The Warburg Institute, founded in the 1920s in Hamburg by art and cultural historian Aby Warburg, is a pioneering institution that has greatly shaped the fields of art, myth, religion, medicine, philosophy, and intellectual history. When, in 1933, the institute was moved to London to escape the Nazis, its research and legacy were protected and further developed by a network of researchers dispersed throughout the UK, the US, and Canada. The first interdisciplinary study of the Warburg network as an arena of intellectual transmission, transformation, and exchange, this volume reveals the dynamics, agencies, and actors at play in the development of the Warburg Institute's program and output, with a specific focus on the role of Raymond Klibansky (1905-2005) in the institute's major ventures. Among these collective projects of the institute are the famous Saturn and Melancholy, which blends art history with philosophical and cultural history, and the Latin and Arabic Corpus Platonicum Medii Aevi series, which contributed to research on the continuity of Platonic thought. Consulting published and unpublished sources including correspondences, memories, and diaries of affiliated scholars, the essays explore the history of the Warburg Library as a vital cultural institution and the personal and intellectual relationships of the researchers devoted to it. From Hamburg to London to Montreal, Raymond Klibansky and the Warburg Library Network takes readers on a journey into more than forty years of intellectual life at one of the most prestigious cultural research institutes. Contributors include Philippe Despoix (Universite de Montreal), Georges Leroux (UQAM), Eric Mechoulan (Universite de Montreal), Elisabeth Otto (Universite de Montreal), Elizabeth Sears (University of Michigan), Davide Stimilli (University of Colorado at Boulder), Jillian Tomm (Universite de Montreal), Martin Treml (Zentrum fur Literatur- und Kulturforschung Berlin), Jean-Philippe Uzel (UQAM), Regina Weber (DLA Marbach), Claudia Wedepohl (The Warburg Institute London), and Graham Whitaker (Glasgow University)

Anmeldelser

"Fresh and original, Raymond Klibansky and the Warburg Library Network increases our knowledge of an important group of scholars around a very meaningful institution, and especially Klibansky's personality and work, which deserves great attention." Irene Kajon, Sapienza Università di Roma

"Raymond Klibansky and the Warburg Library Network is a very strong collection with contributions by eminent scholars in their fields. The structure invites a variety of perspectives on Klibansky and the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg that are biographical, methodological, and intellectual-historical, but it is never guilty of miscellany or diffuse eclecticism. An outstanding explanatory critical introduction details Klibansky's peregrinations and sometimes uncertain or agonistic relationships with the KBW without losing sight of his crucial role in the post-exile continuity of that institution." Ned Curthoys, University of Western Australia
