John Gay's The Beggar's Opera, 1728-2004 : adaptations and re-writings( )

7 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Richard Steele remarked that "the greatest Evils in human Society are such as no Law can come at", he was not able to forsee the spectacular success of John Gay's satire of society, the administration of law and crime, politics, the Italian opera and other topics. Gay's The Beggar's Opera, with its mixture of witty dialogue and popular songs, was imitated by 18th century writers, criticized by those on the seats of power, but remained a favourite of the English theatre public ever since. With N. Playfair's 1920 revival and B. Brecht's and K. Weill's 1928 Dreigroschenoper, Gay'
Empathy and its limits by Aleida Assmann( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empathy has been rediscovered and reshaped since the year 2000 as a concept with great interdisciplinary potential in neuroscience, socio-biology, psychology and the humanities. It is generally acknowledged as a vital emotional and social resource in a world faced with the challenges of globalization and the limitations of an endangered ecosystem. Empathy might be a unique human endowment, but we still know very little about the circumstances under which it is aroused or blocked. With its focus on the 'limits of empathy', this book therefore analyzes not only the cultural contexts that account for the generating and fostering of empathy, but also focuses on its limits and the mechanisms that lead to its blocking. Complementary to the current research in the natural sciences that celebrates the quintessential human capacity for empathy, this study will look more closely into the precarious status of empathy, its unreliability and intentional withdrawal

From popular Goethe to global pop : the idea of the West between memory and (dis)empowerment by Ines Detmers( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay collection embarks on a historical voyage into the idea of the West, while contextualising its relevance to the contemporary discourses on cultural difference. Although the idea of the West predates both colonial and Orientalist projects, it has been radically reshaped by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the end of the Cold War and the 9/11 attacks. In the wake of these developments, this collection attends to the nebulous paradigm shifts that account for a reconfiguration of the conventional coordinates of the West (West vs. Rest, Orient vs. Occident). The essays featured in th
Rendezvous mit dem Realen : die Spur des Traumas in den Künsten by Aleida Assmann( )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Begriff des Traumas ist mittlerweile zu einem festen Bestandteil unserer Alltagssprache geworden. Während Medizin, Psychologie und Hirnforschung die Schäden des Traumas immer exakter beschreiben, ist es die Aufgabe der Künste, die Erfahrungsperspektive des Traumas in die Gesellschaft hinein zu vermitteln. Da das Trauma jedoch gemeinhin als undarstellbar gilt, sind damit ganz neue Herausforderungen verbunden. Dieser Band dokumentiert eine enge Zusammenarbeit verschiedener Disziplinen und verfolgt zum ersten Mal die Spur des Traumas vor allem in visuellen Medien und kulturellen Praktiken
