Heidegger asks in the first few chapters if system and freedom are compatible. Because of the nature of evil, the absolute must be an "eternal becoming."

This is both a valuable commentary/explanation of Schelling's short book and an introduction to some of the themes in the philosophy of Heidegger.

Martin Heidegger (1889–1976) was a German philosopher whose work is perhaps most readily associated with phenomenology and existentialism, although his thinking should be identified as part of such philosophical movements only with extreme care and qualification.
