Coleridge is learn as an excited and profitable expositor of this philosophy's power to articulate an absolute grounding of truth. Its comprehensiveness, even though, rendered redundant extra theological description, undermining the religion it had looked as if it would aid. therefore arose Coleridge's apprehensive disguising of his German plagiarisms, aspersions forged on German originality, and his claims to have already skilled their insights inside his personal non secular sensibility or within the writings of Anglican divines and neo-Platonists. This publication recovers the level to which his rules name to be accelerated inside German philosophical debate.
