Apparently, not much brings modern revolutionary tradition close to Warburg’s research. Do studies into Nachleben der Antike not contradict the tradition of revolutionary change? Is ”unnamed science” doomed to be “reactionary”, to constantly seek the return of that which is primitive, or is it capable to tell about the fate of the nameless in whose name revolutions are, as a rule, carried out? The search for analogies between the formulas of pathos present in the history of the culture of antiquity, the Renaissance or late modernity, on the one hand, and the depictions of the revolution and its participants, on the other hand, is not supposed to exclusively portray some sort of a continuum within the range of the ”tradition of the oppressed” alone or to persuade us to accept its cultural enrootment. In a certain sense, this is a hermeneutic of the revolution as such. In the reanimated scenes of lofty pathos and dramatic suffering there stirs yet another utopian vision of historicism itself and that which revolution wants to accomplish within it.
