Summary/Abstract: The basis of the edition is a new version of the text about Schiller, which Marek J. Siemek worked on in the last years of his life. Compared to the known monograph published in the series Thoughts and People (Universal Knowledge, 1970), the volume has been enriched with a critical apparatus and philosophical threads appearing in the author's considerations in later years. The author presents Schiller from a site less known to the Polish reader: not as a poet and playwright, but as a philosopher - a pupil of enlightenment exceeding the ideological horizons of the era, the reader and Kant's original interpreter. He discusses his reflections on the sense of history, attitude to the Greek ideal, as well as the most famous philosophical ideas - concepts of naive and sentimental poetry and the project of aesthetic education.
