It is rare to find such a broad historical work dealing with a singular planetary influence on human life, such as the baleful influence of Saturn. However, in Saturn and Melancholy we find a book that is an iconic text concerning the esoteric and exoteric aspects of Saturn’s influence upon our culture, exploring the saturnine influences throughout history, both in Art and Intellectual endeavour. Furthermore, rooted in the tradition established by Aby Warburg and the Warburg Library, this book has deeply influenced human understanding of the interrelation between the humanities disciplines since its first publication in English in 1964.
