Wissensformen und Wissensnormen des Zusammenlebens Literatur, Kultur, Geschichte, Medien by Ottmar Ette( )

8 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: 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

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.

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

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 214 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

TransArea Eine literarische Globalisierungsgeschichte by Ottmar Ette( )

7 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume takes the view that globalization is not a recent phenomenon, but instead an enduring process, marked by four periods of accelerated change. The Early Modern Period in European historiography is linked to our present experience of globalization by way of the diverse global trends that took place during the Age of Modernity. The literatures of the world provide a visceral understanding of that which can only be understood from the perspectives offered by multiple logics' namely, the life of our planet and its inhabitants. The wisdom of literature cannot be replaced by any other kind of knowledge: it is life's wisdom about life. Ottmar Ette, Universität Potsdam
