I have overcome this unnatural separation, which stamps our culture with an effeminate character, and my endeavor is to impart my cure to other •= What Dilthey's brief references to Humboldt, Goethe, Schiller, and the Schlegels paint to is the expansion of the nation of form from the strictly objective sense of classical drama. 44 If today we were to attempt to ascertain the mental states which produce and manifest themselves in literary forms, then only a psychology which leads us to recognize the historical nature of man could do so.

And yet its positive formulation, which went beyond that of Schiller, has blurred the boundaries that separate the aesthetic vivacity of intuition from scientific thought and philosophic knowledge. The second tenet of German aesthetics provides the basic foundation for Schiller's law. It was convincingly enunciated by Kant in his analyses of taste and pleasure.

We cannot follow idealistic aesthetics when it defines the essence and function of art in terms of the highest ideal of art that we are capable of conceiving today.
