The Philosophy of Art

The first English translation of a classic text in aesthetics based on the precepts of German Idealism. Schelling systematically treats various forms of art-including music, painting, sculpture, narrative, and poetry-to present a philosophical disclosure of the idea or essence of art itself, an essence that transcends the actual work in history.
