    Aims and Scope

    Symbolic Articulation has two philosophical and terminological sources: Ernst Cassirer's famous "Philosophy of Symbolic Forms" and Wilhelm von Humboldt's lesser known theory of articulation as both a material and conceptual activity. Moving from this background, the authors focus on language and images as the two fundamental means of world appropriation in order to grasp their very specificity through the specificity of their articulation. In a so-far unique cooperation between philosophy, linguistics, art history and ancient studies, the volume intends to broaden a notion of language and images that stresses their entangled and embodied nature within the span of acting and schematizing and thereby to contribute to a new anthropological take on culture and symbolic processes.
