German poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller s famous text on art, politics, and society "The artist is certainly the child of his age, but all the worse for him if he is at the same time its pupil, even worse its minion. " One of the most profound works of German philosophy, Friedrich Schiller s "On the Aesthetic Education of Man "examines politics, revolution, and the history of ideas in order argue that art should have a greater role in shaping society. Deeply disillusioned with the course of the French Revolution, Schiller expressed his complaints in a series of letters to a patron, an impassioned attempt to drag mankind upward from failure to greatness by placing ideas of aesthetic education at the heart of the human experience: Our era has actually taken both wrong turnings, and has fallen prey to coarseness on the one path, lethargy and perversity on the other. Having strayed along both paths, it is beauty that can lead [us] back. One of Germany s greatest political statements from a time of revolutionary change, Schiller s arguments are as arresting, challenging, and inspiring today as when they were first written."

This study analyses the way in which Schiller sought to connect history with aesthetics in his Aesthetic Education. Rhetoric is seen as a key concept which allows for the combination of formal and sociological interpretation of Schiller's text. A close analysis of Schiller's argument stresses both the positive nature of his ideal, and the problematic results of his imperfect attempt to integrate this ideal with reality. The structural breaks in Schiller's argument are then related to the social context in which the theory was formulated.

Friedrich Schiller was a German philosopher, poet, and playwright during the late 1700's. Schiller was in the army when he began writing his first plays. His superiors found his first composition and immediately told him that he was no longer allowed to write anymore. In response, Schiller deserted the army, moved to another country, and began writing under a false name. During this time, Schiller became close with famed playwright Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Along with Goethe, Schiller was a deep-thinker on ethics and aesthetics. His beliefs held that beauty is not just an aesthetic experience; beauty is connected with goodness. He also was preoccupied with the morals of human freedom and how the will for freedom conflicted with self-preservation or martyrdom. Both Schiller and Goethe had a complex relationship with Immanuel Kant's philosophies, though they respected Kant for his influence on the subject of aesthetics. Some critics and philosophers have looked at Schiller's works such as the ones present in "Aesthetical and Philosophical Essays" and believed that Schiller's ideas have the potential for being very useful to society. Because Schiller believed that the aesthetic function of beauty could release mankind from struggle, some have argued that his views could ultimately change the world if adopted by all people. While Schiller is not seen as one of the foremost thinkers on ethics and aesthetics, he certainly proved his intelligent ideas and critiques of the subjects with works such as this one.

This thesis examines the relationship between beauty and morality in Friedrich Schiller's notion of aesthetic education (as presented in his Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man). By first looking back to Kant's influence on Schiller, the paper then takes a more profound look at Schiller's agreements with and departures from Kant, as well as his ideas on freedom and play. The final portion of the paper considers aesthetic education (and its moral goals) as it might be put into practice, using the educational theory of Rudolf Steiner and the development of his Waldorf School as its central focus.

This book is the first in English to provide a detailed philosophical study of Schiller's major work in aesthetics, the Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man (1795). The introduction surveys those books in English with chapters on the treatise and concludes with an outline of Kant's critical system and a summary of this theories of aesthetic judgment, art and beauty. The main body of the work consists of an exegesis of Schiller's text. In part one (Letters 1-9), we follow Schiller as he describes the afflictions of civilization and their cure. In part two (Letters 10-17), we follow Schiller as he considers the essential nature of man and beauty. In part three (Letters 18-27), we follow Schiller as he describes the psychological development of the individual and species from a sensuous to a rational condition, through the mediation of the aesthetic. The exposition is accompanied by assessment and criticism. The conclusion commences with a recapitulation of the main arguments in each Letter. This is followed by an evaluation of the Aesthetic Letters, identifying those specific theories of contemporary relevance, and with the potential for further theoretical development.
