<history of philosophy, biography> German philosopher and poet (1759-1805) who wrote a series of popular "Sturm und Drang" plays, including Die Raeber and Wilhelm Tell. Although he criticized Kant's ethical theory in Ueber Anmuth und Wuerde (On Grace and Dignity) (1793), Schiller applied Kantian notions to the sensuous appreciation of aesthetic experience in Briefe ueber die Aesthetische Erziehung des Menschen Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man (1795). Recommended Reading: Frederick Schiller, Aesthetical and Philosophical Essays (Erlbaum, 2001); Friedrich Von Schiller, Wilhelm Tell, tr. by William F. Mainland (Chicago, 1973); Friedrich Schiller, Five Plays, tr. by Robert David MacDonald (Consortium, 1998); and Patricia Ellen Guenther-Gleason, On Schleiermacher and Gender Politics (Trinity, 1997).
