Between Enlightenment and Romanticism does not develop one overarching argument, but approaches Schleiermacher’s work from a number of different directions.
Dedicated to the Protestant Church in the line of Calvin, Schleiermacher was equally a man of the university who brought the highest standards of rationality, linguistic sensitivity and a sense of history to bear upon religion.
That history—not only in the form of the lived experience of a writer, but also the history of the appropriation of a text—should be of supreme importance in grasping the meaning of a body of work, is a theme that runs throughout Richard Crouter’s book on Friedrich Schleiermacher —arguably the most significant Christian theologian since the middle ages.
The three sections of this book include illuminating sketches of Schleiermacher’s relationship to contemporaries Mendelssohn, Hegel and Kierkegaardhis work as public theologian dialogue on Jewish emancipation, founding the University of Berlin as well as the formation and impact of his two most famous books, On Religion: Kierkegaards not so hidden debt. Although Schleiermacher’s work has had something of a renaissance within the Anglophone world — several important translations including Crouter’s own translation of On Religion have been published over the past years — there are few systematic studies of his intellectual contribution.
And if this, given Crouter’s theological orientation, is a text that does not answer the most important questions a philosopher may be prone to raise with regard to Schleiermacher’s work, it should still be seen as an important call for more philosophically geared studies of this so often underrated 19 th century philosopher.
For whereas Heidegger, in the early s, calls for a direct engagement with the texts of the past, one in which their original context or meaning is completely played down, Schleiermacher and Dilthey, though in different ways, emphasize the need to pay heed to the text in its original context.

David Blanar rated it liked it Aug 09, The parts of Crouter’s book that I found by far the most interesting — but also, unfortunately, the most problematic — are the ones that directly address Schleiermacher’s philosophical position and intellectual legacy. Yet the fact that the young Heidegger was indeed acquainted with Schleiermacher’s theological writings, and that this, as Theodore Kisiel has pointed out, did indeed leave some marks on his early thinking, is not sufficient to warrant a parallel with regard to the hermeneutic problems that Crouter addresses.
In my view, the philosophically most interesting strands of Schleiermacher scholarship over the past years have been the ones that deal with Schleiermacher’s hermeneutics, aesthetics, and theory of language and translation. Crouter has long harboured a wish to write a biography of Schleiermacher, and his knowledge of the factors that shaped his life and thought make this book a valuable guide to understanding him.
