Johann Gustav Droysen on Forces - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 218
Forces/History/Droysen/Gadamer: According to Droysen, too, it is (...) the concept of force in which the border of all speculative historical metaphysics becomes visible.
DroysenVsHegel: In this sense Droysen criticizes Hegel's concept of development - much like Ranke - unless an embryonic plant unfolds itself in the course of history. But he defines more sharply what force means here: "With work the forces increase". The moral force of the individual becomes a historical power by being active in working for the great common purposes. It becomes a historical force in so far as the moral sphere is the permanent and powerful element in the course of things. Force is therefore no longer, as with Ranke, an original and immediate manifestation of All-Life (German: "All-Leben"), but is only in such mediation and only through such mediation does it attain historical reality. >History/Droysen, >Freedom/Droysen.
