Friedrich Schiller

on the aesthetic education of man

Here man is selfish and self- centered since he is dominated by sensation. Beginning with a political analysis of contemporary society — in particular, the French Revolution and its failure to implement universal freedom — Schiller observes that people cannot transcend their circumstances without education. In this book he defines patterns of beauty and art and also he is trying to integrate the patterns of beauty into the educational process of humans. If the base philosophy here is true, and I think that much of it is, the moral development of the current man will only rarely reach a significant maturation. Through aesthetic experience, he asserts, people can reconcile the inner antagonism between sense and intellect, nature and reason. If the base philosophy here is true, and I think that much of it is, the moral development of the current man will only rarely reach a significant maturation.

Schiller admired classical Greece and its art and saw the role of history and freedom important in the discussion of the nature of art. Therefore it is necessary to improve the overall education nowadays. But the voice of our age seems by no means favorable to art, at all events to that kind of art to which my inquiry is directed. The latter is a negative from internal infinite completeness, the former a limitation from internal infinite power. An interesting footnote by Schiller points out that this is the paradox of humankind… that knowledge was a kind of expulsion from the Eden of pure nature where all was whole.

The pure source of beauty streams down from the divine part of our being, from the eternally pure ether of ideal mankind, uninfected by the spirit of the age that seethes in the dark eddies far below. Lacking this balance, harmony and character, Schiller perceives widespread disaster for both lower and higher social classes, that is, people of the lower classes living crude, coarse, lawless, brutal lives and people of the higher, civilized classes are even more repugnant, living lethargic, slothful, passive lives. This division of sensibility into sense and intellect can also be understood from psyche getting divided into reason rationalist and intuition empiricist. I am not doing a full review here, so for now, please read some of the quotes I have included below. For example works of various artists such as Picasso, Dali and others make my aesthetic views upon the issue.

During the last few years of his life 1788—1805 , Schiller struck up a productive, if complicated, friendship with already famous and influential Johann Wolfgang Goethe, with whom he greatly discussed issues concerning aesthetics, encouraging Goethe to finish works h Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller November 10, 1759 — May 9, 1805 was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and dramatist. Denne boken er god — å lese figurer fra opplysningstiden skrive «Sapere Aude! And where does such play and spontaneous creativity ultimately lead? The book touches upon a broad range of topics, some of which you do not normally associate with aesthetics. Also it is always better to find patterns of beauty in the staff that we are experiencing. Boken bruker et litt avansert språk, men er stort sett ganske leselig om man har litt forkunnskaper om emnet som tas opp. And Schiller tells us he is drawing his ideas from his life rather than from books and is pleading the cause of beauty before his very own heart that perceives beauty and ex Aesthetics is the branch of philosophy addressing beauty, taste, art and the sublime. But in our day it is necessity, neediness, that prevails, and bends a degraded humanity under its iron yoke. To flesh out Schiller's meaning of play, let's look at a couple of examples.

I have not been exhaustive with the selection, but included some more extended passages which contain some of Schiller's more important and central arguments. Det er en motsigelse mellom menneskets evne til å sanse og tenke, men disse blir forent ved det skjønne, som er en egen natur for hva det vil si å være menneske. . This short but dense book has been really enlightening for me, not least of all because his thought sees as such a strong precursor to Hegel, which I have been reading a lot lately. This was a tough read, deeply intellectual. Beauty in art is what enhances individual. In ancient Greece, there was totality as people could co-ordinate between imagination and reason.

In addition to its importance to the history of ideas, this 1795 essay remains relevant to our own time. However, some interesting ideas are outlined that will become more and more important as Modernity advances. It is in this way that the few remnants of the Greek spirit wander through the night of our Nordic age, and the electric shock of this spirit arouses some related souls to a sense of their greatness.

Nhưng ý mà Schiller muốn nói về Education rất cách mạng. People are bound with high moral sense. Not a pretty picture, to say the least. He was making assumptions that aesthetic education is one of the most important to human. Excuses himself for using intellect even while he will be critiquing it.

According to Schiller, freedom is attained when the sensual and rational in man are fully integrated but his aesthetic disposition is seen as coming from Nature. There are not too many tools that are designed for that purpose resently. This world is the world of complete freedom in which both emotion and morality are subdued. This desire is rooted in an enjoyment of aesthetical appearance. Som sagt er det litt mye å ta innover seg en sen søndagskveld, men han går faktisk såpass metodisk til verks at det skal godt gjøres ikke å følge hans tankegang sånn noenlunde.

Opposition is overcome not which the two ideal and real constituents mix, but when the constituents cancel each other out, forming a new whole which leaves no trace of the division. It would seem that now at length a question that formerly was only settled by the law of the stronger is to be determined by the calm judgment of the reason, and every man who is capable of placing himself in a central position, and raising his individuality into that of his species, can look upon himself as in possession of this judicial faculty of reason; being moreover, as man and member of the human family, a party in the case under trial and involved more or less in its decisions. Determining faculty however is related to formal drive where the development of self becomes difficult. Women are actually very important factors of beauty. State and Church, laws and manners, means from end, effort from reward. But it must be remembered that the text is basically a fragment, a part of a larger, unfinished project. It is guided by reason and intellect.

Aesthetics is the branch of philosophy addressing beauty, taste, art and the sublime. This living shape gives rise to what Schiller considers Beauty, which is the basis of the aesthetic science. It demands timelessness and eternity. It is equally incumbent on us to be good members of our own age as of our own state or country. It wants to transcend time and space.
