Abstract

In this collection of interdisciplinary papers, for the first time well-known scholars of Ancient Near Eastern Studies discuss Babylon from the point of view of the ""culture of knowledge"". The volume is the result of a conference that took place on the occasion of the exhibition Babylon ? Truth and Myth in Berlin. For the contemporary cultures of the Ancient World, Babylon was the epitome of learned scholarship. Yet in the processes of transformation of Late and post-Antiquity, to the same extent to which this culture of knowledge was forgotten after the collapse of the old oriental empires, Babylon became symbolic for the occult, for magic and esoteric knowledge. As the first joint pilot project by Topoi and the publisher De Gruyter for the simultaneous publication in print and open access, this volume will, on publication, also be available via www.reference-global.de as an eBook ""open access"".; Eva Cancik-Kirschbaum, Freie Universit

Abstract

Ludwig Wittgensteins «Bemerkungen über die Farben» gelten als äußerst schwieriger Text. Das vorliegende Buch führt Schritt für Schritt an die Themen und Problemstellungen der Farbbemerkungen Wittgensteins heran und liefert umfangreiche Erläuterungen zu den wichtigsten Textpassagen. Dies ist bemerkenswert, weil das bruchstückhafte Textmaterial aus den beiden letzten Lebensjahren Wittgensteins eine klare Struktur vermissen lässt, die darin aufgeworfenen Fragen häufig befremdlich anmuten und größtenteils ohne Antwort bleiben. So ist es wenig verwunderlich, dass bis jetzt keine umfassende philosophische Studie zu den «Bemerkungen über die Farben» zur Verfügung steht. Das Buch von Frederik A. Gierlinger füllt erstmalig diese Lücke in der Rezeptionsgeschichte.

Abstract

Ivan Bunin's high opinion of his narrative "Temnye allei" (Paris, 1946) was rarely shared. In the field of view of the readers was too often the erotic topic - the criticism affected an unbiased reception of the book, whose coherence was only occasionally perceived. Abridged editions reinforced this effect in the episode. The study considers the "Temnye allei" for the first time in the interaction of external conditions and artistic intention, taking into account all simultaneously created, partly unpublished tales. The focus is on determining the genre of the book on the basis of extra and intratextlichen links such as structure, style and the central themes of love, death and memory. While a glance at the eventful history of its origins allows conclusions to be drawn about the book's intended construction, the critical examination of the history of editions and receptions illuminates the most diverse problems of acceptance in the perception of the book as a short prose link - and as Bunin's masterpiece.

Abstract

The volume presents a collection of papers which clearly document a theological paradigm shift during the decades after World War II. Protestant, Catholic and Jewish experts from various specialist fields of theology, such as biblical scholarship (Old Testament and New Testament), liturgics, feminist and systematic theology, as well as Jewish studies provide a diverse picture of the theological change from anti-Jewish polemics to a respectful dialogue with Judaism. Moreover, the publication offers an insight into the biographical developments of the scholars involved, and through this a piece of reflective history of theology.
