This essay considers two industrial sites, an old open-pit mine in Malmberget in northern Sweden and the closed Ignalina nuclear power plant in northeastern Lithuania, to see to what extent each might possibly become part of local heritage processes. Both sites once represented visions of progress and modernity, but today they present problems of waste and unemployment that evoke ambiguous feelings in their communities. These are wounded landscapes that are difficult to heal. However, the physical scars are also part of the stories that are the fabric of heritage, and these landscapes of waste may reemerge as new landscapes of memory and community identity that are directed toward the future.

Abstract

This article investigates the possible functions of empathic interpersonal engagement in the context of medicine and health care. While empathy can be understood in different ways on a theoretical level – as an embodied process of resonance and synchronization, as an affective process of emotional sharing, as a cognitive process of understanding the other, or as a narrative process of externalizing and communicating personal experiences – it is often called for on a normative level as a desideratum in the competence of medical professionals. We address this issue by introducing different models of the relationality between doctors and patients, in order to clarify which dimensions of empathy are relevant in which model and raise the question whether empathy is more than a nice-to-have virtue on the side of the professionals.

JAN STORM VAN LEEUWEN An unknown book of William of Orange discovered Among the many erudite and highly to be commended articles which Herman de la Fontaine Verwcy bequeathed to those who love Dutch books of the six- teenth and seventeenth centuries and specialize in them, the one on the bind- ings made for William of Orange is certainly not the least. In its present form it first appeared in Q,u?rendo, while the part on the Parisian bindings came out previously in the Hellinga festschrift and the whole article, now in Dutch, was published in the fourth and final volume
