The Essays on Aesthetics Volume 2
About the Book
“On the aesthetic education of the human being” is probably the most famous work of Frederick Schiller. In this masterpiece, he presents in a series of 27 letters the many points that people should know about in order to complete his or her aesthetic education.
These letters constitute one of Schiller’s most valuable legacy to the past, present and future generations. It links the actions of the individual citizen to the various groups and interests they belong to, and finally, to the clockwork of the national government.
In “On the ground for enjoying tragic subjects” and in “On the contemporary German theater”, Frederick Schiller analyzes the many aesthetic effects of tragic subjects, among other things, that these subjects reflect to us values we cherish, but which unfortunately, we cannot always observe the prevalence in reality.
“On the national scene considered as a moral institution” approaches the national scene (taken in its broader meaning; that is, any media coverage of national scope which has a determined plan) as an educational tool.
This essay can also be considered as a governance essay, however, it is not superfluous to have it read by the greater number of people who has to judge about national events almost on a daily basis.
“What can a national scene really perform?” was written to reflect on the plan of what people should know about on a national level.
