Schiller as Philosopher

This chapter introduces Schiller’s historical context and philosophical development. While emphasizing the importance of Schiller’s early writings, it also argues that Schiller’s discovery of Kant in the 1780s marks a break with much of his earlier thinking. Metaphysical interpretations of Schiller’s thought have failed to recognize the purport of his conversion to Kant.

Keywords:   Kant, Ferguson, theosophy, skepticism, metaphysics, virtue, enlightenment, dualism, anthropology
