Emotions penetrate every aspect of our lives. Interwoven with memory, attention, cognition, and decision making, they determine our interpersonal relations, our private life, the public sphere, and religious worship. Emotions had a particular significance also in ancient Greek culture, as Greek intellectuals were the first to theorize emotions in the Western world. A World of Emotions familiarizes the reader with the ubiquitous presence of emotions in Greek culture and life as well as their importance for an understanding of Greek art, literature, history, political life, society, and religion. It reveals how emotions are experienced, expressed, and aroused, how they are controlled or enslave us, how they are manipulated or evaluated. In doing so, it is hoped that this catalogue will trigger thoughts about the importance of emotions in our world, and show why the study of emotions in Classical Antiquity may help us to better understand our contemporary social and cultural environment. The catalogue A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC-200 AD accompanies a homonymous exhibition displaying a wide array of archeological finds from major museums and institutions in Greece, Europe, and North America. The exhibition is organized by the Onassis Foundation USA.

The Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies (JBTS) is an academic journal focused on the fields of Bible and Theology from an inter-denominational point of view. The journal is comprised of an editorial board of scholars that represent several academic institutions throughout the world. JBTS is concerned with presenting high-level original scholarship in an approachable way. Academic journals are often written by scholars for other scholars. They are technical in nature, assuming a robust knowledge of the field. There are fewer journals that seek to introduce biblical and theological scholarship that is also accessible to students. JBTS seeks to provide high-level scholarship and research to both scholars and students, which results in original scholarship that is readable and accessible. As an inter-denominational journal JBTS is broadly evangelical. We accept contributions in all theological disciplines from any evangelical perspective. In particular, we encourage articles and book reviews within the fields of Old Testament, New Testament, Biblical Theology, Church History, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, Philosophical Theology, Philosophy, and Ethics.

»Die Universalität von Krasznahorkais Blick zerstreut alle Zweifel an der zeitgenössischen Literatur.« W. G. Sebald Dem Zauber des Beginns ist immer schon der Schrecken des Endes eingeschrieben. Von den europäischen Schriftstellern seiner Generation hat keiner dies so deutlich erfahren wie der ungarische Autor und europäische Weltbürger László Krasznahorkai. In seinem Werk, das im Moment eine aufsehenerregende Rezeption im angelsächsischen Raum erfährt, wird eine so betörend luzide wie düstere Karte unserer Gegenwart gezeichnet. Das leuchtende Dunkel Becketts, in dem er sich mit Kafkas Kompass bewegt, steht auch hinter den Erzählungen seines neuen Buches ›Die Welt voran‹, das durch die Musikalität seiner Sprache und die Eindringlichkeit seiner Bilder zur Widerspiegelung einer beinah geretteten Welt wird.

"Manchmal ist der Schlüssel lange vor dem Schloss da. Manchmal fällt einem eine Geschichte in den Schoß. Einmal fielen fünfzig Kilo Aprikosen in meinen ..." Als ihre Mutter sich nicht länger um den Aprikosenbaum in ihrem Garten kümmern kann, fällt Rebecca Solnit die Ernte zu - und ein Jahr des Abschieds und des Neuanfangs beginnt: Ihre Mutter bekommt Alzheimer, sie selbst Brustkrebs, ihre Beziehung endet. Und während sie zurückblickt auf dieses Jahr der Aprikosen und der Notfälle, fasst Solnit die Erzählfäden ihres Lebens zusammen - denn es ist das Erzählen, das den Menschen ausmacht, ihn vor dem Vergessen schützt.

Das in den biblischen Texten durchgehend wirksame Offenbarungsgeschehen ist - unbeschadet der Frage nach der Historizität des Mose und des Exodus - ein Faktum von höchster Relevanz für die Abfolge der kulturellen Ordnungsvorstellungen. Die bisherige Kompaktheit des Seins wird aufgebrochen für eine unmittelbare Partnerschaft mit Gott, die in der Gabe des Dekalogs am Sinai ihre Vermittlung findet: Der Gottesnähe muß das Handeln der Menschen entsprechen. Indem der Dekalog aber die gesellschaftliche Existenz des Volkes ordnet, ist er auch zweideutig. Die in ihm begründete soziale Existenz Israels verhindert immer wieder einen reflektierten Transzendenzbezug. Das ist der Ausgangspunkt der Botschaft der Propheten. Sie verweisen auf den Widerspruch zwischen offenbarter Ordnung Gottes und realer gesellschaftlicher Unordnung. Dabei entwickeln sie zunehmend die menschheitlich-universale Dimension des Gottesbildes.

Teju Cole betrachtet Kunst, wie er die Welt betrachtet: mit dem Blick eines unsystematischen Historikers, der zunächst beobachtet, beschreibt, das Offensichtliche betrachtet, um zum weniger Offensichtlichen vorzudringen, das darunter liegt. Seine Essays handeln vom Unterwegssein, von politischer Moral, von Rassismus und von dem, was ihn geistig nährt, ob Essays von Baldwin, Gedichte von Tranströmer oder neue Meister der Fotografie auf Instagram. Und immer wieder zieht er erhellende Verbindungen, von der konkreten Gegenwart zur Dichtung, von der Geschichte zur Kunst. "Vertraute Dinge, fremde Dinge" offenbart den Reichtum von Teju Coles Interessen, hier findet er zum poetischen Kern seines Denkens und Schreibens.

What does the word 'schizophrenia' mean to you? Perhaps your first thought is of someone with a medical condition that involves some kind of brain disease? But what if you knew that the person in question had been through a traumatic childhood? Would that change how you thought about their mental health? And what impact does this have on how we as a society interact with people with mental distress? Psychology, Mental Health and Distress is the first mainstream textbook that reconsiders the traditional emphasis on the biological and psychiatric models for what is commonly, but contentiously, known as 'abnormal psychology' or 'psychopathology'. It provides a fully rounded account of mental distress, including social and relationship causes, and challenges your preconceptions about what you think you know about mental health. Key features: * Reflects new approaches to mental health and the kinds of psychological interventions (or 'treatments') for those experiencing distress, moving away from a limited diagnostic model * Offers a wealth of case stories to portray the reality of living with distress, building your empathy to encourage sensitive practice * Fully informed by current experimental, qualitative and theoretical psychological research including research into hearing voices * Written by a team of leading clinical and social psychologists with additional contributions by renowned figures including Richard Bentall, a bestselling Penguin author whose Madness Explained won the 2004 BPS Book Award * Includes a chapter authored by those with first-hand experience of mental health services, ensuring you understand the nuances of this emotionally charged, and often controversial, topic The authors draw from a range of experience, examples and approaches to present this student-friendly and engaging text: core reading for anyone serious about understanding mental health issues.

This German doctoral thesis challenges the orthodox view that the South-Caucasian culture of the Late Bronze Age played a decisive role in early iron production. The region is characterized, on the contrary, as a traditionally-bound aristocratic society with an impressive bronze industry. It was instead the underestimated nomad population of South-Eastern Turkey that first made use of the new metal and discovered the art of steel making. Climatic changes forced a southward migration, which not only brought the two cultures into contact, but also into conflict, with each other. However, a process of successful acculturation finally resulted in the creation of the Urartian Empire. While for some time the neighbouring Assyrian and Neohittite states remained hesitant towards the adoption of advanced iron technology, this soon changed when they recognized the opportunity for cheap mass-production. Text in German with English summary.
