When Schubart's Lehrbuch der schönen Wissenschaften was published in 1777, the supposed author distanced himself from the work, complaining that the edition by one of his students had reduced it to a "skeleton."In 1781, the philosopher Michael Hißmann published a revised edition of this book with many additional explanations and references of his own. The following article reconstructs the impact of this book and the history of its reception, comparing the two different versions published by the two dissimilar editors and questions the hermeneutical intention to identify Schubart's own aesthetic principles and positions.
