Une analyse du discours onusien dans la perspective de l’histoire des religions
Ce livre ouvre un nouveau champ d’études : les dynamiques normatives globales relatives aux religions. Le cas de la norme internationale des droits de l’homme sur la pratique du crime d’honneur retient l’attention car elle a un potentiel de dissémination mondiale et participe à la controverse sur la religiosité de la pratique du crime d’honneur au Pakistan. En empruntant la perspective de l’histoire des religions et la méthode d’analyse du discours, l’auteure atteint trois objectifs : la reconstruction des événements qui produisent la norme internationale, la mise en exergue des mécanismes sous-jacents aux discours onusiens et l’examen de la religiosité des pratiques normatives onusiennes et pakistanaises.

Elena Švarc, Ol’ga Sedakova und Gennadij Ajgi
Der Traum als Medium transzendenter Erfahrungen ist ein bevorzugtes literarisches Motiv von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart. Auch in der russischen inoffiziellen Lyrik der Sowjetzeit entwickelt der Traum metaphysische Dimensionen, die auf individuelle Weise gestaltet werden. Anhand der Analyse exemplarischer Gedichte wird die Traumpoetik von Elena Švarc, Ol’ga Sedakova und Gennadij Ajgi erschlossen und im Hinblick auf ihre Spezifik vergleichend ausgewertet. Die dichterisch geformten Träume erweisen sich als Wege zur Gottesbegegnung (Sedakova), zu spiritueller Selbsterkenntnis (Švarc) oder auch zu mystischer Naturerfahrung (Ajgi). Die drei AutorInnen verorten sich dadurch im literaturhistorischen Kontext der metaphysischen Lyrik, deren Tradition sie durch das Traummotiv fortsetzen.

Effect of Teaching Mathematics Through Different Play Types on 1st Grade Students Achievements and Retention Levels
Since the elementary school years, the power of the play has been used in cognitive, social, motor, and affective ways to overcome students’ anxiety of mathematics. This book examines the effect of play-based learning method on the achievements of 1st-grade students within the scope of 8 different math plays prepared for objectives in the primary mathematics curriculum. Supported by students’ views on different math plays, including theoretical reflections on play-based learning and thoughts about methodological, empirical, and experimental approaches as well as analyses of various play studies, the research examines the role of child-centered teaching methods in primary school math curriculum from planning to play evaluation processes. Practical examples of different types of plays in teaching primary mathematics are presented to researchers and classroom teachers.

Intellectual, Political, and Social Debates in the Historical and Theoretical Framework for the Western Citizenship Case
This book discusses the political, social and cultural change of Western civilization since ancient Greek in the adventure of civic thought in political theory. The aim of this book is to contribute to the discussion of citizenship through "citizenship awareness", because the phenomenon of citizenship, which is sometimes included in other political and social theories in the Western literature, is an even less studied subject in the "citizenship awareness" dimension. This book, while giving the opportunity to examine the views of academicians and intellectuals living in the modern and post-modern period on citizenship through a single text, provides the views of these individuals within the framework of "citizenship awareness" to those who are interested in the subject with different comments and evaluations.
