Jacobi, Friedrich Heinrich: Werke, ed. F. H. Jacobi and F. Köppen (Leipzig: Weidmann, 1846).

Although it had been simmering for decades, the crisis of the Aufklärung reached boiling point in 1786. The first bad omen was the death of Friedrich II, "the philosopher king," who had always supported the Aufklärung from the throne. The prospects that his successor, Friedrich Wilhelm II, would be as enlightened looked grim. But disaster truly struck when Jacobi published his Briefe ueber die Lehre von Spinoza (Letters on the Doctrine of Spinoza), which revealed Lessing's shocking confession of Spinozism.

They were no less concerned with the foundations and implications of his moral, political, and aesthetic doctrines; but the problem of the Deduction loomed very large for some of the most eminent among them, such as Reinhold, Maimon, FICHTE (see Article 3), SCHELLING (Article 5), and HEGEL (Article 6). We shall attempt to do some justice to it in the next section. So this classical approach does have a substantial, if not total, historical justification. What, then, is wrong with it? It suffers from myopia, a failure to see the broader context of German philosophy in the 1780s and 1790s.
