Contemporary Fairy-Tale Magic, edited by Lydia Brugué and Auba Llompart, studies the impact of fairy tales on contemporary cultures from an interdisciplinary perspective, with special emphasis on how literature and film are retelling classic fairy tales for modern audiences. We are currently witnessing a resurgence of fairy tales and fairy-tale characters and motifs in art and popular culture, as well as an increasing and renewed interest in reinventing and subverting these narratives to adapt them to the expectations and needs of the contemporary public. The collected essays also observe how the influence of academic disciplines like Gender Studies and current literary and cinematic trends play an important part in the revision of fairy-tale plots, characters and themes.
Although church historians often call the 19th century the Great Century of Protestant mission, for Latin America it was the 20th century that was the great century of Protestant growth and expansion. The 20th century witnessed vast societal changes and the realization of systemic poverty and injustice as well as the exponential growth, pentecostalization, and diversification of Latin American Protestantism. Latin American Protestant Theology emerged during this century of change.
This text provides an introduction to Latin American Protestant Theology by engaging its dominant theological streams (Liberal, Evangelical, and Pentecostal) and how they understand themselves through the lens of mission. The text offers both a critique of the Christendom cartography that is dominant in Latin American Protestant Theology as well as suggestions for how to move towards a transformative theology of mission. The primary intention of this text is to offer an informed outline and analysis of the theological landscape of Latin American Protestantism. The secondary intention of this book is to note the contributions as well as deficiencies of the streams of LAPT in the hope to signal a possible path towards the development of an integral, transformative, contextual, and decolonial theological voice.
Die Menge rückt im 19. Jahrhundert ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit, da sich mit ihr auf vielfältige Weise die durch die Tendenzen der Modernisierung und deren Deregulierungen hervorgerufenen Probleme und Aporien exemplarisch verhandeln lassen. Die Modernität der Menge besteht in der Dynamik der Ströme von Körpern, der Vielheit, der multitude, des Schwarms oder des Gewimmels, obwohl die Figur selbst eine Figur des Singulars ist.
Der Band bestimmt die Arten und Weisen der Repräsentation der Menge in den Paradoxien ihrer Darstellbarkeit und medialen Inszenierungen, die Dispositive der Wahrnehmung, die sprachlichen Ordnungen und Mechanismen ihres Ausschlusses, ihre Epistemologien und Figuren in Literatur und Film, Diskursen und Theorien.

In his book, Peter Rohs develops a dualism of process-types founded in a theory of time: a type of mental processes belonging to a time-theoretical ontology and a type of physical processes belonging to a timeless ontology (the ontology of physics). This dualism should be proved as a basis for a non-naturalistic philosophy of mind, through which a libertarian concept of freedom and of personal autonomy can be defended. This theory is, as Rohs tries to demonstrate, compatible with the theory of evolution.
