Example text

For as we will see, Hölderlin and Hegel reject Schiller’s suggested resolution of the dichotomy, taking play to be no more than an anthropological solution that preserves Kantian dualism and provides no fundamental answer at the philosophical level. In their view, only a philosophical solution can determine the concrete historical reality, so that the practical-anthropological description of man will correspond to the theoretical description, a correspondence that will allow for re-emergence of the ideal of organic unity whose loss Schiller so deplores.

We can no longer turn to nature as an anchor for morality, and it is precisely for that reason that we have lost our oneness with nature, or to put it more accurately, we have lost the possibility of a harmonious relationship with nature. This loss forces us either to accept freedom and autonomy without unity, or, to seek a way to restore unity on the basis of a commitment to freedom and autonomy. Hölderlin considers himself obliged to take the second path, and this determines his poetic-philosophic program.
