Sample text

There were, in fact, considerable differences between Kant and Reinhold, and they became apparent by 1790 when Reinhold began to develop, for the first time, a system of his own – although he was even then trying to present himself as still true to Kant. Because the Merkur was a journal with a very wide audience, the style of Reinhold’s writing, especially at the very beginning of the Letters, is more literary than is typical of his philosophical works. Readers should not be put off by the unusually dense first few pages and the dialogue that the author constructs between himself and an imaginary philosophical partner.

When I now confess to you that my opinion is exactly the opposite of yours, I know that I am claiming something quite paradoxical to you. Yet I also know that for the time being I already have your heart on my side, and thus I hope to come to agreement with your mind all the sooner. Your letter has portrayed aptly enough the disarray in which the concerns of reason in matters of religion now find themselves among us. And however much the individual features of your portrait must lose some of their determinateness in the sketch that I have drawn up of them, I still believe that every more attentive observer of our age will rediscover even in this sketch the most pertinent recent events, together with their heroes, as well as some of his own observations regarding them.
