Eine wichtige Studie zum George-Kreis, der in einem bislang unbekanntem Ausmaß von der Theosophie geprägt wurde. Die Theosophische Gesellschaft war die kulturgeschichtlich einflussreichste esoterische Institution des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts. Ihre Lehren vermengten Elemente indischer Religionen und des europäischen Okkultismus zu einer religiös grundierten Weltanschauung, die vor allem bei Künstlern, Intellektuellen und sozialen Eliten Anklang fand. Die Wirkungsgeschichte der Theosophie prägt auch die Geschichte des Kreises um den Dichter Stefan George. Sie ist nachweisbar in der Symbolik, mit der Georges Buchgestalter Melchior Lechter die Publikationen des Kreises versah, und im Mitgliedsregister der Theosophischen Gesellschaft, das neben Lechter auch Karl Wolfskehl und andere George-Anhänger verzeichnet. Während Zeitgenossen wie Ernst Bloch versuchten, George mit der Theosophie zu vereinbaren, begann George selbst die weltanschauliche Identität seines Kreises ab 1910 durch programmatische Abgrenzungen von der Theosophie zu konturieren. Ein Motiv dieser Abgrenzungen ist die Konkurrenz, die seine poetische Messiasfigur Maximin durch die theosophische Messiasfigur Krishnamurti erhielt. Den George-Kreis und die Theosophische Gesellschaft verbindet auch die Verwendung der Swastika als Erkennungsmarke. Im Anhang des Bandes wird dieser Zusammenhang im Kontext der westlichen Deutungsgeschichte des Zeichens, das heute nur noch als NSDAP-Hakenkreuz wahrnehmbar ist, untersucht.

Despite the enormous amount of material on the subject of Nazism, there has been no substantial work on its emblem, the swastika. This original and controversial contribution examines the role that the swastika played in the construction of the Aryan myth in the nineteenth century, and its use in Nazi ideology as a symbol of party, nation and race, treating it as symbolic phenomenon in a cultural context. By identifying the swastika as a boundary or liminal image, Malcolm Quinn allies visual anaysis to issues of material culture and history.

"The swastika and similar symbols were employed by the ancestors of the modern-day Germans. With the Nazi seizure of power, studies of such ideographs became directly supported by the state. The Science of the Swastika is the first theoretically informed study of the relationship between an academic discipline and what the Nazis termed their Weltanschauung. It surveys the fate of Old Germanic studies under the Nazis, a discipline of especial interest to the forces of German reaction. German swastika studies also gave rise to the SS-Ahnenerbe, the antiquarian research organization through which medical experiments were later to be performed on the inmates of concentration camps. The Old Germanic studies of the Nazi period proved to be a creative foil to the almost overwhelmingly destructive side of National Socialism."--BOOK JACKET.
