I don't understand the underlined parts in the following two passages. Please help me. Tks.
1. Imagination as a go-between for the faculties of reason and the senses made them play into one another, and it was play that Schiller elevated into the be-all and end-all education.
2. Aesthetic consciousness poses as a transcendental vantage point that accords the work of art a dignity manifested by overstepping what it is not.
