Chapter Summary

The formative influences on Josef Liegle's intellectual life may be indicated by two names: that of Stefan George, and that of Wilamowitz. The decision to become a professional scholar was not easy. The tensions between the old and the new, between the tradition of historical scholarship and a new beginning under the auspices of George, come to light with particular clarity in Liegle's letters about an occasion on which he addressed the seminar of Wilhelm Schubart. George's influence went deep (not only with Josef Liegle) that it may help to explain the coherence and consistency of Liegle's intellectual achievement. According to the author, in Josef Liegle, a humanism that bears the stamp of George and the sober scholarship of the school of Wilamowitz have formed a remarkable alliance.

Keywords: Josef Liegle; Stefan George; Wilamowitz; Wilhelm Schubart
