Learn about Dreams Of A Spirit Seer :
That the ” Dreams of a Spirit-Seer ” was a humorous critique aimed chiefly at the philosophers of his day, using Swedenborg as a convenient because non-combative and comparatively unknown mark for his blows, is now generally conceded. But the century and a half that have elapsed since that time have brought Swedenborg out of his obscurity into light, and his real relation to Kant and the latter’s great indebtedness to him is now first seriously arousing the attention of the students of German philosophy. See especially the notices by Professor Vaihinger, of the University of Halle, in his Commentar zur Krilik d. R. V., Vol. II., pp. 143. 345. 431, 512, 513, Stuttgart, 1893; and in Kant Studien, Vol. I : II., on Kant and Swedenborg : also Heinze’s “Observations on Kant’s Lectures on Metaphysics” in Abhandlungen der Sdchsischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften. Leipzig, 1894: P. von Linds Kants Mystische Weltanschauung, ein Wahn der Modernen Mystik ; Munich 1892 : Du Prel’s Essay on Kanfs Mystical View of the World, in his edition of Kant’s Lectures on Psychology, Leipzig, 1809; and Der Angebliche Mysticismus Kants: Robert Hoar, Brugg, 1895.
