Bernard Mandevilles in der Bienenfabel formulierte scharfsichtige Analyse der Gesellschaft seiner Zeit, vor allem die darin vertretene Auffassung vom Wesen der Ethik - private Laster, öffentliche Vorteile -, und der Essay über die Armenschulen lösten noch unter seinen Zeitgenossen eine lebhafte Diskussion aus. Wie viele Philosophen des beginnenden bürgerlichen Zeitalters war Mandeville davon überzeugt, daß am Anfang allen Philosophierens über gesellschaftliche Zustände die Erforschung der menschlichen Natur ´´so, wie sie in Wirklichkeit ist, nicht, wie sie sein sollte´´, stehen müsse.

(1994/Delmark) 7 tracks In 1993, drummer Kahil El´Zabar and his Chicago-based Ritual Trio (which also includes saxman Ari Brown and bassist Malachi Favors) joined the Delmark roster with Renaissance of the Resistance, an excellent inside/outside date that contains mostly original material. This CD underscores the fact that not all avant-garde jazz is atonal free jazz, on the whole, this is quite musical and melodic. That is true of the funky ´Ornette´ (as in Ornette Coleman), as well the evocative title song and the haunting ´Sweet Meat.´ Meanwhile, ´Trane in Mind´ recalls John Coltrane´s modal period of the early to mid-1960s -- it isn´t the sort of hard bop that the saxman favored in the late 1950s, nor is it the sort of blistering, atonal free jazz that he got into during the last few years of his life. Unlike the bop snobs who are content to spend their lives hearing the same old standards done the same old way, El´Zabar has very eclectic tastes -- the Chicagoan has stated that his taste in music ranges from soul man Jackie Wilson to traditional Bulgarian choirs. And, true to form, he brings a healthy appreciation of world music to this album, combining jazz with African, Middle Eastern, and Asian influences. In fact, the title song and the peaceful ´Golden Sea´ find El´Zabar stretching out on the African thumb piano -- and why not? There is no law stating that a traditional African instrument cannot be used as a jazz instrument. Although 1999´s Africa N´da Blues is arguably the best album that the Ritual Trio provided in the 1990s, Renaissance of the Resistance runs a close second. (AllMusic)

The English Renaissance and the Far East: Cross-Cultural Encounters is an original and timely examination of cultural encounters between Britain, China, and Japan. It challenges accepted, Anglocentric models of East-West relations and offers a radical reconceptualization of the English Renaissance, suggesting it was not so different from current developments in an increasingly Sinocentric world, and that as China, in particular, returns to a global center-stage that it last occupied pre-1800, a curious and overlooked synergy exists between the early modern and the present. Prompted by the current eastward tilt in global power, in particular towards China, Adele Lee examines cultural interactions between Britain and the Far East in both the early modern and postmodern periods. She explores how key encounters with and representations of the Far East are described in early modern writing, and demonstrates how work of that period, particularly Shakespeare, has a special power today to facilitate encounters between Britain and East Asia.Readers will find the past illuminating the present and vice versa in a book that has at its heart resonances between Renaissance and present-day cultural exchanges, and which takes a cyclical, ?long-view? of history to offer a new, innovative approach to a subject of contemporary importance.
