Post-analytical philosophy of law departs from the traditional view which considers philosophical cognition merely as a sense-making and optimizing activity. It also questions the apparently universal and objective character of the theorems put forward by existing analytical philosophy. Just like every scientific trend whose name is supplemented with the "post" prefix, it does not break with its past, but rather seeks to critically revisit its established achievements. The main goal of post-analytical philosophy is no longer to impose a conceptual structure upon chaos in the realm of legal and political phenomena. Rather, it seeks to deconstruct the analytical, both philosophical and legal, narrative to expose it as a collection of schemes which oversimplify – if not mystify – the legal and political reality. This kind of diagnosis paves the way towards the construction of a positive program of post-analytical philosophy of law, which the focus of this book.

Russisch und Ukrainisch im Wandel

Eine korpusbasierte Untersuchung zur Destandardisierung am Beispiel der Anglisierung in der Werbesprache nach 1985

Series:

Olga Flug

Die Publikation zu Sprachwandelprozessen im Russischen und Ukrainischen beschreibt eine ausschlaggebende Phase der neueren Sprachgeschichte Russlands und der Ukraine (1985–2008). Im Fokus steht die Anglisierung als eine der Haupttendenzen der aktuellen sprachlichen Destandardisierung europäischer Sprachen. Die Autorin zeigt am Beispiel der Anglisierung in der Werbesprache die Destandardisierung des Russischen und Ukrainischen nach 1985 auf. Diese korpusbasierte Untersuchung umfasst sowohl die quantitative (statistische) als auch die qualitative (systemlinguistische) Analyse des werbesprachlichen Korpus. Die quantitative chronologische Analyse belegt die deutlich stärkere Dynamik der Anglisierung im Ukrainischen nach 1998. Die qualitative Analyse illustriert die unterschiedlichen bzw. gemeinsamen innerlinguistischen Prozesse in beiden Sprachen, insbesondere Anglizismen-Integration und Standardisierungswege.

Die Unabhängigkeitsbestrebungen Kataloniens von Spanien bilden ein wiederkehrendes, politisch brisantes Thema in ganz Europa. In diesem Zusammenhang untersucht diese Studie die Wurzeln regionaler Darstellungen in der Literatur der spanischen Aufklärung auf der diskursiven Ebene und zeigt die Herausbildung politisch-ökonomischer Interessen einzelner Provinzen im Kontext des spanischen Reformprojekts des 18. Jahrhunderts auf.

Die praktische Bedeutung der Eigentumsdelikte in allen Ländern der Europäischen Union ist erheblich. Vor dem Hintergrund, dass der Rechtsvergleich zwischen Deutschland und Spanien eine lange Tradition hat, geht der Autor der Frage nach, wie der spanische Gesetzgeber Angriffe auf das Eigentum mittels des Strafrechts zu begegnen sucht und welche Ansatzpunkte sich daraus für eine Fortentwicklung des deutschen Strafrechts ergeben könnten. Dazu wird eine Untersuchung des Eigentumsbegriffs in beiden Rechtsordnungen vorgenommen sowie die Struktur des Eigentumsschutzes im spanischen Strafrecht dargelegt. Nachfolgend werden die einzelnen Eigentumsdelikte des Código Penal ausführlich dargestellt.

Unsettling Education

Searching for Ethical Footing in a Time of Reform

Series:

Edited by Brian Charest and Kate Sjostrom

Unsettling Education: Searching for Ethical Footing in a Time of Reform offers a counter-narrative to the prevailing orthodoxies of schooling and school reform that conflate education and learning with that which can be measured on state-mandated examinations. Despite the push to "settle" the purposes of teaching and schooling in ways that see education as the teaching of a discrete set of skills that align with standardized exams, there are teachers and students who continue to resist standardization and whose stories suggest there are many ways to organize schools, design curriculum, and understand the purposes of education. Unsettling Education shares stories of how teachers have resisted state and local mandates to teach to the test in dehumanizing ways, how such teachers have sought to de-commodify educational spaces, how they have enacted their ethical commitments to students and communities, and how they have theorized such practices, sometimes even reconsidering their roles as teachers and the very purposes of schooling. Volume contributors offer concrete ways in which teachers might challenge the structures of schooling to reveal the full humanity and potential of students through different forms of resistance pedagogy, institutional critiques, and critical self-reflection. Featuring a wide range of voices and contexts, the collections’ chapters blend story and theory, resulting in a volume both accessible and thought-provoking to varied audiences—from undergraduate students of education and concerned citizens to veteran educators, teacher educators, administrators, and policymakers.

It is established that the informal sector plays an important role in the creation of job opportunities for many rural and urban people. However, there is a scarcity of academic research on the relationship between gender, informality of employment and poverty reduction in Morocco with particular reference to the city of Fez. This book focuses on investigating the contribution of women’s self-employed work in the informal sector in reducing household poverty in the city of Fez. This is done through the medium of specific framework objectives. First, the book sets out the types of women engaged in informal sector activities in the city of Fez. Secondly, it makes a situational analysis of the contribution of women’s work in the informal sector to reduce poverty in their households in this region of Morocco. Thirdly, it identifies the linkages between working as self-employed persons and emancipation of women through their participation in political and social activism in Fez and lastly, it uncovers the main difficulties impeding the development of women in self-employed activities in the informal sector and identifies the various challenges for the development of their businesses in Fez.

О некоторых тенденциях в современной русскоязычной поэзии (на материале А. Сен-Сенькова и группы «Орбита»)

Series:

Edited by Massimo Maurizio

В русскоязычном поэтическом пространстве последней четверти века можно наблюдать целый ряд тенденций писательских стратегий, так или иначе направленных на определение места и роли пишущего (но не только) субъекта в мире возникших после крушения СССР «сценариев» (Кукулин). На примере творчества А. Сен-Сенькова и группы «Орбита» мы обращаем внимание на выразительные, формальные и композиционные средства, с помощью которых авторы пытаются снова ре-индивидуализировать (Кузьмин) личное высказывание и модальности самовыражения в контексте «постправды» и «текучей» современности.

How Stories Teach Us

Composition, Life Writing, and Blended Scholarship

Edited by Amy E. Robillard and D. Shane Combs

In How Stories Teach Us: Composition, Life Writing, and Blended Scholarship, Amy E. Robillard and D. Shane Combs leave behind the debate between the personal and the academic in composition studies in order to witness what happens when composition scholars allow both the personal and the academic to act upon them in the stories they tell. The editors and contributors, in blending their scholarship, celebrate the influence of life writing on their work and allow the contexts of their lives and the urgency of their stories to blend together for a range of approaches to scholarship and essay writing. This blended scholarship features scholars and teachers dealing with loss, grief, illness, trauma, depression, abuse, gender identity, and the ravages of time. How Stories Teach Us is both a challenge and an invitation to composition scholars to pursue a fuller and more robust approach to their scholarship and life stories. It is also an invitation to teachers of composition to open up the potentials of blended scholarship to the students they teach.

Als Folge der mehr als 120-jährigen Teilungszeit galten in Polen nach 1918 fünf verschiedene Zivilrechte. Die Verabschiedung eines Obligationsgesetzbuches 1933 war ein wesentlicher Schritt zur innerstaatlichen Rechtsvereinheitlichung. Die Bedeutung des deutschen Rechts in diesem Prozess wird in dem vorliegenden Buch am Beispiel des Leistungsstörungsrechts untersucht. Anhand ausgewählter Faktoren werden die Rahmenbedingungen damaliger polnischer Gesetzgebung beleuchtet, die durch die unterschiedliche Entwicklung der ehemaligen drei Teilungsgebiete geprägt waren. Die Autorin nimmt auch auf die Biographien der Gesetzesautoren Bezug. Eine Auswertung des damaligen deutschen Schrifttums zeigt zudem, dass das Gesetz in der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft positiv wahrgenommen wurde.

Scholars and pop culture enthusiasts alike will find something to love as this collection moves from a look at traditional interactive media, such as video games, to nostalgia within all things digital and ends with a rethinking of the potentials of nostalgia itself.
