Europa - geeint durch Werte? : die europäische Wertedebatte auf dem Prüfstand der Geschichte : [internationale Konferenz "Was ist europäisch? Die Vielfalt von Gedächtnissen oder die Eindeutigkeit von europäischen Werten", November 2006 in Wien]( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in German and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sind es Geschichte und Kultur, die Europa zur Einheit bestimmen? Zieht Europa in der globalen Standortkonkurrenz die alte Karte der "kulturellen Errungenschaft" universeller Werte? Was als Wirtschaftsunion gegründet wurde, wird heute zunehmend als Wertegemeinschaft definiert. Diese Suche nach einem europäischen Wesen entwickelt Züge einer "Identitätspolitik", die an nationalistische Inklusions- und Exklusionsdynamiken erinnert und anzuknüpfen erlaubt. Das neue Sinnbedürfnis überblendet nicht nur die Pluralität europäischer Erfahrungs- und Erinnerungs(ge)schichten, es zeugt zugleich von der als Druck wahrgenommenen Globalisierung. Mit Beiträgen von Michael Böhler, Michael Borgolte, Moritz Csáky, Johannes Feichtinger, Georg Kreis, Adolf Muschg, Sabine Offe, Johannes Pollak, Dragan Prole, Michael Rössner, Shingo Shimada und Moshe Zuckermann
Understanding multiculturalism : the Habsburg Central European experience( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiculturalism has long been linked to calls for tolerance of cultural diversity, but today many observers are subjecting the concept to close scrutiny. After the political upheavals of 1968, the commitment to multiculturalism was perceived as a liberal manifesto, but in the post-9/11 era, it is under attack for its relativizing, particularist, and essentializing implications. The essays in this collection offer a nuanced analysis of the multifaceted cultural experience of Central Europe under the late Habsburg monarchy and beyond. The authors examine how culturally coded social spaces can be described and understood historically without adopting categories formerly employed to justify the definition and separation of groups into nations, ethnicities, or homogeneous cultures. As we consider the issues of multiculturalism today, this volume offers new approaches to understanding multiculturalism in Central Europe freed of the effects of politically exploited concepts of social spaces.--
Die Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg : Transformationsprozesse im Spannungsfeld von Abgrenzung und Annäherung by Johannes Feichtinger( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Kalten Krieg wurde die Systemkonkurrenz zwischen Ost und West auch im Feld der Wissenschaften ausgetragen. Der vorliegende Band thematisiert Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa diesseits und jenseits des Eisernen Vorhangs in der Zeit des frühen Kalten Krieges (und fallweise darüber hinaus). Vertreten sind Akademien in den sozialistischen Staaten (die Slowenische Akademie der Wissenschaften und Künste, die Akademie der Volksrepublik Rumänien, die Ungarische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Polnische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Tschechoslowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften und die Slowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften), Akademien der Wissenschaften im geteilten Deutschland (die Deutsche Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin, die Sächsische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften und schließlich die Leopoldina in Halle/Saale als gesamtdeutsche Akademie der Naturforscher) sowie die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften. Der vorliegende Band ermöglicht erstmals einen vergleichenden Blick auf Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg. Die übergreifende Fragestellung richtet sich zum einen auf Kontinuitäten und Zäsuren innerhalb der Akademien, zum anderen auf Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen ‚westlichem' und sozialistischem Akademiemodell. Die Akademien sozialistischen Typs wurden bald zu groß angelegten Forschungsträgern ausgebaut, während die ,westlichen' Akademien reine Gelehrtengesellschaften blieben. Eine Position zwischen diesen beiden Modellen nimmt die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften ein. In diesem Band werden vielfach erstmals Forschungsergebnisse zu ostmitteleuropäischen Akademien im Kalten Krieg in einer westeuropäischen Sprache zugänglich gemacht. Mit dem innovativen Konzept einer transnational vergleichenden Perspektive wird wissenschaftliches Neuland erschlossen, von dem Impulse für künftige Forschungen ausgehen sollen. --Publisher's website
Deploying Orientalism in culture and history : from Germany to Central and Eastern Europe by John Walker( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the cultural, philosophical, political, and scholarly uses of ""orientalism"" in the German-speaking and Central and Eastern European worlds from the late eighteenth century to the present day
The worlds of positivism : a global intellectual history, 1770-1930 by Jan Surman( )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first to trace the origins and significance of positivism on a global scale. Taking their cues from Auguste Comte and John Stuart Mill, positivists pioneered a universal, experience-based culture of scientific inquiry for studying nature and society?a new science that would enlighten all of humankind. Positivists envisaged one world united by science, but their efforts spawned many. Uncovering these worlds of positivism, the volume ranges from India, the Ottoman Empire, and the Iberian Peninsula to Central Europe, Russia, and Brazil, examining positivism?s impact as one of the most far-reaching intellectual movements of the modern world. Positivists reinvented science, claiming it to be distinct from and superior to the humanities. They predicated political governance on their refashioned science of society, and as political activists, they sought and often failed to reconcile their universalism with the values of multiculturalism. Providing a genealogy of scientific governance that is sorely needed in an age of post-truth politics, this volume breaks new ground in the fields of intellectual and global history, the history of science, and philosophy
Cubism, constructivism, form art by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere (Vienna)( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 14th Vienna Secession exhibition in 1902 to the development of Constructivism in the 1920s, art in Austria- Hungary underwent a seismic change that challenged preconceptions, and broke the rules to shake up European Art. Tracing the evolution of art during this time period, this book makes valuable connections between the seemingly disparate Formkunst of Vienna, Cubism in Prague, and Hungarian Constructivism. Focusing on the works of artists such as Josef Hoffmann, Gustav Klimt, Josef Capek, Koloman Moser, Egon Schiele, Frantis Kupka, Lajos Kassa, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and drawing from the latest scholarly research, this book presents a fundamental reinterpretation of turn-of-the-century art as it flourished in the Habsburg Empire
Experimental biology in the Vienna Prater : on the history of the Institute for Experimental Biology 1902 to 1945( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Institute for Experimental Biology (Biologische Versuchsanstalt, or BVA) in the Vienna Prater was one of the world's leading research insitutes for experimental biology until the 'Anschluss' of Austria in 1938. The Austrian Academy of Sciences, which was given the BVA in 1914, organised several events in 2014 and 2015 to commemorate Austria's first privately-funded research institute and its groundbearking findings. This catalogue documents the turbulent history of this unique institute and its return to collective memory.'
The Academy of Sciences in Vienna 1938 to 1945( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2013, the Academy is using the 75th anniversary of the "Anschluss" in March 1938 as an occasion to present an exhibition and to publish a catalog investigating the reactions of the Academy to the Nazi power takeover, the Academy's involvement in the Nazi domination apparatus, and the impact this had on the postwar period. New research findings allow a profound insight into the personnel and institutional structure of the Academy as well as its scientific focus during the Nazi era. The "Anschluss" of Austria by the National Socialist German Reich in March 1938 marked a profound turning point for the Academy of Sciences in Vienna. With the Nazis' seizure of power, Academy members and staff members were forced to leave for political and "racial" reasons. They were persecuted and expelled; they died in Nazi concentration camps. Organizations like the Institute for Radium Research, the Vivarium, and the Phonogram Archive lost their key research personnel; worldwide pioneering research programs and international research collaborations were broken off. Under the Academy's new Nazi leadership, the learned society's autonomy was reduced and research projects in the support of Nazi ideology were carried out. The year 1945 was not a "zero hour." In addition to breaks, there were also continuities in the research institutes as well as the association of scholars. In dealing with Nazism, the Academy took an ambivalent stance: In the early postwar period, the membership of former Nazis was provisionally suspended. A few years later - pursuant to the Amnesty Law of 1948 - practically all former Nazi party members, even high-ranking officials, were re-admitted as members

Wissenschaft als reflexives Projekt : von Bolzano über Freud zu Kelsen - Österreichische Wissenschaftsgeschichte 1848-1938 by Johannes Feichtinger( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch rückt die Wissenschaftsgeschichte Österreichs in ein neues Licht. Ausgehend vom Spannungsfeld "Wissenschaft versus Politik" stellt es die zentralen Akteure, Strukturen und Diskurse in den Mittelpunkt. Die Analyse eines Jahrhunderts Wissenschaftsgeschichte konzentriert sich auf die Herausbildung eines relativ autonomen Wissenschaftshandelns unter den plurikulturellen Verhältnissen Zentraleuropas sowie auf seine Wegbereiter (Bolzano, Mach und Riegl) und wichtigsten Verfechter (Freud, Wittgenstein, Neurath, Kelsen). Johannes Feichtinger zeigt, wie jenseits von Hetero- und Autonomie und abseits des methodologischen Nationalismus Identitätsmodelle entstanden sind, die noch für das Globaleuropa des 21. Jahrhunderts relevant sein können
