Abstract

In reaction to the spread of globalization, recent years have seen considerable growth in the number of intentional communities established across the world. In this collection of articles and lectures, many of them previously unpublished in English, the author analyzes various aspects of the philosophy of the kibbutz and draws parallels with other societies and philosophical trends, in the hope that a close look at the ways of thought of the kibbutz – arguably the best-established communalist society – may help other communalists crystallize their own social philosophies. Utopian thought and communal experience are brought to life through the extensive use of the voices of some of the most influential thinkers and kibbutz members of the past hundred years, including Martin Buber and David Ben Gurion.

Abstract

The notion of "human rights" is widely used in political and moral debates. The core idea, that all human beings have some inalienable basic rights, is appealing and has an important practical function: It allows moral criticism of various wrongs and calls for action in order to prevent them. The articles in this collection take up a tension between the wide political use of human rights claims and some intellectual skepticism about them. In particular, three major issues call for clarification: the questions of how to justify human rights, how to determine their scope and the corresponding obligations, and how to overcome the tension between universal normative claims and particular moralities.

Abstract

The aim of this book is to reflect on the complex practice of responsibility within the context of a globalised world and contemporary means of action. Levinas' exploration of the ethical serves as point of entry and is shown to be seeking inter-cultural political relevance through engagement with the issues of postcoloniality and humanism. Yet, Levinas fails to realise the ethical implications of the inevitable instrumental mediation between ethical meaning and political practice. With recourse to Weber, Apel and Ricoeur, Ernst Wolff proposes a theory of strategic co-responsibility for the uncertain global context of practice.

Abstract

Este libro es fruto de una línea de investigación sobre la historia del derecho indiano. Su objeto es la Colección Documental de don Benito de la Mata Linares, oidor, regente y consejero de Indias, que se encuentra en la Biblioteca de la Real Academia de la Historia. El propósito del autor es observar la Colección bajo la lupa científica del derecho indiano y no acceder a ella meramente como una cantera documental de carácter histórico –que lo es y, por cierto, riquísima–, que ya había consultado con provecho en anteriores visitas. La primera parte del libro está dedicada a trazar un esbozo biográfico de Mata Linares, que amplía sensiblemente los datos ofrecidos hasta ahora por los historiadores que han dado a conocer piezas documentales de la Colección o por los diccionarios u obras relativas a los órganos de gobierno y justicia en donde se desempeñó. En la segunda parte se hace un examen de la Colección, que permite comprobar que ella, considerada habitualmente como una fuente documental ofrecida para los Investigadores de Historia de América y derivada del empeño de un erudito coleccionista, se formó, en cambio, por la acción de un jurista que reunió esos papeles para uso propio durante su labor profesional al servicio de la Corona. De ahí proviene la denominación de “taller del jurista”, título de este libro que destaca el sentido que tuvo la formación de este conjunto documental y también el valor de estos papeles como fuente de estudio para la historia del derecho. Desde este último punto de vista, se rescata para los estudiosos de la historia jurídica el uso de un conjunto documental singular, ya que no es frecuente para los historiadores el acceso directo e integral a los papeles que hicieron parte del gabinete de un jurista. Con la experiencia adquirida en la indagación realizada, el autor se permite afirmar el enorme valor que tienen los archivos profesionales de este género, al aproximarnos a verificar el papel del jurista en la configuración del Derecho –creación, interpretación, adaptación, transmisión, aplicación, etc.– y a conocer el delicado perfil de “la modulación jurídica” que lo caracteriza.

Abstract

This "Key" to the Khamsa consists of thirteen essays by eminent scholars in the field of Persian Studies, each focusing on different aspects of the Khamsa, which is a collection of five long poems written by the Persian poet Nizami of Ganja. Nizami (1141-1209) lived and worked in Ganja in present-day Azerbaijan. He is widely recognized as one of the main poets of Medieval Persia, a towering figure who produced outstanding poetry, straddling mysticism, romances and epics. He has left his mark on the whole Persian-speaking world and countless younger poets in the area stretching from the Ottoman to the Mughal worlds (present-day Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, India) have found him an inspiration and have tried to emulate him. His work has influenced such other immense poets as Hafez, Rumi, and Saadi. His five masnavis (long poems) address a variety of topics and disciplines and have all enjoyed enormous fame, as the countless surviving manuscripts of his work indicate. His heroes, Khosrow and Shirin, Leili and Majnun, Iskandar count amongst the stars of the Persian literary firmament and have become household names all over the Islamic world. The essays in the present volume constitute a significant development in the field of Nizami-studies, and on a more general level, of classical Persian literature. They focus on topics such as mysticism, art history, comparative literature, science, and philosophy. they show how classical Greek knowledge mingles in a unique manner with the Persian past and the Islamic culture in Nizami's world. They reflect a high degree of engagement with the existing scholarship in the field, they revive and challenge traditional views on the poet and his work and are indispensable both for specialists in the field and for anyone interested in the movement of ideas in the Medieval world.

Abstract

This book includes the first translation of the treatise Ars de iure (1304) by Ramon Llull into a modern language. This translation into Spanish by Pedro Ramis Serra and Rafael Ramis Barceló, accompanied with notes trying to clarify the legal, conceptual and philosophical scope of the lullian conception of Law. The preliminary study by Rafael Ramis Barceló is an introduction to the life, work and thought of Llull, who pays attention to the political and legal context of Llull and the main concepts of the work: general principles of law, theory of justice and natural law. This is one of the most important treatises of legal epistemology throughout the Middle Ages and an alternative vision to the ratio scripta model of ius commune in Montpellier and the Mediterranean Kingdoms. = Este libro incluye la primera traducción del tratado Ars de iure (1304) de Ramon Llull a un idioma moderno.
