Abstract
Juigchen in den adel der menschlijke natuur is a study on the sublime in the Netherlands. I discuss theoretical contributions on the sublime, written in Dutch, between 1770 and 1830, in the light of the international context (Longinus, N. Boileau, E. Burke, I. Kant, F. Schiller). In the latter half of the 18th century these contributions are all translations of German and English texts (R.M. van Goens, H. van Alphen, P. Loosjes, J.F. Hennert, H. Bosscha translated works by M. Mendelssohn, F.J. Riedel, J. Beattie, and H. Blair); in the early 19th century there is a small but very active group of scholars trying to popularize the philosophy of Kant. In this group the first originally Dutch contributions are to be found (P. van Hemert, T. van Swinderen, J.F.L. Schröder). The final two chapters are devoted to the most original Dutch discussions of the sublime. Johannes Kinker thinks through Schiller’s aesthetic idealism and fuses the sublime and beautiful into the ideally beautiful. Willem Bilderdijk dismisses all Enlightenment philosophies and incorporates Longinus’ insights into his own philosophy of (religious) feeling.
