Political essay on the island of Cuba by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research Alexander von Humboldt amassed during his five-year trek through the Americas in the early nineteenth-century proved foundational to the fields of botany, geography, and geology. But his visit to Cuba during this time yielded observations that extended far beyond the natural world. Political Essay on the Island of Cuba is a physical and cultural study of the island nation. In it, Humboldt denounces colonial slavery on both moral and economic grounds and stresses the vital importance of improving intercultural relations throughout the Americas. Humboldts most controversial book, Political Essay on the Island of Cuba was banned, censored, and willfully mistranslated to suppress Humboldts strong antislavery sentiments. It reemerges here, newly translated from the original two volume French edition, to introduce a new generation of readers to Humboldts astonishing multiplicity of scientific and philosophical perspectives. In their critical introduction, Vera Kutzinski and Ottmar Ette emphasize Humboldts rare ability to combine scientific rigor with a cosmopolitan consciousness and a deeply felt philosophical humanism. The result is a work on Cuba of historical import that will attract historians of science as well as cultural historians, political scientists, and literary scholars

Nanophilologie : literarische Kurz- und Kürzestformen in der Romania( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literarische Kurz- und Kürzestformen, deren Geschichte so alt ist wie die abendländische Literatur, haben im Verlauf der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts vor allem in den romanischen Literaturen der Welt eine ungeheuer dynamische Entwicklung erfahren. Mit vielen Seitenblicken auf andere europäische wie außereuropäische Literaturen verdeutlicht dies der Band Nanophilologie anhand der Analyse zahlreicher spanisch-, französisch- und portugiesischsprachiger Beispiele. Es gilt, die gerade in Deutschland augenfällig gewordene „Verspätung“ der Erforschung dieser Phänomene zu überwinden. Die Nanophilologie als sich konstituierender Bereich einer literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlich ausgerichteten Philologie untersucht die Mikrotextualität als spezifische Verdichtungsform, anhand deren Analyse Phänomene, Verfahren und Formprägungen von Literatur modellhaft herausgearbeitet werden können. Ziel ist es, die fundamentalen narrativen und semantischen Funktionsweisen von Literatur überhaupt zu beleuchten. Mit anderen Worten: Es geht der Nanophilologie ums Ganze
Writing-between-Worlds by Ottmar Ette( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book proposes that there is no better, no more complex way to access a community, a society, an era and its cultures than through literature. For millennia, literature from a wide variety of geocultural areas has gathered knowledge about life, about survival, and about living together, without either falling into discursive or disciplinary specializations or functioning as a regulatory mechanism for cultural knowledge
