During my lectures I would like to show how the works of Immanuel Kant gave rise to a new generation of German philosophers (Hegel, Fichte, Schelling and Schopenhauer) and began to see wider recognition internationally. I am going to show as well the opposition to German idealism in the existential philosophy of Kierkegaard and in the atheistic and materialistic philosophy of Feuerbach and Marx. My aim is also to bring closer 19th century positivism ideas, British idealism, American

Pragmatism, Nietzsche’s philosophy of life and Bergson’s philosophy of intuition
