Abstract

The intention of this paper is to give a correct inside in the review of the discussed periods. It tries to achieve this by using the means of Art History and Political History to get an exact inside. The allegorical representation of the Austria in this case is the means to get it. It stands for the specific aspects of the time, so for instance the dynastic Austria with the crown of Emperor Rudolph II. meaning the predominance of the ruling Habsburgs, the civic Austria with the mural crown showing the ideas of the middle class, especially in the German speaking parts of the country, with the acceptance of the predominance of the state over the ruler, according to Hegel, or also the victorious Austria with the laurel wreath as a symbol of the conquest of the revolution of 1848. The Habsburg monarchy including many different nations was the proper breeding ground of dissatisfaction and diversified nationalistic ideas. So the representation of the Austria is an important means of showing these ideas. The periods the paper is working on are roughly speaking starting with the time of the beginning of the position of the monarchy as one of the ruling powers of Europe until her dissolution and the end of World War I. Different aspects of art history are also dealt with. So for example the 13 portraits of Habsburg rulers in the Museum Nordico at Linz, which are positioned in the time of Rudolph II. and mark the beginning of the representation of the allegory of the Austria, or the designs for monuments by Otto Wagner which are dealt with in the many books on this architect only as a side issue, whereas they are a very important part of wagners work and show his national feelings, towards his fatherland. It is furthermore interesting to look at the nationalistic problems shown in this paper and compare them with contemporary Europe and the overcoming of them. These ideas are not new, the date back to the 19th and especially the beginning of the 20th century when the Monarchy tried to overcome the problems with the slogan of Großösterreich (Greater Austria). During World War one followed the idea of Mitteleuropa (Central Europe) including Turkey and the institution of a Polish State to hold off revolutionary Russia

Abstract

Quelle force naturelle pouvait, mieux que le volcan, devenir la métaphore vive de l'enthousiasme poétique ? Auteur du paysage qu'il remodèle après l'avoir détruit, sculpteur de laves autant qu'objet pittoresque, le volcan est dans la littérature un actant essentiel, un relais de l'auteur, comme le montre ce voyage dans la mémoire des représentations volcaniques.

Abstract

It’s a platitude – which only a philosopher would dream of denying – that whereas words are connected to what they represent merely by arbitrary conventions, pictures are connected to what they represent by resemblance. The most important difference between my portrait and my name, for example, is that whereas my portrait and I are connected by my portrait’s resemblance to me, my name and I are connected merely by an arbitrary convention. The first aim of this book is to defend this platitude from the apparently compelling objections raised against it, by analysing depiction in a way which reveals how it is mediated by resemblance. It’s natural to contrast the platitude that depiction is mediated by resemblance, which emphasises the differences between depictive and descriptive representation, with an extremely close analogy between depiction and description, which emphasises the similarities between depictive and descriptive representation. Whereas the platitude emphasises that the connection between my portrait and me is natural in a way the connection between my name and me is not, the analogy emphasises the contingency of the connection between my portrait and me. Nevertheless, the second aim of this book is to defend an extremely close analogy between depiction and description. The strategy of the book is to argue that the apparently compelling objections raised against the platitude that depiction is mediated by resemblance are manifestations of more general problems, which are familiar from the philosophy of language. These problems, it argues, can be resolved by answers analogous to their counterparts in the philosophy of language, without rejecting the platitude. So the combination of the platitude that depiction is mediated by resemblance with a close analogy between depiction and description turns out to be a compelling theory of depiction, which combines the virtues of common sense with the insights of its detractors.

Abstract

The appearance and development of a ""Four Nations"" slant on British history over the last two decades has in many ways pointed up ""the Union"" as an essential component of the national history or histories of the British Isles. ""Four Nations"" historians, however, have tended to focus exclusively on the United Kingdom as the core of either a nascent or a now defunct Empire. History is variously invoked to account for the emergence of the British dynastic state, explain its (to some) puzzling en...

Abstract

Dans un article fondateur paru en 1934, Marcel Mauss invitait anthropologues, sociologues et historiens à étendre leurs investigations aux techniques corporelles, désignant par cette expression les façons dont les hommes se servent de leur corps dans une société donnée. Cet art d'utiliser son corps varie d'une société à une autre, d'une époque à une autre : c'est pourquoi penser le corps ou le représenter ne se réduisent pas à une somme de connaissances scientifiques, mais relèvent bien d'une...

Abstract

For the first time in scholarly art history we can offer now a systematical overview on the representation of night in her manifold appearances and manifestations, attributes and connections covering the time from the Ancient Orient, the Greek, the Roman World Empire, Early Christian, Middle Ages and Renaissance up to the Baroque. Intended is a sequel from the Enlightenment and the Romantic Movement up to modern times.Despite arranging the subject-matter in historical sections according to their chronological order it was necessary to take a not one-sided approach and to cope with thorough studies of single phenomenons. Therefore, viewpoints from many neighbour fields influenced interpretation and analysis. Far beyond their aesthetical function representations of night are linked as well as to literature as to religious, philosophical, astrological and theological ideas, e.g. night ranked in ancient times as the very - feminine - origin of entity which from arose the masculine day. Various like her appearances are also her colours. The Baroque era did not connect the night with black or blue as earlier periods did but with brown instead. Night may show herself as personification or as "natural" night, for example, as a moon landscape. The oldest known Nachtstück, a fisherboat on a lake with reed and crescent, has been preserved on a pre-babylonian seal done in the beginning of the third millenium B.C. Night may symbolize the positive aspects of life, yet also stands for threatening powers (death, witchcraft, nightmare) and low instincts (base eroticism): Sometimes both is valid like in the case of sleep. Night and light belong together. In drawing from the shadow produced by a source of light in a dark room according to an old belief visual art came into existence. Among the newly acquired findings stands out the Nachtfleiß (diligence at night) which formed a much appreciated theme of pictures in the Renaissance. This means the nocturnal labor of princes, artists and scientists, who in burning the midnight oil rise above ordinary people. The study not only integrates into a survey many works of eminent artists but also investigates and explains with regard to specific categories dealing among others with Michelangelo ("…I am a child of night"), Raphael, El Greco, Rubens and Caravaggio. Additionally several hitherto little known or entirely neglected paintings, drawings, prints and sculptural works are widening the point of view. While project work still was in progress some possibilities of cooperation with relevant exhibitions and broadcasts were utilized. B.Borchhardt's catalogue contributions ("Die Nacht", Munich 1998, "Nightscapes", Ulm 2001) summarize in due form the most important insights.

Abstract

Si la figure du marginal s'avère très répandue dans la littérature, la notion même de marginalité appelle quelques éclaircissements. Ce numéro des Recherches sur l'imaginaire entend éclairer les multiples facettes de la marginalité et appréhender un peu mieux la figure du marginal dans le paysage littéraire.

Abstract

Depuis une vingtaine d'années se sont multipliés les ouvrages, colloques, thèses, portant sur les « images de l'Autre », et à cette multiplicité viennent s'ajouter les innombrables questionnements sur « l'Identité ». Nul ne songerait à nier que les problématiques associées aux interactions entre Soi et l'Autre constituent le nœud du questionnement. C'est bien dans les modes d'identification et les modes de relation que les stéréotypes jouent leur rôle le plus évident : comment se pose-t-on ou...

Abstract

Parmi les questions auxquelles l’histoire de la Révolution française n’a pas donné de réponses définitives, la définition « du » politique demeure toujours irrésolue. Cette indécision est d’autant plus grande que l’historiographie actuelle ne s’intéresse plus seulement aux « grands » hommes mais qu’elle prend en compte les multiples interventions dans le « domaine politique ». Entrent en ligne de compte toutes les actions symboliques et culturelles qui donnent du sens à la période. Au premier...
