As an independent scholar in Hamburg, Warburg led the intellectual circle that included Erwin Panofsky and Ernst Cassirer, pioneers in the investigation of cultural history through the analysis of visual art and the interpretation of symbols. When Warburg wrote this exposition, however, he was a mental patient in a Kreuzlingen sanatorium. Warburg's vulnerable state of mind lends urgency and passion to his discussion of human rationality and cultural demons

"Aby Warburg (1866-1929) belongs to the elite group of scholars and thinkers maturing at the turn of the nineteenth century who shaped the directions to be taken in the following hundred years. He is known not simply for his pioneering scholarship of Italian Renaissance art and culture, but for the totality of his approach, the interest he took in the whole process of what anthropologists now call symbolization, the creation of symbols by societies to represent their world. This book studies a crucial moment in his development, when, in 1895, diverted from his projected studies in Italy, he crossed to New York to attend his brother's wedding, then, encouraged by the contacts he had made with scholars of the Smithsonian Institution, made a trip deep into the Arizona desert to study Hopi culture at first hand. There is no doubt that this anthropological venture, though he did not formulate his thoughts about it on paper until much later, in a lecture of 1923, both reflected and helped to form an approach to the Italian Renaissance that was to revolutionize twentieth-century attitudes to culture. Warburg took photographs documenting the significant stages along his journey, which today make moving and instructive visual accounts of life in the American Southwest, both Western and native. The few images Warburg himself selected to illustrate his lecture of 1923 have long been known, but the remainder of the collection have only recently been gathered together. Reproduced, annotated and catalogued in this book for the first time, these photographs offer a timely opportunity to look not only at precious records of the growing western cities and of the Hopi as they lived a century ago, but the evolution of Warburg's thought and at his relationships with other scholars and with American anthropologists such as James Mooney and Frank H. Cushing. Leading scholars in their field have contributed the six essays in this volume, published in association with the Warburg Institute, London, and introduced by its director, Nicholas Mann. This important book also includes relevant excerpts from Warburg's unpublished diaries, and reproduces more than one hundred of his photographs and drawings." -- Publisher's description

Aby Warburg et l'image en mouvement by Philippe-Alain Michaud( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in French and Portuguese and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warburg asume los riesgos de una "iconología crítica" basándose en la fertilidad de los anacronismos. Frente a la gran narrativa teleológica inaugurada por Vasari, el método de Warburg opera a través de anacronismos y discontinuidades históricas. Mediante procedimientos de montaje, enlaza artefactos paganos con obras maestras del Renacimiento, la astrología del antiguo Oriente Próximo con la Reforma de Lutero, las celebraciones manieristas con las danzas sagradas de los nativos americanos. Michaud afirma que Warburg entiende la historia del arte no sólo como reconocimiento de la radical heterogeneidad de los objetos, sino como descubrimiento de los valores intrínsecos de la obra de arte, tales como las líneas de fractura, las contradicciones, las tensiones y la energía de la magia, del totemismo y del animismo. Desafiando las explicaciones normativas del clasicismo europeo occidental, localiza las fuentes del Renacimiento en el espíritu dionisíaco, en la expresión de movimiento y danza, en la experiencia del trance personificada en la ninfa frenética o la ménade extática

The individual and the cosmos in Renaissance philosophy by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 1977 in German and Multiple languages and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This provocative volume, one of the most important interpretive works on the philosophical thought of the Renaissance, has long been regarded as a classic in its field. Ernst Cassirer here examines the changes brewing in the early stages of the Renaissance, tracing the interdependence of philosophy, language, art, and science; the newfound recognition of individual consciousness; and the great thinkers of the period - from da Vinci and Galileo to Pico della Mirandola and Giordano Bruno. The Individual and the Cosmos in Renaissance Philosophy discusses the importance of fifteenth-century philosopher Nicholas Cusanus, the concepts of freedom and necessity, and the subject-object problem in Renaissance thought."--Pub. desc

Nachhall der Antike : zwei Untersuchungen by Aby Warburg( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die beiden zur Diskussion gestellten Texte 'Italienische Kunst und internationale Astrologie im Palazzo Schifanoja zu Ferrara' von 1922 sowie 'Die italienische Antike im Zeitalter Rembrandts', 1926 vorgetragen und hier zum ersten Mal überhaupt publiziert, kreisen um die wichtige Konstellation von Motivübernahmen und -wirkungen. So geht es in der Untersuchung zu den Fresken des Palazzo Schifanoja nur nebenbei um eine ikonographische Analyse der Bildwelt des 15. Jahrhunderts. Tragend ist der Ansatz, das Vermögen des Menschen zur Symbolschöpfung als stetigen zivilisatorischen Akt zu begreifen. Im Text zu Rembrandt wird dieser Vorgang mit Blick auf seine gesellschaftliche Tragweite hinterfragt
