Contagion Sexuality, Disease, and Death in German Idealism and Romanticism Synopsis

Krell writes here with a brilliance of style that few other philosophers can match. -John Sallis Although the Romantic Age is usually thought of as idealizing nature as the source of birth, life, and creativity, David Farrell Krell focuses on the preoccupation of three key German Romantic thinkers-Novalis, Schelling, and Hegel-with nature's destructive powers-contagion, disease, and death.
