This study intends to explain the interpretation and criticism from Schiller to Kant. Approaching both authors, it will determined what are the concordant fundamentals between them and what new values Schiller introduces in the problematic of moral and of anthropology without contradicting Kant's word. It will also be seen how Schiller's criticism of moral formalism uses Kant's principles as its base. Furthermore, this study aims to understand how the conception of men as a ludic being for Schiller does not contradict the Kantian one. And also, how such conception does not release the man in any duties present in the moral, on the contrary, Schiller accepts the Kantian legacy of conflict between play and moral autonomy. However, in order to manage the conflict between play and moral and enable a certain degree of harmony between them in theman's interior and in the relationship between them, Schiller introduces new elements such as the influence of beauty and the pedagogue artist, thinking according to values that transcend the Kantian ones. In this context, what will be the value of these new values according to the Kantian standard of value?
