History of Semiotics
Language: de
Pages: 386
Authors: Achim Eschbach, Jürgen Trabant
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 1983 - Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing

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.
On the Use and Abuse of History for Life
Language: de
Pages: 235
Authors: Friedrich Nietzsche
Categories: Philosophy
Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-05-08 - Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand

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.

Honour, Violence and Emotions in History
Language: en
Pages: 208
Authors: Carolyn Strange, Robert Cribb, Christopher E. Forth
Categories: History
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-04-10 - Publisher: A&C Black

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.
Teaching World History as Mystery
Language: en
Pages: 256
Authors: Jack Zevin, David Gerwin
Categories: Education
Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-12-07 - Publisher: Routledge

Offering a philosophy, methodology, and examples for history instruction that are active, imaginative, and provocative, this text presents a fully developed pedagogy based on problem-solving methods that promote reasoning and judgment and restore a sense of imagination and participation to classroom learning. It is designed to draw readers into the detective process that characterizes the work of professional historians and social scientists ─ sharing raw data, defining terms, building interpretations, and testing competing theories. An inquiry framework drives both the pedagogy and the choice of historical materials, with selections favoring the unsolved, controversial, and fragmented rather than the neatly wrapped up analysis of past events. Teaching World History as Mystery: Provides a balanced combination of interestingly arranged historical content, and clearly explained instructional strategies Features case studies of commonly and not so commonly taught topics within a typical world/global history curriculum using combinations of primary and secondary documents Discusses ways of dealing with ethical and moral issues in world history classrooms, drawing students into persisting questions of historical truth, bias, and judgment
