Panel Title: "Musil's Intellectual Affinities"

Robert Musil’s work lends itself to rich comparative analyses of other philosophers and intellectual movements. This is true for his predecessors, influences, contemporaries, and successors. A review of Musil scholarship reveals numerous book and article titles that read: Robert Musil and [insert proper name or weighty idea here]. The organizers of this panel seek papers that examine how Musil uses a unique blend of literary, essayistic, and technical language to engage – and often to improve – the conceptual inventories of other thinkers (broadly defined). These may precede or follow Musil’s lifetime, and papers may argue for or against his affinity with them. Papers are also welcome to pursue a related approach that examines Musil’s treatment of an idea, for example ethics, modernity/ modernism, analogy, etc., in relation to different thought systems from different eras. We also welcome submissions that locate Musil’s intellectual affinities through close readings of his fictional work.

The affinities given between Musil and the thinkers and ideas listed are suggestions and starting points, but should not limit the field of inquiry:

• Qualitylessness, Mysticism, and Meister Eckhart
• Romanticism (der blaue Blume ≈ der andere Zustand)
• Kant (moral/ ethical action)
• Nietzsche (perspectivism ≈ Möglichkeitssinn| Herdenmensch ≈ der Durchschnittmensch)
• Mach (emotion, situatedness, embodiment)
• Heidegger (das Man ≈ der Durchschnittsmensch)
• Luhmann (Beobachtung zweiter Ordnung ≈Möglichkeitssinn)
• T. Mann (apodictic poetics [der große Schriftsteller v. questioning poetics)
• Béla Balázs (aesthetic/ film theory)
• Criminality/ Amoralism
• Analogy

Please send 250 word abstracts or any questions you might have to Brett Martz (martzbc@longwood.edu) and Todd Cesaratto (tmcesara@uark.edu) by January 31st.
