The State of the Political challenges traditional interpretations of the political thought of Max Weber, Carl Schmitt, and Franz Neumann. Focusing on their adaptation of a German tradition of state-legal theory, the book offers a scholarly, contextualized account of the interrelationship between their political thought and practical political criticism. Dr Kelly criticizes the typical separation of these writers, and offers a substantial reinterpretation of modern German political thought in a period of profound transition, in particular the relationship between political theory and conceptual change. Alongside its focus on German political and juridical thought, the book contributes significantly to the history of European ideas, discussing parliamentarism and democracy, academic freedom and cultural criticism, political economy, patriotism, sovereignty and rationality, and the inter-relationships between law, the constitution and political representation.

This is a long overdue examination of a poet whose career offers a case study in the complexities facing Soviet writers in the Stalin era. Ol'ga Berggol'ts (1910-1975) was a prominent Russian Soviet poet, whose accounts of heroism in wartime Leningrad brought her fame. This volume addresses her position as a writer whose Party loyalties were frequently in conflict with the demands of artistic and personal integrity. Writers who pursued their careers under the restrictions of the Stalin era have been categorized as 'official' figures whose work is assumed to be drab, inept, and opportunistic; but such assumptions impose a uniformity on the work of Soviet writers that the censors and the Writers Union could not achieve. An exploration of Berggol'ts's work shows that the borders between 'official' and 'unofficial' literature were in fact permeable and shifting. This book draws on unpublished sources such as diaries and notebooks to reveal the range and scope of her work, and to show how conflict and ambiguity functioned as a creative structuring principle. Dr Hodgson discusses how Berggol'ts's lyric poetry constructs the subject from multiple, conflicting discourses, and examines the poet's treatment of genres such as narrative verse, verse tragedy, and prose in the changing cultural context of the 1950s. Berggol'ts's use of inter-textual, and especially intra-textual, reference is also investigated; the intensively self-referential nature of her work creates a web of allusion which connects texts of different genres, 'official' as well as 'unofficial' writing. This study will provoke readers into reassessing the cultural heritage of an era that can seem remote and impenetrable, but which (like Ol'ga Berggol'ts) was far more complex and intriguing.

From the Renaissance well into the eighteenth century hundreds of Latin poems, some running to tens of thousands of verses, were produced on subjects as multifarious as they were topical: meteorology and magnetism, raising chickens and children, the arts of sculpture and engraving, writing and conversation, the social and medicinal benefits of coffee and chocolate, the pious life and the urbane life. Loyola's Bees is the first full-length study of the Latin didactic poetry of the Society of Jesus, a Catholic Reformation order whose priests were the leading exponents of the genre in the early modern period. If post-Romantic readers have, in the main, lost the taste for a 'poetry of things', the poems in this book will command scholarly attention at least for what they reveal about early modern social, cultural, and intellectual life, Jesuit attitudes to the New World and the New Science, and the circulation of Latin literature in France and Italy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. But modern readers will also be pleasantly surprised by their literary qualities. Often elegant, witty, and for all their enthusiastic engagement with contemporary events and inventions, self-consciously 'classical' in form, Jesuit didactic poems are a treasure waiting to be discovered by students of the classical tradition. Loyola's Bees is no mere descriptive survey, however. Haskell sets out to resolve the paradox of the crack troops of early modern Catholicism devoting so much time to the composition of Latin verse of a secular orientation. Poems on a wide and disparate range of subjects are analysed from the unifying perspective of Jesuit ideology, and Haskell articulates the ways in which the Society's distinctive brand of humanist pedagogy, together with its apostolic (world-directed) spiritual ethos, determined both the specific forms and vigorous fortune of the Latin didactic genre in the early modern period.

Über Kraft und Macht des Erzählens Überall wird von der prägenden Kraft der Erzählung gesprochen: in der Geschichtsschreibung, in Recht, Politik und Ökonomie. Erzählerisch werden Konfliktzonen vermessen, gesellschaftliche Institutionen begründet, Vergangenheiten und Zukünfte imaginiert. Insofern stellen kollektive Erzählungen ein wichtiges Medium der Selbststeuerung von Gesellschaften dar. Noch immer fehlt es aber an einer Erzähltheorie, die systematisch über ihren klassischen Geltungsbereich, die Literatur, hinausgeht. Das hier vorgelegte Buch zeigt Wege auf, um diese Lücke zu schließen. Es stellt den dichterischen Fiktionen nicht nur die Vielfalt unmittelbar mit der sozialen Praxis verflochtener Erzählweisen gegenüber, sondern fragt allgemeiner nach den kulturellen Transformationsregeln zwischen Wirklichkeit und Fiktion. Ein wichtiges Buch zu einem der Schlüsselbegriffe der Kulturwissenschaft.

Dieses Buch macht in zahlreichen Beiträgen auf Dimensionen des Handelns aufmerksam, die in der Geschichte der Sozialwissenschaften bisher eher ein Schattendasein führten. »Erleben«, »Erleiden«, »Erfahren« stehen dabei für drei Kategorien, die zwar schon auf eine philosophische Karriere zurückblicken können, in der Soziologie aber noch kaum etabliert sind. Der prominent besetzte Band leistet im Anschluss an diverse Theorietraditionen erste Übersetzungsversuche. Darüber hinaus werden in empirischen Zugriffen unterschiedliche Modalitäten und Eigenschaften ungeplanter Ereignisse herausgestellt und auf ihre identitätskonstitutive Funktion hin beleuchtet. Mit Beiträgen von Jeffrey C. Alexander, Aleida Assmann, Jan Assmann, Zygmunt Bauman, Heinz Bude, Helmut Dubiel, Klaus Eder, Shmuel N. Eisenstadt, Gerold Gerber, Alois Hahn, Kay Junge, Albrecht Koschorke, Claus Leggewie, Stephan Moebius, Richard Münch, Günter Oesterle, Andreas Reckwitz, Karl-Siegbert Rehberg, Michael Schmid, Wolfgang Ludwig Schneider, Wolfgang Seibel, Daniel Suber, Arpad Szakolczai und Johannes Weiß.
