Frederich Schelling was a friend of Hegel's. Like Spinoa, Schelling's philosophy is undergoing a revival in modern thought, mostly related to his philosophy of nature. Schelling's vision was one of an idealist identity of nature and spirit. The development of his thought is traced back from its beginning in 1797 when Schelling reformulated Spinoza's concept of holism as the ultimate concurrence of finity and infinity. In his next publication, Schelling expanded his thoughts to overcome Cartesian dualisms and to grasp the unity in the diversity of action. His thought then evolved to include a parallelism of intellect and nature.
