Abstract

The article argues two questions: (1) Do we need literary studies as an academic discipline? (2) Where and how are useful connections between literary and culture studies possible? As a tentative answer to the second question the article suggests the aesthetic-social field of action, which is here exemplified by the mannerist field of action of the court of Rudolf II. The first question is answered by suggestions for the function of literary studies as a possible means of social self-understanding.
