PostSubject: American Transcendentalism and Deism   Mon Feb 25, 2008 4:34 pm

Averroes brought this up in another thread.

Averroes wrote:
It was in 19th century rise of Indian mysteries in German Idealism, and it's correlate the Transcendentalist movement in United States, that lead towards the increased alignment of secular or non-scriptural spiritualism with Romanticism or the love of the natural.

But then neither the German Idealist nor the American Transcendentalists can be called Deists proper without stretching the definition of that term too thin. Of course, on a very superficial level they were indeed Deists--although, they mostly wrote deriding the Deist thought of 18th century.

I would argue that the German Idealists and American Transcendentalists are essentially like 3rd generation deists. The first generation being innatests and rationalists and the second generation being empiricists.

I would place the Deism of someone like Matthew Tindal in the first category, the Deism of someone like Voltaire or Paine in the second and the philosophy of someone like Schelling, Hegel, or Emerson in the third.

Any thoughts?

I agree, if reverence for nature is the distinguishing characteristic of the third generation.
