      Migration

      Changing Concepts, Critical Approaches

      by Doris Bachmann-Medick, Jens Kugele

      Recent debates on migration have demonstrated the important role of concepts in academic and political discourse. The contributions to this collection revisit established analytical categories in the study of migration such as border regimes, orders of belonging, coloniality, translation, trans/national digital culture and memory. Exploring notions, images and realities of migration in their cultural framings, this volume sheds light on the powerful work of these concepts. Including perspectives on migration from history, visual studies, pedagogy, literary and cultural studies, cultural anthropology and sociology, it explores the complex scholarly and popular notions of migration with particular focus on their often unspoken assumptions and political implications. Revisiting established analytical tools in the study of migration, the interdisciplinary contributions explore new approaches and point to the importance of conceptual nuance extending beyond academic discourse.

      Deutsche Ideologie. Zur Kritik der Philosophie

      Manuskripte in chronologischer Anordnung

      by Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Gerald Hubmann, Ulrich Pagel

      Die Manuskripte von Marx und Engels zur Kritik der Deutschen Ideologie sind fragmentarisch geblieben. Die vorliegende Ausgabe präsentiert sie in zentralen Auszügen und chronologisch geordnet. Damit erlaubt sie einen aufschlussreichen ‚Blick in die Werkstatt‘. Im Zuge der grundsätzlichen Kritik an der deutschen Philosophie und am deutschen Sozialismus entwickeln Marx und Engels den eigenen terminologischen und theoretischen Rahmen: Begriffe differenzieren sich aus, Manuskriptfragmente über Arbeitsteilung sowie das Verhältnis von Sein und Bewusstsein entstehen. Die Texte werden hier auf der Grundlage der historisch-kritischen Edition in der Marx-Engels-Gesamtausgabe (MEGA) in chronologischer Anordnung wiedergegeben und durch wichtige Textvarianten ergänzt. Beigegebene Manuskriptseiten im Faksimile-Druck zeigen die intensive gemeinsame Arbeit von Marx und Engels, ebenso aber auch den Entwurfscharakter und den schlechten Erhaltungszustand vieler Manuskripte.

      The Proletarian Dream

      Socialism, Culture, and Emotion in Germany, 1863–1933

      by Sabine Hake

      The proletariat never existed—but it had a profound effect on modern German culture and society. As the most radicalized part of the industrial working class, the proletariat embodied the critique of capitalism and the promise of socialism. But as a collective imaginary, the proletariat also inspired the fantasies, desires, and attachments necessary for transforming the working class into a historical subject and an emotional community. This book reconstructs this complicated and contradictory process through the countless treatises, essays, memoirs, novels, poems, songs, plays, paintings, photographs, and films produced in the name of the proletariat. The Proletarian Dream reads these forgotten archives as part of an elusive collective imaginary that modeled what it meant—and even more important, how it felt—to claim the name "proletarian" with pride, hope, and conviction. By emphasizing the formative role of the aesthetic, the eighteen case studies offer a new perspective on working-class culture as a oppositional culture. Such a new perspective is bound to shed new light on the politics of emotion during the main years of working-class mobilizations and as part of more recent populist movements and cultures of resentment.

      Tomb – Memory – Space

      Concepts of Representation in Premodern Christian and Islamic Art

      by Francine Giese, Anna Pawlak, Markus Thome

      From an intercultural perspective, this book focuses on aesthetic strategies and forms of representation in premodern Christian and Islamic sepulchral art. Seeing the tomb as an interface for eschatological, political, and artistic debate, the contributions analyze the diversity of memorial space configurations. The subjects range from the complex interaction between architecture and tomb topography through to questions relating to the funereal expression of power and identity, and to practices of ritual realization in the context of individual and collective memory.

      Interpretations of Jihad in South Asia

      An Intellectual History

      by Tariq Rahman

      In the wake of radical Islamist terrorist attacks described as jihad worldwide and in South Asia, it is imperative that there should be a book-length study of this idea in this part of the world. The focus of the study is the idea of jihad with its changing interpretations mostly those available in exegetical literature of key figures in South Asia. The hermeneutic devices used to understand the meaning of the Quranic verses and the Prophetic traditions relating to jihad will be the focus of this study. The main thrust of the study is to understand how interpretations of jihad vary. It is seen as being both defensive and aggressive by traditionalists; only defensive and mainly about moral improvement by progressive Muslims; and being insurrectionist, aggressive, eternal and justifying violence against civilians by radical Islamists. One purpose of the book is to understand how the radical interpretation came to South Asia. The book also explains how theories about jihad are influenced by the political and social circumstances of the period and how these insights feed into practice legitimizing militant movements called jihad for that period.

      Alienated Wisdom

      Enquiry into Jewish Philosophy and Scepticism

      by Giuseppe Veltri

      The present study addresses problems of an epistemological nature which hinge on the question of how to define Jewish thought. It will take its start in an ancient question, that of the relationship between Jewish culture, Greek philosophy, and then Greco-Roman (and Christian) thought in connection with the query into the history and genealogy of wisdom and knowledge. Our journey into the history of the denomination ‘Jewish philosophy’ will include a leg that will lead us to certain declarations of political, moral, and scientific principles, and then on to the birth of what is called philosophia perennis or, in Christian circles, prisca theologia. Our subject of inquiry will thus be the birth of the concept of Jewish philosophy, Jewish theology and Jewish philosophy of religion. A special emphasis will fall on the topic treated in the last part of this study: Jewish scepticism, a theme that involves a philosophical attitude founded on dialectical "enquiry", as the etymology of the Greek word skepsis properly means.

      4 Baruch

      Paraleipomena Jeremiou

      by Dale C. Allison

      This is the first full-scale, verse-by-verse commentary on 4 Baruch. The pseudepigraphon, written in the second century, is in large measure an attempt to address the situation following the destruction of the temple in 70 CE by recounting legends about the first destruction of the temple, the Babylonian captivity, and the return from exile. 4 Bruch is notable for its tale about Jeremiah's companion, Abimelech, who sleeps through the entire exilic period. This tale lies behind the famous Christian legend of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus and is part of the genealogy of Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle." Allison's commentary draws upon an exceptionally broad range of ancient sources in an attempt to clarify 4 Baruch's original setting, compositional history, and meaning.

      Anschauung und Begriff

      Grundzüge eines Systems der Begriffsbildung

      by Max Brod, Felix Weltsch, Claus Zittel, Claus Zittel, Axel Pichler

      Brod und Weltsch charakterisieren ihr Werk als eine Art „Monographie über verschwommene Vorstellungen". Sie zeigen, dass die von der philosophischen Phänomenologie Franz Brentanos und Husserls aufgestellten Postulate der Evidenz und genauen Beschreibung nur im Bereich der Wissenschaft statthaft sind, ansonsten aber unsere Wahrnehmungswelt von einer Vielzahl von vagen, unbestimmten, verschwommenen Sinnes- und Gedächtniseindrücken bestimmt wird, die eine empirisch arbeitende Psychologie ebenso wie die philosophische Erkenntnistheorie mit einzufangen und ihren Funktionen zu explizieren habe. Diese Schrift ist daher ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um ein differenzierteres Bild der epistemischen Konfiguration der Prager Moderne zu zeichnen und grundsätzlich die Möglichkeiten einer psychologischen Ästhetik auszuloten. Die Neu-Edition dieser Schrift öffnet aber auch wieder einen lange verschütteten Zugang zur Literatur der Prager Moderne, insbesondere für das Erzählwerk Kafkas. Die Edition des lange vergriffenen Werkes enthält eine Einleitung sowie ausgewählte Literatur zur Rezeption des Werks.

      Metamathematics and the Philosophical Tradition

      by William Boos, Florence S. Boos

      Metamathematics and the Philosophical Tradition is the first work to explore in such historical depth the relationship between fundamental philosophical quandaries regarding self-reference and meta-mathematical notions of consistency and incompleteness. Using the insights of twentieth-century logicians from Gödel through Hilbert and their successors, this volume revisits the writings of Aristotle, the ancient skeptics, Anselm, and enlightenment and seventeenth and eighteenth century philosophers Leibniz, Berkeley, Hume, Pascal, Descartes, and Kant to identify ways in which these both encode and evade problems of a priori definition and self-reference. The final chapters critique and extend more recent insights of late 20th-century logicians and quantum physicists, and offer new applications of the completeness theorem as a means of exploring "metatheoretical ascent" and the limitations of scientific certainty. Broadly syncretic in range, Metamathematics and the Philosophical Tradition addresses central and recurring problems within epistemology. The volume’s elegant, condensed writing style renders accessible its wealth of citations and allusions from varied traditions and in several languages. Its arguments will be of special interest to historians and philosophers of science and mathematics, particularly scholars of classical skepticism, the Enlightenment, Kant, ethics, and mathematical logic.

      Westerweel Group: Non-Conformist Resistance against Nazi-Germany

      A Joint Rescue Effort of Dutch Idealists and Dutch-German Zionists

      by Hans Schippers

      The book about the Westerweel Group tells the fascinating story about the cooperation of some ten non-conformist Dutch socialists and a group of Palestine Pioneers who mostly had arrived in the Netherlands from Germany and Austria the late thirties. With the help of Joop Westerweel, the headmaster of a Rotterdam Montessori School, they found hiding places in the Netherlands. Later on, an escape route to France via Belgium was worked out. Posing as Atlantic Wall workers, the pioneers found their way to the south of France. With the help of the Armée Juive, a French Jewish resistance organization, some 70 pioneers reached Spain at the beginning of 1944. From here they went to Palestine. Finding and maintaining the escape route cost the members of the Westerweel Group dear. With some exceptions, all members of the group were arrested by the Germans. Joop Westerweel was executed in August 1944. Other members, both in the Netherlands and France, were send to German concentration camps, where some perished.

      Western Ways

      Foreign Schools in Rome and Athens

      by Frederick Whitling

      Western Ways is the first comparative study of its kind of foreign schools of archaeology in Rome and Athens. Through the foreign schools in the two cities, the book discusses the organisation of the study of classical archaeology, and offers new perspectives on research funding, national prestige and international collaboration in the period during which archaeology became a scientific area of study. It is a study in the failure of ideals, but also of success. The book focuses on the years spanning the Second World War, and shows how the foreign schools have interwoven prestige with scholarship, and how this dynamic was placed under pressure during the war years and in the immediate post-war period, in effect preserving a status quo: internationalisation was perceived as a means to safeguard the future of classical studies. The “classical”, this book suggests, is not national, but the study of it has been. The potential specialist readership spans the fields of classical archaeology, classical studies, classical reception, the history of ideas, art history, as well as nineteenth and twentieth century European history. The book gives an analytical account of foreign schools in Rome and Athens in the interplay between national and international perspectives.

      The Indigenous Lens?

      Early Photography in the Near and Middle East

      by Markus Ritter, Staci G. Scheiwiller

      The historiography of early photography has scarcely examined Islamic countries in the Near and Middle East, although the new technique was adopted very quickly there by the 1840s. Which regional, local, and global aspects can be made evident? What role did autochthonous image and art traditions have, and which specific functions did photography meet since its introduction? This collective volume deals with examples from Iran, the Ottoman Empire, and the Arab lands and with the question of local specifics, or an „indigenous lens." The contributions broach the issues of regional histories of photography, local photographers, specific themes and practices, and historical collections in these countries. They offer, for the first time in book form, a cross-section through a developing field of the history of photography.

      Parteiendemokratien

      Zur Legitimation der EU-Mitgliedstaaten durch politische Parteien

      by Andreas von Gehlen

      Etablierte Parteien haben in den Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union zuletzt an Rückhalt durch die Bevölkerung verloren. Die Parteiendemokratien selber werden jedoch nicht signifikant infrage gestellt. Dies drängt die Frage auf, warum politische Parteien Funktionen wahrnehmen können, die einen maßgeblichen Beitrag zur demokratischen Legitimation staatlicher Herrschaftsausübung leisten. Die Komplexität dieser Frage erfordert eine interdisziplinäre Vorgehensweise: Nach den philosophischen Grundlagen von Legitimation ist ihren historischen Konzeptionen nachzugehen. Hierauf bauen die normativen Verankerungen der heutigen Parteiendemokratien auf, die durch politikwissenschaftlich begleitete Debatten Nuancierungen erfuhren. Dabei entwickelten sich die nationalen Parteiendemokratien in der EU nicht isoliert voneinander – ihre Eignung zur Lösung des Legitimationsproblems muss stets aus europäischer Perspektive analysiert werden. Indem die vorliegende Studie die Parteiendemokratien aller derzeit 28 EU-Mitglieder untersucht, sollen ihre institutionellen Voraussetzungen und Funktionsbedingungen zur Vermittlung von Legitimation identifiziert werden.

      The Enemy in Contemporary Film

      by Martin Löschnigg, Marzena Sokołowska-Paryż

      Culture and conflict unavoidably go together. The very idea of culture is marked by the notion of difference and creative, i.e. conflictual, interaction that inevitably support the key themes of the study of culture such as identity and diversity, memory and trauma, the translation of cultures and globalization, dislocation and emplacement, mediation and exclusion. This series publishes theoretically informed original scholarshipfrom the fields of literary and cultural studies as well as media, visual and film studies, fostering a plural disciplinary dialogue on the multiple ways in which conflict supports and constrains the production of meaning in modernity, how the representation of conflict works, how it relates to the past and projects the present and how it frames scholarship within the humanities.

      by Edited by S Yasuda, Deputy Associate Professor. Teikyo University, Japan, R Raj, Leeds Beckett University, UK, K Griffin, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland

      The Asia-Pacific region is considered the world's religious core, with the greatest number of pilgrims and travellers to religious events for both international and domestic tourism. It is estimated that there are approximately 600 million national and international religious and spiritual voyages in the world, of which over half take place in Asia. This book focuses on tourism and sacred sites in Asia. Contemporary case studies of religious and pilgrimage activities provide key learning points and present practical examples from this 'hub' of pilgrimage destinations. They explore ancient, sacred and emerging tourist destinations and new forms of pilgrimage, faith systems and quasi-religious activities. It will be of interest to researchers within religious, cultural, heritage and Asian tourism.Key features include:- An Asian perspective on a growing area of tourism.- Case studies from across the continent.- Full-colour images of pilgrimage sites and key destinations bring the topic to life.
