The Manifesto and the Novel
To understand what is at stake in the question of autonomy, it is necessary to follow its development as an issue in the aesthetics of Kant, Schiller, and Novalis, especially in regard to the form and temporality of the work in which autonomy emerges, as is seen in the example of the manifesto. The unstable nature of the autonomy that arises from this account is exemplified in the position of prose in post-Kantian thought, which is understood by Hegel as part of the secularisation of the absolute and by Benjamin in his readings of Goethe and the Romantics as a singular historical actualisation of the relation between the truth-content and the material-content of the work.
