Papers from The Fifth Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift

Edited by Hermann J. Real

Containing thirty-one lectures deliv-ered at the Fifth Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift in May 2006, this volume testifies to the broad spectrum of research interests in the Dean of St Patrick’s, Dublin, and his work. The essays have been grouped in nine sections: theoretical approaches (A. C. Elias, Jr, Melinda Rabb); bio-graphical problems (W. B. Carno-chan, João Fróes); bibliographical and textual studies (James E. May, Stephen Karian, James McLaverty); A Tale of a Tub (Marcus Walsh, Allan Ingram, Frank T. Boyle); historical, religious, and political issues (Sean Connolly, Ian Higgins, Howard D. Weinbrot, Toby C. Barnard, Valerie Rumbold); poetry (Clive T. Probyn, John Irwin Fischer, Dirk F. Passmann and Hermann J. Real; James Wool-ley); Swift and Ireland (Joseph McMinn, Sabine Baltes, Sean Moore); Gulliver’s Travels (Ann C. Kelly, Serge Soupel, Clement Hawes, J. A.

Reading Swift

Papers from The Sixth Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift

Edited by Hermann J. Real, Kirsten Juhas and Sandra Simon

Assembling thirty-five lectures delivered at the Sixth Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift in June 2011, this new volume of Reading Swift testifies to an extraordinary spectrum of research interests in the Dean of St Patrick’s, Dublin, and his works. As in the successful earlier volumes, the essays have been grouped in eight sections: biographical aspects (W. B. Carnochan, John Irwin Fischer, Clive T. Probyn, Abigail Williams); bibliographical and textual studies (Ian Gadd, James E. May); A Tale of a Tub (J. A. Downie, Gregory Lynall and Marcus Walsh, Michael McKeon); historical and religious issues (Christopher J. Fauske, Christopher Fox, Ian Higgins, Ashley Marshall, Nathalie Zimpfer); Irish vistas (Sabine Baltes, Toby Barnard, Andrew Carpenter, D. W. Hayton, James Ward); poetry (Daniel Cook, Kirsten Juhas, Stephen Karian, Dirk F. Passmann and Hermann J. Real, James Woolley); Gulliver’s Travels (Barbara M. Benedict, Allan Ingram, Ann Cline Kelly, Melinda Alliker Rabb); and reception and adaptation (Gabriella Hartvig, Clement Hawes, Heinz-Joachim Müllenbrock, Tim Parnell, Peter Sabor, Nicholas Seager, Howard D. Weinbrot). Clearly, the élan vital, which has been such a distinctive feature of Swift scholarship in the past thirty years, is continuing unabated.

This article discusses the functions of images in ancient Near Eastern societies. It points out the continuities as well as the discontinuities in the development of iconic systems from the 10th to the 1st millennium B. C. The function of images in different social contexts is considered as a starting point for a better understanding of the diversity of cultural techniques in relation to the use of images. Such considerations question the teleological character of the iconic evolution, which has largely been taken for granted in ancient Near Eastern art history. Instead it will be argued that a closer look at the adaptation, inclusion or exclusion on the part of the producers and users of images is necessary. This approach may also help to reshape the methodology of art history in ancient Near Eastern archaeology, and to comprehend the history behind the images, which exposes the cultural context in which visual practice developed.

By its nature, interdisciplinary research renders each of us precarious, each of us the amateur—by necessitating as it does adaptation across discipline boundary. And here, I mean intelligent adaptation which is not reactionary but

Wind und Wetter

Kultur - Wissen - Ästhetik

Edited by Georg Braungart and Urs Büttner

Sonne, Regen, Wind und Kälte gehören zu den elementaren Umgebungsbedingungen von Kultur. Als Gegenstände kulturwissenschaftlicher Forschung können sie nur im interdisziplinären Zugriff analysiert werden. Denn das Spektrum kultureller Aneignungsformen der atmosphärischen Phänomene reicht von implizitem, unbegrifflichem und praxeologischem „Wissen“ über symbolische Anverwandlungen bis hin zu ästhetischen Bearbeitungen und abstrakten Formatierungen. In diesem Band sind u.a. Beiträge aus den Literaturwissenschaften, aus Kunstgeschichte und Musikwissenschaft sowie aus Ideen-, Kultur- und Wissensgeschichte versammelt. Das Themenspektrum reicht von theoretischen Überlegungen zur „Stimmung“ über Wettertopoi in der Musik, den Regen in der Malerei bis hin zum Schiffbruch im Barockdrama, dem Nordlicht in Wissenschaft und Literatur oder den Mittagsdämon als einer kulturellen Krisenmetapher.

Erkenntnispoesie

Strategien literarischer Erkenntnis bei Rainald Goetz

Glenna Sinning

Goetz’ wildes Denken zwischen Friedrich Nietzsche und Niklas Luhmann setzt sich mit der Kommunikation der Gesellschaft auseinander – bruchstückhaft, radikal subjektiv, fast schon universalpoetisch.
Seine erkenntnispoetische Literatur versteht sich als Kunst, die das Aufbrechen des Verstehens in einer unübersichtlichen Welt des Geredes begreiflich macht, indem sie das Unbestimmte, das Vieldeutige und das Widersprüchliche einschließt. Die literarische Anverwandlung philosophischer Ansätze u.a. von Nietzsche, Luhmann, Adorno und Derrida bildet das Fundament des ekstatischen Denkens bei Rainald Goetz. Grundlegend für die literarische Erkenntnis ist das dialektisch angelegte Wechselspiel zwischen dionysischer Leidenschaft und apollinischer Analyse. Durch das Offenhalten des Sinns versteht sich der Text als dialogischer Beitrag zur gesellschaftlichen Reflexion im Sinne der Aufklärung.
