Abstract

Alchemie des Exils: Exil als schöpferischer Impuls offers a number of diverse perspec tives on exile, approaches that might, at first glance, seem incompatible. Beginning with essays tided "Pestalozzi in Dewey's Realm: Bauhaus Master Josef Albers at Black Mountain College (1933-1949)" (Karl-H. F?ssl) and "Hannah Arendt's Elaboration of an Existential Republicanism" (Wolfgang Heuer), the volume also includes a piece by David Ketder on "'Weimar and Labor' as Legacy: Ernst Fraenkel, Otto Kahn-Freund, and Franz L. Neumann" and one by Laureen Nussbaum address ing "Robert(o) Schopflocher's Adaptive Response: Via the Argentine Soil Back to His German Roots." These distinct contributions, however, combine with careful readings of literary, philosophical, and cultural texts to generate a thought-provok ing engagement with the questions of how, when, where, and to what extent the impetus of exile meets the boundlessness of creativity.
