Abstract

After President Trump’s election, BREXIT and the widespread rise of far-Right political parties, much public discussion has intensely focused on populism and authoritarianism. In the middle of the twentieth century, members of the early Frankfurt School prolifically studied and theorized fascism and anti-Semitism in Germany and the United States. In this volume, leading European and American scholars apply insights from the early Frankfurt School to present-day authoritarian populism, including the Trump phenomenon and related developments across the globe. Chapters are arranged into three sections exploring different aspects of the topic: theories, historical foundations, and manifestations via social media. Contributions examine the vital political, psychological and anthropological theories of early Frankfurt School thinkers, and how their insights could be applied now amidst the insecurities and confusions of twenty-first century life. The many theorists considered include Adorno, Fromm, Löwenthal and Marcuse, alongside analysis of Austrian Facebook pages and Trump’s tweets and operatic media drama. This book is a major contribution towards deeper understanding of populism’s resurgence in the age of digital capitalism.

Abstract

Come dovremmo vivere? Le odierne società capitalistiche permettono effettivamente alle nostre forme di vita di fiorire? O invece, esponendole a condizioni di dominazione e sfruttamento, cooperano ad arrestarne e inibirne i processi di sviluppo? Sono le domande di fondo a cui Rahel Jaeggi cerca di offrire una risposta in questo volume. Di contro alla neutralità etica liberale, viene rilanciato il tema della «vita offesa» e «alienata», caro alla tradizione della Scuola di Francoforte. Proseguendo e radicalizzando l’operazione critica e diagnostica intrapresa da Axel Honneth, di cui è stata allieva, Jaeggi insiste con decisione sul versante negativo: cioè sulle crisi e i problemi da cui si deve partire per sviluppare una critica delle forme di vita che risulti incisiva ed estranea a ogni paternalismo ed essenzialismo. Una posizione teorica che aggiorna il metodo della critica immanente di matrice hegeliana e, nel contempo, utilizza alcuni strumenti concettuali dell’attuale ontologia sociale per tentare di scardinare l’idea tradizionale dell’economia come qualcosa a sé stante, interpretando così il capitalismo come una forma di vita tra altre.

Abstract

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas's concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays originally published in German and a long theoretical introduction written by the author with English-language readers in mind. This book conveys the rich possibilities of the German perspective for those who employ American and French critical techniques and for students of contemporary critical theory.

Abstract

Reappraisals is a provocative account of the development of modern critical theory in Germany and the United States. Focusing on the period since World War II, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores key debates on the function of critical theory, illuminating the diverse positions and alliances among the participants. Bringing together six essays, as well as new introductory and concluding chapters, Hohendahl interprets and subjects to critical scrutiny many of the central ideas of the Frankfurt School. He first maps the trajectory of neomarxist criticism in Germany to the 1980s. Individual chapters then focus on the work of Georg Lukacs, Theodor W. Adorno, and Jürgen Habermas, and on such issues as the politicization of German criticism after 1965 under the influence of the Frankfurt School.

Abstract

"This book contributes to the foundations of a critical theory of communication as shaped by the forces of digital capitalism. One of the world's leading theorists of digital media Professor Christian Fuchs explores how the thought of some of the Frankfurt School’s key thinkers can be deployed for critically understanding media in the age of the Internet. Five essays that form the heart of this book review aspects of the works of Georg Lukács, Theodor W. Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Axel Honneth and Jürgen Habermas and apply them as elements of a critical theory of communication's foundations. The approach taken starts from Georg Lukács Ontology of Social Being, draws on the work of the Frankfurt School thinkers, and sets them into dialogue with the Cultural Materialism of Raymond Williams.Critical Theory of Communication offers a vital set of new insights on how communication operates in the age of information, digital media and social media, arguing that we need to transcend the communication theory of Habermas by establishing a dialectical and cultural-materialist critical theory of communication. It is the first title in a major new book series 'Critical Digital and Social Media Studies' published by the University of Westminster Press."

Abstract

As the contributions of this volume and its predecessors (Viennese Slavic Almanac Vol. 33 and Sbd. 37 as well as Specimina philologiae Slavicae Supplementband 42) show, there are neither thematic or theoretical prescriptions nor a determination of the slavine for the slavegirl meeting. The articles thus reproduce Slavic linguistics in a very broad spectrum: from generative grammar to functional grammar to dialogue analysis and from Bulgarian to Czech to Russian.

Abstract

Regulierung im Gesundheitswesen ist einerseits spezifisch, andererseits werden zunehmend Regulierungsansätze aus anderen Sektoren übernommen. Dies wirft grundsätzliche rechtswissenschaftliche Fragestellungen auf: Was sind die Besonderheiten des Gesundheitssektors? Dürfen allgemeine Regulierungsformen auf den Gesundheitssektor übertragen werden? Wie beeinflusst die europäische Gesetzgebung diese Entwicklungen? Der Band enthält Beiträge von ausgewiesenen Expertinnen und Experten des Gesundheitsrechts, die sich anhand aktueller Fragen aus den Bereichen Bedarfsplanung, Arzneimittelregulierung, Wettbewerbsrecht sowie der EU-Patientenrichtlinie mit den Möglichkeiten rechtlicher Regulierung im Gesundheitswesen befassen. Dabei wird auch die neuste Gesetzgebung, insbesondere das Versorgungsstrukturgesetz, erörtert.

Abstract

Bildungsgerechtigkeit, Leistungsentwicklung und Begabungsförderung sind drängende Herausforderungen für das deutsche Bildungssystem, wie nationale und internationale Vergleichsstudien (TIMSS, IGLU, PISA) zeigen. Es ist erforderlich, dass benachteiligte und talentierte Kinder auf ihren jeweiligen Kompetenzstufen gezielte Unterstützung und individuelle Förderung erfahren. Das Herausfordern und Fördern von Begabungen und Talenten soll dazu beitragen, dass offensichtliche wie verborgene Potenziale bei Kindern aus sozial benachteiligten Lagen sowie bei Kindern mit Beeinträchtigungen entwickelt und entfaltet werden können. Vom 19. bis 22. September 2018 widmete sich der 6. Münstersche Bildungskongress mit dem Thema „Begabungsförderung, Leistungsentwicklung, Bildungsgerechtigkeit – für alle!“ ebendiesen Chancen und Herausforderungen mit dem Ziel, die Begabungsförderung und Potenzialentwicklung in die Mitte der Gesellschaft zu rücken und so mehr Bildungsgerechtigkeit zu schaffen.Mit über 130 Beiträgen haben Wissenschaftler*innen und Praktiker*innen neue Impulse gesetzt, Themen diskutiert und neue Ansätze vorgetragen. Dank der interessanten Beiträge und anregenden Gespräche wurde der 6. Münstersche Bildungskongress zu einem anspruchsvollen Format wissenschaftlichen Austausches und interdisziplinären Gesprächs. Viele der vorgetragenen und diskutierten Beiträge werden hier zusammengefasst. Dieser erste Band umfasst Beiträge aus der Begabungsforschung mit dem Schwerpunkt zum Verhältnis von Bildungsgerechtigkeit und Begabungsförderung. Die Beiträge verorten sich im frühkindlichen und schulischen Kontext sowie in den Bereichen Schulentwicklung, Haltung von Lehrpersonen in der diversitätssensiblen Begabungsförderung und Umgang mit der eigenen Begabung.

Abstract

Since 2017, the United States and Europe—among many other refugee-hosting countries—have made significant changes in their refugee policies. New visa restrictions, travel bans, and other regulations were imposed by national governments. At the local level, towns and cities responded in different ways: some resisted national policy by declaring themselves “sanctuary cities”, while others supported exclusionary policies. These different responses influenced refugees’ ability to settle and become integrated. The Refugees in Towns (RIT) project at Tufts University explores local urban integration experiences, drawing on the knowledge and perspectives of refugees and citizens in towns around the world. Since 2017, more than 30 RIT case studies have deepened our local knowledge about the factors that enable or obstruct integration, and the ways in which migrants and hosts co-exist, adapt, and struggle with integration. In this Special Issue, seven articles explore urban integration in towns in Europe (Frankfurt-Rödelheim, Germany; Newcastle, UK; Ambertois, France; Italy’s cities; and Belgrade, Serbia) and in North America: Bhutanese refugee-hosting US cities, and Antigonish, Canada. The papers explore how refugees and citizens interact; the role of officials and politicians in enabling or obstructing integration; the social, economic, and cultural impact of migration; and the ways—inclusive or exclusive—locals have responded.
