This first in-depth study of Valerius Flaccus’ animals reveals their role in his poetic programme and the manifold ways in which he establishes their subjectivity. In one encounter, a trapped bird becomes a tragic victim, while the trapper is dehumanized. Elsewhere there are touching portrayals of animal/human camaraderie and friendship. Furthermore, Valerius’ provocative consideration of the ‘monstrous’ challenges simplistic definitions of any being’s nature, or the nature of relationships across species. His challenge entails profound ethical implications for his Roman readership, which resonate with us as we assess our own relationship to animals and the natural world today.

This book is the outcome of one of the most extensive international academic projects on the COVID-19 pandemic in the field of humanities and social sciences. It includes the reflections of scholars from 25 universities, in Europe, Asia, Canada, Australia, the US, and the UK, on 60 important philosophical and political questions. This paradigmatic volume is unique in the history of the humanities and social sciences in dealing with pandemics and should be considered as a starting point for more coherent and synergistic academic cooperation in preparation for similar future phenomena.

If, as Robert Craft remarked, ‘religious beliefs were at the core of Stravinsky’s life and work’, why have they not figured more prominently in discussions of his works?
Stravinsky’s coordination of the listener with time is central to the unity of his compositional style. This ground-breaking study looks at his background in Russian Orthodoxy, at less well-known writings of Arthur Lourié and Pierre Souvtchinsky and at the Catholic philosophy of Jacques Maritain, that shed light on the crucial link between Stravinsky’s spirituality and his restoration of time in music.
Recent neuroscience research supports Stravinsky’s eventual adoption of serialism as the natural and logical outcome of his spiritual and musical quest.
Belegt werden soll, wie Nietzsche die Literatur beeinflusste und wie seine Themen literarisch umgesetzt wurden. In Rede stehen dabei Robert Musil, Stefan George, Rainer-Maria Rilke, Heimito von Doderer, Else Lasker-Schüler, Hermann Broch und auch neuere Literaten: Bertolt Brecht, Thomas Bernhard, Heiner Müller, Martin Walser und Durs Grünbein. Abgesehen von den neueren Autoren, die bisher nicht in diesem Zusammenhang thematisiert wurden, eröffnen auch die Beiträge über die ältere Rezeption neue Perspektiven, sodass hier für beide Perioden neue Erkenntnisse bezüglich Nietzsches Einfluss auf sie vorgelegt werden. Zudem treten die beiden Rezeptionsphasen in einen Dialog, der verdeutlicht, welche Veränderungen sich ergeben haben und der damit die Forschung bereichert. Eine Bereicherung, die auch Auswirkungen auf die Germanistik und die philosophische Nietzscheforschung haben wird
Perspektiven der Wissenschaftsforschung
Dieser Band analysiert erstmals systematisch und interdisziplinär Geschichte, Formen, Funktionen und Auswirkungen des Scheiterns im Kontext der Wissenschaften.
Das Scheitern ist in seinen unterschiedlichen Erscheinungsformen ein ständiger Begleiter der wissenschaftlichen Praxis. Theorien, Hypothesen oder Experimente einzelner Forscher:innen und Forschergruppen scheitern – vorläufig oder endgültig, partiell oder vollständig. Für ein adäquates Verständnis des wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisprozesses ist es daher unabdingbar, sich mit den Formen, Funktionen, Mechanismen und Auswirkungen des Scheiterns zu befassen, was bis dato allerdings kaum geschieht – weder innerhalb der wissenschaftlichen Gemeinschaft noch in der öffentlichen Debatte. Durch diese „Vernachlässigung des Scheiterns“ in den Wissenschaften bleiben auch dessen mitunter produktive Effekte zumeist unerwähnt. Über Versuch und Irrtum führen die „Irrwege“ des Erkenntnisprozesses häufig zu Erfolgen und Lösungen.
Der Band schließt diese Forschungslücke und verbindet dabei Perspektiven aus vielen Bereichen der Wissenschaftsforschung und aus der Wissenschaftspraxis.

The Maimonides Review of Philosophy and Religion is an annual collection of double-blind peer-reviewed articles that seeks to provide a broad international arena for an intellectual exchange of ideas between the disciplines of philosophy, theology, religion, cultural history, and literature and to showcase their multifarious junctures within the framework of Jewish studies. Contributions to the Review place special thematic emphasis on scepticism within Jewish thought and its links to other religious traditions and secular worldviews. The Review is interested in the tension at the heart of matters of reason and faith, rationalism and mysticism, theory and practice, narrativity and normativity, doubt and dogma. This volume features contributions by Reimund Leicht, Gitit Holzman, Jonathan Garb, Anna Lissa, Gianni Paganini, Adi Louria Hayon, Mark Marion Gondelman, and Jürgen Sarnowsky.

This book intends to present Mamardashvili’s philosophical perspective on modern society by exemplifying in different ways its distinctive contribution to the greater philosophical landscape. The authors aim to define both Mamardashvili’s place in the history of philosophy—among the currents of twentieth-century European thought and, in particular, phenomenology—and his relations with authors like Hegel, Proust, Deleuze, and Wittgenstein, while identifying the basic methodological instruments and substantive concepts of his thought—language, migration, citizenship, or “the freedom of complaint.” The volume will be useful both for preparatory courses (by supplying an introduction to Mamardashvili’s thought and forming the key necessary concepts) and for advanced research exigencies, allowing a professional audience to discover the remarkable insights of Mamardashvili’s philosophy.
A great number of historical examples show how desperate people sought to obtain a glimpse of the future or explain certain incidents retrospectively through signs that had occurred in advance. In that sense, signs are always considered a portent of future events. In different societies, and at different times, the written or unwritten rules regarding their interpretation varied, although there was perhaps a common understanding of these processes.
This present volume collates essays from specialists in the field of prognostication in the European Middle Ages.

Karl Barth and the Tasks of Eschatology
Volume Editors: Kaitlyn Dugan and Philip G. Ziegler
In this volume, leading systematic theologians and New Testament scholars working today undertake a fresh and constructive interdisciplinary engagement with key eschatological themes in Christian theology in close conversation with the work of Karl Barth. Ranging from close exegetical studies of Barth’s treatment of eschatological themes in his commentary on Romans or lectures on 1 Corinthians, to examination of his mature dogmatic discussions of death and evil, this volume offers a fascinating variety of insights into both Barth’s theology and its legacy, as well as the eschatological dimensions of the biblical witness and its salience for both the academy and church.
