VOLUME IV: DERIVATI DA NOMI GEOGRAFICI (R-Z) [Deonomasticon Italicum (DI). A historical dictionary of geographical names and the names of persons. Volume II: Derivations from geographical names (M-Q).]   

The Deonomasticon Italicum provides a systematic historical treatment of, and commentary on, the lexemes of Italian derived from proper names. It covers both derivations from geographical names (including those from ethnic roots, which are of especial interest both for the history of vocabulary and for cultural history) and from the names of persons. The first part of the Dictionary (4 volumes) is devoted to derivations from geographical names, the second (2 volumes) to the names of persons. The Deonomasticon Italicum will be published in complete volumes and no longer in the form of single fascicles.

BAND 4: FAMILIENNAMEN NACH HERKUNFT UND WOHNSTÄTTE [Atlas of German Familiy Names]   

With over 1,800 annotated maps, the Atlas of German Family Names draws together for the first time all of the family names that exist in the Federal Republic of Germany according to their statistical frequency and geographical distribution. The inclusion of a section on grammar addresses the needs of linguists, while a section on lexicology will be of particular use to cultural historians. Volume 4 provides the first systematic and comprehensive documentation of the spatial interconnections between toponymy and anthroponomy, using Germany as a paradigmatic subject of analysis.

CREATIVITY AND THE AGILE MIND A Multi-Disciplinary Study of a Multi-Faceted Phenomenon   

Creativity is a highly-prized quality in almost any domain of human endeavor, whether one is crafting tangible objects from physical materials, or mental objects from concepts, words, pictures and musical notes. It is a diverse, multi-faceted phenomenon that demands a diverse, multi-disciplinary perspective. By bringing together a wide range of creative producers and consumers, in domains as diverse as cognition, language, music, gesture, image and computation, this volume offers the student of creativity a new and exciting perspective whose many facets form a comprehensive and coherent whole.

CURRENT MULTILINGUALISM A New Linguistic Dispensation   

   Paolo Pellegrini (Ed.)

PLANCTUS MAGISTRAE DOLORIS Volgarizzamento in antico veronese

This volume approaches current multilingualism as a new linguistic dispensation, in urgent need of research-led, reflective scrutiny. The book addresses the emergent global and local patterns of multingual use and acquisition across the world and explores the major trends that characterize today‘s multilingualism. Its fifteen chapters discuss a range of issues relating to the quintessential and unique properties of multilingual situations. David Singleton, Trinity College, Ireland; Joshua Fishman, Yeshiva University, USA; Larissa Aronin, Oranim Academic College of Education, Israel; Muiris Ó Laoire, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.

  

  

This is a new critical and commented edition of the Planctus Magistrae Doloris, a vernacular old Veronese prose version of a Planctus Mariae that was copied in the second half of the 14th century. While a first transcription was published in 1891 by Gustav Oehlert, the current editor has succeeded in identifying  the Latin version the vernacular text was drawn from, allowing him to clarify some difficult passages.

The Added Value of Being Wrong   

Grammatical structures connect systems of thought and articulation, the conditions of which hardly seem to fit each other. Repairs are productive mechanisms that solve translation problems between modules or levels by adapting derivations or representations to requirements that have to be met unconditionally. Compensating for derivational and interpretive defects, repairs determine core properties of natural language grammars and their interfaces.

Africa is one of the hotspots of linguistic diversity, and most African languages are spoken by multilingual communities. The persistence of multilingualism and the linguistic creativity are striking, especially against the backdrop of „language death“ and expanding monolingualism elsewhere in the world. This volume deals with multilingualism as a cultural technique, register variation and the multiplicity of language ideologies, and the dynamics of linguistic change in Africa‘s minority languages. It argues that that in terms of multilingualism and language survival, Africa can serve as a positive model.

Eine phonetisch-phonologische Analyse zum regionalen Erstspracherwerb im Moselfränkischen   

Children’s language acquisition has not been previously studied in relation to regional language variation. For the first time, this study examines the connections between language acquisition and language variation. The book’s analysis of the Moselle-Franconian dialect based on data collected from children between three and ten years of age reveals both monolingual and bilingual patterns of acquisition. These findings enable the reader to understand changes in language during early phases of acquisition caused by regional language variation.

[Ellipsis. New perspectives on an old phenomenon] Neue Perspektiven auf ein altes Phänomen   

In modern linguistics, ellipsis has been a subject of interest in various subdisciplines, including grammar research, psycholinguistics, and language philosophy. This compendium relates these “old” perspectives to each other while also opening up new perspectives – for example, in interactional linguistics and computer linguistics. As a result, this volume not only provides insights into the current status of research about ellipsis, but also highlights novel directions for future investigation.

The book starts with everyday observations about word meaning and use primarily and then gradually zooms in on the question of how speakers manage to meaningfully communicate with phrases, sentences, and texts they have never come across before. Extensive English examples provide ample illustration. Thomas Ede Zimmermann, Goethe University Frankfurt; Wolfgang Sternefeld, University of Tübingen.

The contributions to this volume address the model of diachronic language comparison that has emerged from the field of contrastive linguistics. The volume‘s aim is to use language comparison to derive principles of language change that allow for generalizations that go beyond single languages. Indeed, the phenomenon of change observed in a particular language is thrown into sharper relief when compared to comparable developments in other languages. Such a comparison also facilitates the identification of change that is highly specific to a single language. The articles in the volume illustrate the relevance of these concepts for phonological, morphological, and syntactic changes.

WEGE DES SPRACHKONTAKTS [Pathways of Linguistic Contact] Reflexe des frühneuzeitlichen Italienhandels im Deutschen und im Französischen   

This study explores the pathways of commerce by which Italian loanwords made their way into the German and French languages during Middle Ages and Early Modern Era (15th-18th centuries). It links culturo-historical and linguistic criteria by analyzing the various textual genres that arose in the occupational setting of international trade. In addition to examining etymologies, the book traces the linguistic contacts between Italian and German as well as Italian and French that took place in the context of commercial trade. The pathways of borrowing are georeferenced on 130 maps based upon nearly 4,000 references drawn from over 150 different sources.

WEGE MODERNER RHETORIKFORSCHUNG [Pathways in Modern Rhetorical Research] Klassische Fundamente und interdisziplinäre Entwicklung

  

  

Cardinal Bessarion (ca. 1403-1472) is renowned for bridging the frontier that existed between the Western world of Latin and the Eastern world of Greek. As an integrative intermediary and humanistic patron of culture, he not only served as a witness to the epoch‘s diverse and momentous processes of inclusion and exclusion, but, in addition, he was among their key instigators and sponsors. The articles in this compendium attempt to reconstruct the mechanisms of cultural integration and disintegration that marked the Early Modern Era.

The articles in this compendium take an interdisciplinary and international look at the broad academic concept and educational tradition of rhetoric, both as it was developed and transmitted historically and as it has been transformed in contemporary discourse in collaboration with other disciplines of the humanities and social sciences.

Eine Anleitung für den Bereich Linguistik

The notions of Islam that are prevalent in the public imagination  are founded and shaped by public discourse itself. This study examines the process by which perceptions of Islam are constructed using the methods of lexical semantics, discourse analysis, and corpus linguistics. This specific combination of methods illustrates the unique textual and discursive potentials of contemporary linguistics.

EINFÜHRUNG IN DIE ROMANISCHE SPRACHWISSENSCHAFT [Introduction to Romance Linguistics]   

Extensive teaching experience has led the authorial team of this work to conclude that the most efficient way to familiarize students with the fundamentals of Romance linguistics in a single semester is to simultaneously facilitate the development of their knowledge in three important areas. By teaching in parallel about 1) working techniques and tools, 2) the sub-disciplines of linguistics, and 3) romance languages, this introductory text organically links theoretical reflection with practical skills. The textbook is divided into 13 identically structured units (including working techniques, branches of linguistics, and language outlines) that provide a condensed introduction to the field. Teachers will find the extensive exercise portion of particular value.

HANDBUCH DER DEUTSCHEN GRAMMATIK [Handbook of German Grammar] 4., vollständig überarbeitete Auflage   

The Handbook of German Grammar is a scholarly, modern, easy-to-read grammar, which is ideal for teaching and learning, as a reference when in doubt, and as guide for understanding the approaches of modern grammar theory. It uses the traditional terminology, while explaining diverging terms of current models. In the 4th edition, experience from using the book in class is taken into account, as well as the current state of research. As before, a comprehensive index helps the reader to quickly find what s/he is looking for.

Introductory volume to linguistic interaction analysis in a revised edition 22 chapters on different authors and their contribution to the theory of linguistic action 22 key concepts are being explained

Biographisch-bibliographisches Handbuch

Founded by Wilhelm Kosch   

  

Proceeding from 22 authors assigned 22 different concepts, the book provides an overview of the essential present-day knowledge on linguistic interaction analysis. The authors selected include not only linguists (Bühler, Benveniste, etc.) but also major sociologists (Weber, Sacks, etc.), cultural theoreticians (e.g. Volosinov), and language philosophers (Wittgenstein, Austin, etc.). These are supplemented by more recent authors of rank (e.g. Bourdieu, Luckmann, Hymes, Geertz). Despite the interdisciplinary approach, the general orientation remains squarely linguistic. The spectrum of key concepts includes such terms as action, speech act, culture, intertextuality, subjectivity, performance, genre, etc.

[Postwar Culture] Literatur, Sachbuch und Film in Deutschland (1945-1961)   

  

This book discusses research on the culture of postwar Germany (1945–1961). Topics such as war, destruction, homecoming, flight, expulsion, guilt, daily life, religion, etc., are explored systematically, using examples and by focusing on fiction, nonfiction, and film in the two German states. Historians and scholars in the field of literature and film address various core questions concerning aesthetic representation and the formation of contemporary history.

This book is a supplement to the eighteen-volume edition of the Complete Works of Philip von Zesen (1619-1689). For the first time, it presents the diverse oeuvre of the Baroque „poeta doctus“ in monograph form, and explores its historical and literary contexts. The works considered include von Zesen‘s lyric poetry, poetics, novels, historical works, astronomy, philological research on myths, translations, devotional works, and writings on toleration.

Transformationen in der europäischen Literatur des 18. Jahrhunderts

Eine Anthropologie der Narration

  

Storytelling is an essential element of human nature. This study identifies five universal „streams of narrative“ - that is, five „hyper-genres“ that serve as a system for classifying virtually all kinds of narration. In conjunction with concepts drawn from biology, psychology, and sociology, the study develops a solid anthropological foundation for these five streams of narrative. The author uses examples from diverse cultures, eras, and media to demonstrate the occurrence of overlapping and blending between the streams.

Apollonius of Tyre was one of the most popular stories of the German Middle Ages. In a critical Latin and German parallel edition, this volume presents the previously unedited version of „Apollonius“ produced by the early humanist Heinrich Steinhöwel, along with information about the transmission and genesis of the text. The research section situates the author and the work in its sociohistorical context and goes beyond its literaryhistorical aspects to focus on cultural and economic interconnections.

How is emotion related to knowledge and understanding? How do emotions influence our engagement with knowledge and our orientation to the world? The articles assembled in this volume examine the 18th century as a time of discovery, when original answers to these questions were developed that continue to be innovative to this day. The articles consider various topics, including the impact of emotions on perception, the importance of narrativity in engaging with one‘s own emotionality and that of others, and how emotions relate to self-mastery and self-therapy while also facilitating the potential for external control and manipulation.

ELIZABETHAN TRANSLATION AND LITERARY CULTURE

DAS ‚PRINZIP STÖRUNG‘ IN DEN GEISTESUND SOZIALWISSENSCHAFTEN

  

During the latter half of the 16th century, translations into English were not only produced on an unprecedented scale, they also became a key site for critical debate about authorship, style, and specifically English literary forms. The essays in this volume set out to examine Elizabethan translation as a literary practice and as a crucial influence on English literature. In analysing the complex interplay of voices and authorities in these texts, they explore the ways in which translations helped to shape English literary identity through cultural exchange.

METROPOLE, PROVINZ UND WELT [The Metropolis, the Province, and the World: Space and Mobility in the Literature of German Realism] Raum und Mobilität in der Literatur des Realismus   

In German-language literature of the realist period, the metropolis, the province, and the world stand in a state of tension to one another. This volume uses comparative case studies to undertake a historical and systematic exploration of the ways that the works of Fontane, Raabe, Auerbach, and Spielhagen (among others) engaged with the radical existential changes taking place in the wake of accelerated modernization, enhanced mobility, and colonialist globalization.

MÄNNLICHKEIT IN ROBERT MUSILS „MANN OHNE EIGENSCHAFTEN“

ÄGYPTOMANIE UND ORIENTALISMUS

[Masculinity in Robert Musil’s ‚The Man without Qualities‘]   

This study examines the ways that Robert Musil‘s representations of gender roles and conflicts are symptomatic of the crisis confronting all existing models of masculinity as ‘The Man without Qualities’ was written. The study focuses on demonstrating the contradictions and interplay between very different texts and discourses. Inclusion of perspectives from medicine, economics, anthropology, and the history of world-views open diverse avenues for accessing the painfully sensitive issues regarding gender taken up in the novel.

The study undertakes a first broad-based analysis of Goethe‘s historical thinking as evident from his autobiographical writings, demonstrating the links between biography, politics, and new ideas about history developing around 1800.

Examining the image of Egypt as it was portrayed in German travelogues, this study aims to illuminate the history of Germany‘s reception of Egypt. It also seeks to make a contribution to research on travel literature and foreignness. Through interpretations of selected sources, it reveals the shift that occurred in perceptions of Egypt, which were mutually shaped by Egyptomania to Orientalism. Ultimately, it proposes an Orientalism of the early modern era as a discourse of powerlessness alongside Edward Said‘s hegemonic Orientalism.

TOTALITÄT ALS FASZINATION

HÖFISCHE TRAGIK

HEINRICH VON KLEIST: STYLE AND CONCEPT

[The Fascination of Totality. Attempts to Systematize the Heterogeneous in the Work of Ernst Jünger] Systematisierung des Heterogenen im Werk Ernst Jüngers   

Throughout his life Ernst Jünger tried to identify a significance behind “all that happens”, even if this should be revealed as “dreadful” or imbued with “some alien meaning”. The conference proceedings investigate this search for a historically and ideologically acceptable meaning of both general and personal experience. The volume aims to consider both Jünger’s political esthetics and his perception of language in the light of the philosophical tradition and the literary conflict between the Romantic and the Modern, following his development from the war diaries through the political journalism of the period between the world wars to the narrative works of the contemporary period. The proposition set out here is that Jünger’s work represents cultural practices of life and survival, constantly shifting between combat and art – and indeed in such a way that both ideological and esthetic aspects are granted equal consideration.

[Courtly Tragedy: Motivational Forms of Misfortune in Medieval Narratives] Motivierungsformen des Unglücks in mittelalterlichen Erzählungen   

This study refutes the notion that there could be no sense of tragedy in the Middle Ages because of the prevailing Christian worldview. The motivating force of misfortunate in the courtly epic shows clear congruities with various theories of tragedy. Using a narratological approach, the author reformulates the concept of the tragic for the field of medieval studies. Regina Toepfer, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.   

Explorations of Literary Dissonance   

The impact of Heinrich von Kleist unfolds between precise depictions and moral extremes. Crystallized in words, his characters appear as paradigms of human fallibility. Their passions and obsessions, their inadequacies and longings are captured in a writing style that reveals its influence even in novels and plays of the twentieth century. This volume takes the literary reception of Kleist as one of its focal points and, furthermore, considers the author‘s oeuvre and his life on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of his death.

[Literature and Exile: New Perspectives] Neue Perspektiven   

This volume opens German-language research on exile to comparative and interdisciplinary studies on exile, and explores an expansion of historical and methodological perspectives that goes beyond the 1933 to 1945 time period and the long-predominant emphasis on anti-fascism. Impulses from other conceptual systems, such as post-colonialism, research in acculturation and transnationalism, translation theory, and cultural scientific research on trauma are successfully invoked to analyze the relationship between literature and exile. The book introduces these newer approaches into the discourse to generate a new impetus for further discussion.

In comparison to the previous 14th edition, the 15th edition of this compendium of medieval poetry by Walther von der Vogelweide shows a number of innovations. The sources have been newly examined, and critical textual decisions revisited. In cases of major variation a number of songs have been made available in multiple versions for the first time, thus opening the door to new interpretations. Interpretive aids, which are included for each ‚Ton‘, are a major innovation and should facilitate access to Walther’s texts for students. Ease of access is also supported by additional sections on Walther’s life and work and on the editorial history of this collection.

On the southern fringes of the Taurus mountains, in the modern town of Uzuncaburc, lie the ruins of the Hellenistic temple of Zeus-Olbios and of the ancient city of Diocaesarea. The impressive architectural remains reflect the turbulent history of the ancient site. In the Hellenistic period the extra-urban sanctuary was the centre of power of an extensive temple state, while in the early Roman Empire a city was established around the temple that blossomed until the 7th century AD. In 2001-2006 a record of all surface finds and a detailed documentation of buildings were made by an international team of archaeologists, architectural experts and historians. The series of monographs presents individual groups of material and building complexes, so offering an important contribution on the history of settlement in ancient Asia Minor and the development of ancient architecture. The series will probably consist of five volumes: Volume I: Norbert Kramer, The Ceramic Survey (2012) Volume II: Marcello Spanu, The Theatre (2011) Volume III: Johannes Linnemann, The Necropoleis (2013) The next volume planned is Volume IV: Detlev Wannagat, The Sanctuary of Zeus-Olbios

3: DIE NEKROPOLEN VON DIOKAISAREIA [The Necropoleis of Diokaesareia] Untersuchungen zu den Gräbern und ihrem siedlungsgeschichtlichen Bezug   

Five necropoleis have been identified in the area around Diokaisareia in Rough Cilicia (Turkey). Most of them lie along the roads leading into the polis. Some 750 burials and graves that have been recorded are arranged here by type: sarcophagi, rock graves and funerary monuments. The professions named in the inscriptions go some way to allowing a preliminary reconstruction of life in the city. Only a few graves date to the years before the foundation of the city in the 1st century AD, most of them are from the Roman imperial and early Byzantine periods.

Over the centuries, this crisis has often inspired explanatory attempts and comparisons with more recent times. The essays presented in this volume, written by Alexander Demandt between 1977 and 2011, serve to amplify his comprehensive treatment undertaken in Der Fall Roms.

The book is a first comprehensive study of the life and work of Euhemerus of Messene. Winiarczyk takes into consideration all scholarly works since the first half of the 19th century to the present day. Euhemerus’ utopian novel Sacred history describes the travel to the island Panchaia in the Indian Ocean. According to Euhemerus, in the temple of Zeus Triphylius there was a stele which presented the Olympian gods as deified kings. Winiarczyk’s book studies the sources of the theological views and of the description of the Panchaian society. The book will be for many decades the most authoritative monograph on Euhemerus.

[The Suasoriae of Seneca the Elder: Introduction, Text, and Commentary] Einleitung, Text und Kommentar   

This new edition of The Suasoriae of Seneca the Elder contains, in addition to the original text, its first-ever commentary, providing helpful assistance with the hard-to-read declamations. The introduction addresses problems in Seneca the Elder scholarship (the poor state of The Suasoriae’s written record, for instance) and with ancient declamation. All those interested in scholastic rhetoric and the culture of the early empire will find in this book an enlightening study of a neglected area of research.

[The Emperor at War] Die Bilder der Säule des Marc Aurel   

With its richly figurative friezes, the column of Marcus Aurelius is a key monument of Roman art concerned with representing power. Yet it has always been regarded and interpreted as being overshadowed by Trajan’s column. The present study abandons this point of view. Starting from a systematic analysis of the visual material, it investigates the forms of imperial representation in the reliefs. The findings of the study not only lead to a new aesthetic and historical valuation of the column of Marcus Aurelius but also suggest ways to reconsider other comparable images of Roman art concerned with representing power.

[The Basilica in Byzantium: Structure, Appointments, Function, and Relationship to the Cross-in-Square Church] Gestalt, Ausstattung und Funktion sowie das Verhältnis zur Kreuzkuppelkirche   

In Byzantium, the central structure is considered archetypical. This study shows that this assumption is only partly true. It presents the basilicas of the 7th to 15th centuries, addressing questions of typology, appointments, function, and the relationship to longitudinal and central constructions. It shows that the Byzantines were more flexible in their approach to these construction types than previously assumed, a conclusion supported by theological evidence.

REDEFINING DIONYSOS   

This book contributes to the understanding of Dionysos, the Greek god of wine, dancing, theatre and ecstasy, by putting together 30 studies of classical scholars. They combine the analysis of specific instances of particular dimensions of the god in cult, myth, literature and iconography, with general visions of Dionysos in antiquity and modern times. Only from the combination of different perspectives can we grasp the complex personality of Dionysos, and the forms of his presence in different cults, literary genres, and artistic forms, from Mycenaean times to late antiquity.

IN SEARCH OF PYTHAGOREANISM

„HADRIANI GENITURA“ - DIE ASTROLOGISCHEN FRAGMENTE DES ANTIGONOS VON NIKAIA

INTENDE, LECTOR ECHOES OF MYTH, RELIGION AND RITUAL IN THE ANCIENT NOVEL   

Despite the recent scholarly interest in the field of myth and ritual, inquiry into major shifts in mythical and ritual poetics is still in a preliminary stage. The essays in this collection advance our understanding considerably as they probe the intersections of myth and ritual with the plot of the novels. The volume provides a substantial point of departure for subsequent research into freer models of interaction between literature and religion. Marília P. Futre Pinheiro, University of Lisbon, Portugal; Anton Bierl, University of Basel, Switzerland; Roger Beck, University of Toronto, Canada.

Pythagoreanism as an Historiographical Category   

The history of Pythagoreanism is littered with different and incompatible interpretations. This observation directs this book towards a fundamentally historiographical rather than philological approach, setting out to reconstruct the way in which the tradition established Pythagoreanism’s image.

This critical edition provides for the very first time a thorough presentation of Antigonus’s life, work, sources, and reception. The commentary is based on a systematic assessment of all relevant ancient handbooks and horoscopes.

THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF POLITICAL SPACES The Upper Mesopotamian Piedmont in the Second Millennium BCE   

This book, consisting of 12 contributions, unites the most recent results from archaeological research in the Upper Mesopotamian piedmont. Under the growing influence of expanding territorial states, which were established during the 2nd millennium BCE, this region experienced a substantial change in social and political life during that time. The discussion is centered on settlement shapes, developments in material culture, as well as written documents that attest to this change. In summary, this book emphasizes the significant role of archaeological research in the reconstruction of models concerning the formation and transformation of political spaces in the ancient world.

Soziokulturelle Interaktionen zur Machtkonsolidierung vom 8. bis zum 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr.   

During the 8th century BC, power gradually shifted from the central government to local rulers, who had nearly autonomous control over their areas of dominion. This study assembles for the first time all known sources regarding this period and analyzes them with respect to their description of the sociocultural interactions between the king and local population. The author demonstrates the kinds of knowledge about governance that was used to consolidate rulers’ personal power and the discernible space, power, and knowledge relationships of the potentates.

It is widely known that antiquity served as a model for European neoclassicism, especially for literature and art in the Age of Goethe. For the first time, however, using „classical“ Weimar as an example, the present volume demonstrates the enormous influence exerted by rapidly disseminating knowledge about archeology in the wake of Winckelmann‘s death on the formation and development of the image of the ancient world for German classicism and romanticism.

In Macrobius’s Saturnalia  and Martianus Capella’s De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii two fathers write letters to their son with advice for life. In his Letters Sidonius Apollinaris offers a clear vision of his ideas about education.

This is an original collection of exemplary emendations made by ancient and modern scholars. Single examples are analysed in order to extract a method of emendation. The author reviews some attractive interventions which offer a model of textual criticism: a kind of ideal museum of critical intelligence applied to corruptions or cryptocorruptions which have damaged some Greek and Latin literary texts. Advanced students and scholars are offered an orderly sequence of ‘cruces’ healed by great philologists so that a teaching route is granted.

Typically, theory and practice are regarded as polarities. Yet is this an appropriate perspective? In a survey of the philosophical and theological traditions of antiquity and late antiquity, this study traces key moments in the development of principles in the domain of practice, and comes to a surprising conclusion: theory and practice are not opposites, but instead, are fundamentally interrelated and based on a common principle.

Though in-depth studies into the history of Egyptology have existed for the past 200 years, they continue to remain popular today. By assessing extensive materials from German and European archives, Thomas Gertzen sheds light on the significance of the Berlin School of Egyptology and its founder, Adolf Erman (1854–1937). He also examines its importance for later generations inside and outside Germany, providing an important historical study of a discipline and its institutions.

REJOICE, DEAR ZION!

A Comparative Analysis of the Aramaic Votive Inscriptions from Mount Gerizim

Discussions about the phrase “Daughter of Zion” have not come to rest. The present book is a study of this and similar phrases from a linguistic point of view. Genitive as a category in Semitic grammar is treated in a separate chapter, and metaphor and irony are brought into the discussion. The author proposes new understandings and translations of the phrases.

REWRITING AND INTERPRETING THE HEBREW BIBLE The Biblical Patriarchs in the Light of the Dead Sea Scrolls   

In the recent two decades many unknown texts from Qumran have been published, which rework passages from the Hebrew Bible. Dated from the second and first centuries BCE these documents display the methods of biblical interpretation at this early stage and the links to the inner-biblical interpretation and final shaping of the Hebrew Bible. The volume concentrates on the various reworking of Genesis and the Patriarchs, which were a favorit subject of the owners of the Qumran library. The volume thus contributes to the exegesis of Genesis during the second and first centuries BCE, and its prehistory within the Hebrew Bible. Devorah Dimant, University of Haifa, Israel; Reinhard G.

This monograph explores Yahwistic votive practice in the Hellenistic period. The dedicatory inscriptions from the Yahweh temple on Mount Gerizim are the object of an investigation of Yahwistic votive practice, witnessed in and outside Biblical literature. The research begins the discussion by placing votive practice in a theoretical framework of gift-giving and fills a scholarly void by establishing this practice as an integral part of the sacrificial system in the Hebrew Bible. The Gerizim inscriptions are then analysed in their proper archaeological and religio-historical context. Anne Katrine de Hemmer Gudme, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

SCRIPTURAL AUTHORITY IN EARLY JUDAISM AND ANCIENT CHRISTIANITY   

The impact of earlier works to the literature of early Judaism is an intensively researched topic in contemporary scholarship. This volume is based on an international conference held at the Sapientia College of Theology in Budapest, May 18–21, 2010. The contributors explore scriptural authority in early Jewish literature and the writings of nascent Christianity. They study the impact of earlier literature in the formulation of theological concepts and books of the Second Temple Period. Géza G. Xeravits, Sapientia College of Theology, Budapest, Hungary; Tobias Nicklas, Universität Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany; Isaac Kalimi, The Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, IL, USA.   

In this fifth lecture of the Julius Wellhausen series, Hans Dieter Betz draws upon the Epistle to the Philippians to examine contentious questions about Paul‘s situation in Rome before his death. His answers emerge from a literary and historical analysis of the Philippians, in which the Apostle declares his fundamental beliefs in response to an inquiry by the Philippians (1,12). The study offers an overview of research work related to Paul‘s Epistle to the Philippians.

[Dementia in Theology and Pastoral Care]   

Persons with dementia present a challenge for theology and pastoral care. In a dialogue with traditional theological, medical, social psychological, and nursing science approaches, this work develops a practical theological method for describing and counseling persons suffering from dementia. It then elucidates specific forms of appropriate pastoral care for persons with dementia, including religious worship, biography work, bibliodrama, pastoral care for the body, and spiritual care of the dying.

Liebrucks uses the New Testament notion of the Logos to propose language as the logical structure for relating to the world. This opens up an engagement with Christian tradition that is at once experiential and speculative. The center of this study is an examination of the concept of God in the context of the question of freedom and its relevance for human self-understanding: what is the meaning of human freedom in the context of a real and existing God?

INTERNATIONALES JAHRBUCH DES DEUTSCHEN IDEALISMUS / INTERNATIONAL YEARBOOK OF GERMAN IDEALISM   

German Idealism is one of the most important and momentous epochs in modern philosophy. Agreement on the concept of philosophy and on what philosophical theory formation is capable of achieving was largely shaped - and its continued development ensured to this day - by systematic philosophy on foundations laid by Kant. Both in German-speaking countries and abroad, the volume of research on German Idealism has increased remarkably in recent decades. The intensity of exploration has been particularly notable in AngloAmerican regions. The International Yearbook of German Idealism is a response to this development. It gives international research on German Idealism a forum for discussion and provides an international framework for comparative investigation of theories and problems relating to German Idealism. It also addresses topics central to current philosophical debates. Jürgen Stolzenberg, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany; Fred Rush, University of Notre Dame, Indiana, USA.

“Freedom” is the central theme of classical German philosophy. Kant’s theory of freedom as a function of autonomy provided the first theoretical framework that expressed the political turn in self-understanding emerging from the French Revolution. For champions of philosophy who came after Kant, “freedom” became a fundamental element in their philosophical systems. Volume 9 of the Internationalen Jahrbuchs des Deutschen  Idealismus/International Yearbook of German Idealism addresses different interpretations of the notion of freedom that were put forward in Kant’s

[In the Realm of Reason. Hegel‘s Theory of Autonomous Reason] Hegels Theorie autonomer Vernunft   

According to Hegel, the capacity for freedom – understood as autonomous reason – is fundamental for thinking and knowing, and similarly, for wanting and acting. For Hegel, the “logical space of reason” constitutes a “realm of freedom.” Franz Knappik examines how Hegel developed these thoughts into a comprehensive theory that encompasses logic, metaphysics, epistemology, and practical rationality. In his discussions about the analytic approaches to interpretation and contemporary issues in philosophy, Knappik demonstrates both the originality of Hegel’s position and its relevance to contemporary thought.

Due to its scope and depth, Moore’s Causation and Responsibility is probably the most important publication in the philosophy of law in more than 50 years. This volume offers, for the first time, a detailed exchange between legal and philosophical scholars over Moore’s most recent work. In particular, it pioneers the dialogue between English-speaking and German philosophy of law on a broad range of pressing foundational questions concerning causation in the law. The collection is essential reading for anyone interested in legal and moral theory.

Classical Germany philosophy represents one of the most important and influential discursive formations in human thought. The essays in Subjectivity and Autonomy combine basic introductory material with systematic analysis of key concepts and questions. In addition to discussing central thinkers such as Kant, Fichte, and Hegel, the volume addresses the relevance of topics in classical German philosophy for current debates.

  

The 2nd edition has been revised and updated. Whoever wants to philosophize must do three things: analyze for himself, argue for himself, and interpret for himself. This book enables one to learn the methods of philosophy through exercises and solutions close to philosophical practice; particular emphasis is put on close textual interpretation. This book is excellent both for the university and for self-study.

The Handbook of Anti-Semitism compiles the present state of knowledge on the phenomenon of Judaeophobia without limits of time or space. Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of religious, cultural, social and political prejudice, and here it is presented and interpreted in all its manifestations – as an attitude, as a political model, as an instrumentalisation of emotions, as aggression ranging from pogroms to genocide. The main emphasis in the presentation is placed on the modern age up to the present.

The correspondence presented in this edited volume took place between the Papal nuncios at the Imperial Court and the Roman Curia between September 1631 and May 1633. These letters were written during the period of the great Swedish invasion of Germany, the recall of Wallenstein, and the death of King Gustavus Adolphus. Beyond documenting the military events of the times, these letters bear witness to the vastly different perspectives of the courts in Vienna and Rome regarding the opportunities for a new peace in Europe.    SUBJECTS Regional History   Other Regions, States, Cities; Early Modern Times   Editions, Reference Works TYPE OF PUBLICATION Dt.

This volume assembles contributions to Papal documentary research related to the works in the Gallia Pontificia. It presents detailed accounts about important topics, including the French-speaking world, the importance of the office of cardinal, and diplomacy. Following the restructuring of the work on the Gallia Pontificia in 2012, this compendium shows that it would make sense to undertake further studies, especially regarding the Orbis Christianus.

  

This volume is a collection of international contributions that address the relationship between the Papacy and the Iberian Peninsula during the High Middle Ages, a relationship that stood at the intersection of the Papal claim to universal power and the realistic limitations of Papal power on the far-away Iberian kingdoms. The articles deepen and expand current Papal historical scholarship on the relationship between the Roman center and its remote periphery.

DER TAG VON POTSDAM [The Day of Potsdam] Der 21. März 1933 und die Errichtung der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur   

On 21 March 1933, the National Socialists celebrated their alliance with the old Wilhelmine elites on the „Day of Potsdam.“ Eighty years following 1933, the great year of upheaval, this volume more closely reexamines the historical context of the „Day of Potsdam“ as a critical moment on the road to dictatorship. Nine scholarly articles reconstruct the events on the „Day of Potsdam,“ analyze its importance in the culture of commemoration, and examine ensuing stages in the Nazi assumption of power.

JEWISH IDENTITY IN THE RECONSTRUCTION SOUTH

SNORRI STURLUSONS MYTHOLOGIE UND DIE MITTELALTERLICHE THEOLOGIE

Ambivalence and Adaptation

[Snorri Sturluson’s Mythology and Medieval Theology]

  

How far can Jewish life in the South during Reconstruction (1863–1877) indeed be described as German in a period of American Jewry traditionally referred to as ‘German Jewish’ in historiography? To what extent were Jewish immigrants in the South acculturated to Southern identity and customs? Anton Hieke discusses the experience of Jewish immigrants in the Reconstruction South as exemplified by Georgia and the Carolinas. The book critically explores the shifting identities of German Jewish immigrants, their impact on congregational life, and of their identity as ‘Southerners’.

  

The study of North Germanic mythology has been greatly influenced by the writings of the Icelandic scholar and politician Snorri Sturluson (1178/9– 1241). Yet the past 200 years has seen much disagreement among Sturluson scholars. In this book, Jan Alexander van Nahl provides a constructive new way to think about the debates. He casts a critical eye on medieval interpretations and uses a lexematic analysis in examining the versions of Snorri’s work passed down through history.

Among the curiosities of the Soviet period are the new “revolutionary”  first names that were inspired by the communist ideology. Until today these creations are to be found as first names and patronymics. This volume throws light upon a so far unexplored chapter of modern Russian history and for the first time makes possible the deciphering of the artificially constructed first names that were created wholesale after 1917, such as “Lenmar” (Lenin, Marx) or “Ninel” (Lenin spelled backwards).    SUBJECTS Cultural History; Modern History; Applied Linguistics   Onomastics; Other Indo-European Languages   Slavic Languages TYPE OF PUBLICATION Reference Work READERSHIP Sowjetologen, Onomastiker, Liebhaber sprachlicher Kuriositäten.

JOURNALISM AND MEDIA CONVERGENCE

POLITISCHE KOMMUNIKATION IN ZEITEN DES MEDIENWANDELS

  

Journalism is under ever-increasing pressure, due in large part to the phenomenon of media convergence. Not only does media convergence redefine the tasks of journalists and newsrooms, it also reshapes the business environments of media companies. In this book, international media practitioners and researchers describe and analyze the relationships between media convergence and advertising, public relations, social media and other areas of communication posing a challenge to journalism.

[Political Communication in the Era of Media Change]   

At a number of moments in history, political communication has undergone radical changes. Today, the Internet is the latest and most conspicuous change in the media landscape. However, it is shortsighted to imagine that the processes of media change and media convergence have fully run their course after the hectic ascendance of the Internet. To better organize our thinking about the forms and implications of contemporary media change, the present compilation also explores the long-term history of political communication.

BIBLIOMETRIE [Bibliometrics: Simple, Clear, and Understandable] Einfach - verständlich - nachvollziehbar   

The quantification of knowledge to evaluate the performance of scholars or rank entire institutions, research locations, or nations is an increasingly common phenomenon. This volume introduces the subject of bibliometrics in concise form, describes the most important measurement techniques in a clearly understandable way, and explains how to independently create, assess, and interpret bibliometric analyses. The work is thus an easily readable and practical aid to decision-makers, science managers, academics, as well as librarians and information professionals.

MULTIVARIATE CHARACTERISTIC AND CORRELATION FUNCTIONS   

Multivariate characteristic functions are the Fourier transforms of distributions of random vectors. They represent an important tool for the study of ifferent problems of probability theory, e.g. limit theorems, characterization problems, and description of special distributions, but they also appear as correlation functions of stationary random fields. This book provides an introduction to the theory of these functions which may be useful also for readers who want to learn about multivariate Fourier transforms. It presents some special topics and several classical and recent applications. Several appendices make the book a must have source.

DISTRIBUTION THEORY Convolution, Fourier Transform, and Laplace Transform   

Every chapter starts with a summary and learning targets  Includes many excercises  Cocise and well-structured introduction to the topic 

  

The theory of distributions has numerous applications and is extensively used in mathematics, physics and engineering. There is however relatively little elementary expository literature on distribution theory. This book is intended as an introduction. Starting with the elementary theory of distributions, it proceeds to convolution products of distributions, Fourier and Laplace transforms, tempered distributions, summable distributions and applications. The theory is illustrated by several examples, mostly beginning with the case of the real line and then followed by examples in higher dimensions. This is a justified and practical approach, it helps the reader to become familiar with the subject. A moderate number of exercises are added. It is suitable for a one-semester course at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level or for self-study.

ELEMENTE DER DISKRETEN MATHEMATIK [Elements of Discrete Mathematics] Zahlen und Zählen, Graphen und Verbände   

The fundamental aim of this book is to communicate the knowledge necessary for a competent mathematical assessment of modern developments in the age of the Internet. Most crucially, this includes an understanding of very large graphs, calculating with large numbers, and calculating using prime number bases. Volker Diekert and Manfred Kufleitner, University of Stuttgart, Germany; Gerhard Rosenberger, Universität Hamburg, Germany.   

ENDLICHE GRUPPEN [Finite Groups: An Introduction] Eine Einführung   

Introduction to the techniques used in group theory  With numerous sample exercises  Biographical footnotes about the scientists involved provide an overview of the history of group theory 

  

This textbook provides an introduction to the techniques used in group theory. It spans the wide arc from the elementary nilpotent groups to finite simple groups, which constitute the building blocks for all finite groups and thus represent an important tool for all structural investigation of finite groups.

METROLOGY AND THEORY OF MEASUREMENT   

Metrology is the science of measurements. It is traceable to measurement standards, thus to the concept of measurement accuracy, which is used in all natural and technical sciences, as well as in some fields of social sciences and liberal arts. The key problem is one of obtaining knowledge of the physical reality, which is observed through a prism of an assemblage of quantity properties describing the objectively-real world. One of the fundamental tasks of metrology is the development of theoretical and methodological aspects of the procedure of getting an accurate knowledge relating to objects and processes of the surrounding world. Due to the rapid development of information technologies and intelligent measurement systems and measuring instruments, as well as to the growing usage of mathematical methods in social and biological sciences, this monograph is dedicated to convey the fundamental theory.

Treats cutting-edge topics such as flavin photocatalysis, enantioselective photocatalysis, organic and inorganic semiconductors, photohydrogenation, and analytical methods with time-resolved spectroscopy  Unique focus on visible light  Color illustrations 

  

Visible light is an abundant source of energy. While the conversion of light energy into electrical energy (photovoltaics) is highly developed and commercialized, the use of visible light in chemical synthesis is far less explored. Chemical photocatalysts that mimic principles of biological photosynthesis utilize visible light to drive endothermic or kinetically hindered reactions. This work summarizes in 16 chapters the state of the art and the challenges of this emerging future technology.

ENGINEERING CATALYSIS

Composite materials are engineered materials, made from two or more constituents with significantly different physical or chemical properties which remain separate on a macroscopic level within the finished structure. Due to their special mechanical and physical properties they have the potential to replace conventional materials. In nanocomposites the size of one phase is less than 100 nm in at least one dimension. Nanocomposites with polymer, metal or ceramic matrices find increasing application in bioengineering, battery cathodes, automotives, sensors and computers.

Truly „connecting the dots“ between biology and biological processes and chemistry, physics and engineering.  Biomimetics - an exciting and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field – yet no comprehensive textbook on the market.  Starts from the principles of this rather new approach and develops promising applications in a methodological and instructive manner.  Offering numerous examples, the book describes artificial and synthetic assemblies mimicking biological and living systems.   

Biological systems have always inspired mankind in the creation of new systems and technologies. In recent years the interfaces between the biological and non-biological worlds appear increasingly blurred due to significant advances both in our understanding of biological phenomena, as well as the development of sophisticated means to manipulate biological systems for varied applications.  Biomimetics as a discipline shows how biology and biological processes are manifested in diverse aspects of chemistry, physics and engineering. This book aims to methodically describe artificial and synthetic assemblies mimicking biological and living systems - from drug discovery to microelectronics and computer sciences.

Important topic: the production process of nearly every chemical substance or product used today requires a special catalyst.  Despite the plethora of books on catalysis on the market there is none: - focusing on engineering aspects of heterogeneous catalysis - at a graduate student level. 

  

With well over 90% of all processes in the industrial chemical production being of catalytic nature, catalysis is a mature though ever interesting topic.  The idea of this book is to tackle various aspects of heterogeneous catalysis from the engineering point of view and go all the way from engineering of catalysis, catalyst preparation, characterization, reaction kinetics, mass transfer to catalytic reactors and the implementation of catalysts in chemical technology. Aimed for graduate students it is also a useful resource for professionals coming from the more academic side. Dmitry Yu.

ENGINEERING RISK MANAGEMENT

INDUSTRIAL SEPARATION PROCESSES

  

The topic of this book, tough essential, is only seldom a part of university curricula and many professionals do not have the appropriate knowledge for managing risks from an engineering perspective.  The ideas, concepts, approaches, methods, etc. presented in this book are written in a logical and easily understandable way, with a strong link to industrial practice.  The theories presented in this book are based on both authors’ industrial experience as well as on years of teaching to students and professionals in this area. 

  

The book presents the engineering aspects of risk management. The introduction to potential risks is followed by management principles, risk diagnostic, analysis and treatment followed by examples of practical implementation in chemistry, physics and emerging technologies such as nanoparticles; financial and insurance domains are not covered. The book is aimed at students as well as at engineers or scientists faced with these issues in their day-to-day business.

ACTIVE AGEING AND SOLIDARITY BETWEEN GENERATIONS IN EUROPE First Results from SHARE after the Economic Crisis   

SHARE is an international survey designed to answer the societal challenges that face us due to rapid population ageing. How do Europeans age? Under which circumstances do older people and their families live, how healthy and active are they, and how did the crisis affect them? The authors of this multidisciplinary book have taken a first step toward answering these questions based on the recent SHARE data including a new social networks module.

Scientifically substantiated, practice-oriented and up to date, this revised edition informs readers about the more recent trends in the field of internet addresses (domain names) and the law relating to the use of a name in the age of “social communities”. In the commentary on the law on missing persons, the more recent developments are addressed with regard to the terms: death and war; the terms consumer and company are also comprehensively explained. The presentation is completed by an introduction to legal comparison and the conflict of laws (Introductory Law to the German Civil Code (EGBGB), Rome I Regulation).

Rev by Werner Bienwald, Barbara Veit Red. Michael Coester

  

This revised edition of the Law on General Terms and Conditions faithfully reflects the wave of judicial decisions and accompanying jurisprudential discussion taking place in this area. In the Commentary on § 305 of the BGB (German Civil Code), the differentiation between AGB (general terms and conditions) and individual agreements has been significantly expanded in the light of the most recent debates. Greater attention is also given to the admissibility of supplementary contractual interpretation in § 306. The revised edition spotlights the connections and interactions between legal decisions in specific cases and the comprehensive principles of the Law on General Terms and Conditions within the scope of the General Clause under § 307 of the BGB, including practice-relevant issues pertaining to energy supply contracts and collateral price agreements by banks. Interconnections between international and procedural issues are made clear for managing contractual clauses dealing with place of jurisdiction and choice of legal venue. The commentary on the catalogue of clauses in §§ 308 and 309 of the BGB reflects the extensive casuistry that has developed in recent years, particularly against the background of the new Law of Obligations. An entirely separate section is now devoted to questions pertaining to the review of terms and conditions under labor law.

The revised edition of Guardianship Law incorporates the latest revisions of care rights resulting from the Law Amending the Guardianship and Care Law of 29 June 2011, and also takes up academic and practical recommendations in relation to the upcoming major reform in the guardianship law. The revision of the provisions on remuneration and reimbursement for expense for guardians and caregivers has also been extensively updated.

SUBJECT Business, Commercial and Company

  

Articles 7 and 12 of the EGBGB (Introductory Statute to the Civil Code) deal with the links between legal capacity and the protection of domestic legal transactions against unknown restrictions of legal capacity arising from foreign law. Finally, in accordance with Article 13 of the Rome I Regulation, Article 12 of the EGBGB provides protection for transactions, and has primary practical significance with a view to rights of disposal over movable goods and domestic real estate. Some of the changes included as part of the new commentary on Article 9 of the EGBGB include those pertaining to the recognition of foreign death certificates and related administrative and judicial determinations. Also new in this edition is discussion concerning the  practical implementation of the adjustment rule enacted into law in 2007 under Article 47 of the EGBGB. In the domain of international contract law, Article 11 of the EGBGB was replaced effective 17 December 2019 by Article 11 Rome I Regulation.

The new German Bond Act has yet to prove itself in practice. As part of a half-day conference, prominent specialists from academia and practice shared their opinions about current problems arising from the new bond legislation. This volume of the conference proceedings documents and archives the delivered presentations. The authors present their views on how to proceed with managing the legal problems that have arisen to date. Similarly, they offer reform suggestions for strengthening Germany’s position in the international competition between legal systems.

EMPTY VOTING

ERBRECHT

[Empty Voting: The Risk of an Empty Exercise of Voting Power in the Law Governing Publicly Listed Joint Stock Companies]

[The Law of Inheritance]

Risikoentleerte Stimmrechtsausübung im Recht der börsennotierten AG   

The voting right is the central management right of stockholders. The conditions under which stockholders exercise their voting rights have changed substantially in recent years due to the expanded use of financial instruments and the appearance of new actors. This study comprehensively examines the problems resulting from this situation for publicly listed joint stock companies and discusses solutions, both de lege lata (as the law exists today) and de lege ferenda (with a view to future law).
