The Organon of Philosophy: Schelling's Art and Nature
Friedrich Schelling is considered the founder of modern “natural philosophy”, as well as one of the key art theorists. He considered nature as a living, inspired and self-creating aggregate of creative processes. Unlike many contemporaries, he did not consider it mechanically, but dialectically, referring to isolated phenomena as a single whole. In this sense, he anticipated the Marxist view of science, which was later developed by the Soviet dialect. It is interesting that the philosopher applied this holistic approach to art, in particular, likening the art of organic life. Today, when artists are increasingly turning to the physical, chemical and biological qualities of artistic materials, while philosophers speak of the "vibrating matter" and the "agent-based" power of things, Schelling's ideas begin to sound unexpectedly relevant.
