About this product
- DescriptionThough inspired by a Pafskyan legacy, this book diverges at certain points from Erwin Pafsky's declared objectives, and calls attention to several of aspects that were until w less accentuated in his intellectual reception. Insisting on the importance of icology as a method for art history and the humanities in general, it shows how examining this promotes a cooperation between the history of art and the history of philosophy. It discusses whether Pafsky's method could be of use for general questions in the epistemology of the historical sciences that examine human works. Figural Philology also shows that Pafsky shares affinities with twentieth-century romance philology. A reading of Pafsky's work alongside the philological enterprise of Erich Auerbach and several other authors demonstrates that a proper appropriation of the philological impulse can provide a way out of the methodological antimony still hanging between hyper-formalist and hyper-theoretical approaches to the history of art.
