Abstract

Remarks on the concept of object of psychology is Richard Avenarius last work and it represents his attempt to establish the fledgling scientific, physiological, experimental psychology on rigorous philosophical basis. With this work the founder of the so-called Empiriocriticism participates to the wide debate on the definition of psychology, along with notable personalities of the time, such as Wilhelm Wundt, Ernst Mach, Oswald Külpe, Hermann Ebbinghaus, Hugo Münsterberg and Edward B. Titchener.

Abstract

Erzählt wird die Geschichte eines Mannes jüdischer Herkunft, der in Breslau seine Begeisterung für die Mykologie entdeckte und schon nach sehr kurzer Zeit zu den Besten seines Faches gehörte. Als zentraler Quellenbestand diente der wissenschaftliche Nachlass von Richard Falck. Die Lebensspanne Falcks erstreckt sich vom Deutschen Kaiserreich über die Weimarer Republik, deren Anhänger er war, und das „Dritte Reich“ bis zur Gründung des Staates Israel. Sie endet in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, wo Falck seine letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte. Hoffnungsvoll baute Falck seit 1910 an der Kgl. Preußischen Forstakademie in Hann. Münden ein modernes Forschungsinstitut für Technische Mykologie auf. Das Blatt wendete sich, als nach dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs radikalisierte Studenten eine antisemitische Hetze gegen Falck und sein Institut entfachten. Der Band schildert Falcks privaten und wissenschaftlichen Lebensweg vor und nach seiner Flucht aus Deutschland 1933. Zentrale Aspekte sind die Umstände seiner Verfolgung und Vertreibung, Stationen der Flucht und des Exils in Palästina (Israel) und den USA sowie Falcks Entwicklung als Forscher. Eine wichtige Frage ist, welche Rolle die Familie, besonders seine Ehefrau Olga, Freunde und Förderer spielten. Diese Studie setzt die Forschungen zur neueren Geschichte der Fakultät für Forstwissenschaften und Waldökologie der Universität Göttingen fort. Mit RichardFalck wird ein Wissenschaftler gewürdigt, der Außergewöhnliches geleistet hat; der engagiert für die akademische Freiheit gekämpft und seinen Glauben an die Möglichkeit friedlicher Koexistenz nicht verloren hat.

Abstract

Dans une formule provocante, Nietzsche déclare que « Wagner résume à lui seul la modernité ». Cet ouvrage, complémentaire de l’étude L’Art total, grandeur et misère d’une utopie (également publié aux Presses universitaires de Rennes), part de la formulation d’un double défi posé par Wagner à la littérature : un défi représenté par Stéphane Mallarmé tout d’abord, selon lequel la littérature devrait « reprendre à la musique un bien qui lui aurait été dérobé » ; un défi associé à Thomas Mann ens...

Abstract

Comment est apparue la catégorie de pensée des phénomènes sociaux que nous englobons aujourd’hui sous le terme d’économie, mot désignant autrefois un ordre de la vie domestique ? Une question de cette importance, pourtant négligée, trouve une réponse dans les écrits sur le commerce qui privilégient la mise en rapport des échanges avec la production plutôt que la résolution de questions pratiques. Deux ouvrages émergent de ce point de vue : le Traicté de l’oeconomie politique (1615) d’Antoine ...

Abstract

Mary Midgley argues in her powerful new book that far from being the opposite of science, myth is a central part of it. In brilliant prose, she claims that myths are neither lies nor mere stories but a network of powerful symbols that suggest particular ways of interpreting the world.

Abstract

Looking at a diverse series of authors--Herman Melville, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Mark Twain, Charles Warren Stoddard, and Jack London--"The Colonizer Abroad" claims that as the U.S. emerged as a colonial power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the literature of the sea became a literature of imperialism. This book applies postcolonial theory to the travel writing of some of America's best-known authors, revealing the ways in which America's travel fiction and nonfiction have both reflected and shaped society.

Abstract

Speech Acts: Richard Grayson and Matt Mullican illuminates the video-based practices of these two internationally acclaimed artists, who use the format of the monologue to construct and narrate hypothetical worlds.British artist Richard Grayson imbues vernacular culture with a sense of classicism, extracting layers of meaning from an array of subject matter, including scientific explanations, flash-mob videos, dinner party conversations and purposefully bad jokes.By contrast, American artist Matt Mullican​ examines the circularities of language, conducting performances under hypnosis to vacillate between primal and public speech. Who is it we are watching as Mullican performs in an hypnotic state? How do we interrogate and categorise what is being created?The book includes video excerpts of Mullican’s first ever performance under hypnosis in Australia (staged in collaboration with Sydney’s National Art School at the iconic Cell Block Theatre, a former nineteenth-century women’s prison) and a selection of Grayson’s scripted compositions, which combine political acuity with dry wit.Author Wes Hill, having curated Grayson and Mullican in a 2015 exhibition at UTS Gallery, unpacks them further in a fascinating essay on both artists, examining their obsessions with language, performance and the nature of interpretation, which arise in their works to engage and sometimes unsettle viewers.

Abstract

Richard Kearney is one of the leading global thinkers in both Continental philosophy and post-metaphysical philosophy of religion, as well as an esteemed Irish professor in philosophy, currently teaching at Boston College, Massachusetts, USA. Professor Kearney first visited South Africa in May as joint visiting academic of the Universities of Stellenbosch, Pretoria and North-West. The visit prompted the publication of this scholarly collected work, authored by South African and international scholars. These specialists in philosophy and religious studies analysed Kearney’s influential work and brought his scholarly perspectives into dialogue with other leading thinkers in the field, both from Africa and abroad. This publication will be the first collective attempt to engage his work from the perspective of the African continent. This collected work contributes significantly in an interdisciplinary way to Ricoeurdian studies. The target audience of the book is peers and specialists in the field of Continental philosophy and philosophy of religion.

Abstract

After 1989, the interest of Czech readers in unconventional, "other" literature, underground and dissidentism, as well as authors of literary modernism and the avant-garde, who did not belong to the official literary canon during socialism, grew. Ladislav Klima, Jakub Demi and also Richard Weiner get into focus. In addition to a series of individual publications since 1996, the long-planned work edition of Weiner is published. Richard Weiner experiences a veritable renaissance. Weiner's multi-layered prose tries to do justice to this work by means of different interpretations: living in a foreign state versus affinity with the homeland, homoerotic inclination versus the claim of a heterosexually normalized society, search for meaning and salvation versus guilt feeling.&#xD;
