Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Hannover (Englisches Seminar Universität Hannover), course: Utopias of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: n the following paper I want to examine the relationship between Thomas More s Utopia and George Orwell s Nineteen Eighty-Four. As both these texts offer a wealth of material for interpretation, I want to concentrate mainly on emphasizing the similarities in the desc ription of the political and social systems. I will attempt to underline these very essential resemblances by examining how life in Utopia differs from life in Nineteen Eighty-Four for the individual social being.After reading Utopia for the first time It seemed to me an important question to examine the world of Utopia from a different angle, by comparing it to the opposite, politically charged Anti-Utopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.In comparing these texts I began to ask myself if Thomas More was actually well ahead of his time in constructing the world of Utopia. Taking Orwell s text into consideration, I felt that there was a striking similarity between the texts although they differed in their criticism and point of departure.What I want to explore in the following pages is to show how the political system of Utopia depends on an unyielding denial of human individuality, a denial that is an essential part of the ideology in Nineteen Eighty-Four. My main argument will be that Utopia is not the happy place it wants us to present, but a system of total control and oppression, very similar to Nineteen Eighty-Four. Although different in its overall impression, Utopia leaves a great deal of questions to the reader. The most striking one is, how the Utopia ns themselves evaluate the laws and rules of Utopia.Finally, I will attempt to emphasize the interrelationship and logical consequence of Anti-Utopia as a possible answer towards Utopian idealism.

Anselm's Proslogion SCM PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

St Anselm (1033-1109) was an Italian theologian and philosopher and the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093-1097. He is best known for his work, Proslogion, in which he defends the Church and sets out his philosophy and argument for the existence of God, now known as the Ontological Argument. OA is now a commonly studied subject at schools and universities, yet this critical, original treatise outlining the OA is often misunderstood by readers. Here in the Briefly text, the author guides the reader through Anselm's argument concerning existence and whether it is an attribute of God in the same way omnipotence, omniscience and benevolence are believed to be. As such the argument is an a priori argument. It does not rest on proving God's existence from the empirical realm but on showing that God must exist logically (or that God's non-existence is illogical).The main idea behind Anselm's argument is that epistemology (what we know) IS ontology (what there is); or, that if it is possible to conceive of X, then X must surely exist.

Introduction to Kant's Critique of Judgement EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Kant's third Critique, the Critique of Judgement, is regarded as one of the most influential books in the history of aesthetics. This book is designed as a reader's guide for students trying to work their way, step-by-step, through Kant's text. It is also a guide to the text-in-context in that it sets Kant's concepts, language and aims in the context of Kant's philosophy in general and the late eighteenth century. This is one of the first comprehensive introductions to Kant's Critique of Judgement. Not only does it include a detailed and full account of Kant's aesthetic theory (the beautiful, the sublime, genius and fine art), it incorporates an extended discussion of the 'Critique of Teleological Judgement', a treatment of Kant's overall conception of the text and its place in the wider critical system. Designed as an introduction, suitable for undergraduate and first--year postgraduate use, the book assumes no prior knowledge of Kant, or any other particular philosophy. As such, it could be used as an introduction to Kant in general from the point of view of the third Critique. Moreover, it stays with the historical Kant, avoiding 'updating' arguments that sound more like recent theories and including sections of the text that are sometimes neglected. In these ways, the book will be useful as a starting point for understanding Kant's relationship to the eighteenth century and his legacy throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The choice of text is the Pluhar translation in the Hackett edition. However, throughout, Douglas Burnham provides alternative translations of key terms and phrases, making the book independent of any particular translation of Kant's text. Features * A comprehensive and introductory level text * Useful for understanding Kant's critical system as a whole, and his historical influence * Includes: - translations of key words in brackets in the text - helpful summary boxes at the end of every section of every chapter - a glossary of key terms with definitions and alternative translations

Psychology, Religion, and Spirituality Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Designed to be a text for graduate and undergraduate studies, the purpose of this volume is to present a comprehensive introduction to the psychology of religion by observing the interface between psychology, religion, and spirituality. This book embraces the idea that natural and social science approaches to religion in psychology will be more effective if we are aware of religion perspectives on the issues under discussion. Religious perspectives can offer different views on topics of scientific theory and research, provide hypotheses for further explanation, and assist in the interpretation of scientific research findings. The reader will find that the following distinctive traits set this text apart from previous works in the area of the psychology of religion: Treatment of both theoretical issues and empirical research findings. Theoretical work and empirical research findings are both important in the psychology of religion. Unfortunately, the major psychology of religion texts do not present a balanced treatment of both approaches. The proposed book will integrate theoretical perspectives and empirical research on each topic. Practical application of concepts and research findings in the field. Most individuals who take undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology of religion hope to apply the studied material to their professional work. Regrettably, psychology of religion texts provide little practical treatment of applied issues and applied texts lack much background information provided by the psychology of religion field. This text provides examples of practical application throughout the book with several chapters at the end devoted to common practical situations relevant to the field. Attention to diversity issues. With some exceptions, textbooks in psychology of religion have given erratic treatment of world religions and cultural traditions beyond Western Christianity. This book aims where possible to integrate material from the main religions traditions that have been the focus of research by psychologists, especially Buddhism and Hinduism. Integration of exercises and questions with academic material. Most books in the area of the psychology of religion are not textbooks designed for use in the classroom. This book will be a modern text with boxed or appended case examples. Review questions, exercises and guides to further reading would be located at the end of each chapter.For use as a standalone text or in conjunction with a set of primary source readings, this imporant volume will be of great interest to professors and students of undergraduate and graduate classes on the psychology of religion or spirituality, as well as beginning seminary courses in spirituality and pastoral counseling.

Contemporary World Interiors_Yelavich Susan Wydawnictwo: Phaidon

WYDAWNICTWA ALBUMOWE > Design > Projektowanie wnętrz

ISBN: 9780714843360 Autor: Yelavich Susan     Rok wydania: 2007-06-04 Ilość stron: 512 Okładka: twarda Format: 254 x 300 mm "Contemporary World Interiors" takes the reader on a global tour of the best and most provocative interior design and architecture projects of the past 25 years, presenting the characteristic traits, influences, and enduring ideas of the contemporary interior. Rather than simply charting passing trends, author Susan Yelavich, a veteran New York-based curator and critic, describes some 450 specific projects by famous designers and promising newcomers alike, in countries as far-ranging as Russia, Israel, Chile, South Korea, and South Africa, as well as more familiar locales in Europe, Japan, and North America. A carefully edited selection of more than 1000 color photographs and plans illustrates the book, all reproduced at a generous format. The book is organized in 11 chapters by building type, with an introduction that presents an overview of the changes and ideas affecting interior architecture and design over the past three decades. As Yelavich points out, gone are the days when any one aesthetic language dominated, as the International Style did in the years after World War II. The new interior climate is inclusive, and once-alien styles flourish side by side. All kinds of interiors - from the once-minimal loft to the once-antiseptic hospital room - show evidence of a renewed interest in ornament, in craft and materiality, and in spatial complexities, often tempered by modernist, postmodernist, or deconstructivist influences. Each chapter opens with a brief introduction of dominant historical precedents and themes, then moves to detailed descriptions of 20 to 50 individual projects, noting the designer, project name, location, year of completion, and significant aspects of the interior, including its architecture, furnishings, color palette, and materials, as well as the designer's or client's aims. The book begins with chapters on residential interiors - houses, lofts, and apartments - following Yelavich's argument that domestic space has become the catalyst for entirely new ways of thinking about other kinds of interiors, from the office worker's cubicle to the nurse's station to the librarian's reading room. The book moves on to offices, civic spaces, religious spaces, cultural spaces, retail, restaurants, hotels, and therapeutic spaces. Within the chapters, readers will find familiar names and places, such as the Tate Modern in London by Herzog and de Meuron; Nobu restaurant in New York, by David Rockwell; and the thermal baths in Vals, by Peter Zumthor; as well as new discoveries, such as the Psychiatrist Hospital in Zeeland, the Netherlands, by the Dutch firm Mecanoo; the Korean Presbyterian Church in New York, by Greg Lynn; and the Joyce Department Store in Taipei, by the New York firm Tsao and McKown.
