Peter Wagner Modernity

5273.94 руб.
We live in a modern age, but what does ‘modern’ mean and how can a reflection on ‘modernity’ help us to understand the world today? These are the questions that Peter Wagner sets out to answer in this concise and accessible book. Wagner begins by returning to the question of modernity's Western origins and its claims to open up a new and better era in the history of humanity. Modernity's claims and expectations have become more prevalent and widely shared, but in the course of their realization and diffusion they have also been radically transformed. In an acute and engaging analysis, Wagner examines the following key issues among others: – Modernity was based on the hope for freedom and reason, but it created the institutions of contemporary capitalism and democracy. How does the freedom of the citizen relate to the freedom of the buyer and seller today? And what does disaffection with capitalism and democracy entail for the sustainability of modernity? – Rather than a single model of modernity, there is now a plurality of forms of modern socio-political organisation. What does this entail for our idea of progress and our hope that the future world can be better than the present one? – All nuance and broadening notwithstanding, our concept of modernity is in some way inextricably tied to the history of Europe and the West. How can we compare different forms of modernity in a 'symmetric', non-biased or non-Eurocentric way? How can we develop a world-sociology of modernity?

Patrick Saint-Dizier Musical Rhetoric. Foundations and Annotation Schemes

6257.86 руб.
Discourse analysis and rhetoric are very much developed in communication, linguistics, cognitive science and artificial intelligence. Besides theoretical investigations, discourse analysis is central in a number of application areas such as dialogue and negotiation, the semantic web, question answering or authoring systems. Music is also a natural language, more abstract and mathematical, which follows very strict construction principles. However, there is very limited and no recent literature on Music Discourse analysis using computational principles. This book aims at developing a central issue in musical discourse: modeling rhetoric and argumentation. It also contributes to the development of high-level multimedia annotation schemes for non-verbal communication.

Shakespeare William Julius Caesar

333 руб.
Julius Caesar is among the best of Shakespeare's historical and political plays. Dealing with events surrounding the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C., the drama vividly illustrates the ways in which power and corruption are linked. The cry 'Peace, freedom and liberty!' is used to exculpate brutal realities, while personal ambitions taint public actions. Rich in characterisation and replete with eloquent rhetoric, Julius Caesar remains engrossing and topical: a play for today. Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

Бауман Зигмунт Актуальность холокоста

504 руб.
В ряду исследователей Холокоста - уникально страшной трагедии ХХ века - Зигмунт Бауман занял особое место. Крупнейший социолог Европы, Бауман отказался свести Холокост к "немецкой вине" и "катастрофе евреев", или (к несомненной для него) преступности гитлеризма. Уже одно это вызвало мировой скандал. Бауман вскрывает механику Холокоста внутри самой modernity - нашей современной цивилизации. В условиях технократического общества, где средства подменяют ценности и цели, где "эффективные менеджеры" абстрагируются от социальной цены реформ и управленческих действий. Холокост - не история, он актуален и может вернуться в мир в новом образе. Концепция Баумана обосновывает связь между политической теорией и политической этикой.

An expansive, yet succinct, analysis of the Philosophy of Religion – from metaphysics through theology. Organized into two sections, the text first examines truths concerning what is possible and what is necessary. These chapters lay the foundation for the book’s second part – the search for a metaphysical framework that permits the possibility of an ultimate explanation that is correct and complete. A cutting-edge scholarly work which engages with the traditional metaphysician’s quest for a true ultimate explanation of the most general features of the world we inhabit Develops an original view concerning the epistemology and metaphysics of modality, or truths concerning what is possible or necessary Applies this framework to a re-examination of the cosmological argument for theism Defends a novel version of the Leibnizian cosmological argument

Motti Regev Pop-Rock Music. Aesthetic Cosmopolitanism in Late Modernity

5273.94 руб.
Pop music and rock music are often treated as separate genres but the distinction has always been blurred. Motti Regev argues that pop-rock is best understood as a single musical form defined by the use of electric and electronic instruments, amplification and related techniques. The history of pop-rock extends from the emergence of rock'n'roll in the 1950s to a variety of contemporary fashions and trends – rock, punk, soul, funk, techno, hip hop, indie, metal, pop and many more. This book offers a highly original account of the emergence of pop-rock music as a global phenomenon in which Anglo-American and many other national and ethnic variants interact in complex ways. Pop-rock is analysed as a prime instance of 'aesthetic cosmopolitanism' – that is, the gradual formation, in late modernity, of world culture as a single interconnected entity in which different social groupings around the world increasingly share common ground in their aesthetic perceptions, expressive forms and cultural practices. Drawing on a wide array of examples, this path-breaking book will be of great interest to students and scholars in cultural sociology, media and cultural studies as well as the study of popular music.
John Hall R. Apocalypse. From Antiquity to the Empire of Modernity John Hall R. Apocalypse. From Antiquity to the Empire of Modernity Новинка

John Hall R. Apocalypse. From Antiquity to the Empire of Modernity

5273.94 руб.
Winner of the American Sociological Association's 'Distinguished Book Award' in the Religion category. For most of us, «Apocalypse» suggests the cataclysmic end of the world. Yet in Greek «apocalypse» means «revelation,» and the real subject of the Book of Revelation is how the sacred arises in history at a moment of crisis and destiny. With origins in ancient religions, the apocalyptic has been a transformative force from the time of the Crusades, through the Reformation, the French Revolution and modern communism, all the way to the present day «Islamic Jihad» and «War on Terror.» In Apocalypse, John R. Hall explores the significance of apocalyptic movements and the role they have played in the rise of the West and «The Empire of Modernity.» This brilliant cross-disciplinary study offers a novel basis for rethinking our social order and its ambivalent relations to sacred history. Apocalypse will attract general readers seeking new understandings of the world in challenging times. Scholars and students will find a compelling synthesis that draws them into conversation with others interested in religion, theology, culture, philosophy, and phenomenology, as well as sociology, social theory, western civilization, and world history.

Patrick Curry Defending Middle-earth: Tolkien: Myth and Modernity

345.44 руб.
A spirited defence of Tolkien’s mythological creation and its increasing relevance for the real world.Acclaimed by the largest readers’ survey ever conducted as ‘the greatest book of the century’, J.R.R.Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings has cast the spell of its storytelling for over 40 years and continues to enthral new generations of readers. Yet it has also been widely labelled as reactionary and escapist by hostile critics.Patrick Curry’s book shows just how mistaken they are. He reveals Tolkien’s profound and subtle advocacy of community, ecology and spiritual values against the destructive forces of runaway modernity. Tolkien’s remedy, and the project implicit in his literary mythology, is a re-enchantment of the world. In helping us to realize that living nature, including humanity, is sacred, his writings draw on ancient magical mythology, but at the same time resonate closely with the ideas of contemprary radical ecology.Quoting extensively from Tolkien’s works, Patrick Curry argues that Tolkien addresses hard global realities and widely justified fears. In this way, his story has transcended its English roots to achieve universal relevance, and his imaginary world gives people everywhere hope for the future of the real world.

Worldwide, human lives are rapidly improving. Education, health-care, technology, and political participation are becoming ever more universal, empowering human beings everywhere to enjoy security, economic sufficiency, equal citizenship, and a life in dignity. To be sure, there are some specially difficult areas disfavoured by climate, geography, local diseases, unenlightened cultures or political tyranny. Here progress is slow, and there may be set-backs. But the affluent states and many international organizations are working steadily to extend the blessings of modernity through trade and generous development assistance, and it won't be long until the last pockets of severe oppression and poverty are gone. Heavily promoted by Western governments and media, this comforting view of the world is widely shared, at least among the affluent. Pogge's new book presents an alternative view: Poverty and oppression persist on a massive scale; political and economic inequalities are rising dramatically both intra-nationally and globally. The affluent states and the international organizations they control knowingly contribute greatly to these evils – selfishly promoting rules and policies harmful to the poor while hypocritically pretending to set and promote ambitious development goals. Pogge's case studies include the $1/day poverty measurement exercise, the cosmetic statistics behind the first Millennium Development Goal, the War on Terror, and the proposed relaxation of the constraints on humanitarian intervention. A powerful moral analysis that shows what Western states would do if they really cared about the values they profess.

In his inimitably entertaining and witty style, he takes apart famous quotations and shows how you too can write like Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde or John Lennon.

Khan Hasan-Udin International Style. Modernist Architrcture from 1925 to 1965

1049 руб.
The years from 1925 to 1965 were marked by an optimistic belief that the new technologies of industrialization, spread by applying rational ideas to architecture and urbanism, would produce a qualitatively better world. This "Project of Modernity" was concerned with social agenda as well as form, an aspect that is now sometimes forgotten. The expressions of modern architecture were characterized by a number of different twentieth-century movements, dominated by the International Style. In the 1920s several strands of modernism - Expressionism, Futurism, Functionalism, to name only three of the "isms" - converged into an approach to architecture that is termed internationalist. It was an approach that was global not only in its aspirations and its concerns but also in the presentation of its architecture.

Francisco Josе de Goya y Lucientes, one of Spain's most revered and controversial painters, is known for his intense, chilling, and sometimes grotesque paintings depicting the injustice of society with brutal sincerity. A court painter to the Spanish crown, he captured, through his works, a snapshot of life in Spain in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Coming at the tail end of the Old Masters period, Goya, with his audacious, subversie, and highly influential works, can be considered the first painter of the modern era. His influence can be seen in the works of artists as varied as Picasso and Francis Bacon.

Кобрин Кирилл Рафаилович Modernite в избранных сюжетах. Некоторые случаи частного и общественного сознания XIX-XX веков

416 руб.
Книга "Modernite в избранных сюжетах" посвящена разным сюжетам - и одной теме. Эта тема - "современность", исторический период, пересоздавший наш мир, перевернувший его гораздо последовательнее, нежели любые изменения, которые случились в мире с момента появления христианства. В русской обыденной речи "современное" значит то, что происходит сейчас и противостоит прошлому, "истории". Однако во французском и английском языках это понятие имеет свои хронологические рамки и свое собственное содержание. Так что речь в книге идет не о "современности", а о modernite, понятии, введенном Шарлем Бодлером. Modernite, modernity - это Новое и Новейшее время, эпоха промышленного производства, технологических революций, свободного рынка, массового общества и массовых идеологий. Автора книги интересует, как было устроено сознание некоторых людей, создавших эту эпоху и участвовавших в ее развитии - или противостоявших ей. Книга адресована широкому кругу читателей, имеющих вкус к исторической рефлексии.

Соломон Волков — историк культуры, музыковед, писатель; автор книг “Большой театр. Культура и политика. Новая история”, “История культуры Санкт-Петербурга с основания до наших дней”, “История русской культуры в царствование Романовых. 1613–1917”, “История русской культуры ХХ века. От Льва Толстого до Александра Солженицына”, “Шостакович и Сталин: художник и царь”. Неизменный интерес вызывают его книги-диалоги с известными людьми: “Диалоги с Иосифом Бродским”, “Диалоги с Евгением Евтушенко”, “Диалоги с Владимиром Спиваковым”, “Свидетельство. Воспоминания Дмитрия Шостаковича, записанные Соломоном Волковым”, “Страсти по Чайковскому. Разговоры с Джорджем Баланчиным” и другие. Москва / Modern Moscow — это опыт осмысления “московского” вклада в отечественную и мировую культуру. В исторических очерках Соломон Волков рассказывает о ключевых фигурах и важных событиях истории московской культуры ХХ века: создание МХТ в 1898 году и Чехов-драматург, Булгаков и переменчивое отношение к нему Сталина, приезд в Москву Анри Матисса и общество “Бубновый валет”, Эйзенштейн и “будущее звуковой фильмы”; Шостакович и Евтушенко, Рихтер и Гилельс, Венедикт Ерофеев и Дмитрий Александрович Пригов. Главная тема диалогов в этой книге — культурный облик столицы ХХI века. Собеседниками Волкова стали: директор ГМИИ имени А.С. Пушкина Марина Лошак, литературный критик Галина Юзефович, директор Государственного музея истории российской литературы имени В.И. Даля Дмитрий Бак, художественный руководитель театра “Геликон-опера” Дмитрий Бертман, главный редактор журнала “Искусство кино” Антон Долин, ректор ГИТИСа Григорий Заславский. Новая Москва... Какое содержание вкладываю я в это понятие? В культурологии широко применяется термин modernity. Modernity — это современность и актуальность, это история, которая рождается у нас на глазах, здесь и сейчас. Наша городская жизнь, находясь в динамическом развитии, создает ситуацию постоянного обновления: в борьбе между прошлым и настоящим рождается будущее. Modernity включает внешне противоположные импульсы: текучесть, спонтанность, революционность, тягу к коллективизму — и фетишизм, склонность к индивидуализму, затворничеству, мироощущение “подпольного человека”. Варясь в этом котле противоречий, мы можем быть глубоко несчастны, но нам никогда не будет скучно. Это и есть мироощущение жителей мегаметрополисов, к каковым принадлежит современная Москва. Соломон Волков
