Great New Books in the Humanities: Transplanting the Metaphysical Organ: German Romanticism between Leibniz and Marx
Join us for a conversation about Leif Weatherby's recent book, Transplanting the Metaphysical Organ: German Romanticism between Leibniz and Marx from Fordham University Press.
Around 1800, German romanticism developed a philosophy this study calls "Romantic organology." Scientific and philosophical notions of biological function and speculative thought converged to form the discourse that Transplanting the Metaphysical Organ reconstructs-a metaphysics meant to theorize, and ultimately alter, the structure of a politically and scientifically destabilized world.
