This chapter follows up on the reading of Kant in Chapter 2 to demonstrate that the aporetic structure of the Kantian sublime leaves traces both in the thought of Fichte and in the aesthetic theory of Schiller. It shows how Fichte and, in particular, Schiller bring to resolution Kant's unresolvable problematic of the sublime by resorting to what is in fact the beautiful — thus turning themselves into ‘aesthetic ideologists’.

Keywords:   Paul de Man, aesthetic ideology, Kant, sublime, Fichte, Schiller
