When I first dove into this book, I enjoyed Kaufmann's earnest dismantling of Kant and Hegel's misplaced affectations of rigour/completeness, necessity, and science in favour of the organic poetic philosophy of Goethe – I still feel motivated to steep myself in the writing of Goethe. As I read on (beyond around page 225), I found Kaufmann's reiterations of this theme somewhat less interesting. Kaufmann is very easy to read and understand while he makes points worth understanding, so the experience of a little repetition was not too unpleasant. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in his Discovering the Mind trilogy.
