The article attempts to show the links between Schiller's thought and Nietzsche's philosophy. In the first part it presents the influence of Schiller's historiosophy on Nietzsche's view of modernity and his critical diagnosis of modernity (the problem of cultural duality of modernity, of nihilism). In the second part it shows the influence of Schiller's thought on shaping a positive project of Nietzsche's philosophy (the idea of creative unity of man's existence, aestheticism).
