This paper explores the connections between Wolff’s system and the birth of philosophical anthropology. Sections 1-2 consider Wolff’s view on the disciplinary status of anthropology and his influence on Halle’s school of philosophical medicine (esp. J. G. Krüger). Sections 3-5 focus on Hanov’s treatise on general anthropology (1768) and the tension between his professed Wolffian inspiration and his holistic concern for the union of soul and body. Hanov’s ambiguous attitude towards Wolff is part of a widespread reaction against psychophysical parallelism.

Abstract

This paper explores the connections between Wolff’s system and the birth of philosophical anthropology. Sections 1-2 consider Wolff’s view on the disciplinary status of anthropology and his influence on Halle’s school of philosophical medicine (esp. J. G. Krüger). Sections 3-5 focus on Hanov’s treatise on general anthropology (1768) and the tension between his professed Wolffian inspiration and his holistic concern for the union of soul and body. Hanov’s ambiguous attitude towards Wolff is part of a widespread reaction against psychophysical parallelism.
