Abstract

This book focuses on Aby Warburg (1866-1929), one of the legendary figures of twentieth century cultural history. His collection, which is now housed in the Warburg Institute of the University of London, bears witness to his idiosyncratic approach to a psychology of symbolism and explores the Nachleben of classical antiquity in its manifold cultural legacy. This collection of essays offers the first translation of one of Warburg's key essays, the Gombrich lecture, described by Carlo Ginzburg as "the richest and most penetrating interpretation of Warburg" and original essays on Warburg's astrology, his Mnemosyne project and his favourite topic of festivals.
