Heinrich Wölfflin: an intellectual biography

Heinrich Wolfflin (1864-1945) was of lasting importance for the discipline of art history. The object of this dissertation is to attempt to understand Wolfflin's contribution in its original context. His intellectual development is reconstructed on the basis of unpublished journals, correspondence and other documents at the University of Basel, Switzerland. One important result is the discovery of the breadth of the sources for his concepts: not just in the historian Jacob Burckhardt, but in the philosopher Wilhelm Dilthey, the classical archaeologist Heinrich Brunn, the aesthetician Johannes Volkelt, the philologists August Bockh and Eduard Wolfflin (his father), and the artist Adolf von Hildebrand, to name a few. Each added an essential ingredient to Wolfflin's theory of art.
