Most widely held works by Hans Christian Günther
Artists and intellectuals and the requests of power by Hans Christian Günther( )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A much discussed question in classical studies is the comparison between the situation of poets in Augustan Rome and that of artists and intellectuals in the totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century. As instructive as this question proves to be for an understanding of the relation between the freedom of art and thinking on the one hand and power on the other, it also reveals the insufficiency of our present grasp of this crucial articulation of our humanity. This volume offers a multidisciplinary and comparative approach to the problem, complementing the historical perspective with a regard on Eastern traditions. It thus explores tentative paths for future research on an issue of critical importance for the shaping of the global world."--BOOK JACKET

The present volume provides a comprehensive guide to one of the most difficult authors of classical antiquity. All the major aspects of Propertius' work, its themes, the poetical technique, its sources and models, as well as the history of Propertian scholarship and the vexed problems of textual criticism, are dealt with in contributions by Joan Booth, James Butrica, Francis Cairns, Elaine Fantham, Paolo Fedeli, Adrian Hollis, Peter Knox, Robert Maltby, Tobias Reinhardt and Richard Tarrant; due space is also given to the reception of the author from antiquity and the renaissance (Simona Gavinelli) up to the modern age (Bernhard Zimmermann). At the centre stands an interpretation of the four transmitted books by Gesine Manuwaldt, Hans-Peter Syndikus, John Kevin Newman and Hans-Christian Günther

Die Übersetzungen der Elementatio Theologica des Proklos und ihre Bedeutung für den Proklostext by Hans Christian Günther( )

10 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book presents for the first time a detailed study of selected passages of the most important Georgian translation of a text of Greek philosophy: the translation of Proklos' Elementatio Theologica by the most eminent philosopher of the Georgian middle ages, Ioane Petrizi, who not only translated Proklos' text, but also provided it with an extensive commentary. The book discusses the paragraphs which are also extant in an Arabic translation of the early 9th century. The main scope of the book is to establish the relevance of the Georgian and Arabic translations for the history of the constitution of the text, but it provides also important insights in Petrizi's method of translation and the philosophical significance of his commentary

Political poetry across the centuries by Internationales Seminar Deutsch-Italienischer Studien( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume dedicates itself to the rather neglected field of political poetry and offers a broad perspective across the centuries from Plato until the post-war period. The first part describes the social function of poetry in Plato, his reception in Heidegger and in Ezra Pound's poetry. A contribution on Milton complements this with a great poet's reflection on central political questions. The second part, pre 20th century, is rounded off by two rulers from the edges of Europe or Asia who left their mark both on history and on the literary history of their country: the Georgian king Teimuraz I and the Persian ruler Shah Ismail. This theme is continued in the last contribution dedicated to an outstanding combination of political and poetic talent from recent history, Mao Zedong. Two other contributions refer to the epoch of WWI, Europe's big cultural caesura, and they dedicate themselves to two eminently influential figures, Stefan George and Vladimir Mayakowsky."--

Bossuet : artist, intellectual and man of politics by Paul Richard Blum( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques Bénigne Bossuet (1627-1704) provides the historical context of philosophers like Descartes who appear to be timeless. He exposed the political philosophy, the epistemology, the philosophy of history and the theology of his time against the prejudice that thinkers have to be solipsistic. Bossuet reconciled rationality and Biblical authority when the Enlightenment threatened to divorce them. This is true for his political philosophy and for his philosophical psychology. Knowing worldly power helps fathom the divine order, and knowing the human intellect fosters philosophical piety towards God.0Paul Richard Blum is T.J. Higgins, S.J., Chair in Philosophy at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, USA. He studied philosophy in Germany and Italy and taught in Germany, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Besides Renaissance philosophy he specializes in early modern scholasticism.0Hans-Christian Günther is professor for classics at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. He has widely published on Greek and Roman philosophy and literature, Byzantine and modern Greek studies. Recently he has been more and more interested in intercultural studies, ethics and international politics
