The article focuses on Schelling's first version of identity philosophy as it is developed in his essay "Presentation of My System of Philosophy." The author interprets it as a response to unsolved problems of Kant's theory of the transcendental ideal. The most challenging is the question of: how it is possible to let the specific possibilities arise from the single unconditional principle grounded in transcendental affirmation? The author finds the answer to this question in Schelling's concept of absolute identity, which must be understood as a condition of the meaningfulness of every proposition, which is determined through the form of predication. © M.E. 2011 Sharpe, Inc.
