Sublime’ by Schiller. Then try to answer the questions in relation to this passage without making (too much) reference to the rest of the text, please.
(1) What is according to Schiller in this passage the difference between the beautiful and the sublime?
How does this relate to Kant’s distinction?
(2) What does Schiller mean when he says ‘Nature has even employed a sensuous means of teaching us that we are more than merely sensuous’? How does this differ from Kant’s analysis of the sublime?
(3) Schiller talks about the ‘physical man’ being crushed to the ground. What does this mean and (considering also other parts of the text) how does it relate to the frustration and humiliation that we saw were essential moments of the experience of the sublime in Kant?
