This morning I came across this new article: C. Jeffery Kinlaw, “Freedom and Moral Agency in the Young Schleiermacher,” The Review of Metaphysics 58:4 (2005), 843-69. It’s an exposition and critique of Schleiermacher’s early treatise on freedom, “Über die Freiheit.” Very interesting, although more philosophical than theological. It’s always a joy to read about Schleiermacher, and it’s great to see some of his shorter writings receiving close attention—another noteworthy article in this respect is Matthias Gockel, “New Perspectives on an Old Debate: Friedrich Schleiermacher’s Essay on Election,” International Journal of Systematic Theology 6:3 (2004), 301-18.
