Imperial Expectations and Realities

This volume explores how imperial powers established and expanded their empires through decisions that were often based on exaggerated expectations and wishful thinking, rather than on reasoned and scientific policies. It explores these exaggerations through the concepts of El Dorado, utopias and dystopias - undertakings based on irrational perceived values - in case studies from across the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, and incorporates imperial traditions including Scottish, British, French, German, Italian and American. Various colonial spaces are considered, from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas, and in doing so, the contributors offer new i...

Historical Legacies and the Radical Right in Post-Cold War Central and Eastern Europe

The transformation process in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) after 1989 is often clothed in terms of historical and geographical categories, either as a 'return of history' or as a 'return to Europe', or both. Either way, the radical right in CEE claims a prominent place in this politics of return. Studies of the radical right echo the more general concern, in analyses of the region, with historical analogies and the role of legacies. Sometimes parallels are discovered between the post-1989 radical right and interwar fascism. They imply a 'Weimarization' of the transformation countries and the return of the pre-socialist, ultranationalist, or even fascist past—the 'return of history'. An...

Globalization and the Future of German

Is the world en route to becoming a linguistic colony of the United States? Or is this dramatic view an exaggeration, and there is no danger to linguistic diversity at all? The German language is at the center of an intensive debate on this issue. Its position in the world is under increasing pressure due to the growing importance of (American) English as the language of globalization. The articles in this volume deal with the national and international position of German in relation to English, language policies, the future of German as a language of science, German in the USA, and the intellectual and aesthetic dimensions of encountering a foreign language. They present critical assessments addressing the dangers for the future of languages other than English, as well as positions which perceive the growing importance of English as a challenge and resource rather than as a threat.

"Escape to Life"

After 1933, New York City gave shelter to many leading German and German-Jewish intellectuals. Stripped of their German citizenship by the Nazi-regime, these public figures either stayed in the New York area or moved on to California and other places. This compendium, adopting the title of a famous volume published by Klaus and Erika Mann in 1939, explores the impact the US, and NYC in particular, had on these authors as well as the influence they in turn exerted on US intellectual life. Moreover, it addresses the transformations that took place in the exiled intellectuals’ thinking when it was translated into another language and addressed to an American audience. Among the individuals pr...

Jenseits des Unbehagens

Dieses Buch rekonstruiert den ebenso populären wie ungeklärten Inbegriff psychoanalytischer Kulturtheorie: Sublimierung. Lektüren zu Goethe, Schopenhauer und Nietzsche, der »Sublimierung« als Schlüsselkonzept genealogischer Zivilisationstheorie etabliert, bereiten das Studium zu Freud vor: Zunächst konzipiert als Ideal der Befreiung von aller Autorität, meint Sublimierung später zunehmend Unterdrückung der Triebe; am Ende formuliert Freud die Apologie des »Leviathan« im kalten Licht psychologischen Expertenwissens. Weiterhin erörtert der Autor exemplarisch die Rezeption der klassischen Sublimierungslehre durch Thomas Mann, Adorno und Lacan. Sublimierung wird denkbar jenseits von erzwungenem Triebschicksal und Weltabkehr - als via regia zur Erschließung der »wirklichen Welt« und ihres Freiheitspotentials.
