Abstract

This article analyses Ernst Cassirer's ambivalent relationship with a member of the Stefan George circle, the literary scholar Friedrich Gundolf.It suggests that the subject of hero worship confused the otherwise clear divide between liberal supporters and conservative enemies of the Weimar republic that we are familiar with from the work of dominant scholars of this period.
