Views of the Cordilleras and monuments of the indigenous peoples of the Americas : a critical edition by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in German and English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1799, Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland set out to determine whether the Orinoco River connected with the Amazon. But what started as a trip to investigate a relatively minor geographical controversy became the basis of a five-year exploration throughout South America, Mexico, and Cuba. The discoveries amassed by von Humboldt and Bonpland were staggering, and much of today's knowledge of tropical zoology, botany, geography, and geology can be traced back to von Humboldt's numerous records of these expeditions. One of these accounts, Views of the Cordi
Political essay on the island of Cuba by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research Alexander von Humboldt amassed during his five-year trek through the Americas at the turn of the eighteenth to the 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

TransArea : a literary history of globalization by Ottmar Ette( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in German and English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ottmar Ette's TransArea proceeds from the thesis that globalization is not a recent phenomenon, but rather, a process of long duration that may be divided into four main phases of accelerated globalization. These phases connect our present, across the world's widely divergent modern eras, to the period of early modern history. Ette demonstrates how the literatures of the world make possible a tangible perception of that which constitutes Life, both of our planet and on our planet, which may only be understood through the application of multiple logics. There is no substitute for the knowledge of literature: it is the knowledge of life, from life. This English translation will be of great interest to English-speaking scholars in the fields of Global and Area Studies, Literary Studies, Cultural Studies, History, Political Science, and many more."--

Wissensformen und Wissensnormen des ZusammenLebens : Literatur - Kultur - Geschichte - Medien by Ottmar Ette( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the essays collected in this volume is to advance the discussion about "life knowledge" (Lebenswissen) and to point the way toward new horizons for current and future thinking and action in literary and cultural studies. This broad research field encompasses a wide range of elements: European, non-European, philological, and philosophical approaches; perspectives native to media history, narrative theory, and the aesthetics of literature; as well as transcultural and transdisciplinary methods. Clearly, "life knowledge" is a field of research whose forms and norms of knowledge remain to be more precisely elucidated. This volume is dedicated to meeting this intellectual challenge
