Abstract

This monograph discusses the importance of A. L. Hülsen's only book for the history of early German idealism. The Wissenschaftslehre is Fichte's ""response"" to the objections of Schulze-Aenesidemus to Reinhold's early Elementarphilosophie. Hülsen, a Fichtean thinker, restructured many aspects of Reinhold's system which Fichte left intact. In 1797, Fichte recognized Hülsen as a partner in the development of his system, thus acknowledging his contribution to the emergence of German idealism.

Abstract

Kreuzenstein Castle was built between 1874 and 1906 on the ruins of a medieval fortress. It was conceived as a family mausoleum and venue for preserving and displaying the owner’s collection of medieval art, but it can also be interpreted as the idealized vision of a medieval castle from the perspective of the 19th century. This study clarifies to what extent our view of the medieval castle is contingent on the faults, fractures and “constructs” of modernity.

Abstract

De l’architecture aux arts décoratifs et de la peinture au théâtre, ce recueil de textes traite d’œuvres dialoguant avec le patrimoine égyptien dans toutes ses composantes. La notion « d’égyptianisme » se trouve ainsi examinée dans la plus large variété de ses acceptions artistiques, architecturales et critiques, dans le monde occidental comme en Égypte. Les textes révèlent un historicisme artistique de veine égyptienne qui ne se cantonnerait ni à la référence antique, ni au monde occidental : nombreux sont les peintres, les sculpteurs, les cinéastes, les architectes… d’Égypte à avoir intégré des représentations du passé national – pharaonique, copte, médiéval, ottoman, et désormais khédivial ou nassérien – dans leur pratique artistique. À l’encontre de l’image habituelle de l’Égyptomanie, c’est un panorama plus riche et plus diversifié qui prend corps ici à travers divers médias et contextes nationaux. Le présent recueil trouve sa source dans un colloque international organisé à la faveur de la venue à Paris de l’exposition « Le théorème de Néfertiti : itinéraire de l’œuvre d’art, la création des icônes » présentée à l’Institut du monde arabe en 2013. Ce colloque s’est tenu les 26 et 27 juin 2013 en partenariat avec Mathaf : Arab Museum of Modern Art (Doha) sous l’intitulé « L’Égypte en ses miroirs ; art, architecture et critique, à demeure et au-delà (XIXe-XXe siècles) ».

Abstract

The study analyses Cold War discourses in Austrian post-war literature, a subject that so far has been neglected in Austrian literary history. Through extensive research, 50 mainly unknown or little acknowledged novels, stories, plays and scenes were discovered which discuss phenomena of the Cold War that defined the first post-war decades. The theoretical focus on New Historicism allows an analysis of a broad spectrum of thematic clusters, images, discursive constellations and narratives which are contextualised both in national and international Cold War discourse./ In 15 chapters, the study discusses the discursive patterns of more than 50 rather unknown books from Austrian literature from the period 1945 to 1966, such as constructions and imaginations of borders, fictive travels behind the Iron Curtain, the Gulag, and metaphors of disease and narratives of espionage. These discourse patterns are positioned within the context of the Cold War.

Abstract

This publication documents the life and work of the architect Rolf Geyling (1884-1952), who was a former student of Otto Wagner and started his career in Vienna and Bucharest before the First World War broke out. During the war Geyling documented his experiences as an officer of the Habsburger Monarchy with photographs and a detailed diary, which he continued during his imprisonment in Siberia. After five years in several camps - most recently in Vladivostok - Geyling fled to Tianjin in China, where he successfully established himself as an architect until the period of Mao Tse-tung and was particularly involved in the development of modern architecture in northern China.

Abstract

Exploring the intricacy and complexity of Walter Pater’s prose, Transfigured World challenges traditional approaches to Pater and shows precise ways in which the form of his prose expresses its content. Carolyn Williams asserts that Pater’s aestheticism and his historicism should be understood as dialectically interrelated critical strategies, inextricable from each other in practice. Williams discusses the explicit and embedded narratives that play a crucial role in Pater’s aesthetic criticism and examines the figures that compose these narratives, including rhetorical tropes, structures of argument such as genealogy, and historical or fictional personae.
