Jakob Joseph Winterl is a significant figure both of the Hungarian history of science and the international history of chemistry. The present paper describes the connection between Winterl´s dualistic chemistry and romantic Philosophy of Nature. Winterl´s dualistic approach had an initiative role in the development of Schelling´s early philosophy which can be documented by the text of the Weltseele. The goal of this paper is to verify the mutuality of the above connection.
