Precision and Contingency. An Area of Tension in the Assignment of Scientific Concepts

Given the fact that the scientific discourse on education is based on educational- scientific concepts, it is surprising that the methodology of the assignment of these concepts is hardly addressed and reflected. This article raises a tension of the requirements of concepts in educational science between precision, accuracy and exactness on the one hand; and contingency, openness, and dynamics on the other hand. In this article we reject attempts to resolve the tension to only one side, which would mean to give preference to either precision or contingency and neglect the other side. In contrast we sketch a model for the assignment of educational-scientific concepts that unites both sides of the tension: If precision is understood as a requirement for the concept as a product, and the consideration of contingency is understood as a requirement for the process of the assignment, it is possible to assign concepts that both are precise and consider their contingency.

Vierteljahrsschrift für wissenschaftliche Pädagogik

Im Auftrag der Görres-Gesellschaft

Founded in 1925, the "Vierteljahrsschrift für wissenschaftliche Pädagogik" has been well established for decades as a highly respected forum for debates on educational topics. With its distinct focus on the humanities and cultural studies, the journal sees itself as a medium of communicative dialogue, which is able to highlight its distinctive features in comparison with other sciences and to communicate these based on a theoretical and practice-oriented perspective.
In these attempts to clarify and gain understanding from a theoretical perspective, the major focus is on the way the educational process progresses, on those social, cultural, political and unconsciously effective factors and phenomena that are involved as well as on the participants (in their various different contexts). Against the background of anthropological, educational and theoretical as well as methodological perspectives, performative actions and their staging at the intersection of individual, institution, and society are considered, in order to advance, on the one hand, the understanding of pedagogical heterogeneities, and on the other hand, to develop further educational science knowledge.
Clarifications of empirical diversity that are ideologically critical and profoundly founded on theory are aimed to help to understand and differentiate pedagogical contexts in their complexity.

According to Erich Zenger, Psalm 82 has been considered as one of the most “spectacular” texts of the Old Testament. This psalm not only declares the death of other gods (אלהים) but also defines commitment towards the poor as a criterion for being true god. Within the debate of different methodological approaches to biblical texts, the present article first discusses some selected historical-critical questions of Psalm 82. It then asks the questions, Who are the poor in this Psalm? and Is it accidental that Psalm 82 speaks of the one אלהים in opposition to the other אלהים ? These questions will be answered by offering a canonical exegesis of this Psalm within the corpus of the Psalms of Asaph.

„A little Drama“ (G. M. Tucker)

Zur literarischen Form von Am 7,10–17

Alessandro Casagrande


The use of a narrative imperfect in Am 7:10–17 after 7:1–9 and the abrupt shift to 8:1–3 frequently compelled critics to determine its literary form. For diachronic studies defining classifications include ‘third-party report’ and ‘apophthegma’. By contrast, synchronic studies emphasize the contextual integration of Am 7:10–17 and concentrate on a narrative analysis. Within this focus it is striking, that the passage is often associated with a ‘drama’ but without assessing the methodological ramifications of such a claim. The present article takes this ‘synchronic gap’ up and relates it to approaches to view drama as a possible genre for prophetic books. In doing so, a reading of Am 7:10–17 as part of a narrator-mediated discourse using a dramatic mode shows that the passage can be deemed an entrance with three speeches integrated into the wider context of 7:1–8:3. Particularly the classification of 7:10a, 12aα, 14aα as narrator’s discourse using a dramatic mode makes this claim plausible.

Dieser Beitrag fasst die Ergebnisse eines Langzeitforschungsprojekts zum Verhältnis zwischen Katholischer Kirche und moderner Wissenschaft zusammen, die durch die in den Historischen Archiven der Römischen Kongregation der Inquisition und des Index der verbotenen Bücher aufbewahrten Dokumente gewonnen wurden. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine zusammenfassende Beschreibung der Struktur und Inhalte des ersten Bandes der Ausgabe (welche in sieben Bänden erscheinen soll), die die Dokumente aus dem 16. Jahrhundert sowie Dekrete von Inquisition und Index, Censurae, Briefe, Verkündigungen von Konsultoren und Leseerlaubnisse reproduziert. Besonderes Augenmerk gebührt den Kriterien für die Auswahl von Dokumenten und den Forschungs-methoden.

Questo saggio riassume i risultati di un progetto di ricerca a lunga scadenza sul rapporto tra la Chiesa Cattolica e le scienze moderne, che fu studiato tramite la documentazione nell'Archivio Storico della Congregazione Romana dell'Inquisizione e dell'Indice dei libri proibiti. Si tratta di una descrizione riassuntiva della struttura e del contenuto del primo tomo dell'edizione (che apparirà in sette tomi), che riproduce i documenti del Cinquecento nonché decreti dell'Inquisizione e dell'Indice, censurae, lettere, annunci dei consultori e permessi di lettura. Attenzione particolare spetta ai criteri per la selezione dei documenti e alla metodologia della ricerca.

Gli uomini della censura

Dalla storia istituzionale alla storia intellettuale


Philippe Boutry

Die zwei Bände der Prosopographie von Römischer Inquisition und Indexkongregation 1814-1817, erarbeitet von Dr. Herman H. Schwedt in Zusammenarbeit mit Tobias Lagatz und publiziert unter der wissenschaftlichen Leitung von Professor Hubert Wolf, sind ein herausragender Beitrag zur Geschichte der Römischen Kurie und zum Papsttum des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die vorliegende beeindruckende Prosopographie eröffnet eine wichtige Etappe und zudem neue Wege zur historischen Verständlichkeit. Im vorliegenden Beitrag werden einige Beobachtungen beleuchtet, in Bezug auf die Geschichtsschreibung, die Methodologie oder in Bezug auf die historische Situation des Werkes und auf den Beitrag der Prosopographie der Konsultoren des Index zu einer Vertiefung einer kulturellen und intellektuellen Geschichte der Römischen Kurie des 19. Jahrhunderts; außerdem wird ein allgemeiner chronologischer und geographischer Vergleich angestellt werden.

I due volumi della Prosopographie von Römischer Inquisition und Indexkongregation 1814-1917, elaborati dal Dottor Herman H. Schwedt colla collaborazione di Tobias Lagatz e pubblicati sotto la direzione scientifica del professore Hubert Wolf, costituiscono un contributo fondamentale alla storia della Curia Romana e del Papato dell'Ottocento. Apre questa impressionnante prosopografia una tappa importante e delle vie nuove all'intelligenza storica. Si vorrebbe qui delineare brevemente alcune osservazioni di tipo storiografico, metodologico o prospettivo sulla situazione storiografica dell'opera, sul contributo della prosopografia dei consultori dell'Indice all'approfondimento di una storia culturale ed intellettuale della Curia Romana dell'Ottocento, e infine sulle prospettive di un paragone di tipo insieme cronologico e geografico.

The two volumes of the Prosopographie von Römischer Inquisition und Indexkongregation 1814-1817, compiled by Dr. Herman H. Schwedt in collaboration with Tobias Lagatz and published under the academic guidance of Professor Hubert Wolf, may be characterized as an outstanding contribution to the history of the Roman Curia and the papacy in the nineteenth century. The impressing prosopography opens an important stage as well as new ways towards a historic comprehensibility. This essay attempts to illuminate some observations concerning historiography, methodology or the historical situation of the opus and the contribution of the prosopography of the Index's consultors to a consolidation of the cultural and intellectual history of the Roman Curia in the nineteenth century; moreover, a general chronological and geographic comparison is presented.

Der historische Muhammad in der islamischen Theologie

Zur Kriterienfrage in der Leben-Muhammad-Forschung


Zishan Ahmad Ghaffar

Wie können wir wissen, wer der historische Muhammad war? Welche Rolle spielt diese historiographische Fragestellung in der islamischen Theologie? Der Autor stellt die Frage nach zuverlässigen Kriterien für eine historische Rekonstruktion von Muhammad.
Zishan Ghaffar stellt dabei die Leben-Muhammad-Forschung der Leben-Jesu-Forschung gegenüber. Dieser vergleichende Ansatz erleichtert die Bestimmung der wichtigsten Kriterien für die historische Frage nach Muhammad. Mit dieser Grundlage hat der Autor eine geschichtshermeneutische Voraussetzung geschaffen, um Muhammed in einen breiten Kontext zu setzen, beispielsweise seine Bedeutung in der urmuslimischen Gemeinde in der spätantiken Umwelt und seine Einbeziehung in die islamische Theologie.
