The attitudes of Prague naturalists from the second half of the 18th century to Schone Wissenschaften and Aesthetics have not yet been the subject of systematic research. One exception might be the clashes between supporters of the most important Bohemian naturalist Ignaz von Born (1742-1791) and supporters of the University Professor of Schone Wissenschaften Karl Heinrich Seibt (1735-1806), which occurred in the first half of the 1770s. This study investigates the views of Bohemian naturalists during the period starting with the introduction of natural sciences at Prague University in the 1750s until the end of the 18th century when these disciplines came to enjoy a high reputation. The approach adopted here is based on an analysis of the printed and archival materials with the aim of drawing attention to the as yet unknown circumstances, together with the novel approach to traditional topics, headed by the above mentioned dispute between Born and Seibt's supporters.
