This article considers Karl Heinrich Seibt's (1735-1806) plan for a course in aesthetics at Prague University. First, using archive materials, it presents an historical introduction to the establishment of the chair in 1763. Michael Wogerbauer then compares the linguistic 'modernity' of the manuscript-draft of the syllabus (1763) with the printed version (1764), and Tomas Hlobil analyses the concept of the 'schoene Wissenschaften', which Seibt used in the two texts in four different ways.
