Example text

On the contrary (and on this point Goethe certainly could not agree): "It is the rounding off and finishing, the organic completion of anthropology, which without this essential part has so far only represented a fragment of the depiction of man. 61 At this point we shall leave the discussion of Heinroth's Anthrop%gie. I do not propose to go into more detail on the subject, because the preceding pages were concerned solely with placing Heinroth's anthropological work in relation to (contemporary) philosophical and scientific positions, and describing the anthropological model he created.

It must be noted here that the eventual reconciliation between realists and idealists is considered to be possible only through the intervention of researchers on the fourth level: if one can say of the advocates of Ausgleichung (reason) that they too are idealists (Heinroth does not say this explicitly, but the text suggests it),52 then Ausgleichung, as Heinroth means it, would be something between realism and a wrongly-conceived idealism (in this case Schelling's) in the name of the only true idealism (that of Heinroth inspired by Goethe).

A 'somaticist', then, is someone who in his psychiatric theory adopts a 'psychosomatic' standpOint of this kind. 139 From this we can conclude that when, as in the case of Jacobi, we are dealing with a dualism of body and soul, the distinction between 'somatic' and 'psychic' means something very different from what present-day scientific psychiatric usage suggests. 140 The passage from Jacobi, quoted above, illustrates this point to some extent: it is a requirement of religious ethics to assume an absolute difference between psychic health and disease, which presupposes an absolute separation of the soul (which cannot become ill) and the (animated) body (which can become ill).
