Book History of Semiotics

Download or read book History of Semiotics written by Achim Eschbach and published by John Benjamins Publishing. This book was released on 1983 with total page 403 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food for thought in the critical approach to even the least questioned facts of semiotic history and the emphasis given to hitherto neglected problems and persons.

Book On the Use and Abuse of History for Life

Download or read book On the Use and Abuse of History for Life written by Friedrich Nietzsche and published by BoD – Books on Demand. This book was released on 2020-05-08 with total page 193 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The treatise "On the Use and Abuse of History for Life" is one of Nietzsche's early writings on culture. It was published in 1874, after his professorship in Basel, Switzerland. At first, there was hardly any response to this text. It was only with the reception of Heidegger during the twenties and thirties of the next century that it developed its historical effect on modern thinking. Thanks to its easy-to-understand account, this paper is well suited to understand the thinking of the early Nietzsche. In addition, basic features of his later concepts of the "revaluation of all values" and the "overman" can already be detected here. In addition to the English language version, this e-book also contains the original German text.

Book Marcion and his impact on church history

Download or read book Marcion and his impact on church history written by Gerhard May and published by Walter de Gruyter. This book was released on 2002 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Der Band versammelt neue Forschungsbeiträge zu Marcion, dem bedeutendsten Ketzer der christlichen Antike, und setzt sich dabei insbesondere mit Adolf von Harnacks epochaler Marcioninterpretation auseinander. Harnacks Bild von Marcion als eines biblizistischen Theologen und treuen Paulusschülers, der den theologischen Entwicklungen des 2. Jahrhunderts fremd gegenübersteht, hat sich als historisch fragwürdige Modernisierung erwiesen. Die einzelnen Beiträge des Bandes ordnen Marcion und die marcionitische Kirche wieder in ihren historischen Kontext ein. Erstmals werden auch die theologiegeschichtlichen Hintergründe der Marciondeutung Harnacks und ihre Rezeption im 20. Jahrhundert gründlicher beleuchtet.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Honour, Violence and Emotions in History is the first book to draw on emerging cross-disciplinary scholarship on the study of emotions to analyse the history of honour and violence across a broad range of cultures and regions. Written by leading cultural and social historians from around the world, the book considers how emotions - particularly shame, anger, disgust, jealousy, despair and fear - have been provoked and expressed through culturally-embedded and historically specific understandings of honour. The collection explores a range of contexts, from 17th-century China to 18th-century South Africa and 20th-century Europe, offering a broad and wide-ranging analysis of the interrelationships between honour, violence and emotions in history. This ground-breaking book will be of interest to all researchers studying the relationship between violence and the emotions.

Book A History of the World in 47 Borders

Download or read book A History of the World in 47 Borders written by Jonn Elledge and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2024-04-25 with total page 398 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Fascinating and hugely entertaining' MARINA HYDE 'By turns surprising, funny, bleak, ridiculous, or all four of those at once' GIDEON DEFOE People have been drawing lines on maps for as long as there have been maps to draw on. Sometimes rooted in physical geography, sometimes entirely arbitrary, these lines might often have looked very different if a war or treaty or the decisions of a handful of tired Europeans had gone a different way. By telling the stories of these borders, we can learn a lot about how political identities are shaped, why the world looks the way it does - and about human folly. From the Roman attempts to define the boundaries of civilisation, to the secret British-French agreement to carve up the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, to the reason why landlocked Bolivia still maintains a navy, this is a fascinating, witty and surprising look at the history of the world told through its borders.
