Publisher Comments:

A classic of 18th-century thought, Schiller's treatise on the role of art in society ranks among German philosophys 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. Schiller's proposal of art as fundamental to the development of society and the individual remains an influential concept, and this volume offers his philosophys clearest, most relevant expression.

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.
