Abstract
Councillor Krespel, or, The Engineer of the Super-Violin: Scientific Discourse and Art Discourse As Grotesque Synthesis in Hoffmann’s Story »Councillor Krespel« – The obsessive artistic drive of Hoffmann’s figure Councillor Krespel has the goal of building the perfect violin. To reach this supernatural goal, Krespel uses not only the methods of the violin-making craft, but also the dissecting method of medical anatomy and the constructive method of the engineering craft. His aporia lies in striving to reach the soul of the instrument and the je ne sais quoi of the highest artistic effect by scientific-technical means. At the end, Krespel liberates himself from his obsession; the engineer of the super-violin crafts toys for children and thus removes himself from both the scientific and the art-metaphysical discourses, which enter a grotesque synthesis in Hoffmann’s tale.
