Natural law changed its character in the post-Reformation period, mainly because it became an academic discipline. This institutionalisation happened first in Protestant countries but increasingly also in Catholic areas. In the hands of philosophers and jurists rather than theologians the subject served a wide variety of purposes in domestic, colonial, imperial and international politics, in judicial administration, legislation and reform, in social analysis and in the inculcation of social ethics. Although concerned with the foundations of morality, law and politics, early modern natural law was far from a coherent philosophical theory, but rather the framework for fundamental disputes. What kind of natural law was adopted in a given place and period was often a matter of local controversy in state, church and university. At the same time, natural law was characterised by extensive transnational networks.

The Language of Education

Key Terms and Concepts in Teaching and Learning

The Language of Education: Key Terms and Concepts in Teaching and Learning is a series of short handbooks each of which focuses on the special language inherent in a variety of educational disciplines. Those entering graduate programs, scholars from non-English speaking areas, teachers with interests in accessing the academic literature, and even those wishing to explore outside their discipline should find something of interest in these books. In short, these books support shared understanding by assisting all of those working with a particular discipline to share a common vocabulary and foster effective communication.

The featured terms in each volume have been selected for their relevance and their potential to be defined uniquely in a particular educational field. The key terms are discussed on one page with a short introductory definition for quick reference followed by a longer expanded discussion supported by references. The index in each book includes links to encourage readers to explore related terms and concepts and thus gain additional information and context. Those who are new to the academic language of a particular educational area, may find it useful to read the books in this series as if each were a collection of very short stories introducing that discipline.
How has man dealt in daily practice with the uncertainty intrinsic to the future? Prognostication in History is a peer-reviewed, international book series that investigates the concepts, techniques and practices and their development in different societies and in different periods. Its main focus is on Asia and Europe.
Prognostication in all its forms is an extremely diverse anthropological phenomenon, which so far has been understudied in the Humanities. The book series approaches the topic from a cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary perspective, aiming to both broaden specific knowledge and enhance critical reflection. Published in close cooperation with the Society for the Critical Study of Divination, it builds on the work of the International Consortium for Research in the Humanities at Erlangen University on “Fate, Freedom, and Prognostication – Strategies for Coping with the Future in East Asia and Europe”, thus providing a platform for scholars world-wide to present and connect their research on a subject of ever-growing importance for a wide variety of disciplines.
Die Reihe „Schriften zur Marinegeschichte“ will ein Forum für neue und kontroverse Forschungsergebnisse zu ausgewählten Themenkreisen der Marinegeschichte bieten. Damit öffnet sich diese Reihe einem weiten inhaltlichen Spektrum und dem Interessentenkreis aktiver und ehemaliger Angehöriger der deutschen Seestreitkräfte sowie militär- oder maritim-historisch interessierter Leser. Die Veröffentlichungspalette soll von der Verschriftlichung von Vortragsreihen über wissenschaftliche Qualifikationsarbeiten bis zur Publikation unbekannter oder seltener Dokumente reichen. Ein besonderes Augenmerk möchten die Herausgeber neben Biographien auch auf Publikationen richten, welche sich der kommentierenden Bearbeitung von Selbstzeugnissen widmen. Steht zwar das erzählende Ich im Mittelpunkt und muss gebührend zu Wort kommen, so soll doch eine umfassende Kommentierung den erklärenden Rahmen bieten. Auf diese Weise soll versucht werden, Ereignisse und Strukturen – vielleicht auch nur die Normalität – vergangener Zeiten aus der personalen Perspektive heraus sichtbar zu machen, wissenschaftlich begründet einzufassen und insgesamt für weitergehende Forschungen zu öffnen. Die „Schriften zur Marinegeschichte“ werden vom Freundeskreis des Wehrgeschichtlichen Ausbildungszentrum der Marineschule Mürwik e.V. und der Stiftung Deutsches Marinemuseum gemeinsam herausgegeben. Beide Einrichtungen wollen mit der Schriftenreihe Kenntnis und Verständnis der politischen, militärstrategischen, technischen, sozialen und kulturellen Aspekte deutscher Militär- und Marinegeschichte erweitern und vertiefen.
This series focuses on the manifold commercial, human, political-diplomatic and scientific interactions that took place across the continental (overland) and maritime Silk Routes. This includes exchanges of ideas, knowledge, religions, and the transfer of cultural traditions, including forms of migration. Geographically speaking the series covers networks (or routes) across the Eurasian continent, the broader Indian Ocean (from East Asia as far as Africa), and the Asia-Pacific world, that is, trans-Pacific connections from Asia to the American continent. A special interest lies in the history of science and technology and knowledge transfer along and across these routes. The series focuses particularly on historical topics but contemporary studies are also welcome.
Shii Islam: Texts and Studies, provides a scholarly forum for scholars specializing in all fields of Shii studies—Twelver Shii, Ismaili, Zaydi, and other trends in Shii thought throughout history.

Shii Islam: Texts and Studies welcomes submissions of original studies on law, hadīth, Qurʾānic exegesis, philosophy, kalām, ritual and practices, classical and contemporary literature, and other aspects of the history of Shiism, including its mystical tradition, critical editions of classical and pre-modern texts, as well as collective volumes on Shii themes.

SGG aims to provide an online reference tool for scholars of Greek antiquity, complementary to Jacoby continuatus FGrHist IV. It is designed to bring together a collection of critical editions of the testimonies and fragments of Greek grammatikoi, namely, ancient scholars dealing with textual criticism, literary exegesis, grammar, biography, and the various fields of erudition. Each entry will consist of a biographical and cultural profile of the grammarian and a new (often the first) critical edition of all the extant textual testimonies and sources in their original language, supported by translations and analytical commentaries, and followed by a thorough bibliography and indices. SGG will be published online in this e-book series.
