Edited by Ludger Honnefelder, Roberto Hofmeister Pich and Roberto Hofmeister Pich

The scholarly purpose of the volume is to restate and describe the historical reception of John Duns Scotus’ meta-physics, which, by taking the real concept of “being as being” as the first object of first philosophy, laid the ground-work for what scholars have called “the second beginning of metaphysics” in Western philosophy.
Scotus outlined a theory of transcendental concepts that includes an analysis of the concept of being and its prop-erties, and a general analysis of modalities and intrinsic modes, paving the way for a view of metaphysics as a sci-ence of “possible being.” From the fourteenth to the eighteenth century Scotists invented and developed special concepts that could embrace both real being and the being of reason. The investigation of the metaphysics of the transcendentals by subsequent thinkers who were guided by Scotus is the central focus of the present collective book.

Gallipoli 1915/16

Britanniens bitterste Niederlage

Series:

Frank Jacob

Der Name Gallipoli steht bis heute für den vielleicht verheerendsten Misserfolg der britischen Militärgeschichte, zugefügt durch das Osmanische Reich. Bei Gallipoli bewährte sich der junge türkische Befehlshaber Mustafa Kemal so brillant, dass er zum Volkshelden wurde. Sein Weg an die Spitze eines erneuerten türkischen Staates nahm dort seinen Anfang.
Die britischen Planungen für Gallipoli glichen der Büchse der Pandora: Dem Osmanischen Reich sollte die Kontrolle über die strategisch wichtige Meerenge am Bosporus entrissen werden. Ein hoch gestecktes Ziel und die Selbstüberschätzung des Empire spielten einander in die Hände. Einmal in Gang gesetzt, ergaben sich immer neue Debakel aus der schlechten Vorbereitung der Operation; die Einheiten des Empires hatten dafür mit hohem Blutzoll zu büßen. Der Name Gallipoli warnt bis heute vor leichtfertigen Planungen durch nachlässige und arrogante Befehlshaber. Neben der Schilderung von Vorgeschichte und des opferreichen Schlachtverlaufs zeigt dieses Buch auch, wie die Kriegsparteien sich bis heute jeweils an Gallipoli erinnern.

Konrad von Gelnhausen

Die kirchenpolitischen Schriften

Series:

Hans-Jürgen Becker

Konrad von Gelnhausen griff die Vorstellung, dass nur ein Konzil die durch das Schisma von 1378 hervorgerufene Kirchenspaltung werde beseitigen können, auf und entwickelt sie weiter. Mit seinen kirchenpolitischen Schriften trug er maßgeblich zum Erfolg der konziliaren Theorie bei.
Das Große Schisma von 1378–1417 hatte die abendländische Kirche gespaltet. Erst die Einberufung eines allgemeinen Konzils öffnete den Weg zu seiner Beseitigung. Bei der Entwicklung der zugrundeliegenden „konziliaren Idee“ spielte Konrad von Gelnhausen eine bedeutende Rolle. In der Abhandlung zeigt der Autor auf, worin genau diese Rolle besteht, aus welchen Wurzeln Konrad schöpfte und wie sein Werk dazu beitrug, den Weg zu den Reformkonzilien des 15. Jahrhunderts vorzubereiten. Dies analysiert der Autor mithilfe einer mit Übersetzungen versehenen Edition seiner kirchenpolitischen Schriften.

Simplify, simplify! Brevity, Plainness and Their Complications in American Literature and Culture

Festschrift for Bernd Engler on the Occasion of His 65th Birthday

Series:

Edited by Isabell Klaiber, Oliver Scheiding and Jan Stievermann

This volume explores the varieties of the short form in American literature, art, and culture as well as different ideas and aesthetics of simplicity, plainness, and brevity from the 19th century to the present. The contributors discuss how these ideas were translated into widely diverging practices, serving an equally broad spectrum of cultural and political functions. The essays survey a range of media and genres, including short fiction, plays, popular rhetoric, songs, photography, film, and Twitter.

Rivers in the Mediterranean have always been hotspots of social formation. From antiquity to the present, rivers were important sources of fresh water, transport routes and energy suppliers as well as spaces of interaction between sea, coast and hinterland. This volume takes up recent debates on the spatial turn and global history, which have fundamentally changed notions of the Mediterranean as a natural given and of larger areas as well-defined entities. After an introduction to the relevant research contexts, it offers a collection of articles on the conceptualization of river histories, the Mediterranean and its rivers, and river studies from around the globe

War and Memorials

The Age of Nationalism and the Great War

Series:

Edited by Frank Jacob and Kenneth Pearl

War Memorials were an important element of nation building, for the invention of traditions, and the establishment of historical traditions. Especially nationalist remembrance in the late 19th century and the memory of the First World War stimulated a memorial boom in the period which the present book is focusing on.
The remembrance of war is nothing particularly new in history, since victories in decisive battles had been of interest since ancient times. However, the age of nationalism and the First World War triggered a new level of war remembrance that was expressed in countless memorials all over the world. The present volume presents the research of international specialists from different disciplines within the Humanities, whose research is dealing with the role of war memorials for the remembrance of conflicts like the First World War and their perceptions within the analyzed societies. It will be shown how memorials – in several different chronological and geographical contexts – were used to remember the dead, remind the survivors, and warn the descendants.

West-Eastern Mirror

Virtue and Morality in the Chinese-German Dialogue

Series:

Edited by Ralf Koerrenz, Andreas Schmidt, Klaus Vieweg and Elizabeth Watts

West-Eastern mirror discusses the formative cultural traditions in Germany/Europe and China with a special focus on the increasingly important aspects of “Virtue and morality”.At present, there are increasing difficulties in understanding the ‘other’ in their cultural framing. In view of the fact that economic or scientific exchange on an international level is a matter of necessity, in recent years the need to ensure the cultural prerequisites has become even more urgent. First, the title deals with the cultural influences in Europe (Judaism, Christianity, Enlightenment) and China (Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism). In the second part, the focus encompasses a dialogue of European philosophy, with Rousseau, Herbart, Gadamer and Hegel.
