Hans Vaihinger founded this in 1897 with the express purpose of allowing freedom of discussion without the partisanship of the earlier school journals, and alone among all of these journals it has not ceased publication but continues to be a primary source for work on Kant. Despite all their differences and the lengthy and sometimes personal quarrels it is safe to say that virtually all of the Neo-Kantians subscribed to the movement’s battle cry, which came from Otto Liebmann’s Kant und die Epigonen (Kant and the Epigones): ‘So muß auf Kant zur¨uckgegangen werden’ (‘So [we] must return to Kant’) (Liebmann 1865).
While this may have been the primary focus, many of the Marburg philosophers were concerned with political, social, and religious issues. This is clearly evident with Lange. Friedrich Albert Lange did not become a professor until 1870 when he was forty-two years old. Before that time he was a Gymnasium (upper-level secondary school) teacher, a writer and editor of newspapers and articles, and the equivalent of head of the chamber of commerce. During these years he discussed issues of political and social importance.
But within the German-speaking scientific community another division appeared. On the one hand were those scientists who adopted a strong reductive empiricism, such as Mach, and on the other those who took theory to be a source of reliable knowledge, as good as or better than experiment and observation, physicists such as Hertz and Boltzmann. Here we have a more tightly defined kind of positivism in opposition to scientific realism. To make the ‘internalist’ history of the movement even more complicated one of the major figures, Herman Helmholtz (1821–94), developed a strongly Kantian account not only of the natural sciences, but also of the very possibility of perception.
