He was born in Vienna. At the age of fourteen he entered the Jesuit college of St. Anna, on the dissolution of which (1774) he joined a similar college of the order of St. Barnabas. Finding himself out of sympathy with monastic life, he fled in 1783 to North Germany, and settled in Weimar, where he became Christoph Martin Wieland's collaborator on the German Mercury(Der Teutsche Merkur), and eventually his son-in-law. Vienna (German: Wien [viːn]; Slovenian: Dunaj, Hungarian: Bécs, Czech: Vídeň, Slovak: Viedeň, Romany Vidnya; Croatian and Serbian: Beč) is the capital of Austria, and also one of the nine States of Austria. ... The Society of Jesus (Latin: Societas Iesu), commonly known as the Jesuits, is a Roman Catholic religious order. ... See also Weimar Republic. ... Christoph Martin Wieland (September 5, 1733 _ January 20, 1813), was a German poet and writer. ...


In the German Mercury he published, in the years 1786-87, his Briefe über die Kantische Philosophie, which were most important in making Kant known to a wider circle of readers. As a result of these Letters, Reinhold received a call to the university of Jena, where he taught from 1787 to 1794. Immanuel Kant Immanuel Kant (April 22, 1724 – February 12, 1804) was a Prussian philosopher, generally regarded as one of Europes most influential thinkers and the last major philosopher of the Enlightenment. ...

In 1789 he published his chief work, the Versuch einer neuen Theorie des menschlichen Vorstellungsvermogens, in which he attempted to simplify the Kantian theory and make it more of a unity. In 1794 he accepted a call to Kiel, where he taught till his death in 1823, altough his independent activity had come to an end. Kiel [keel, (help· info)] is a city in northern Germany and the capital of the Bundesland Schleswig-Holstein. ...


In later life he was powerfully influenced by Fichte, and subsequently, on grounds of religious feeling, by F. H. Jacobi and Bardili. His historical importance belongs entirely to his earlier activity. The development of the Kantian standpoint contained in the New Theory of Human Understanding (1789), and in the Fundament des philosophischen Wissens (1791), was called by its author Elementärphilosophie.

Christoph Gottfried Bardili (1761‑1808), German philosopher, was born at Blaubeuren in Württemberg, and died at Stuttgart. ...


Reinhold lays greater emphasis than Kant upon the unity and activity of consciousness. The principle of consciousness tells us that every idea is related both to an object and a subject, and is partly to be distinguished from and partly united to both. Since form cannot produce matter nor subject object, we are forced to assume a thing-in-itself. This is a notion which is self-contradictory if consciousness were to be essentially a relating activity. There is therefore something which must be thought and yet cannot be thought(Høffding, History of Modern Philosophy, Eng. trans., vol. ii.). See R. Keil, Wieland und Reinhold (2nd ed., Leipzig, 1890); J. E. Erdmann, Grundriss der Geschichte der Philosophie (Berlin, 1866); histories of philosophy by Richard Falckenberg and Wilhelm Windelband. Consciousness is a quality of the mind generally regarded to comprise such key features as subjectivity, self-awareness, sentience, sapience, and the ability to perceive the relationship between oneself and ones environment. ... In the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, a noumenon or thing in itself (German Ding an sich) is an unknowable, undescribable reality that, in some way, lies behind observed phenomena. ... Harald Høffding (March 11, 1843 - July 2, 1931) was a Danish philosopher. ... Johann Eduard Erdmann (June 13, 1805 - June 12, 1892), German philosophical writer, was born at Wolmar (now Valmiera, Latvia). ... Wilhelm Windelband (1848 - 1915) was a German philosopher of the Baden School. ...
