hermeneutics seems to be justified by the fact that his work marks the beginning of hermeneutics as a general field of inquiry, separate from the specific disciplines (e.g. They describe his influence on universal rights, American religious life, theology, philosophy, history, psychology, interpretation of texts, community formation, and interpersonal dialogue. Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher (frē´drĬkh dä´nyĕl ĕrnst shlī´ərmäkh´ər), 1768–1834, German Protestant theologian, b.Breslau. In it we cognize our own inner life as affected by the non-ego. These two over-simplifications are given by Schleiermacher as first, that their conscience shall be put into judgement, and second, the "general idea turns on the fear of an eternal being, or, broadly, respect for his influence on the occurrences of this life called by you providence, or expectation of a future life after this one, called by you immortality."[38]. The neo-orthodoxy movement of the twentieth century, typically (though not without challenge) seen to be spearheaded by Karl Barth, was in many ways an attempt to challenge his influence. From Leibniz, Lessing, Fichte, Jacobi and the Romantic school, Schleiermacher had imbibed a profound and mystical view of the inner depths of the human personality. Schleiermacher's concept of church has been contrasted with J.S. In, Kirn, O. Heavily influenced by Immanuel Kant, Schleiermacher made two key assumptions. He relieved Friedrich Schlegel entirely of his nominal responsibility for the translation of Plato, which they had together undertaken (vols.

"[21] Duke concludes that the Kimmerle edition "reproduces the full, incontestably genuine corpus of Schleiermacher literature on hermeneutics."[22]. Its fundamental principle is that the source and the basis of dogmatic theology are the religious feeling, the sense of absolute dependence on God as communicated by Jesus through the church, not the creeds or the letter of Scripture or the rationalistic understanding. [7], Though the work added to the reputation of its author, it aroused the increased opposition of the theological schools it was intended to overthrow, and at the same time, Schleiermacher's defence of the right of the church to frame its own liturgy in opposition to the arbitrary dictation of the monarch or his ministers brought him fresh troubles. "Understanding" for Schleiermacher is the art of experiencing the same process of thought that the author experienced. [7], Conscience, as the subjective expression of the presupposed identity of reason and nature in their bases, guarantees the practicability of our moral vocation. In a moving letter of 21 January 1787, Schleiermacher admits that the doubts alluded to are his own. The essential nature of the concept is that it combines the general and the special, and the same combination recurs in being; in being the system of substantial or permanent forms answers to the system of concepts and the relation of cause and effect to the system of judgments, the higher concept answering to "force" and the lower to the phenomena of force, and the judgment to the contingent interaction of things. Schleiermacher argued that religion was rooted in human feelings, describing the core of religion as "a sense and taste for the Infinite in the finite." In later life he described it as the feeling of absolute dependence, or, as meaning the same thing, the consciousness of being in relation to God. [7], Schleiermacher died at 65 of pneumonia on February 12, 1834. [7], At the foundation of the University of Berlin (1810), in which he took a prominent part, Schleiermacher obtained a theological chair and soon became secretary to the Prussian Academy of Sciences. FRIEDRICH SCHLEIERMACHER Translated by John Oman from the Third German Edition in 1893 ... the truth of Friedrich Schlegel's saying, that the modern literature, though in several languages, is only one. [40][need quotation to verify], The Dutch Reformed theologian Herman Bavinck, deeply concerned with the problem of objectivism and subjectivism in the doctrine of revelation, employs Schleiermacher’s doctrine of revelation in his own way and regards the Bible as the objective standard for his theological work. The idea of knowledge or scientific thought as distinguished from the passive form of thought — of aesthetics and religion — is thought which is produced by all thinkers in the same form and which corresponds to being. Schweizer was himself deeply influenced by Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768–1834) theology. [7], Schleiermacher's work has had a profound impact upon the philosophical field of hermeneutics. In Beneke's moral system his fundamental idea was worked out in its psychological relations.[7]. Central to their understanding of religion is the idea that religious experience, characterized in terms of feeling, lies at the heart of all genuine religion. Here it is done by Jeffrey Wilcox, Terrence Tice, and Catherine Kelsey with deep understanding and discernment, with the scholar's love of a profound subject constantly showing through.". "[23] Schleiermacher understood that reading a text was a discourse between the interpreter and the text itself; however, he considered the text as the means by which the author is communicating thoughts previous to the creation of the text. by Terrence Tice, Richmond, VA. 1999 text tr. [7], It is in those two functions that the real life of the ego is manifested, but behind them is self-consciousness permanently present, which is always both subjective and objective — consciousness of ourselves and of the non-ego. E. … It connects the moral world by a deductive process with the fundamental idea of knowledge and being; it offers a view of the entire world of human action which at all events aims at being exhaustive; it presents an arrangement of the matter of the science which tabulates its constituents after the model of the physical sciences; and it supplies a sharply defined treatment of specific moral phenomena in their relation to the fundamental idea of human life as a whole. In his book On Religion, Schleiermacher speaks of religion as a “sense and taste for the Infinite.” That established the programme of his subsequent theological system. Plato, Spinoza and Kant had contributed characteristic elements of their thought to this system, and directly or indirectly it was largely indebted to Schelling for fundamental conceptions. Friedrich Schlegel was an immediate influence on histhought here. It answers a deep need in man. 1966 text tr. The work is therefore simply a description of the facts of religious feeling, or of the inner life of the soul in its relations to God, and the inward facts are looked at in the various stages of their development and presented in their systematic connection. [7], Schleiermacher continued with his translation of Plato and prepared a new and greatly-altered edition of his Christlicher Glaube, anticipating the latter in two letters to his friend Gottfried Lücke (in the Studien und Kritiken, 1829) in which he defended his theological position generally and his book in particular against opponents on both the right and the left. law or theology). [7], Schleiermacher classifies the virtues under the two forms of Gesinnung ("disposition, attitude") and Fertigkeit ("dexterity, proficiency"), the first consisting of the pure ideal element in action and the second the form it assumes in relation to circumstances, each of the two classes falling respectively into the two divisions of wisdom and love and of intelligence and application. Of this his Confidential Letters on Schlegel’s Lucinde, as well as his relationship with Eleonore Grunow, wife of a Berlin clergyman, are evidence. [24] These thoughts are what ultimately cause the author to produce the text, thus the place where these "inner thoughts" become "outer expression" in language is at the moment of text creation. Throughout the domain of knowledge the two forms are found in constant mutual relations, another proof of the fundamental unity of thought and being or of the objectivity of knowledge. Our "organization" or sense nature has its intellectual element, and our "intellect" its organic element, and there is no such thing as "pure mind" or "pure body." J. S. Stewart. [27] The interpreter must understand how its original audience understood this language.[28]. "Schleiermacher's thought and influence are both too sprawling, rich, and complex to permit capsule assessments, yet summarize we must, while taking select plunges into detail. This is where the meaning of a text ultimately resides for Schleiermacher. The literary product of that period of rapid development was his influential book, Reden über die Religion (On Religion: Speeches to Its Cultured Despisers), and his "new year's gift" to the new century, the Monologen (Soliloquies). With the fall of the late Middle Ages and a vigorous discourse taking hold of Western European intellectuals, the fields of art and natural philosophy were flourishing. Similarly belief in God, and in personal immortality, are not necessarily a part of religion; one can conceive of a religion without God, and it would be pure contemplation of the universe; the desire for personal immortality seems rather to show a lack of religion, since religion assumes a desire to lose oneself in the infinite, rather than to preserve one's own finite self. [37] He was one of the first major theologians of modern times to teach Christian Universalism. [7], Schleiermacher's own moral system is an attempt to supply these deficiencies. He sympathised with some of Jacobi's positions, and took some ideas from Fichte and Schelling. 1–5, 1804–1810; vol. Their piety called for an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, and focused on one’s personal experience of God and how to make that an active, visible reality in daily life. Unfortunately, because of his liberal approach to theology, Schleiermacher experienced criticism from both his … In 1804, Schleiermacher moved as university preacher and professor of theology to the University of Halle, where he remained until 1807, quickly obtaining a reputation as professor and preacher; he exercised a powerful influence in spite of contradictory charges which accused him of atheism, Spinozism and pietism. His father misses the hint. "Schleiermacher, Friedrich Daniel Ernst". The Soliloquies were published in 1800 and The Christian Faith was published in 1821/22. Friedrich was sent at age 15 to a boardingschool run by the Moravian Brethren, a pious evangelical group that traced itsroots back to Jan Huss. Philosophical and Miscellaneous (9 vols., 1835–1864). Two years later, in 1796, he became chaplain to the Charité Hospital in Berlin. [7], In the first book, Schleiermacher gave religion an unchanging place among the divine mysteries of human nature, distinguished it from what he regarded as current caricatures of religion and described the perennial forms of its manifestation. 6, Repub. Edited by Jeffrey A. Wilcox, Terrence N. Tice, Catherine L. Kelsey, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Terrence N. Tice. As time went on Schleiermacher left to study at the Universit… As time went on Schleiermacher left to study at the Universit… Divine punishment was rehabilitative, not penal, and designed to reform the person. Two years later, in 1796, he became chaplain to the Charité Hospital in Berlin. The grammatical interpretation leads to the technical interpretation as the reader attempts to understand why the author selected the language s/he did to convey his/her inner thoughts. Universal organizing action produces the forms of intercourse, and universal symbolizing action produces the various forms of science; individual organizing action yields the forms of property and individual symbolizing action the various representations of feeling, all these constituting the relations, the productive spheres, or the social conditions of moral action. No action fulfills the conditions of duty except as it combines the three following antitheses: reference to the moral idea in its whole extent and likewise to a definite moral sphere; connection with existing conditions and at the same time absolute personal production; the fulfillment of the entire moral vocation every moment though it can only be done in a definite sphere. "[20] While Schleiermacher did not publish extensively on hermeneutics during his lifetime, he lectured widely on the field. Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834) and Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) had an enormous impact upon the history of theology and western philosophy (besides having some really cool names). He was educated in Moravian schools, then at the Theological Faculty at Halle which had been founded by and still under the influence of pietism. Religion is the miracle of direct relationship with the infinite; and dogmas are the reflection of this miracle. In his Christian Ethics he dealt with the subject from the basis of the Christian consciousness instead of from that of reason generally; the ethical phenomena dealt with are the same in both systems, and they throw light on each other, while the Christian system treats more at length and less aphoristically the principal ethical realities — church, state, family, art, science and society. All knowledge takes the form of the concept (Begriff) or the judgment (Urteil), the former conceiving the variety of being as a definite unity and plurality, and the latter simply connecting the concept with certain individual objects. In the latter we plant it out into the world. There, Schleiermacher met the poet Friedrich Schlegel who became his friend and had a significant influence on him. On Religion is divided into five major sections: the Defense (Apologie), the Nature of Religion (Über das Wesen der Religion), the Cultivation of Religion (Über die Bildung zur Religion), Association in Religion (Über das Gesellige in der Religion, oder über Kirche und Priesterthum), and the Religions (Über die Religionen). Thus every person becomes a specific and original representation of the universe and a compendium of humanity, a microcosmos in which the world is immediately reflected. Meanwhile, he studied Spinoza and Plato, both of whom were important influences. [7], Schleiermacher developed a deep-rooted skepticism as a student and soon rejected orthodox Christianity.[17]. The upbringing that his father, a Refor… Semler's. Though a moral action may have these four characteristics at various degrees of strength, it ceases to be moral if one of them is quite absent.
