La lunga storia di questo libro, in cui si concentrano i risultati di mezzo secolo di ricerche, ne ha fatto un classico obbligatorio per chiunque affronti i temi in esso trattati, o sia interessato all'ipotesi metodologica che vi è sottesa. È questo infatti il testo tipico del metodo di lavoro del Warburg Institute: lo stesso argomento prescelto, il temperamento melanconic

(Well, mine's the hardback, English edition, borrowed from Brooklyn College, but same book.) Saxl et al document the medical development of "melancholy" as an ambivalent humor (inspiring both sluggishness and divine madness) as well as the mythopoetic rise of Saturn as the dread Star of Genius.

Saturn and Melancholy is perfect for anyone interested in the Graeco-Roman concept of Kronos/Saturnus, in the Islamic Golden Age and how great physical/medical thinkers in Baghdad and great religious think

Luego de que en la década de 1920 Erwin Panofsky y Fritz Saxl publicaran una erudita investigación acerca de Melencolia I, quizás el grabado más célebre y misterioso de Durero, Raymond Klibansky se integró al proyecto de reeditar aquel ensayo monográfico, con lo que se transformó en un delicioso y concienzudo estudio acerca de la evolución de la melancolía y su relación tanto mitológica como simbólica con Saturno, el planeta situado en la esfera más exterior del cielo.

Hace algún tiempo escuchaba el programa de radio de Ikram Antaki y mencionaba este libro con gran admiración. Me puse a buscarlo, aunque fue complicado. Cuando al fin lo obtuve me sumergí en su lectura. Sus páginas están cargadas de citas en griego, latin, etcétera , abarca temas de filosofía, art ey literatura. Su gran rigor y erudición no le quita su amenidad. Si usted logra conseguirlo guárdelo en caja fuerte, no lo preste ...ni para sacarle fotocopias.

Esta obra SI que es legendaria.

Not bad but a bit generic, lot of information but in the end it gets a bit boring
