Cy Twombly, one of the most important American artists of the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, inscribed written notations up to complete poems into his works during almost his entire creative period.
For the first time, a catalog of all inscribed works by Cy Twombly is now available in five opulent volumes, supplemented by an introductory volume. All inscriptions have been transcribed and placed in the context of their sources.
The publication of the notations makes the scriptural clearly recognizable for the first time as an equal element in the structure of the work and an essential medium of signification in Twombly’s pictorial world. The introductory volume, which evaluates the results of the transcription and attribution, analyzes the development and intertextual referentiality of the inscriptions, their discursive and iconic aspects, and the manifold constellations of reference that the written and the painted enter into on the picture surface.
The publication is in English.

Alle Einschreibungen wurden transkribiert und in den Kontext ihrer Quellen gestellt.
Approaches to Eric Voegelin’s Political Philosophy
The first volume of this new yearbook focuses on Eric Voegelin’s 1952 paper “New Science of Politics”, its significance and enduring relevance.
Eric Voegelin’s “New Science of Politics” is today considered a classic of recent political philosophy, albeit a controversial one. As soon as it was published, the book caused a sensation, especially because of its relatively sharp criticism of the normative foundations of Western modernity. In doing so, Voegelin places the question of the ambiguity of the concept of representation and its claim to truth at the center of his reflections. The contributions to this volume aim to shed light on how fruitful and topical this perspective still is today from various perspectives. The contributions come from authors of different disciplines, including political science, philosophy, and sociology. In addition to a classification of the “New Science of Politics” in Voegelin’s oeuvre as a whole, the volume primarily inquires into the systematically interesting points of contact, which are also of interest beyond Voegelin’s reception.
Medicine and Writing in the Early Eighteenth Century
Author: Allan Ingram
This book explores the impacts, particularly on their writing, of the serious illnesses of Swift and Pope, alongside their respective understandings of health issues and within their period context.
Both Swift and Pope spent most of their lives suffering from serious illness, Ménière’s Disease (Swift) and Pott’s Disease (Pope). This was at a time when medical understanding of these conditions was minimal. This book examines the effects of illness on each writer’s relations with doctors, treatment, and medicine more widely, and how far and in what ways their own experiences affected their writing. The book explains the contemporary medical context and subsequent specialist knowledge of the illnesses, and places each alongside both writers’ attempts to come to terms with their suffering, not least with respect to the different forms and styles of their works. Each writer’s extensive correspondence is drawn on, as well as a range of texts.

Forgetting and Forgetfulness in Modern Science
Author: Oliver Dimbath
The book offers a fundamental view on the problem of forgetting in sociology in general and within sociology of knowledge. Furthermore it focuses – as a case study – on the field of modern science. With recourse to the term ‚oblivionism‘, originally introduced with ironic-critical intent by the german romance scholar Harald Weinrich, it analyzes the fundamental and multifaceted problem of the loss of knowledge in the field of science.
A declarative-reflective, an incorporated-practical and an objectified-technical memory motif is at the centre. These form the basis for the development of the three forms of forgetting that are also central to modern science: forgetfulness, wanting to forget and, ultimately, making one forget.
