Schleiermacher’s moral theory takes as its central value the concept of individuality that has been anchored to the feeling of infinity in the Discourses on Religion. The analysis of Monologues confirms a substantial continuity on this point. Finally, the exposure of legal and social features in Kantian ethics concludes this path in the Kritik der bisherigen Sittenlehre. Among repressive and eudemonistic systems, Schleiermacher follows the lead of the ‘abproductive’ ethics of Plato and Spinoza. These precursors do not express in a typical way the individualistic-romantic instance that Schleiermacher carry out, but their ‘abreligious’ spirit ensures that the affirmations of individualities occur within the horizon of a fundamental harmony.
