Menschen, die ihre Handys verschlingen, Bücher, die die Existenz Napoleons bestreiten und Seeräuber, die vorbildliche Kapitalisten abgeben – so absurd die Phänomene der modernen Gesellschaft erscheinen mögen, sie werfen dringliche Fragen auf: Blüht auf dem Boden einer überkorrekten Politik ein neuer Rassismus? Kann man sich im digitalen Dschungel durchschlagen, ohne völlig den Kopf zu verlieren? Ecos Antworten lassen das Röntgenbild einer modernen Gesellschaft entstehen, sie sind ein letztes Geschenk an seine Leser – scharfsinnig, witzig und immer erhellend. „Pape Satàn“ ist ein Buch, das belebend wirkt wie ein gutes Gespräch, und es ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Lesen.

Maggie Nelson kennt alle Schattierungen und Geheimnisse der Farbe Blau – stolz hütet sie ihre Sammlung blauer Objekte –, und sie kennt alle Künstler, die dem Blau verfallen waren: ob Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday oder Yves Klein. Aber zugleich nutzt sie die Farbe, um sich selbst zu erkunden. Denn hinter all dem Nachsinnen über Blau verbirgt sich die Geschichte einer tragischen Liebe. Er, der Prinz des Blauen, hat sie verlassen. Also gibt sie sich mit ganzer Kraft dem hin, was von ihm übrig ist: dem Blau. Kaum jemand hat seinen Schmerz auf so poetische, inspirierende Weise seziert, wie Maggie Nelson es hier tut – eine lyrische, philosophische und sehr persönliche Erkundung der eigenen Leidensfähigkeit.

Der Italiener Simone Simonini lebt in Paris, und er erlebt aus nächster Nähe eine dunkle Geschichte: geheime Militärpapiere, die der jüdische Hauptmann Dreyfus angeblich an die deutsche Botschaft verkauft, piemontesische, französische und preußische Geheimdienste, die noch geheimere Pläne schmieden, Freimaurer, Jesuiten und Revolutionäre - und am Ende tauchen zum ersten Mal die Protokolle der Weisen von Zion auf, ein gefälschtes „Dokument“ für die „jüdische Weltverschwörung“, das dann fatale Folgen haben wird. Umberto Eco, der Meister des historischen Romans, erzählt die Geschichte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, in der wir jedoch unser eigenes wiedererkennen können.

Writing for Social Scientists

Students and researchers all write under pressure, and those pressures—most lamentably, the desire to impress your audience rather than to communicate with them—often lead to pretentious prose, academic posturing, and, not infrequently, writer’s block. Sociologist Howard S. Becker has written the classic book on how to conquer these pressures and simply write. First published nearly twenty years ago, Writing for Social Scientists has become a lifesaver for writers in all fields, from beginning students to published authors. Becker’s message is clear: in order to learn how to write, take a deep breath and then begin writing. Revise. Repeat. It is not always an easy process, as Becker wryly relates. Decades of teaching, researching, and writing have given him plenty of material, and Becker neatly exposes the foibles of academia and its “publish or perish” atmosphere. Wordiness, the passive voice, inserting a “the way in which” when a simple “how” will do—all these mechanisms are a part of the social structure of academic writing. By shrugging off such impediments—or at the very least, putting them aside for a few hours—we can reform our work habits and start writing lucidly without worrying about grades, peer approval, or the “literature.” In this new edition, Becker takes account of major changes in the computer tools available to writers today, and also substantially expands his analysis of how academic institutions create problems for them. As competition in academia grows increasingly heated, Writing for Social Scientists will provide solace to a new generation of frazzled, would-be writers.

"Frieden durch Religion" - ein japanisches Modell

das interreligiöse Friedensprogramm der Risshö Ksei-kai (1957-1991) ; Studien zur Entwicklungsgeschichte, Zielsetzung und Funktion : Weichenstellungen in drei Jahrzehnten (1949-1979)

Zusammenarbeit fur den Frieden mit anderen Religionsgemeinschaften ist seit Mitte der sechziger Jahre ein besonderes Anliegen der modernen japanischen buddhistisch-gepragten Laienorganisation Risshō Kōsei-kai, insbesondere in der Person ihres Grundungsprasidenten Nikkyō Niwano (1906-1999). Wie und warum sich dieses interreligiose Friedensprogramm entwickelte und welche Zielsetzung und Funktion es fur die Risshō Kōsei-kai hat, ist Gegenstand dieser religionswissenschaftlichen Untersuchung. Das buddhistische Konzept einer zielgerichteten Anpassung bestimmt Entwicklung und Inhalte des Programms. Die inhaltlichen Vorstellungen von -Frieden durch Religion- sind vor allem gepragt von gesellschaftspolitischen Leitbildern im Japan der spaten Meiji-Zeit bis zum Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Sie haben fur die Risshō Kōsei-kai weltweiten Vorbild- und Fuhrungscharakter. Hierbei spielen die Beruhigung der Geister der Kriegstoten, die neokonfuzianische Ethik sowie die Lehren und Prophezeiungen des Lotus-Sūtra eine wichtige Rolle."

What does publishing in academic journals involve? What constitutes good academic writing? What is a productive academic writing process? This book unpacks the process of writing academic papers. It tells readers what good papers look like and how they can be written. Busy academics must develop productive writing practices quickly. No one has time for trial and error. To pass external tests of research output we must write to a high standard while juggling other professional tasks. This may mean changing writing behaviours. Writing for Academic Journalsdraws on current research and theory to provide new knowledge on writing across the disciplines. Drawing on her extensive experience of running writing workshops and working closely with academics on developing writing, Rowena Murray offers a host of practical and tested strategies for good academic writing: Providing more than ‘hints and tips’, this book helps readers develop understanding of how writing happens, what good writing looks and feels like, what gets published and what does not and why Combines all dimensions involved in writing: rhetorical, behavioural and psycho-social Analyses successful published examples Uses boxes, checklists and bullets to vary the pace of reading and facilitate learning of key points Makes it clear why some practices fail and others succeed Helps academics and aspiring academics overcome writing barriers and blocks. This jargon free, user-friendly book is essential for the desk of every academic, postgraduate student and researcher for whom publication is an indicator of the quality of their work and ability. Reviews and endorsements: This approach provides scientists with a systematic step-by-step method of producing a paper for publication. The approach streamlines the process and provides strategies for overcoming barriers. Feedback from the professions using the approach was excellent: - "I have totally changed my approach to writing an article". - "I feel more productive and in control of my writing." - "The strategies of snack writing and writing in small sections has allowed me to progress." Dr Mary Newton, Practice Development Facilitator, Physiotherapy Department, Greater Glasgow Primary Care NHS Trust, UK Rowena Murray’s book is extremely useful for new lecturers. This book provides guidance, strategies and tips for all of the different writing tasks that make up the process of writing a paper. Whether writing the first draft or the final draft, this book enables and inspires academics to develop their own writing strategies and goals. Lorna Gillies, Lecturer, Faculty of Law, University of Leicester, UK Our experience is that Rowena's practical approach works for busy academic staff. Not only does it enable them to increase their publication output and meet deadlines, but it boosts enthusiasm for writing and stimulates creative thinking. "Get on that course!" is what our academics say to each other about Rowena's Writing for Publication programme.
