Visualität in der literarischen Geschichtsdarstellung
„Geschichte zerfällt in Bilder, nicht in Geschichten“ – so verwies Walter Benjamin bereits 1940 auf die Relevanz von Visualität für die Darstellung von Geschichte. Benjamin hat damit vorweggenommen, was sich in der Folge nicht nur zunehmend im wissenschaftlichen, sondern auch im literarischen Diskurs etabliert hat: Zwischen verschiedenen Medien können Varianten des Zusammenspiels bestehen und besonders die Darstellung vergangener Realität gewinnt durch den textuellen Rekurs auf Visualität an Aussagekraft. Für die Darstellung von Geschichte im postmodernen historischen Roman bietet der Rekurs auf Modi visueller Repräsentation und auf Zuschreibungsmerkmale fotografischer und filmischer Visualität einen signifikanten Mehrwert. Narratologische Aspekte sind bei der Analyse entsprechender Werke ebenso zu beachten wie deren Auseinandersetzung mit den die Aporien der traditionellen Historiografie. In diesem Band wird ein entsprechendes Analyse- und Beschreibungsmodell vorgestellt.
Discourses of Pistis in the Graeco-Roman World
The notion of faith experienced a remarkable surge in popularity among early Christians, with Paul as its pioneer. Yet what was the wider cultural significance of the pistis word group? This comprehensive work contextualizes Paul’s faith language within Graeco-Roman cultural discourses, highlighting its semantic multifariousness and philosophical potential. Based on an innovative combination of cognitive linguistics and discourse analysis, it explores ‘faith’ within social, political, religious, ethical, and cognitive contexts. While challenging modern individualist and irrational conceptualizations, this book shows how Paul uses pistis to creatively configure philosophical narratives of his age and propose Christ as its ultimate embodiment
Nuevos horizontes en la política, el derecho y la ley
Jesuitas españoles como Francisco Suárez (1548-1617), José de Acosta (1540-1600), Pedro de Ribadeneira (1526-1611) y Juan de Mariana (1536-1624) influyeron en pensadores ingleses de la talla de John Locke (1632-1704), Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Robert Persons (1546-1610), Algernon Sidney (1623-1683) o, posteriormente, William Robertson (1721-1793), Thomas de Quincey (1785-1859) e Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953). Una influencia a veces disimulada y frecuentemente controvertida. Una concepción constitucionalista del poder político, el reconocimiento y la promoción de los derechos innatos y la necesaria sujeción de los gobernantes a la ley, forman parte del importante legado de estos doctores escolásticos al acervo intelectual europeo.
Rudolf Carnap (1891-1970) and Otto Neurath (1882-1945) had a decisive influence on the development of the scientific world view of logical empiricism. Their relationship was marked by mutual intellectual stimulation, close collaboration, and personal friendship, but also by controversies that were as heated as they were rarely fought out in public. Carnap and Neurath were, in the words of Olga Hahn-Neurath, "like-minded opponents". The essays in this volume deal with these key thinkers of logical empiricism from different perspectives, shedding light on the complex development of one of the most influential philosophical currents of the twentieth century in the midst of dark times.
Annotating Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 43”
With a fresh and innovative perspective, Leonie Kirchhoff introduces an interdisciplinary examination of literary understanding, drawing upon cognitive, educational, and literary studies. At the heart of the study is a fascinating exploration of explanatory annotations written by university students, providing valuable insights into the complexities of understanding poetry in general and the timeless verses of Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 43” in particular. The students’ annotations thereby serve as a unique methodological tool, allowing the author to meticulously scrutinise and critically assess the perspectives presented by the three fields of study. Through this rigorous exploration, the author maps and reflects on long-term hermeneutic processes. This scholarly work provides a unique contribution to the field and offers an essential resource for academics, researchers, and scholars seeking a deeper understanding of the intricate processes involved in literary understanding.
The Variegated Ways of Separations between Jews and Christians
The essays collected in this volume are the proceedings of an international conference held in Vienna (Austria) in September 2022 on the “parting of the ways” between Jews and Christians. They demonstrate that the beginnings of what we today call “Christianity” were fully embedded in early Judaism in the first century CE. The 18 chapters of this collection span from considerations about early Jewish identity/ies (Tiwald/Öhler, Grohmann, Magness) to Pauline theology (Tiwald, Ehrensperger, Eschner), the Sayings Source (Heil), the Gospels of Matthew (Konradt), Johnine and Biblical theology (Schreiber, Scherer, Förster), the Didache (Doering) to Ignatius of Antioch (Foster, Öhler), Origen (Siquans), and the Rabbis (Stemberger). The volume ends with systematic-theological considerations on the “parting of the ways” and perspectives of Jewish-Christian dialogue.
– oder: Warum es gut ist, sich selbst zu achten
Selbstachtung heißt, Verantwortung für sich selbst zu übernehmen. Doch obwohl sie elementar für ein gelingendes Leben und unsere moralische Praxis ist, sind wir nicht zur Selbstachtung verpflichtet. Gegenüber anderen Menschen haben wir Achtungspflichten aufgrund des Gebots, nicht zu schaden, aufgrund ihrer moralischen Rechte und eventuell auch aufgrund besonderer Nahbeziehungen, in denen wir zu ihnen stehen. Auch wenn wir uns selbst gegenüber keine derartigen Pflichten haben, ist insbesondere die Moral innerhalb von Nahbeziehungen wichtig für unser Verständnis von Selbstachtung. An ihnen lässt sich nachvollziehen, dass zu unserer moralischen Praxis auch die persönlichen Haltungen gehören, in denen wir einander begegnen. Selbstachtung ist eine selbstreflexive Haltung, die wir unter bestimmten Bedingungen einnehmen können. Sie einzuüben ist notwendig, um mitbestimmen zu können, wer man ist und sein will, und um sich um seiner selbst willen wertschätzen zu können.
Two millennia ago, the Jewish priest-turned-general Flavius Josephus, captured by the emperor Vespasian in the middle of the Roman-Jewish War (66–70 CE), spent the last decades of his life in Rome writing several historiographical works in Greek. Josephus was eagerly read and used by Christian thinkers, but eventually his writings became the basis for the early-10th century Hebrew text called Sefer Yosippon, reintegrating Josephus into the Jewish tradition. This volume marks the first edited collection to be dedicated to the study of Josephus, Yosippon, and their reception histories. Consisting of critical inquiries into one or both of these texts and their afterlives, the essays in this volume pave the way for future research on the Josephan tradition in Greek, Latin, Hebrew and beyond.
Sound-Worlds of Central Europe explores the sound-world of early modern Silesia via the writings of humanists active there in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries who both observed musical culture and actively participated in it: a poet, a publisher, a pedagogue, a physician, a historian, and a regionalist. Such an approach makes it possible to reconstruct their perceptions and understandings of music—a constitutive element of this community. As these authors concentrated more on the representation of music than the art itself, the book reflects the collective memory of the republic of scholars: their individual and common imaginarium.
Revisiting Critical Event Narrative Inquiry
This thought-provoking research anthology adopts a postmodern stance and fills in a gap of knowledge for the education of professional development in teacher education, health sciences and the arts. Allowing subjectivity and multiple voices, the authors add to the intimate and negotiated knowledge of being and becoming – indigenous, architect, mother, teacher, health researcher, and supervisor. In fifteen chapters, the authors share knowledge of pain and reward in critical events in the realm of professional identity formation. The book provides a selection of personal and far-reaching stories and adds to the reflexivity of memories of critical events.
