Abstract

Die gängigsten Variablen zur Erklärung unterschiedlicher Umweltbelastungsniveaus sind die Höhe und das Wachstum der Wirtschaftsleistung. Dieses Buch möchte den Blickwinkel erweitern und untersucht die Relevanz des nationalen Politikstils für den Erfolg von Umweltpolitik. Sind Staaten mit konsensualem oder eher solche mit konfliktärem Politikstil auf dem Gebiet der Umweltpolitik erfolgreicher? Macht sich eine strategieorientierte Politik ökologisch bezahlt? Anhand einer quantitativen Analyse der OECD-Staaten wird der Effekt des nationalen Politikstils auf umweltökonomische Erfolgsgrößen untersucht.

Abstract

"How are languages and cultures affected not only by the landscapes we live in, but also by the ways in which we make our way through them? Can railway fiction contribute to illuminating questions related to a nation’s history and identity? And what makes the stories about Russian, Soviet and post-Soviet trains different from railway literature with origins in other railway nations?

Outside the country’s borders Russian and Soviet trains are likely to be associated with exotic journeys, particularly by the Trans-Siberian railway. This book explores other aspects of this vast empire’s railways. Through philological and cultural analyses, primarily of literary fiction, but also of popular cultural and documentary texts, the author demonstrates how and why the railway gradually became part of the Russian and Soviet peoples’ culture and national consciousness. She describes how metaphors and aphorisms related to trains were applied in propaganda, and subsequently became subject to linguistic play and literary deconstruction. And last, but not least this monograph shows how the railway forms a dark backdrop for literary representations of deportations, forced labour and prison camps.

The book addresses specialists and students of Russian, as well as readers with a general interest in Russia, languages, literature and cultural theory."

Abstract

Philosophers and rappers jointly explore in discussions, texts, songs, comments and spontaneous associations what philosophy of hip-hop means, the focus being on living philosophyzing. Philosophyzing in the sense of hip-hop requires getting personally involved. What is dreaded is not amateurism but copying the thoughts of others. In the confrontation with the thoughts of others, your own thoughts flash through your head. Authenticity, respectively realness and creativity: These are the ethical values of hip-hop. The philosophy of hip-hop does not mean talking philosophy but doing philosophy – namely when facing the challenges of modern life. The philosophy of hip-hop means performing what's happening.

Abstract

In the 'life' of technical objects and infrastructures repair and maintenance are central practices, both economically and culturally. This book foregrounds these activities, rarely examined until now, and looks into the forms of knowledge of different cultures of repair. In the process, the expertise and political ambitions of human actors receive as much consideration as the internal dynamics of the objects themselves. The articles focus on practices such as watch or computer repair, as well as on spaces such as the home, the hospital, the Repair Cafe, and the city of the 'Global South'. In addition, the book also investigates the extent to which repair and repair-friendly design can contribute to more sustainability.
