This chapter discusses the variations in the philosophical interpretation of the works of Paul Klee. It suggests that it is not surprising for neoclassical or modernist interpretations of Klee to emerge given his interest in traditional painting and literature as well as the emerging avant-garde. The chapter also discusses how Klee became paradigmatic for more radical forms of philosophy, particularly when his works became associated with postmodernism or post-structuralism in the mid-1906s.

Keywords:   Paul Klee, philosophical interpretation, neoclassical interpretations, modernist interpretations, philosophy, postmodernism, post-structuralism
