Synopsis:

A classic of 18th-century thought, Schiller's treatise on the role of art in society ranks among German philosophy's most profound works. An important contribution to the history of ideas, it employs a political analysis of contemporary society — and of the French Revolution, in particular — to define the relationship between beauty and art.

Synopsis:

In this, one of his chief philosophical writings, Schiller attempts to develop Kant's theory of art to the conclusion that 'Beauty' and 'Play' together constitute the ethical ideal. In a series of letters Schiller wrote to his benefactor Friedrich Christian, Duke of Scbleswig Holstein-Augustenburg, he expresses his convictions and concerns on matters both aesthetic and ethical. This is a particularly: acclaimed translation of Schiller's prose, which successfully captures his characteristically poetic style.
