Abstract

The more urgently the meteorology of the 19th century tries to fit weather into the tried and proven models of order, the clearer it characterizes the atmospherical phenomena's resistance to these models. Therefore this article studies the weather as an incalculable disruptive factor in two conceptions of the world with a particularly strong urge for order Humboldt's Cosmos and Stifter's Indian Summer. It focuses on forms of experience of future which are specific to modernity as well as on the role of the weather in the medium of the novel which is by no means less modern.
