Race, Culture, and the Education of African American Adults. Second Edition
This book fills a void in the scholarly treatment of Alain Locke by providing the reader with a comprehensive view of Locke’s vision of mass, and adult, education as instruments for social change. It is representative of the remarkable optimistic manifesto of 1925 in which the “New Negro,” by virtue of a cosmopolitan education emphasizing value pluralism, would become a full participant in American culture. This text delineates Locke’s crucial contribution to the philosophy of adult education and provides insights into how he expected others to use his aesthetic, literary, and anthropological theories as instruments for social and political transformation.

Abstract

In his love songs, Heinrich von Mügeln demonstrates how he as a Sangspruch poet aspires to mastery (Meisterschaft). This is characterised by a complex and varied use of imagery relating to nature, which allows the poet to surpass the representation and negotiation of love in the Minnesang tradition both rhetorically and conceptionally. The texts also draw on learned knowledge and should be read taking the concepts of natural philosophy of the so-called School of Chartres into account. Using the example of the first three songs, the article shows to what extent the texts thus occupy a position that is as significant as it is exemplary in the lyric history of the late Middle Ages.
