Die Macht am Mittelmeer Französische Träume von einem anderen Europa by Wolf Lepenies( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Plan schien perfekt: Präsident Sarkozy wollte seine südlichen Nachbarn für eine Mittelmeerunion gewinnen, um ein Gegengewicht zur deutschen Dominanz in Europa zu etablieren. Angela Merkel wusste das zu verhindern - eine zeitgeschichtliche Fußnote? Für Wolf Lepenies führt Frankreichs Traum von der Macht am Mittelmeer in die unbewussten Regionen der europäischen Geschichte, dorthin, wo die Komplexe und die wechselseitigen Ressentiments schlummern. Die deutsch-französische Rivalität greift den Gegensatz zwischen dem strengen Norden und dem lebenslustigen Süden, zwischen katholischer und protestantischer Welt auf, Ideen und Stereotypen, die bis ins 18. Jahrhundert zurückreichen und heute wieder politischen Diskussionsstoff liefern. Man muss sie kennen, wenn man verstehen will, wie sich in Europa Koalitionen und Frontlinien bilden. Wolf Lepenies bringt diese überraschend andere europäische Geschichte ans Tageslicht

A community of scholars : impressions of the Institute for Advanced Study by Serge J-F Levy( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This beautifully illustrated anthology celebrates eighty years of history and intellectual inquiry at the Institute for Advanced Study, one of the world's leading centers for theoretical research. Featuring essays by current and former members and faculty along with photographs by Serge J-F. Levy, this book captures the spirit of curiosity, freedom, and comradeship that is a hallmark of this unique community of scholars. Founded in 1930 in Princeton, New Jersey, the institute encourages and supports fundamental research in the sciences and humanities--the original, often speculative thinking that can transform how we understand our world. Albert Einstein was among the first in a long line of brilliant thinkers to be affiliated with the institute. They include Kurt Gdel, George Kennan, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Erwin Panofsky, Homer A. Thompson, John von Neumann, and Hermann Weyl. This volume offers an intimate portrait in words and images of a storied institution that might best be described as a true academic village. The personal reflections collected here - written by leading figures from across the disciplines - bring this exceptional academic institution and its history vibrantly to life. The contributors to this anthology are Sir Michael Atiyah, Chantal David, Freeman Dyson, Jane F. Fulcher, Peter Goddard, Barbara Kowalzig, Wolf Lepenies, Paul Moravec, Joan Wallach Scott, and David H. Weinberg
