Abstract

This book analyses in detail the electoral manifestos and programmes presented by twenty-two parties during the European Parliamentary elections in 2009. The research indicates that radical right-wing parties usually have Europhobic impulses, however, radical left-wing parties are, in theory, favourable to European integration, but dispute the direction currently imposed by the EU authorities.

Abstract

Tony Conrad (b. 1940) has been a well-known American artist for more than 50 years. Celebrated as a musician, filmmaker, video and performance artist, he achieved his breakthrough in 1966 with the experimental film The Flicker. In addition to his film work (including the so called Yellow Movies), his violin performances have also achieved broad recognition. This monograph focuses on about 70 video works produced by the artist since 1977, which previously have not been systematically studied. Beginning from Conrad’s earlier rather materialistic approach, in A videographic view of the artist’s vita the text follows the artists shift from experimental film to a more image-driven videographic approach. The chapter Last call for video comments on Tony Conrad influential interaction with the Buffalo-based group of appropriation artists. Then Video as critique of television interrogates the interplay between (video) art and society as a reflection of the telematic culture of the 1980s. The last chapter, Video in tension with music, returns to the beginning of the artist’s career and comments on Tony Conrad’s identity as a musician.

Abstract

The author expands the definition of Turkish American literature beyond fiction written by Americans of Turkish descent to incorporate texts that literally ‘commute’ between two national spheres. This segment of Turkish American literature transcends established paradigms of immigrant life-writing, as it includes works by Turkish authors who do not qualify as American permanent residents and were not born in the United States by Turkish parents (such as Elif Shafak and Halide Edip), and on novels where the Turkish and Ottoman matter decisively prevails over the American (Güneli Gün’s «On the Road to Baghdad» and Alev Lytle Croutier’s «Seven Houses»). Yet, these texts were written in English, were purposefully located on the American market, and simultaneously engage the Turkish and the American cultural and literary traditions.

Abstract

This book develops a new theoretical approach to the explanation of systemic financial crises in industrial and emerging market countries. In contrast to standard models, the present cyclical approach is consistent with the following three stylized facts. Firstly, systemic financial crises are a recurrent phenomenon generally accompanied by excessive boom-bust cycles. Secondly, the frequency of financial crisis cycles is very irregular. Thirdly, most financial crisis cycles are initiated by positive shocks to profit expectations which induce an unsustainable build-up of financial fragility driven by irrational exuberance. The present approach is based on a sophisticated balancesheet structure with many assets, as well as on an expectation formation scheme which combines the rational expectations hypothesis with Keynes’ Beauty Contest Theory.

Abstract

Das in der Wirtschaftspraxis zunehmend beobachtbare Phänomen der Koopetition, welches die Kooperation zwischen zueinander zugleich im Wettbewerb stehender Unternehmen beschreibt, ist aus wissenschaftlicher Perspektive empirisch und theoretisch unzureichend erfasst. Diese Arbeit untersucht daher das strategische Management dieser auf den ersten Blick paradox erscheinenden Interorganisationsbeziehungen am fokalen Beispiel eines Unternehmens der zivilen Flugzeugtriebwerksindustrie, welches im Zuge der kollektiven Erstellung komplexer Produkte (CoPS) durch tiefgreifende Kooperationspartnerschaften eng mit seinen Konkurrenten verbunden ist. Im Mittelpunkt der Analyse steht zum einen die Frage nach den spezifischen Gründen für das Auftreten und Eingehen von Koopetitionsbeziehungen, zum anderen die konkrete Ausgestaltung strategischen Handelns unter koopetitiven Verhältnissen und die Bewältigung des wettbewerblich-kooperativen Spannungsfelds durch die involvierten Unternehmen.

Abstract

Das Thema Kundenzufriedenheit nimmt bei Unternehmen eine immer wichtigere Rolle ein. Die Autorin konzentriert sich auf die Versicherungsbranche und misst den Einfluss der Dienstleistungsqualität auf die Kundenzufriedenheit. Zur Messung von Servicequalität wird SERVQUAL, ein von der Wissenschaft anerkanntes Messinstrument, verwendet. Mit der empirischen Analyse wird nachgewiesen, welchen Einfluss sowohl eine positive als auch eine negativ wahrgenommene Servicequalität der Versicherungsnehmer auf die Zufriedenheit hat. Die Ergebnisse sind sowohl für Versicherungsunternehmen als auch für andere Dienstleistungsunternehmen relevant und zeigen, dass nicht eine pauschale Verbesserung der Dienstleistungsqualität, sondern eine Investition auf Merkmalsebene wesentlich effizienter zur Kundenzufriedenheit führt.

Abstract

In the history of Czech linguistic theory and thought there is hardly a book more controversial than the grammar of Václav J. Rosa (1620-1689), Čechořečnost seu Grammatica Linguae Bohemicae. It appeared in 1672, two years after Comenius's death, at the beginning of the dark age (temno) which came to symbolize for the revivalist tradition, haunted as it was by the past, the decadence of Czech literature, culture and national spirit. Given this, Rosa's grammar (henceforth RG) was inevitably destined to acquire the stigma of the same degenerate qualities which corrupted the nation's very soul, ist language. Durchsuchbare elektronische Faksimileausgabe als PDF. Digitalisiert im Rahmen des DFG-Projektes Digi20 in Kooperation mit der BSB München. OCR-Bearbeitung durch den Verlag Otto Sagner.

Abstract

The essays presented here are the outcome of research carried out by members of IFILNOVA (Institute for Philosophy of New University of Lisbon) in 2016.

The IFILNOVA Permanent Seminar seeks to show how values are relevant to humans (both socially and individually). This seminar is the ‘place’ where different research will converge towards a unified viewpoint. This includes the discussion of the following questions: What is the philosophical contribution to current affairs and decisions that depend crucially on values? Can philosophy make a difference, namely by bringing practical reason to bear on these affairs and decision? And how to do it? Which are our scientific ‘allies’ in this enterprise; psychology, communication sciences, even sociology and history?

This volume shows the connection between practical rationality and values and covers the dimensions ethics, aesthetics and politics.
