(p.95) 5 Aesthetics, Religion, and Pedagogics
Late German Idealism

Frederick C. Beiser

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 attempts to summarize and contextualize Trendelenburg’s aesthetics, philosophy of religion and pedagogics. Aesthetics was very important for Trendelenburg, and he made an original contribution to aesthetics in its attempt to fuse the concepts of the sublime and the beautiful, which had been clearly distinguished by almost everyone. Trendelenburg’s philosophy of religion was an attempt to synthesize two apparently conflicting influences upon him: Platonism and Protestantism. Although Trendelenburg wrote little on pedagogics, much of his life was devoted to education, not only in the University of Berlin but also in the Prussian school system.

Keywords:   Sublime, beautiful, Niobe, Protestantism
