Zusammenfassung / Summary
Karl Christian Friedrich Krause (1781-1832) is a tragic character in the course of modern philosophy. While he gained some popularity in Spain and Latin America, he is almost completely unknown to the German and Anglo-Saxon world. The paper starts with a brief survey concerning Krause’s life before it presents an outline of his panentheistic thought, according to which God is the one infinite being which holds the world within. I end by way of arguing that Krause’s panentheism is an important and insightful source of philosophical theology which is directly relevant for the recent discussion concerning the adequacy of classical theism.
