Abstract

??aspirations to perfection awaken us to our actual imperfection.? It is in the space between these aspirations and our inability to achieve them that Grant reflects upon imperfection. Grant argues that an awareness of imperfection, defined as both suffering and the need for justice, drive us to an unrelenting search for perfection, freedom, and self-determination. The twenty-one brief chapters of Imperfection develop this governing idea as it relates to the present situation of the God debate, modern ethnic conflicts, and the pursuit of freedom in relation to the uncertainties of personal identity and the quest for self-determination. Known for his exploration of the relationship between Buddhism and violent ethnic conflict in modern Sri Lanka, as well as his contribution to the study of Northern Ireland and the complex relationships among religion, literature, and ethnicity, Grant provides the reader with an analysis of the widespread rise of religious extremism across the globe. Referencing Plato, Van Gogh, Jesus, and the Buddha, he enlightens the reader with both succinct and original insights into human society. Imperfection is the result of an important Canadian public intellectual at work.

Abstract

Far from teleological historiography, the pan-European perspective on Early Modern drama offered in this volume provides answers to why, how, where and when the given phenomena of theatre appear in history. Using theories of circulation and other concepts of exchange, transfer and movement, the authors analyze the development and differentiation of European secular and religious drama, within the disciplinary framework of comparative literature and the history of literature and concepts. Within this frame, aspects of major interest are the relationship between tradition and innovation, the status of genre, the proportion of autonomous and heteronomous creational dispositions within the artefacts or genres they belong to, as well as strategies of functionalization in the context of a given part of the cultural net. Contributions cover a broad range of topics, including poetics of Early Modern Drama; political, institutional and social practices; history of themes and motifs (Stoffgeschichte); history of genres/cross-fertilization between genres; textual traditions and distribution of texts; questions of originality and authorship; theories of circulation and net structures in Drama Studies.

Abstract

Aristotle’s neat compartmentalization notwithstanding (Poetics, ch. 9), historians and playwrights have both been laying claim to representations of the past – arguably since Antiquity, but certainly since the Renaissance. At a time when narratology challenges historiographers to differentiate their “emplotments” (White) from literary inventions, this thirteen-essay collection takes a fresh look at the production of historico-political knowledge in literature and the intricacies of reality and fiction. Written by experts who teach in Germany, Austria, Russia, and the United States, the articles provide a thorough interpretation of early modern drama (with a view to classical times and the 19th century) as an ideological platform that is as open to royal self-fashioning and soteriology as it is to travestying and subverting the means and ends of historical interpretation. The comparative analysis of metapoetic and historiosophic aspects also sheds light on drama as a transnational phenomenon, demonstrating the importance of the cultural net that links the multifaceted textual examples from France, Russia, England, Italy, and the Netherlands.

Abstract

Dutch architect, architectural theorist and urban thinker Rem Koolhaas (born 1944) has been a protagonist of the international architectural avant-garde since the 1970s; his numerous worldwide awards include the Pritzker Prize in 2000 for his lifetime achievement. Through a series of essays, this book interprets his many buildings and projects by drawing on Koolhaas' own theoretical oeuvre of polemics, manifestos, interviews, books such as Delirious New York and his so-called "design patents." In these writings, Koolhaas articulates a design method that links theory and practice, which this book not only orients within architectural history, but also shows how it repositions the function of the authors or the architects themselves.

Abstract

Esta obra indaga acerca del impacto de las crisis mundiales sobre diversas áreas de la cultura, en especial, el pensamiento económico, las ciencias naturales, la filosofía y la literatura. Los estudios reunidos se centran en las primeras décadas del siglo XX, etapa en la que la interdependencia de las diversas regiones del planeta –acompañada por la de las distintas esferas de la vida– alcanzó el estatus de global, es decir, constituyó un único mundo. Es entonces cuando las crisis históricas precedentes convergen con las nuevas crisis mundiales y la percepción de los cambios se modifica sustancialmente. De ahí la importancia de los seis ensayos que este volumen ofrece al lector para comenzar a comprender las transformaciones en las ciencias y el campo cultural dentro de un marco conceptual común, conformado por los modelos de espacios controversiales y crisis de mundo del reconocido filósofo de la ciencia Oscar Nudler.

Abstract

Der Begriff der Solidarität, der in der Zeit nach der Französischen Revolution geprägt wurde, steht in einer spezifischen Spannung zu den liberalen Sozialtheorien des 18. Jahrhunderts. Während er in den Sozialwissenschaften, bei Comte und Durkheim, als zentrale Beschreibungskategorie arbeitsteiliger Gesellschaften fungiert, avanciert er im Solidarismus der Jahrhundertwende (u.a. bei Léon Bourgeois) zum republikanischen Legitimationskonzept des entstehenden Wohlfahrtsstaates. Im 20. Jahrhundert erlebt er dann jedoch theoretisch und programmatisch einen eigentümlichen Niedergang. Hermann-Josef Große Kracht wirft in seiner Ideengeschichte des Solidaritätsbegriffes die Frage nach einem 'Neustart solidaristischer Vernunft' auf.
