This research aims at analyzing and debating the interpretative view of the French philosopher Gérard Lebrun about the classic German philosophy, from Kant to Nietzsche, passing through Hegel, Schopenhauer, the young Marx and the young Hegelianers (Feuerbach and Stirner). According to Lebrun, the postkantian philosophy developed, based on Kants philosophy of History, a series of Speculative Eschatologies which were attempting to protect the rights of the universal ideas against the attacks from authors who have criticized the capacity of reason to do such enterprises. On the other hand, Nietzsche and Stirner are the principals’ contenders of this German speculative tradition. This research is an attempt to recall the Gérard Lebruns method of history of the philosophy. (AU)
