Myrthe L. Bartels

Plato’s Pragmatic Project A Reading of Plato’s Laws

hermes - einzelschrift 111

the author

Myrthe Bartels is currently Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Erfurt, Germany. She specializes in ancient Greek philosophy, especially ancient ethics and political thought. She received her PhD in Classical Studies from Leiden University, the Netherlands. Subsequently, she was Visiting Scholar at the University of Edinburgh and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, also in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

When we think about Plato’s philosophy, his Laws is usually not the first work that comes to mind. Plato’s final magnum opus is a perplexing text in many ways, even apart from the fact that its very existence forces us to reflect on the question of how it relates to Plato’s other major political work, Republic. The debate about Plato’s Laws usually disregards its composition and the way in which the legislation takes shape in the dialogue. This book offers a fresh reading of Plato’s Laws that treats its form as an integral part of its philosophy, and asks what the way in which Plato’s legislative project is given shape in the text suggests about the status of that project. It argues that the legislative project is strikingly pragmatic for a work of Platonic philosophy and should therefore be understood in its own terms. Rather than laying down a definitive law code for a new colony (Magnesia) that is based on, or at least in some way presupposes, a metaphysical norm, Plato’s last work creates its own moral framework, in which lawgiving provides a convenient practical test for a notion of virtue understood as social conditioning. contents

Katharina Bolle / Carlos Machado / Christian Witschel (ed.)

The Epigraphic Cultures of Late Antiquity

heidelberger althistorische beiträge und epigraphische studien - vol. 60 the editors

Katharina Bolle studied Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Heidelberg University, where she recieved her PhD in 2014. Presently she is working as a post-doctoral researcher in the CRC 933 “Material Textcultures”. Carlos Machado was awarded a PhD in Ancient History from the University of Oxford. He is currently Lecturer in Ancient History in the School of Classics at the University of St. Andrews.

The diversity and wealth of epigraphic cultures in the late Roman Empire is the main focus of this volume. It offers a wide-ranging overview over the geographic and typological diversity of late antique epigraphy and explores the many ways in which people reacted to inscriptions and the monuments connected with them. Particularly the “epigraphic habit”, e.g. the complex network of making and using inscriptions, is looked at from different angles. This helps to understand the various political, cultural and religious structures characterized by it. The first part is dedicated to the study of the “epigraphic habit” in different parts of the Roman Empire and presents detailed quantitative analyses. The second part centers on various genres of inscriptions as well as on associated practices. In a third part “Christian epigraphy”, i.e. the impact of Christianity on the antique epigraphic culture, is addressed. A range of maps, charts and figures illustrate the studies and facilitate comparison. contributors

Rolf Strootman / Miguel John Versluys (ed.)

Persianism in Antiquity

oriens et occidens – vol. 25

the editors

The socio-political and cultural memory of the Achaemenid (Persian) Empire played a very important role in Antiquity and later ages. This book is the first to systematically chart these multiform ideas and associations over time and to define them in relation to one another, as Persianism. Hellenistic kings, Parthian monarchs, Romans and Sasanians: they all made a lot of meaning through the evolving concept of “Persia”, as the twenty-one papers in this rich volume illustrate at length. Persianism underlies the notion of an East-West dichotomy that still pervades modern political rhetoric. In Antiquity and beyond, however, it also functioned in rather different ways, sometimes even as an alternative to Hellenism.

Rolf Strootman is Associate Professor of History at Utrecht University. He studies imperial ideology, court culture and monarchical ritual in premodern empires. His current research project, “Royal Roads: The First World Empires and the Integration of Central Eurasia”, examines how the mobile royal court created trans-cultural connectivity in the Achaemenid and Seleukid empires.

The Quest for Europeanization Interdisciplinary Perspectives on a Multiple Process

The Quest for Europeanization Die Suche nach Europäisierung Interdisciplinary Perspectives on a Multiple Process Ein komplexer Prozess in interdisziplinärer Perspektive

studien zur modernen Geschichte – vol. 63

the editor

Gabriele Clemens is professor for modern Western European history at the University of Hamburg, and holder of a Jean Monnet Chair for European integration history and European studies. Her current research focuses on the history of the European integration process, European foreign policy and European public relations.

“Europeanization” is a widely used yet contested concept, particularly popular among scholars of European integration studies. With regard to processes of political change within the European Community and/or the European Union, Europeanization on the one hand describes the formal transfer of national sovereignty to the EC/EU level, the development of (European) institutions and the formulation of European policy. On the other, Europeanization denotes the impact of European policy on the domestic level, particularly in EC and EU member states. In this volume, historians, political scientists and linguists investigate the possibilities and limitations of Europeanization processes in both past and present, frequently addressing the assumed relationship between Europeanization and socialization. The chapters focus on Europeanization processes in the field of EC/EU foreign policy, within European institutions such as the European Parliament and in epistemic communities, as well as on the impacts of Europeanization on national political structures and actors. contributors

Human Rights Leagues in Europe (1898–2016)

historische Mitteilungen – vol. 98

the editors

Wolfgang Schmale is Full Professor for Modern and Contemporary History at the University of Vienna. His main fields of research are: history of human rights, European history, gender studies, Digital Humanities. Christopher Treiblmayr is a lecturer in Contemporary History at the University of Vienna and a member of research staff at QWIEN – Center for gay/ lesbian culture and history. His fields of research and teaching include gender studies, the history of National Socialism, human rights and civil society.

When the French Ligue des droits de l’homme was founded in 1898, it was the world’s first league for human rights. Over the following decades, human rights leagues were formed in many other countries following its example, and from 1922, they advocated for a universal human rights ideal under the auspices of a shared umbrella organization. The majority of these leagues were forced to interrupt their activities at some point, especially during the National Socialist period. After World War II, many leagues experienced a renaissance. Not least through their cooperation with the United Nations, they significantly contributed to the global acceptance of the very idea of human rights in the second half of the 20th century. The contributors in this volume break new ground: they provide a so-far lacking overview of international research on human rights leagues, synthesizing it and identifying research desiderata. Some of the presented civil society associations, like those in Eastern Europe, have never before been subject to scholarly consideration. contributors

Gabrielle Robilliard

Tending Mothers and the Fruits of the Womb The Work of the Midwife in the Early Modern German City

Medizin, Gesellschaft und Geschichte – vol. 64

the author

Gabrielle Robilliard is an independent scholar and academic translator specialising in the history of medicine, in particular early modern midwifery and obstetrics in Germany, as well as the history of early modern work. She completed her doctorate at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, and has lectured in the history of medicine at the Universities of Bremen and Lüneburg.

The early modern period saw a fundamental shift in the history of childbirth from midwifery as a traditional, largely female occupation to modern obstetrics. The seeds of this transformation were sown in the cities, where municipal governments and their medical officials began reworking the often centuries-old systems of municipal midwifery. In Leipzig they overhauled midwife education and in the 1730s appointed a municipal man-midwife. But why all the commotion about midwifery? How ‘novel’ were these developments really? And how did all these changes affect the everyday work of the city’s midwives? Drawing on a vast array of administrative sources, Gabrielle Robilliard explores the world of Leipzig’s midwives and early man-midwives from 1650 to 1810. Employing a prosopographical approach, she illuminates in minute detail the occupational culture and structure of both official and unofficial midwifery within the city – including social and economic milieus, client networking practices, and inter- and intraprofessional rivalries – and examines the nature of the encounter between traditional practice and new ways of organising urban midwifery provision. contents

Åshild Fause, Sandra Harrisson, Geertje Boschma, Jens Gründler, Sylvelyn Hähner-Rombach, Sabine Braunschweig, Karen Nolte, Thomas Foth & Cheryl McWatters & Jette Lange & Mary B. Connell, Maike Rotzoll, Christof Beyer

Main subject of this volume is the history of psychiatric nursing. The contributors summarise the state of international research in this area – especially focussing on the relationship between the patient and the nurse. The topics range from the “hospitalisation and dehospitalisation” of patients in mental asylums using the example of Norway and Canada to the issue of how nurses with deviant behaviour were managed in Switzerland. Furthermore, this edition discusses the role of nurses in conducting so-called “Heroic Therapies” in Canada and Germany, such as shock and fever therapies. One section also looks at the situation of patients in Scotland and Austria, including children, in the asylum or clinic and within their social environment. Nursing in Germany experienced a fundamental change in the 1970s; what kind of nurse training and education made possible this reform is the topic of the last part of this edition.

Socio-Economic Development of Indawgyi Lake, Myanmar

urban and regional development in myanmar – vol. 1

the author

Zin Mar Than received her PhD at the University of Cologne where she is currently a Research Associate at the Institute of Geography.

Indawgyi Lake in Kachin State, located in the northern part of Myanmar, is the largest inland freshwater lake in the country, with rich aquatic flora and fauna, high biodiversity and a (largely) intact ecosystem. Since 1999 the “Indawgyi Wetland Bird Sanctuary” has been declared a conservation area. Still, it is a peripheral region and lagging behind in its development. At present the three main economic activities are agriculture, fishing and gold mining. Zin Mar Than offers an in-depth analysis of the socio-economic situation of the area and identifies its future development potentials using the SWOT approach (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats). In this context the author discusses concepts of endogenous development and sustainability. Special emphasis is placed on developing ecotourism as a fourth economic activity in the area and to meet the needs of long-term conservation.

Demanding Water A Sociospatial Approach to Domestic Water Use in Mexico City

Megacities and global change / Megastädte und globaler Wandel – vol. 22 the author

Anke Schwarz studied Urban Planning in Hamburg and Vienna, and obtained a PhD in Urban Geography from University of Hamburg in 2016. Between 2006 and 2014, her extensive research on Mexico City was supported by scholarships from the Heinrich Böll Foundation. Schwarz specializes in the social production of space and territory, the spatialization of social inequalities, urban infrastructures, and everyday practices.

In the essentially water-rich basin of Mexico City, water taps are now installed in most homes. Yet in many of the city’s poorer neighborhoods in particular, water is supplied intermittently and taps often remain dry. How does such a socially constructed water scarcity affect water-related everyday practices in the home? And what is the relation between urban space and domestic practices of water use? In this study, Anke Schwarz employs a sociospatial approach which infuses Pierre Bourdieu’s Theory of Practice with a relational understanding of space. She draws upon in-depth interviews with 53 residents of Mexico City’s Federal District, taking subjective experience as a starting point, and adds a historical angle through the instrument of habitat biographies. With respect to the pressing issue of urban water supply, Schwarz offers a fresh perspective to urban geography by placing an emphasis on a sociospatial approach on the micro scale. She demonstrates how water use can be a demanding everyday task even in cities where virtually all dwellings do have water taps. Rooftop tanks and jugs of bottled water are only the most visible tokens of the differences made by such supply limitations. contents

Megha Sud

Political Ecology of the Ridge The Establishment and Contestation of Urban Forest Conservation in Delhi

Megacities and global change / Megastädte und globaler Wandel – vol. 23 the author

Megha Sud is a Policy Analyst focusing on environmental politics and the interface between environment and development. She has a PhD in Human Geography from the University of Cologne and currently works at the OECD on biodiversity policy. She has worked with TERI and WWF India in the past and received her Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University of Delhi (Hindu College), and her Master’s Degree in Development Studies from Tata Institute of Social sciences, Mumbai.

The remains of the time-worn Aravalli Mountains that extend through Delhi are known as the Ridge. The range is also the site of Delhi’s once continuous but now scattered forests, four segments of which are legally protected as wildlife conservation areas today. How did a biodiversity park and a wildlife sanctuary come to be established in a large and rapidly growing megacity with severe competition for land resources? What does this mean for various citizens who use the forests for different purposes? Megha Sud provides an insight into the answers to these questions by examining the negotiations that led to the establishment of conservation as the dominant discourse in the Ridge, highlighting the role of various actors and the unequal power relations embedded in these deliberations and their outcomes. In this study she brings together concepts from political ecology and urban political ecology, using literature on local politics and development to ground the argument in the context. She argues that the forested spaces of Delhi must be understood as implicated in the socio-political structures of the city if urban conservation policies are to be sustainable both socially and environmentally. contents

the editor

Kosuke Nasu is associate professor at the Graduate School of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University.

Brian Tamanaha has consistently sought his own version of general jurisprudence, stressing mutual influence between law and cultural and historical diversity of human lives. Now he takes a “third-way” approach of jurisprudence, which inherits the viewpoints of legal realism, historical jurisprudence, and sociological jurisprudence. Tamanaha identifies several alluring problems, like the complacence of the “law and development” projects, the prevalence of legal instrumentalism, the debate between legal formalists and legal realists, and the universal value and applicability of the rule of law. The contributors of this volume critically approach Tamanaha’s arguments and hypotheses, or his methodological position, some from particular contexts of historical experiences of Japanese society, and some from more general and theoretical perspectives. This will help us to deepen the understandings about certain central problems of jurisprudence and philosophy of law, as well as significance of Tamanaha’s own jurisprudential accomplishments and future prospects. contributors

Hans Kelsen

Secular Religion A Polemic against the Misinterpretation of Modern Social Philosophy, Science and Politics as “New Religions” Edited by: Robert Walter, Clemens Jabloner and Klaus Zeleny

Despite reworking and rewriting Secular Religion for about ten years Hans Kelsen finally withdrew the text from printing in 1964. After long and careful consideration the Hans KelsenInstitut has now decided to lift the veil on Kelsen’s somewhat mysterious last book and to bring Secular Religion to a wider public. In this book Kelsen vehemently opposes any attempt to discredit modern science as failed religion, a view prominently held by Kelsen’s former student Eric Voegelin. Any contemporary trend towards a “new” de-secularization will have to face Kelsen’s criticism. Furthermore, as Kelsen convincingly demonstrates, any trend towards a “new” theologization holds the danger of totalitarianism. In this context Kelsen‘s text from 1964 offers an excellent contribution to a current discussion.
