In Germany Carlo Michelstaedter is one of the great unknowns of the Italian climate of thought around 1900. The Italian-speaking Austrian Michelstaedter, who left both philosophical and poetic works, but first of all saw himself as a painter, is in Germany discussed neither in connection with the contemporary language crisis from Hofmannsthal to Wittgenstein, nor in connection with contemporary expressionist art. This volume is suggestion to close this gap. The contributions by recognized Michelstadt researchers understand themselves as introductions to the respective areas, but at the same time provide genuinely new research approaches: Michelstaedter's philosophy, his poetry and art are presented, analogies to Benjamin and Sartre are drawn, a research report that presents the major trends of the past 30 years facilitates the connection to research from the German-speaking side. The work of this eminent representative of the cultural climate in central Europe at the turn of the 19th-century, which continues to influence the thinking of Italian intellectuals to this day - Claudio Magris and Massimo Cacciari, for example, explicitly refer to Michelstaedter - can now be appreciated for the first time in German-speaking countries.

Abstract

In Germany Carlo Michelstaedter is one of the great unknowns of the Italian climate of thought around 1900. The Italian-speaking Austrian Michelstaedter, who left both philosophical and poetic works, but first of all saw himself as a painter, is in Germany discussed neither in connection with the contemporary language crisis from Hofmannsthal to Wittgenstein, nor in connection with contemporary expressionist art. This volume is suggestion to close this gap. The contributions by recognized Michelstadt researchers understand themselves as introductions to the respective areas, but at the same time provide genuinely new research approaches: Michelstaedter's philosophy, his poetry and art are presented, analogies to Benjamin and Sartre are drawn, a research report that presents the major trends of the past 30 years facilitates the connection to research from the German-speaking side. The work of this eminent representative of the cultural climate in central Europe at the turn of the 19th-century, which continues to influence the thinking of Italian intellectuals to this day - Claudio Magris and Massimo Cacciari, for example, explicitly refer to Michelstaedter - can now be appreciated for the first time in German-speaking countries.
