Fichte), on the other hand he has been influencing to many ideas. Schellings thoughts about philosophy and art have a key importance to understand the German Idealist and German Romantic Philosophy. Schellings Philosophy is placed as traditional in German Idealist Philosophy. In this work it is argued that, Schellings philosophy has influence on a more extensive environment.The writings of Schelling, mark the peak in the estimation of arts role for philosophy. In a line of thought beginning in Kant and continuing on through Schelling, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Adorno, art is seen as the unique sphere. The present study intends to show that the importance of art in Schellings philosopy and the interaction with antecedents and successors of his idea about art. My concern here is particularly Schellings contribution to philosophy of art.
