Remembering John Michael Krois

Monday, November 15th, 2010

We would like to remember John Michael Krois
for his unremitting work as a scholar in the Cassirer studies,
for having put historiographical research at the service of philosophical research,
and having shared his generous and most valuable ideas with us.

Philosophy and Iconology (I-2008)

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

The first number of Cassirer Studies sketches a picture of the present relation between the Philosophy of Symbolic Forms and Iconology, by examining new texts and posthumous materials which come on top of the classical literature concerning the Cassirer-Warburg dialogue.
The consolidated and historicized cultural image of their relationship, emblematically reflected by the “structure” of the Bibliothek Warburg, is awakened by this unprecedented topography, which accounts for their strenuous effort to construct a common line of thought: the mythical/symbolical thought, between the permanence of myth (Cassirer) and the survival of primitive paganism (Warburg); the conception of the “work”, layered on different structural niveaux; the interpretation of Giordano Bruno.
