The paper focuses on the analogy between "the double-head" in Schiller's writings and Bergson's "double-head" of religion and morals. The author's suggestion is that there is an intrinsic relation between the material and formal instinct in Schiller's conception and Bergson's static and dynamic religions. In his view there is a certain analogy between the Nietzschean Appolonian principle and Bergson's "fabulatory function" of reason. His conclusion is that this analogy is one of the reasons, why Bergson explores the presence of nature in the works of art, and the necessity to serach for it just in them.
