  • "Anerkennung" als Prinzip der Kritischen Theorieby Hans-Christoph Schmidt am Busch

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 168.00

    The author shows why implementing the project of a critical social theory in the tradition of the Frankfurt School based on recognition theory can yield promising results. In this context, the category of recognition is of special value because by using recognition theory, social relationships can be both analyzed and criticized. This is shown in the... more...

  • "Cato Peripateticus" ? stoische und peripatetische Ethik im Dialogby Philip Schmitz

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Book 3 of Cicero?s de finibus is generally regarded as an accurate description of Stoic ethics. This study shows that Cicero did not present Stoic orthodoxy but combined it with contemporary peripatetic theory. This has implications for our understanding of Stoa and Peripatos and offers new insights into Cicero?s methods and the philosophical discourse... more...

  • "Einige werden posthum geboren"by Marco Brusotti; Renate Reschke

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 168.00

    Nietzsche?s thinking is unparalleled in its contradictory effects and it continues to be relevant. Even today, opinions on him diverge strongly. Throughout the 20th century, philosophies, art movements and political ideologies have oscillated between euphoria and condemnation, affirmation and an ignoring silence. Incorrect and abusive readings in fascist... more...

  • 'Germinal' and Zola's Philosophical and Religious Thoughtby Philip Walker

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1984; US$ 98.00

    Zola's masterpiece of working life, Germinal (1885), exposes the inhuman conditions of miners in northern France in the 1860s. By Zola's death in 1902 it had come to symbolize the call for freedom from oppression so forcefully that the crowd which gathered at his State funeral chanted "Germinal! Germinal!"While it is a dramatic novel... more...

  • "Gott" in der Dichtung Rainer Maria Rilkesby Fischer

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2014; US$ 51.04

    Das Phänomen der Gegenwart ?Gottes? im Leben, das in Rilkes Dichtung zutage tritt, mag heutzutage bei manchen ein ?Erstaunen? hervorrufen, das aber zur ?Orientierung im Denken? gehört, die Kant als Aufgabe der Philosophie verstanden hat. Im Brief des jungen Arbeiters erwähnt Rilke seine auch ihn überraschende »Erfahrung«, dass ihm »?Gott? zu sagen,... more...

  • "Herbst des Mittelalters"?by Martin Pickavé; Jan A. Aertsen

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 307.00

    The relationship between the Late Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times is still being controversially discussed. Some view the 14th and 15th century as a period of decline, others emphasize this era?s formative and innovative role in modern times. Volume 31 of Miscellanea Mediaevalia takes an interdisciplinary look at this period while addressing... more...

  • "It is the Spirit that Gives Life"by Gitte Buch-Hansen

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 224.00

    Since Origen and Chrysostom, John?s Gospel has been valued as the most spiritual among the New Testament writings. Although Origen recognizes the Stoic character of John?s statement that ?God is pneuma? (4:24), an examination of the gospel in light of Stoic physics has not yet been carried out. Instead the Johannine spirit has been absorbed into the... more...

  • "Jasagen zum Leben bis in den Tod"by Nadine Hartmann

    Nadine Hartmann geht dem gemeinsamen Interesse des französischen Philosophen Georges Bataille und des US-amerikanischen Autors Norman Mailer an Phänomenen der Ekstase und anderen Grenzbereichen des Lebens nach. Sie beschreibt, wie beide Autoren subjektive Souveränität in der Überschreitung ermöglicht sehen und kontextualisiert diese Annahme in existentialistischen... more...
