Theory of Figuration (II-2009)

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

We are happy to inform you that the second issue of Cassirer Studies has just come out with the title “Theory of Figuration”.
Each contribution brings a new perspective to bear on the studies concerning Cassirer’s three functions Ausdruck, Darstellung, Bedeutung, which still stands as a boundary topic between the Philosophy of Symbolic Forms and the theories of representation in general, as they all tend towards a “theory of figuration” as such.

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.
