Received wisdom has it that with his life s crisis in 1801 Kleist turned his back on the philosophy of the Enlightenment and became a poet of the irrational and abyssal- in opposition to this, the present study shows that it is above all a philosophical problem to which Kleist turns in his writings until the abrupt end of his creative work - the question of whether man can be motivated to action by moral principles.
