Rhetoric, Linguistics and Philosophical Theology in Origen, Contra Celsum 4.1-22
Can the Divine itself come down to earth? The Platonist Celsus rejected it as most shameful, Origen however defended this idea as an essential part of Christian doctrine. This book comments on passages from Origen’s Against Celsus 4 in which both authors put forward their arguments. The Greek text is discussed from three perspectives: linguistics, rhetoric and philosophical theology. This approach includes a focus on the communication between author and readers, the structure of the discourse, and the persuasive strategies used by Celsus and Origen. Attention is also given to conceptions of God and his relation to the world, which form the backdrop to their arguments. Moreover, their theological conceptions are related to the wider philosophical discourse of the Greco-Roman age.
A Lifelong Struggle for Peace in Church and State, 1583 – 1645
Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) is the most famous humanist scholar of the Dutch Golden Age. He wrote influential works on the laws of war and peace, Dutch history and the unification of the churches. His plea for a freedom of the seas in Mare liberum offered the Dutch East India Company a ready justification for the establishment of a trading empire in the East Indies. As far as his daily duties left him any spare time, he penned confidential, learned and beautifully-written letters. This voluminous correspondence offers a trove of information on Grotius’ life and works, and forms the basis of his newest biography which sketches a life caught in a fierce struggle for peace in Church and State.

A Companion to Enlightenment Historiography provides a survey of the most important historians and historiographical debates in the long eighteenth century, examining these debates’ stylistic, philosophical and political significance. The chapters, many of which were specially commissioned for this volume, offer a mixture of accessible introduction and original interpretive argument; they will thus appeal both to the scholar of the period and the more general reader. Part I considers Gibbon, Hume, Robertson, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Herder and Vico. Part II explores wider themes of national and thematic context: English, Scottish, French and German Enlightenment historians are discussed, as are the concepts of historical progress, secularism, the origins of historicism and the deployments of Greek and Roman antiquity within 18th century historiography.
Contributors are Robert Mankin, Simon Kow, Jeffrey Smitten, Rebecca Kingston, Síofra Pierse, Bertrand Binoche, Donald Phillip Verene, Ulrich Muhlack, David Allan, Noelle Gallagher, François-Emmanuël Boucher, Sandra Rudnick Luft, Sophie Bourgault, C. Akça Ataç, and Robert Sparling.
Hungarian Essays on Literature, Art, and Democratic Transition, 1945-1948
When the Hungarian Marxist philosopher and literary critic György Lukács returned to Hungary from Moscow after World War II, he engaged in a highly active phase of writing and speaking about the democratic culture needed to exorcise the remnants of fascism and to create the conditions for the advance of socialism in Central Europe. His essays of the period, including the influential volume Literature and Democracy, appear here for the first time in English translation. Engaged with questions of realist and modernist world-views in art, the relations of literary history to politics and social history, and the role of cultural intellectuals in public life, these essays offer a new look at one of the most influential Marxist thinkers of the twentieth century.
Complementing the growing list of editions and translations which have appeared in the series Aristoteles Semitico-Latinus, this is the first critical edition of Adam of Bockenfield’s commentary on the pseudo-Aristotelian treatise on plants. The leading Arts master at Oxford in the middle decades of the thirteenth century, Adam crafted a comprehensive and highly organized commentary, which enjoyed wide circulation on the continent. Professor Long’s introduction also explores the relationship between Adam’s commentary and the gloss that was the established classroom text at Oxford.
Minding Time: A Philosophical and Theoretical Approach to the Psychology of Time offers a theoretical account of the most fundamental kinds of time representation, drawing on philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and biology. Recent experimental findings on creatures from bees to scrub-jays to human beings have demonstrated the complex – and astoundingly reliable – functioning of biological clocks. These clocks, Carlos Montemayor argues, make possible representations of duration that are then anchored to representations of simultaneity, and they do so independently of conscious information or representations of the self. Montemayor offers an innovative philosophical explanation of how representations of duration and simultaneity relate to the consciously experienced present moment.

No theory has integrated the research on representations of simultaneity and duration. Minding Time: A Philosophical and Theoretical Approach to the Psychology of Time provides such a theory, showing that the metric constraints on time measurements are not dependent on phenomenal consciousness.
Wie systematisch ist Hegels System?
Das Bild der Philosophie Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegels, wie wir es kennen, ist zu großen Teilen immer noch eine Frucht des Stilisierungswillens seiner Schüler, die nach dem Tode des Meisters dessen Lehre systematischer präsentieren wollten, als diese in Wahrheit gewesen ist. Es gibt viele Untersuchungen zu seinen Teilen, aber kaum ein Buch zum Ganzen des Systems.
Gerade im Blick auf den anstehenden Abschluss der Edition der Vorlesungen innerhalb der Gesammelten Werke müsste aber eine Frage mit Nachdruck gestellt werden: Wie sieht es in Wahrheit mit Hegels System aus? Das System ist nicht so systematisch wie es scheint, oder, anders gesagt, das späthegelsche System ist nicht so stringent, wie man meinen könnte.
Praktiken, Narrationen und Bilder
Nach einer langen Geburtsvergessenheit kündigt sich eine Wiederkehr der Geburt in den Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften an, die durch gravierende Veränderungen im kollektiven und individuellen Imaginären und durch Umbrüche in den Praktiken, Erzählungen und Bildern der Geburt bestimmt wird. Die Geburt gewinnt eine neue Sichtbarkeit in den Medien und in der Öffentlichkeit, zu der auch das medizinische System mit seinen Techniken der Sichtbarmachung des Unsichtbaren beiträgt. Einerseits verstärkt die Professionalisierung der Geburtshilfe die Angst vor der mit der Geburt verbundenen Ungewissheit; andererseits trägt sie zur Erhöhung der Sicherheit von Mutter und Kind bei. Wurde die Geburt von Nachkommen als Ausdruck weiblicher Potenz und Kompetenz begriffen und lange an Eheschließung und Familie gebunden, so vollzieht sich gegenwärtig eine Pluralisierung und Individualisierung der Geburt und der familiären Lebensformen mit der Entstehung neuer konfliktreicher Arbeits-, Lebens-, Gender- und Beziehungsformen.
Trauermusik durch die Jahrhunderte
Dieser Tagungsband bringt das brisante und oft verdrängte Thema des Todes speziell im Zusammenhang mit Musik zur Sprache. Aus unterschiedlichsten Blickwinkeln und Verständnissen heraus vermitteln die einzelnen Beiträge Ansichten und Perspektiven zur Trauermusik. Diese Initiative will nicht nur Darstellung bleiben, sondern Anstoß zu weiteren Reflexionen zu diesem so ‚lebensnahen’ Thema liefern.
This book presents some of the challenges bioethics in Latin America faces today. It considers them through the lenses of vulnerable populations, those incapable of protecting their own interests, such as the illiterate, women in societies disrespectful of their reproductive rights, and research subjects in contexts where resources are scarce.
