Abstract

SUMMARYThis bio-bibliographical account of Georg Cohn (1866-194?) essays to sketch out the life of a Berlin Privatgelehrter at the end of the 19th and the early period of the 20th century. It characterizes the intellectual milieu of time and place, both inside and outside the vistas of Romance philology at the University of Berlin, and traces in particular the influence on Georg Cohn of scholars such as the general linguist, philosopher, and psychologist of language, Heymann Steinthal (1823-99), on the one hand, and the Romanist Adolf Tobler (1835-1910), on the other. In addition, a detailed analysis is offered of Cohn's most important contributions to Romance scholarship.RÉSUMÉCette esquisse de la vie et l'oeuvre de Georg Cohn (1866-194?) tente de tracer la carrière d'un érudit berlinois vers la fin du XIXe et au début du XXe siècle. Elle caractérise l'atmosphère intellectuelle du milieu et de l'époque en nous donnant un aperçu de l'étendue de la philologie romane à l'Université de Berlin. Elle démontre surtout l'influence d'hommes de science, tels le professeur de linguistique générale Heymann Steinthal (1823-99) et le romaniste Adolf Tobler (1835-1910), sur Georg Cohn. En outre, on y trouvera une analyse détaillée des contributions les plus importantes de Cohn à l'érudition romane.
