Abstract

In Schelling’s ‘On the Relation between the Real and the Ideal in Nature’ (1806), not only does the titular copula bond real and ideal, but is itself bonded in and by nature. If the copula doesn’t merely bond nature and judgment, but bonds the latter to the former as an instance of the nature from which it derives, what relation does the essay’s search for nature’s primals bear to the universalism of logical law? What, moreover, is the relation of the copula to its environing nature? I here aim to explore the claim that, for Schelling, something is logically exhibited when the nature in the judgment differs for that reason for the nature in which it is itself contained or conceived.
