This chapter discusses some aspects of the approach to religion that philosopher J. W. F. Schelling developed in his late “positive philosophy”. It examines how Schelling's thoughts and ideas were taken up and revoked by Ernst Bloch. This chapter suggests that despite their differences, Schelling and Bloch both challenged contemporary continental philosophy of religion to clarify its ontology of freedom in the context of a possible religion after religion.

Keywords: Schelling; positive philosophy; religion; Ernst Bloch; Continental philosophy; ontology of freedom
