    Poetics as a Presupposition of Philosophy: Hannah Arendt's Denktagebuch.Sigrid Weigel - 2009 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2009 (146):97-110.
    The Denktagebuch, kept by Hannah Arendt from 1950 until 1973, is not only a fascinating parergon, or secondary work, containing many reflections, observations, and notes on other articles that had not, or not yet, taken on their finished form as essays or books. It presents the foundations and premises of her writing that originate from her notebooks—foundations in a literal sense, i.e., those writings that preceded the author's work in political theory. Several entries contain methodological reflections, explanations of definitions, and (...)

  4. Body-and Image-Space: Re-Reading Walter Benjamin.Sigrid Weigel - 1996 - New York: Routledge.
    The last decade has seen a new wave of interest in philosophical and theoretical circles in the writings of Walter Benjamin. In _Body-and Image-Space_ Sigrid Weigel, one of Germany's leading feminist theorists and a renowned commentator on the work of Walter Benjamin, argues that the reception of his work has so far overlooked a crucial aspect of his thought - his use of images. Weigel shows that it is precisely his practice of thinking in images that holds the key to (...)

    Walter Benjamin: Images, the Creaturely, and the Holy.Sigrid Weigel - 2013 - Stanford University Press.
    Arguing that the importance of painting and other visual art for Benjamin's epistemology has yet to be appreciated, Weigel undertakes the first systematic analysis of their significance to his thought. She does so by exploring Benjamin's dialectics of secularization, an approach that allows Benjamin to explore the simultaneous distance from and orientation towards revelation and to deal with the difference and tensions between religious and profane ideas. In the process, Weigel identifies the double reference of 'life' to both nature and (...)

    Empathy: Epistemic Problems and Cultural-Historical Perspectives of a Cross-Disciplinary Concept.Vanessa Lux & Sigrid Weigel (eds.) - 2017 - London: Imprint: Palgrave Macmillan.
    This book digs into the complex archaeology of empathy illuminating controversies, epistemic problems and unanswered questions encapsulated within its cross-disciplinary history. The authors ask how a neutral innate capacity to directly understand the actions and feelings of others becomes charged with emotion and moral values associated with altruism or caregiving. They explore how the discovery of the mirror neuron system and its interpretation as the neurobiological basis of empathy has stimulated such an enormous body of research and how in a (...)

    The readability of images (and) of history: Laudatio on the occasion of the awarding of the Adorno prize (2015) to Georges didi-huberman.Jan Vanvelk, Michiel Rys & Sigrid Weigel - 2018 - Angelaki 23 (4):42-46.
    This text was delivered as the laudatory speech on the occasion of Didi-Huberman’s receipt of the Adorno prize in 2015. The influence of Adorno’s work on Didi-Huberman’s methodology is clarified, especially Adorno’s reflections on montage, the essayistic style and the anachronism of time. Didi-Huberman thematizes and analyses anachronism as a specific time structure of images. His works stress the similarity of images with the literary montage technique to develop a comprehensive theory of the readability of images – a practice in (...)

    Between Creation and Last Judgement, the Creaturely and the Holy: Benjamin and Secularization.Sigrid Weigel - 2009 - Paragraph 32 (3):359-381.
    This article analyses how Benjamin takes Kraus's reference to the creaturely as a symptom of an ahistorical attitude which projects the state of genesis, i.e. the world of God's creatures, into history. It reads the essay on Karl Kraus as a main site for Benjamin's dialectical approach to secularization, which is characterized by the distance both from genesis and redemption. The awareness of the fundamental difference which separates human concepts from biblical ideas or words which may be observed in many (...)

    The caesura of tragedy, more precisely tragedy as the scene of a caesura upon which an interruption occurs in the relation between divine grounds and human will, stands at the center of Susan Taubes's confrontation with tragedy. Moving beyond an explication of generic history, she analyzed the “Nature of Tragedy” (1953) as a phenomenon emerging from a cultural-historical threshold situation, illuminating tragedy's origins in the framework of her approach to ritual, religion, and philosophy. In respect to the history of theory, (...)

  14. Destra e sinistra nello spazio iconico tra iconografia cristiana e antropologia.Sigrid Weigel - 2012 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 5 (2).
    Proceeding from the statement that «reading» images is not at all analogous to any culturally codified lecture of written texts, Sigrid Weigel develops a crucial critic of the anthropological paradigm linked to the left-right problem in the visual arts. Focusing on various examples of painted and sculpted Annunciations, the author argues how the decline of the traditional orientation, based on the figure of God in central position, leads to a growing importance of the spectator gaze and to a new relation (...)

    Grammatologie der Bilder.Sigrid Weigel - 2015 - Berlin: Suhrkamp.
    Das Buch der bekannten Literaturwissenschaftlerin untersucht die Formen des Bildertausches zwischen Wissenschaft, Religion, Kunst und Literatur. Jenseits der Kontroverse zwischen pictorial und linguistic turn geht es um das Wissen der Bilder an der Grenze zwischen Messen und Deuten: an der Schwelle zwischen Spur und Zeichen, Imaginärem und Sichtbarem, Material und Figur, Schauplatz und Erzählung, Daten und Graphik/Begriff. Momente des In-Erscheinung-Tretens stehen im Zentrum: von Bildern im Denken, von Affekten im Gesicht, von Transzendenz in Gemälden oder in der Dichtung. Ausgehend von (...)

    Grammatology of images: a history of the A-visible.Sigrid Weigel - 2022 - New York: Fordham University Press. Edited by Chadwick Truscott Smith & Sigrid Weigel.
    Grammatology of Images radically alters how we approach images. Instead of asking for the history, power, or essence of images, Sigrid Weigel addresses imaging as such. The book considers how something a-visible gets transformed into an image. Weigel scrutinizes the moment of mis-en-apparition, of making an appearance, and the process of concealment that accompanies any imaging. Weigel reinterprets Derrida's and Freud's concept of the trace as that which must be thought before something exists. In doing so, she illuminates the threshold (...)

    Handling og erindring, håb og skyld: Arv som generationsbånd hos Arendt, Benjamin, Heine og Freud.Sigrid Weigel - 2021 - Slagmark - Tidsskrift for Idéhistorie 82:17-33.
    The article discusses different but related figures of trans-generational heritage in the writings of Hannah Arendt, Walter Benjamin, Heinrich Heine, and Sigmund Freud. The common ground of these German-Jewish authors is an interpretative pattern within the theory of history/memory based in the idea of a strong bond of subsequent generations and their interrelation, which refers back to the biblical origins of the idea of ‘heritage’. Both Heine and Benjamin hypothesize a secret agreement between the generations, which might be read as (...)

    Posthuman Conditions.Sigrid Weigel - 2009 - Zeitschrift für Medien- Und Kulturforschung 1:12-18.
    As empirical research in neuro- and life sciences is aimed at the core of humanities, they adopt those formulas of pathos like "intention", "mind", "identity" or "consciousness" which, after all, have long been analysed with regard to their symbol-theoretical and media-anthropological principles. Meanwhile, cultural as well as media sciences have established themselves – beyond the contrasting 'two cultures' – as a kind of third culture of knowledge and thus connect to traditions of thought like, for instance, Freud's theory of subjects (...)

The New World Order The issue at the center of Giorgio Agamben's book Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life (1995), that of the relation of bare life to politics and the law, has, in the ten years since the book's appearance, been propelled so forcefully into the foreground by events on the world political stage that Agamben's central figure has taken on an uncanny actuality.1The images broadcast around the world of Guantánamo Bay appear like visualizations of the homo (...)

    Warburg’s “Goddess in Exile”: The “Nymph” Fragment between Letter and Taxonomy, Read with Heinrich Heine.Sigrid Weigel - 2013 - Critical Horizons 14 (3):271-295.
    As regards Aby Warburg’s oeuvre, it is fascinating that three unfinished or unpublished projects have come to represent the very theorems now appearing of most interest for cultural historians and theorists: The Mnemosyne Atlas representing pictorial memory; the Serpent Ritual as theorem for a cultural-anthropological reading of pagan cultures; and the Nymph Fragment as a foundational figure of modern iconology. This essay undertakes an analysis of the fragmentary character of Warburg’s way of working, arguing that his search for an analytic (...)
