The Passions of Christ in High-Medieval Thought
34,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since the earliest days of the Church, theologians have struggled to understand how humanity and divinity coexisted in the person of Christ. Proponents of the Arian heresy, which held that Jesus could not have been fully divine, found significant scriptural evidence of their position: Jesus wondered, questioned, feared, suffered, and prayed. The defenders of orthodoxy, such as Hilary of Poitiers, Ambrose of Milan, Jerome, and Augustine, showed considerable ingenuity in explaining how these biblical passages could be reconciled with Christ's divinity. Medieval theologians such as Peter Lombard, Thomas Aquinas, and Bonaventure, also grappled with these texts when confronting the rising threat of Arian heresy. Like their predecessors, they too faced the need to preserve Jesus' authentic humanity and to describe a mode of experiencing the passions that cast no doubt upon the perfect divinity of the Incarnate Word. As Kevin Madigan demonstrates, however, they also confronted an additional obstacle. The medieval theologians had inherited from the Greek and Latin fathers a body of opinion on the passages in question, which by this time had achieved normative cultural status in the Christian tradition. However, the Greek and Latin fathers wrote in a polemical situation, responding to the threat to orthodoxy posed by the Arians. As a consequence, they sometimes found themselves driven to extreme and sometimes contradictory statements. These statements seemed to their medieval successors either to compromise the true divinity of Christ, his true humanity, or the possibility that the divine and human were in communication with or metaphysically linked to one another. As a result, medieval theologians also needed to demonstrate how two equally authoritative but apparently contradictory statements could be reconciled-to protect their patristic forebears from any doubt about their unanimity or the soundness of their orthodoxy. Examining the arguments that resulted from these dual pressures, Madigan finds that, under the guise of unchanging assimilation and transmission of a unanimous tradition, there were in fact many fissures and discontinuities between the two bodies of thought, ancient and medieval. Rather than organic change or development, he finds radical change, trial, novelty, and even heterodoxy.

Diaspora: A Very Short Introduction
7,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What does diaspora mean? Until quite recently, the word had a specific and restricted meaning, referring principally to the dispersal and exile of the Jews. But since the 1960s, the term diaspora has proliferated to a remarkable extent, to the point where it is now applied to migrants of almost every kind. This Very Short Introduction explains where the concept of diaspora came from, how its meaning changed over time, why its usage has expanded so dramatically in recent years, and how it can both clarify and distort the nature of migration. Kevin Kenny highlights the strength of diaspora as a mode of explanation, focusing on three key elements--movement, connectivity, and return--and illustrating his argument with examples drawn from Jewish, Armenian, African, Irish, and Asian diasporas. He shows that diaspora is not simply a synonym for the movement of people. Its explanatory power is greatest when people believe that their departure was forced rather than voluntary. Thus diaspora would not really explain most of the Irish migration to America, but it does shed light on the migration compelled by the Great Famine. Kenny also describes how migrants and their descendants develop diasporic cultures abroad--regardless of the form their migration takes--based on their connections with a homeland, real or imagined, and with people of common origin in other parts of the world. Finally, most conceptions of diaspora feature the dream of a return to a homeland, even when this yearning does not involve an actual physical relocation. About the Series: Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, Literary Theory to History, and Archaeology to the Bible. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume in this series provides trenchant and provocative--yet always balanced and complete--discussions of the central issues in a given discipline or field. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how the subject has developed and how it has influenced society. Eventually, the series will encompass every major academic discipline, offering all students an accessible and abundant reference library. Whatever the area of study that one deems important or appealing, whatever the topic that fascinates the general reader, the Very Short Introductions series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

Rousseau and Radical Democracy
43,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Rousseau and Radical Democracy presents the first comprehensive examination of Rousseau's founding role in, and continuing relevance for, recent and influential theories of democracy. Kevin Inston demonstrates the actuality of Rousseau's thinking through an analysis of his deep connection with the groundbreaking work of contemporary European thinkers, including Lefort, Laclau and Mouffe. The book affirms Rousseau's centrality for current debates in democratic thought by showing how, contrary to common assumptions, his writings emphasise the openness and difference necessary for a dynamic mode of democracy committed to extending the principles of freedom and equality. By connecting Rousseau's philosophy with present-day thinking, Inston stresses the theoretical consistency of his political thought against those influential deconstructive readings of his work by thinkers such as Derrida and De Man. This book argues that the ambiguities and tensions in Rousseau actually form part of the logic of Rousseau's rigorous reflection on democracy that accepts the inherent incompleteness and uncertainty of any political project as the condition of freedom and change.

Möbeldesign im 20. Jahrhundert / Charles und Ra...

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Design (Industrie, Grafik, Mode), Note: 1,0, Fachhochschule Aachen, Veranstaltung: Kunstwissenschaft im medialen Kontext, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'Ohne Zweifel war er (Anm. des Verf.: Charles Eames) unter allen Designern des Zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts der kreativste und fantasievollste; er war Erfinder, Bastler, Designer, Architekt, Filmemacher, und dazu war er Künstler, Forscher, Visionär, Schöpfer-einer,der genau die unwahrscheinlichen Gedankenverbindungen herstellen konnte, die nur ein wahres Genie findet.' Diese Einschätzung des amerikanischen Architekten Kevin Roche spiegelt sehr gut den allgemeinen Tenor wider, der dem Werk von Charles Eames entgegen gebracht wird. Gleichermaßen lässt sich das Zitat aber auch auf seine Frau Ray übertragen, die entschieden zu dem Erfolg der Eames beitrug. Daher soll es im Rahmen dieser Arbeit nicht nur um Charles, sondern auch um Ray Eames gehen, die leider viel zu oft hinter seinem Namen verschwindet. Charles und Ray Eames zählen zu den bedeutendsten Designern des Zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Gemeinsam hatten sie den Mut, die Welt herauszufordern und mit ihrem Stil zu verändern. Im Laufe ihrer Zusammenarbeit realisierten sie eine bemerkenswerte Fülle unterschiedlichster Projekte, die ihre Wirkung bis heute zeigen. Mit ihren Möbeln, Häusern, Ausstellungen, Filmen, Büchern, Grafiken und nicht zuletzt mit ihren Ideen gelang es dem Architekten- und Designerpaar, die Modernisierung Amerikas nachdem Zweiten Weltkrieg entscheidend mit zu gestalten. Sie waren in ihrer Arbeit sowie in ihrem Leben Vorläufer der bedeutenden gesellschaftlichen Bewegungen des Zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts: der Trendwende von der Ost- zur Westküste, des Aufschwungs der Großindustrie sowie der weltweiten Bekanntmachung amerikanischer Kultur. Ihre Arbeit war beeinflusst von nationaler Aufbruchstimmung und von Euphorie über den Fortschritt. Das von Charles proklamierte Design-Credo'vom Besten so vielen (Menschen) wie möglich soviel wie möglich für so wenig wie möglich'zu bringen, fand sein Echo in einem optimistischen Glauben an die moderne Industrie und Massenproduktion. Charles und Ray glaubten daran, dass Industrie und Designer dieses Ziel gemeinsam erreichen könnten und waren somit die idealen Partner der modernen Industrien Amerikas. Jung und erfolgreich wie sie waren, repräsentierten sie einen Fortschrittsoptimismus,der gut in die landesweit aufstrebende kapitalistische Wirtschaft passte. Gleichwohl war Design für sie stets eine moralische Angelegenheit, die Menschen glücklich machen und zu einer besseren Gesellschaft verhelfen sollte.
