Friedrich Schlegel was a German Romantic philosopher. His dates were
1772-1829, so he is end of the 18th century, beginning of the 19th. He
was among a group of philosophers a generation younger than Kant who
extended Kant's idealism. He is most famous for his writing on aesthetics,
at least among literature professors, such as Lectures on the History of
Literature, and on the philosophy of history. I don't know of his naturalist
writing though.
