Abstract

Within the framework of Jungian archetypal psychology and utilizing Karl Kerényi's theories on Hermes and the archetypal symbolism of mother and daughter, this book combines the mythopoeic and psychoanalytical approaches in interpreting Krull's development as both a mythic identification with Hermes and an odyssey into the archaic depths of the Collective Unconscious. As a counterpart to the thematic line of investigation, detailed stylistic analyses aim at pointing out significant correspondences between form and content.

Abstract

This letter contains Lessing's most explicit observations on the distinction between poetry and prose as well as a unique proposal for emending Aristotle's interpretation of the dramatic method. Although both arguments are formulated in terms of Abbé Dubos' theory of signs, Lessing significantly modifies Dubos' doctrine by ideas derived from Alexander Baumgarten, Moses Mendelssohn, and Edmund Burke. An analysis of these modifications provides the framework for a critique of Lessing's aesthetic philosophy as a whole.

Abstract

Relying on an edition of Novalis' notebooks which includes much of the author's scientific and philosophical musings, Neubauer's study evaluates Novalis' outline for a creative science and philosophical background of the eighteenth century. Concentrating on his study of physiology and medicine, this work illuminates Novalis' changing perspectives on the relationship between the imagination and the material world, and whether a synthesis between the two is possible.
