Transdisziplinäre Perspektiven
Die Reihe „Ästhetische Praxis“ widmet sich der Untersuchung von Praxis-Dimensionen der Künste aus transdisziplinärer Perspektive, aber auch der Erforschung alltäglicher ästhetischer Praktiken. Thematisiert werden soll, wie sich Kunstwerke als Manifestationen von Praktiken, etwa von Übungen, Proben, Improvisationen, Schreibprozessen, Akten des Skizzierens oder Entwerfens, verstehen lassen. Diese Praktiken können darüber hinaus in ihrem jeweiligen ästhetischen Eigenwert betrachtet sowie in Kontexten jenseits der Kunstwelt erforscht werden. Weitere Schwerpunkte bilden Arbeiten zu ästhetischen Praktiken im Kontext einer postkolonialen Ästhetik sowie tätigkeitstheoretische Untersuchungen zum Verhältnis von Handeln, Praxis und ästhetischer Praxis, die die aktuelle praxeologische Wende in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften um eine ästhetische Perspektive ergänzen.

The series “Aesthetic Practice” is dedicated to the investigation of practice dimensions of the arts from a transdisciplinary perspective, but also to the exploration of everyday aesthetic practices.It will address how works of art can be understood as manifestations of practices, such as exercises, rehearsals, improvisations, writing processes, acts of sketching or designing. These practices can furthermore be considered in their eespective aesthetic intrinsic value as well as explored in contexts beyond the art world. Other focal points include work on aesthetic practices in the context of a postcolonial aesthetics as well as activity-theoretical investigations of the relationship between action, practice, and aesthetic practice, which complement the current praxeological turn in the humanities and social sciences with an aesthetic perspective.
Ein Grundlagentext zur Praxis und Ästhetik des japanischen Nō-Theaters. Zweisprachige Ausgabe. Übersetzt, philosophisch erläutert und herausgegeben von Ryōsuke Ōhashi, Rolf Elberfeld und Leon Krings
Das Buch bietet eine philosophisch kommentierte Übersetzung des altjapanischen Textes von Zeami zur Praxis und Ästhetik des Nō-Theaters.
Zeami beschreibt nicht nur die Praxis des Schauspielers in verschiedenen Aspekten, sondern entwickelt auch zentrale ästhetische Kategorien für die Rezeption des Nō-Theaters. Die Übersetzung wird ergänzt durch interpretierende Aufsätze zu Themen wie der Maske im Nō-Theater, dem Gebrauch des Körpers und einer Ästhetik des Atmens. Der Band liefert somit eine solide Grundlage für eine philosophisch-ästhetische Auseinandersetzung mit einer alten japanischen Schauspieltradition.
Die Frage nach sozialer Integration und die Idee Performativer Sozialphilosophie
Um zu vermeiden, soziale Integration nach Maßgabe eurozentrisch-assimilativer Narrative aufzufassen, ist die Konstitution sozialer Ordnung als eine performative Praxis leiblicher Verkörperung zu begreifen. Dann nämlich hat man das Fremde zwischen uns anzuerkennen und zwar als die je individuelle Realität des Leiblichen. Die Anerkennung der fremden und insofern unverfügbaren Realität leiblichen Seins muss einer exklusionskritischen Politik sozialer Integration als ethische Richtschnur dienen. Dementsprechend erweitert die Performative Sozialphilosophie klassische diskurstheoretische Auffassungen des Performativen um eine leib-phänomenologische Dimension. Ferner ergänzt sie die zeitgenössischen post-anthropologischen Konzeptionen des Sozialen um eine anthropologische Kritik. Schließlich gilt es die performative Verkörperung sozialer Ordnung vor dem Hintergrund der spezifischen Natur humaner Leiblichkeit zu verstehen.
Aesthetic and Ethical Transformations
Editor: Lucilla Guidi
This volume explores and expands a Wittgensteinian account of philosophy as an ongoing practice and exercise. It investigates the simultaneously aesthetic and ethical dimension of philosophical exercises, so as to uncover their transformative potential for and within ordinary practice, conceived of as a weave of trained, embodied habits. For this purpose, the volume focuses on three intertwined aspects:
1. It examines the aesthetic form of Wittgenstein’s texts, so as to consider the use of pictures, comparisons, and instructions as exercises to be enacted by readers, and further analyzes the transformative effects – both aesthetic and ethical – that such exercises bring out.
2. It draws a number of connections between Wittgenstein’s philosophical exercises and particular aesthetic practices.
3. It sheds light on continuities and discontinuities between Wittgenstein’s account of philosophy and the ancient conception of philosophy as an exercise and a way of life.
Lawāmiʿ al-Naẓar fī Taḥqīq Maʿānī al-Mukhtaṣar is Aḥmad b. Yaʿqūb al-Wallālī's (d. 1128/1716) commentary on al-Sanūsī's (d. 895/1490) compendium of logic, al-Mukhtaṣar. Al-Wallālī was the first commentator on al-Sanūsī's compendium after the author's autocommentary. In this publication, Ibrahim Safri offers a critical edition of this work, together with a study of the author's life and oeuvre.
Safri also tries to show the indirect influence of Avicennism on logic in the Maghribī tradition in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. On the basis of his writings on logic and philosophical theology, al-Wallālī was considered a master of rational sciences by his contemporaries.
Between Secularization and Reform: Religion in the Enlightenment provides a critical reappraisal of the idea that the Enlightenment is at the headwaters of secularization. Contributors analyze early modern religious controversies, the significance of faith in national contexts, clandestine philosophy, varieties of rational religion, and the intermingling of heterodoxy with unbelief in the writings of key thinkers and less famous figures.

The volume encourages revisiting descriptions of the “Age of Lights” that use such categories as “moderate – radical” and “religious – secular.” Picturing the deep transformation undergone by religion in the Enlightenment, it draws a thin line between religious reforms and attempts to eliminate religious faith from the public sphere and individuals’ lives.

Contributors include: Jeffrey D. Burson, Dominic Erdozain, Hasse Hämäläinen, Wojciech Kozyra, Ian Leask, Diego Lucci, Gianni Paganini, Stephen R. Palmquist, Mathias Sonnleithner, Anna Tomaszewska, Damien Tricoire, and Wiep van Bunge.

Sociology for Durkheim was by no means a knowledge closed in its specificity. It was rather an open science, permeable to contributions coming from other disciplines. For him, the task of sociology was to study what held societies together, giving place to reflective change and progressive development. This is an epistemological and political model that still retains all its relevance today: an example to be rediscovered against any reductionist conception of the vocation and object of social sciences; an encouragement to see sociology as an indispensable protagonist for an authentic interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of humanities. It is one of the best legacies Durkheim left us, that this book attempts to illustrate.
History and Critique of the Social Movement in the World Market
Global Marx is a collective research on Marx's account of capital's domination through his critique of disciplinary languages, investigation of political structures and analysis of specific political spaces within the world market. His discourse appears here as global not only because global is the geography of the world market but also because Marx redefined the relationships between the spaces on which capital exerts its command. Global Marx proves that Marx's texts do not identify any global working class, nor a centre of power to be conquered, but show that, within and against the world market, there is a social movement that is irreducible to any identity or to a single space from whose perspective one can write a universal history of class struggle.
