Sociability and its enemies : German political theory after 1945 by Jakob Norberg( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sociability and Its Enemies contributes both to contemporary studies of political theory and to discourse on postwar Germany by reconstructing the arguments concerning the nature and value of sociability as a form of interaction and interconnection particular to modern bourgeois society. Jakob Norberg argues that the writings of Hannah Arendt, Jürgen Habermas, Carl Schmitt, and the historian Reinhart Koselleck present conflicting responses to a hitherto neglected question or point of contention: whether bourgeois sociability should serve as a therapeutic practice and politically relevant ideal for postwar Germany. The book sheds light on previously neglected historical and conceptual connections among political theorists, and it enriches established narratives of postwar intellectual history."--Publisher's description
Engagement Konzepte von Gegenwart und Gegenwartsliteratur( )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodor W. Adorno hat in seinem Radiovortrag »Engagement oder künstlerische Autonomie?« (1962) gezeigt, dass die im Titel aufgeworfene Frage keine starre Antithese ist. Literarische Texte, die sich einseitig als (politisch) engagiert verstehen, verkennen den Autonomiestatus jeder künstlerischen Äußerung. Umgekehrt ist eine Literatur, die sich einseitig für autonom erklärt, blind für den eigenen Gesellschaftsbezug und den kontrafaktischen Einspruch, der aufgrund der bloßen Existenz literarischer Texte als Literatur immer schon nahegelegt wird. Der Band nimmt das Spannungsfeld, das durch den Engagementbegriff und durch den Gegenwartsbezug von Literatur konstituiert wird, historisch und systematisch in den Blick. Das Spektrum reicht von Konzepten der Zeitdichtung im 19. Jahrhundert über literarische Modelle des 20. Jahrhunderts bis zu ästhetischen Positionierungen in der unmittelbaren Gegenwart.; In his radio lecture "Commitment" Theodor W. Adorno showed that the question of commitment versus artistic autonomy is not a rigid antithesis. Literary texts that are intended to be purely partisan and (politically) committed fail to recognise the autonomous status of every artistic utterance. Conversely, a literature that claims to be autonomous is blind to its own relation to society and to the counterfactual objection that has always suggested itself by virtue of the mere existence of literary texts as literature.The volume examines, from a historic and systematic perspective, the antagonistic tension that emerges through the concept of commitment and the present-day relevance of literature. The topics range from concepts of "Zeitdichtung" in the 19thcentury to 20th-century literary models and aesthetic positioning of the present day
Untying the Mother Tongue On Language, Affect, and the Inconscious : Conference by ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry( )

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

The conference Untying the Mother Tongue intends to re-think affective and cognitive attachments to language by deconstructing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. If traditional constructions of a monolingual speaker, a pure "mother tongue" reveal the ideology of the European nation-state, then today's celebration of multilingual competencies simply reflects the rise of global capitalism and its demand for transnational labor markets. French poststructuralist thought has problematized the notion of a "mother tongue" by dividing it into two discrete elements-the "maternal" and the "linguistic"--And by exposing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. Can something be salvaged of the notion of a mother tongue? What are the remains, traces, or vestiges of a language no longer directly tied to the mother yet resounding with a maternal echo and at the same time manifesting itself as a primary idiom with respect to its affective and aesthetic dimensions? This "residual notion" of a mother tongue supposes that language is indeed a basic human need (like food, shelter, or clothing), since it provides an indispensible access to a symbolic dimension shaping affectivity and knowledge
