Lenkung der Dinge – Magie, Kunst und Politik in der Frühen Neuzeit
Hrsg. von Stefan Bayer, Kirsten Dickhaut und Irene Herzog
In the course of the humanistic examination of his position in the cosmos, man in the early modern period also reformulates his radius of action. The notion of the 'control of things' based on the causality concept, rooted in a hierarchical structure at the top of which magicians, political rulers or and artists appear as sovereigns of action, describes the possibilities of successful and effective action in magic, politics, and art. The discussion in literary texts, in the arts, and in treatises on statecraft in the early modern period is centered around the possibility and nature of the controllability of external as well as internal nature, of objects, actions, and also of people's perception and fate. The contributions in this volume discuss the concept of the 'control of things' in literature and art against the background of their historical-cultural and epistemological context.
