L’image du Soi

Fichte – Feuerbach – Althusser

Series:

Luc Vincenti

Ce livre sur l’identité personnelle se distingue des recherches contemporaines par la présentation des racines de la conscience de soi dans les philosophies modernes de la réflexion et de la subjectivité. Le Soi, comme acte réflexif, est rapproché de l’image laquelle est constituée par le rapport entre ses éléments. Définir la conscience de soi en termes d’image conduit vers la philosophie tardive de Fichte, mais aussi vers Feuerbach qui définit l’essence humaine comme projection d’une image, et vers Althusser reprenant le redoublement spéculaire dans sa critique de l’idéologie. La filiation des trois auteurs n’a jamais été étudiée, on la trouve entre autres dans le dépassement de l’individu ou la dimension universelle de la conscience de soi. Ce parcours permet ainsi de comprendre comment par la défense de l’humanisme pratique et l’inévitable part de l’imaginaire idéologique dans l’engagement social, Althusser rejoint Fichte en refusant la réification de l’idéal au profit d’un dynamisme expliquant et enveloppant l’action morale et politique.

Stockholmer literarische Entscheidungen

Zu den Ausleseprozessen bei der Vergabe des Nobelpreises für Literatur am Beispiel deutschsprachiger Kandidaten - von Theodor Mommsen bis Hermann Hesse

Series:

Janina Gesche

Alfred Nobels Testament wohnt eine Dynamik inne, die alljährlich für internationale Kontroversen sorgt. Die Schwedische Akademie, die diese Auszeichnung verleiht, versucht seit Beginn ihrer Tätigkeit, die von Nobel festgelegten Richtlinien vor dem Hintergrund gegenwärtiger literarischer Strömungen bzw. Tendenzen auszulegen. Die vorliegende Untersuchung setzt sich mit dem Literaturnobelpreis und seinen deutschsprachigen Preisträgern der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts auseinander. Anhand von Archivmaterial (Nominierungen, Gutachten, offiziellen Schreiben und privaten Briefen) wird gezeigt, auf welch vielfältige Weise das Auswahlverfahren funktioniert. Die dabei gewonnenen Einblicke in die Abläufe machen die hinter den jeweiligen Entscheidungen stehenden auch auβerliterarischen Zusammenhänge deutlich.

Debates around agroecology most often focus on the depth and radicality of the change and relate to different visions of agroecology, which tends to eclipse the ontological relationships of actors (or researchers) to the very ‘change process’ itself.

This book is an endeavor to explicate relationships to change in agroecological transitions, referring to two contrasting and ideal-typical ontological relationships to change, the determinist perspective and the open-ended perspective. These conceptions or interpretations of the change process are based respectively on whether objectives and means are predetermined, or defined during the change process and while accounting for the uncertainty and complexity of mechanisms of change as well as for the diversity of actors’visions.

Many diverse cases of agroecological transitions are discussed in this book, in order to highlight the fact that these perspectives are not always exclusive in transition process but that they can be articulated successively or combined complementarily, in different ways - thus reinforcing the potential diversity of transition pathways.

Ce livre suit les cheminements de l’institutionnalisation de la catégorie de pères et de mères de l’Europe. Ce que furent les pères de l’Europe et comment ils le sont devenus : l’objectif de cet ouvrage est de saisir ce processus de consécration. Dans un premier temps, leurs positions et ressources dans leurs champs politiques nationaux ainsi que leurs investissements variés dans l’Europe leur permettent d’acquérir dès les années 1950 des réputations durables. Des organisations portent ensuite les mémoires des pères de l’Europe : la construction d’un héritage des pères de l’Europe est bâtie par des individus qui se positionnent comme les héritiers de ceux-ci. L’originalité de cette approche est de placer l’analyse à l’échelle des groupes sociaux, tels que ceux constitués dans des associations de souvenirs, ou plus institutionnalisés, dans des partis politiques, ou des fédérations européennes de partis, qui constituent des instances très actives dans ce processus de construction de la mémoire. Ces organisations instituent des pratiques commémoratives enracinées dans les identités territoriales à différentes échelles, locale, régionale, nationale et européenne. Plus globalement, ce livre se propose de montrer que la commémoration, les politiques mémorielles et l’histoire représentent un enjeu fort de la construction européenne.

The "Worlds of Portuguese Language" series encompasses different cultural domains related to the Portuguese language without restrictions of thematic, historical or geographical kind. The underlining notion of language is that of a space of deconstruction, conducive to a broader reflection on spatial and temporal correlations, forms of porosity, mobility and exchange within a broad thematic and disciplinary horizon. To promote interdisciplinarity for a global understanding of cultural phenomena is one of our main concerns. From intercultural and plurilingual heritage, and their embodiment of a certain idea of ​​translation, to visual and performing arts, the series welcomes reflections on the text in its different literary modes (whether lyrical, narrative or dramatic) and on inter-artistic approaches which bring together different semiotic systems. Questions arising from postcolonial and postdictatorial memory will put in perspective major research topics related to the representation of the physical and social body, migration and new approaches to pedagogy and teaching.

Mundos de língua portuguesa é uma coleção que tem por vocação abordar os diversos domínios culturais em ligação com a língua portuguesa sem restrição temática, temporal ou geográfica.

A língua é aqui concebida como um espaço de desconstrução, propício a uma reflexão alargada sobre as mobilidades espácio-temporais, as porosidades, os intercâmbios e as comunicações num largo horizonte temático e disciplinar. O objetivo é o de valorizar a interdisciplinaridade visando uma compreensão global dos fenómenos culturais. As heranças interculturais e plurilingues, as suas relações com uma ideia da tradução são abordadas assim como as artes visuais e de cena, o texto nos seus diferentes modos (lírico, narrativo, dramático), abrindo para uma abordagem interartística que engloba vários sistemas semióticos.

A partir das questões da memória pós-colonial e pós-ditatorial são postas em perspetiva temáticas que desenvolvem as representações do corpo físico e social, as migrações assim como as novas abordagens de pedagogia e de ensino.

O Poeta-Teólogo

Revisitações literárias do imaginário bíblico em alguma poesia portuguesa do século XX

Series:

Goncalo Placido Cordeiro

Este livro propõe a reconsideração do estado das relações entre a Bíblia e a literatura em torno de um pacto, de longa tradição, firmado entre poesia e teologia. A questão da dessemantização bíblica constitui foco de uma inquietação, ao verificar como a Bíblia tem sido sujeita à usura sistemática de uma lógica interpretativa, de acantonamento teológico, que de algum modo encapsulou o objecto bíblico e o exauriu. A proposta aqui apresentada investe na análise da obra de quatro poetas portugueses do século XX de modo a interrogar neles os efeitos da solicitação interpretativa do texto bíblico, elevado à categoria de matéria literária por excelência. Os diferentes modos de revisitação de uma tradição literária, religiosa e cultural serão tomados como manifestações de um fazer poético sensível às potencialidades de significação da herança bíblica, a que tanto Ruy Belo, Daniel Faria, Tolentino Mendonça, como Miguel Torga se encontram vinculados, entroncando assim numa linhagem poética que aqui se declina em torno dos eixos paradigmáticos do sagrado e do profano, da mística, da hermenêutica e da heterodoxia.

The main theme of this book is how newly excavated texts have provided new energy and perspectives to allow us to renew our understanding of ancient Chinese thought, especially that of Confucianism. Through an analysis of texts from the Guodian, Shanghai Museum, and other collections of excavated manuscripts, this book undertakes a wide-ranging analysis of Confucian thought in itself and also its influence on other trends of thought in ancient China. It focuses on such topics as morality, virtue, and self-cultivation, political philosophy, circumstance, and the relationship between human beings, others, and the natural world. It rethinks core Confucian concepts such as ren or "benevolence" and shendu or "maintaining one’s moral nature" as well as great Confucian notions on circumstance and political philosophy. This book also illustrates the influence that Confucian philosophy had during the Warring States period showing that elements of its moral philosophy informed the consciousness and behavior of state officials in such places as the state of Qin. Excavated texts are an inescapable part of Chinese philosophy, as such this book is invaluable to anyone wishing to understand ancient Chinese philosophy, Confucianism, and anyone interested in the interplay between material and intellectual culture.

Experience in the Early Thought of George Tyrrell

Human, Religious, Christian, Catholic

Lawrence J. Donohoo

This study undertakes a comprehensive inquiry into the concept of experience in the thought of George Tyrrell from his earliest writings to 1900. No aspect of experience is passed over in its human, religious, Christian, and Catholic inflections. Tyrrell pursued a vast array of subjects and addressed them in often novel ways, even in his formative years, and at every stage of his thought he encountered the question of experience wherever he roamed. A study of experience in Tyrrell’s early works thus effectively offers a sweeping survey of the full gamut of his early thought. In the beginning we see that he came to recognize only gradually the significance of this category for all his inquiries. While scholars have traced experience in Tyrrell’s mature thought and researched its role in such targeted fields as ecclesiology and fundamental theology, the early writings by contrast have been largely passed over. This suggests a need for an unrestricted search at the origin of Tyrrell’s thought that tracks his discovery, formation, and evolution of this concept. We discover that its flexible and enigmatic character shapes and unifies the various questions that Tyrrell addressed over the years, thus marking his mature theology with a distinct character that was passed on to others in the universe of experience.
