Abstract: This thesis examines the relationship between beauty and morality in Friedrich Schiller's notion of aesthetic education (as presented in his Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man). By first looking back to Kant's influence on Schiller, the paper then takes a more profound look at Schiller's agreements with and departures from Kant, as well as his ideas on freedom and play. The final portion of the paper considers aesthetic education (and its moral goals) as it might be put into practice, using the educational theory of Rudolf Steiner and the development of his Waldorf School as its central focus.
