He treats Schiller's famous aesthetic essays in philosophical terms by assessing the meaning and merit of their fundamental arguments. Beiser maintains that Schiller has been deeply misunderstood by his Kantian, Marxist, and post-modernist critics and that his philosophy presents a viable transformation of Kantian ethics; he shows Schiller's philosophy to be one of the most profound explorations of the connections between morals and aesthetics in the Western intellectual tradition." "A landmark in the study of German thought, Schiller as Philosopher offers stimulation and insight to any philosopher, historian, or literary scholar engaged with the key developments of this fertile period."--Jacket.
