Abstract

Kurt Baschwitz (1886-1968) had a lifelong fascination for ‘the riddle of the mass’ in both its visible and invisible forms. He was a major pioneer of communication and media studies on the European continent, an early student of the social, political, and mass psychology of crowds, publics, audiences, and public opinion, as well as a versatile social historian. Half a century after his death, however, he risks being forgotten and misunderstood, falling through the cracks of history.

Abstract

​The goal of this open access book is to develop an approach to clinical health care ethics that is more accessible to, and usable by, health professionals than the now-dominant approaches that focus, for example, on the application of ethical principles. The book elaborates the view that health professionals have the emotional and intellectual resources to discuss and address ethical issues in clinical health care without needing to rely on the expertise of bioethicists. The early chapters review the history of bioethics and explain how academics from outside health care came to dominate the field of health care ethics, both in professional schools and in clinical health care. The middle chapters elaborate a series of concepts, drawn from philosophy and the social sciences, that set the stage for developing a framework that builds upon the individual moral experience of health professionals, that explains the discontinuities between the demands of bioethics and the experience and perceptions of health professionals, and that enables the articulation of a full theory of clinical ethics with clinicians themselves as the foundation. Against that background, the first of three chapters on professional education presents a general framework for teaching clinical ethics; the second discusses how to integrate ethics into formal health care curricula; and the third addresses the opportunities for teaching available in clinical settings. The final chapter, "Empowering Clinicians", brings together the various dimensions of the argument and anticipates potential questions about the framework developed in earlier chapters.

Abstract

From September 1990 to June 1991, the UK deployed 53,462 military personnel in the Gulf War. After the end of the conflict anecdotal reports of various disorders affecting troops who fought in the Gulf began to surface. This mysterious illness was given the name “Gulf War Syndrome” (GWS). This book is an investigation into this recently emergent illness, describing how the illness became a potent symbol for a plethora of issues, anxieties, and concerns. At present, the debate about GWS is polarized along two lines: there are those who think it is a unique, organic condition caused by Gulf War toxins and those who argue that it is probably a psychological condition that can be seen as part of a larger group of illnesses. With an anthropological focus on nuances and subtleties, the author provides a new approach to understanding GWS, one that makes sense of the cultural circumstances, specific and general, that gave rise to the illness.

Abstract

Politische Diskurse und sozialwissenschaftliche Debatten ringen gleichermaßen um eine angemessene Unterscheidung von antiamerikanischen Vorurteilen und legitimer Kritik an den USA. Felix Knappertsbusch leistet einen innovativen Beitrag zur Überwindung dieser Definitionsprobleme, indem er antiamerikanische Sprachgebräuche in Deutschland auf deren Funktionen bei der Herstellung diskriminierender gesellschaftlicher Verhältnisse befragt. Seine detaillierten Analysen von Interview- und Umfragedaten zeigen, wie Antiamerikanismus bei der Reproduktion nationalistischer Identitätskonstruktionen mit fremdenfeindlicher, rassistischer und antisemitischer Rhetorik zusammenspielt.

Abstract

Lesen und Erzählen gehören zu den elementaren Kulturtechniken des Menschen. Dieses Buch bringt beide Perspektiven zusammen und zeigt, wie Leser ihre individuellen Lebensgeschichten über die Rezeption von Literatur verhandeln und sich dabei im Spiegel literarischer Texte selbst entwerfen. Damit wird zugleich eine Einführung in die aktuelle Identitätsforschung gegeben. Zudem wird deutlich, dass Lesen - und vielmehr noch die Reflexion bewegender Leseerfahrungen - gerade in einer Zeit, in der biographische Selbstentwürfe zunehmend vor neue Herausforderungen gestellt werden, eine bedeutsame Ressource für die Verhandlung der eigenen Identität darstellt.
