HISTORY OF IDEAS – Romanticism

Romanticism is a historical movement that still hugely colours how we tend to feel and look at the world: it’s responsible for the way we approach love, nature, business and children. This is its history. If you like our films take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide):

  1. Excellent video, but object to what you said about how "romantics don't believe in God". To clarify, many romantics (Coleridge, etc.) DOD believe in God, but rejected the established church and "religion", seeing it as hypocritical.

  2. It's interesting that you should end with the hope for "an age of maturity." Man's self-styled emergence into "maturity" based on reason is the central idea behind Kant's conception of the Enlightenment. And the entire Romantic movement opposed itself to the Enlightenment.

  3. Romantics don't believe in God ? Really !? Romantics not only believed in God but they had a religious spirit. To be a Romantic you had to be religious. Coleridge was a theologian and spoke passionately about God and His love. Sure some of the Romantics did not care about Religion but to say flatly that they didn't believe in God is a complete lie.

  4. I'm such a romantic. I would rehearse my poetry around the house as a very small child. Wear long sheets, and pretend they were beautiful Victorian ball gowns. I practiced kissing across the top of my hand, and dramatic movie scenes. Lol

  5. No. Romanticism started later. Goethe never was a romantic! Sorrow of young Werther is Sturm und Drang, not romantic. Romanticism came after Classic which came after Sturm und Drang

  6. Everyone who sees this message look into offgrid homesteads.. That basically answers the question at the end. It's ideology combines modern technology with the romantist views & appreciation of nature.

  7. Personally, I love the "Age of Maturity." As I've been watching documentaries this morning on the different ages, it seems each one was a reaction to the imperfection of the one before. Why not take the best of all?
