Contributions contain study on Schiller’s writings and his paintings on the subject of ethical sentimentalism, Romantic aesthetics, Friedrich Schlegel, Beethoven, Huizinga and Greenberg; philosophers reminiscent of Kierkegaard, Benjamin, Heidegger and Adorno; and thematic techniques to Darwinism and Naturalism, sleek tragedy, postmodern realism and philosophical anthropology from the eighteenth century to the current day. This publication relies on papers given at a global symposium held below the auspices of the collage of Nottingham on the Institute of German and Romance reviews, London, in September 2009
