Abstract

(I) Mobilities in Prehistory. People, resources, objects, sites and territories is the result of the acknowledgement of human mobility as a central subject in archaeological research. It presents itself as a book with a plural and broad range, showcasing several contributions with distinctive theoretical and methodological approaches, multiple empirical case studies and different geographies across a large time span. This holistic and integrated framework is the one that is required to analyse mobility, a complex and multidimensional phenomenon of undeniable importance for the understanding of the dynamics that shaped past communities and their relations, not only between themselves, but also with the territory - dynamics that take shape in artefacts and structures, in built and lived landscapes bestowed to the passage of time. More than a contribution about a subject that explores divergent paths, this book intends, as well, to challenge other investigators to push forward a theme full of potential and relevance in a world that is now, more than ever before, in motion.

Abstract

Epictet, stoic philosopher of the 1st century C.E., was the slave of Epaphroditus, an imperial secretary of Nero and Domitian. Despite his condition, he was able to attend the classes of Musônio Rufo. Later, after his release, he founded a school in Rome, which did not last long, since Domitian expelled the philosophers from the city in 89 C.E. Epictet then went to Nicopolis, where he founded another stoic school, with many students, among them important figures of the Roman Empire. Like Socrates, Epictet wrote nothing. His philosophy came to us through the notes of his disciple Lucio Flavio Arriano Xenophon, who recorded the teachings of Epictet in eight books, four of which were lost, which composed the Diatribes of Epictet. The work is prefaced by a letter from Arriano to a certain Lucius Gelius, in which Arriano affirms that the Diatribes are nothing more than transcriptions of the lessons of Epictet. That is the reason why the work has been attributed since antiquity to Epictet.

Abstract

This publication, entitled “Natural Disasters. A Global Approach” brings together a set of texts devoted specifically to disasters that have as their origin phenomena of nature, full manifestation of the so-called natural hazards. Throughout each of these chapters, we have sought to clarify the conceptual and methodological aspects inherent in each of the risks under analysis, their systematization or typification, effects and consequences, particularly for the Human Being, and examples of their manifestation. Although with distinct characteristics and influenced by different factors, the extent of natural disasters is evident, affecting the generality of human societies and conditioning their activity in almost all parts of the earth´s surface. It is our hope that this work will fulfill its intended purpose and become a valuable working tool and a vehicle for disseminating information and raising awareness of natural disasters.
