Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Von Schelling (1775-1854) was once a colleague of Hegel, Holderlin, Fichte, Goethe, Schlegel, and Schiller. regularly a champion of Romanticism, Schelling endorsed a philosophy which emphasised instinct over cause, which maintained aesthetics and the artistic mind's eye to be of the top worth.
