mendellsohn or jacobi?

Although I think Jacobi's basic critique of Reinhold was right (though he thought it a critique of Kant) his conflation of the two meanings of Glauben is inexcusable.

Another way of saying that is that I think Jacobi was basically right to go around accusing everyone of being Spinozists, but that was to their credit and he was really douchy for employing it as a criticism (kind of like when Wolin calls Derrida a Heideggerian).

Plus, Felix is fantastic:

Except when he's mediocre.

Ask me anything
