Ulrich Muhlack entwickelt seine Darstellung von Renaissance und Humanismus aus der Begriffs- und Forschungsgeschichte, d.h. ausgehend von Vasari über Voltaire, Ranke und Burkhardt bis in die Gegenwart. Im Zentrum des Bandes stehen die Ausprägungen im deutschsprachigen Raum, die für die Renaissance aber aus dem italienischen Original abgeleitet und entwickelt werden und außerdem in einen gesamteuropäischen Kontext gestellt werden, während diese Perspektiven für den Humanismus von vornherein integriert sind. Er demonstriert damit nicht nur, dass sich im Rekurs auf diese Traditionen immer noch neue Ansätze für die aktuelle Forschung ergeben. Muhlack gelingt so auch ein großer Überblick über zwei zentrale und nicht zu trennende Phänomene der europäischen Kulturgeschichte, die in der jüngeren Vergangenheit zunehmend verwässerten und in einer Vielzahl immer kleinteiligerer Detailstudien verloren zu gehen drohten. Er bietet Studierenden damit eine konzise Darstellung von zwei unverzichtbaren Themen im Studium der Frühen Neuzeit und Kulturgeschichte, die - flankiert von einer ausführlichen Bibliographie - gleichermaßen zum fundierten Einsteigen in das Thema wie auch zu seiner Vertiefung befähigt.

´´To hold a pen is to be at war.´´ - Voltaire ´´All men are equal; it is not their birth, but virtue itself that makes the difference.´´ - Voltaire The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything ´´irrational´´ to a world more similar to today´s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as individual and collective freedom and liberty. At the heart of the movement in France was François-Marie Arouet, better known by the pen name Voltaire, whose voluminous writings advocated for greater liberalism, including the freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. In addition to the classic Candide, Voltaire was a biting polemic whose satirical attacks on the Catholic Church were among the fiercest of his day. He also understood the risks he was taking with these writings, at one point explaining, ´´It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.´´ The Enlightenment is looked upon fondly, and it serves to reinforce the notion that the present is superior to the past, but things did not change as rapidly or as completely as many believe. In fact, some recent historians have challenged the belief that the Enlightenment was responsible for the French Revolution, which is a vital issue when it comes to Voltaire. After all, Voltaire, as his contemporaries and as most of his modern listeners know him, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, the symbol of the era of reason, and the harbinger of modern values. ungekürzt.

´´To hold a pen is to be at war.´´ (Voltaire) ´´Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage against oneself.´´ (Rousseau) The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything ´´irrational´´ to a world more similar to today´s world.

The seventeenth century was one of the most fascinating and seminal periods in European history, particularly with regard to France. For it was here in France that the fruits of the earlier Renaissance were to be most brilliantly realized. Although the path of ´´greatness´´ for Louis XIV was prepared for him by men like Richelieu, Mazarin, Colbert, Turenne, and Louvois, it was during his reign that French preeminence in all facets of civilization emerged. In diplomacy, military science, art, architecture, literature, fashion, music, gastronomy, philosophy, physics, mathematics, engineering, and many other fields of endeavor, France stood at the pinnacle of human achievement. She was to remain there until the time of Napoleon. How did this hegemony come about?Laurence Bradford Packard, an eminent historian and scholar, traces the origins of absolute monarchy and tells us how the political evolution of inherited kingship came to be what it was by the time of Louis XIV. He explains the marvelous diplomatic machinery backed by military might that made France the most feared nation in Europe for almost 200 years. And he discusses the various intellectual controversies of the day which were to produce some of the greatest minds in Europe. There has never been a period which produced so many masters of language: Voltaire, Moliere, Racine, Corneille, Pascal, Bayle, Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Bossuet, and many others. And of course, there were Milton, Hobbes, and Locke in England. Packard gives them all their due and goes on to explore the other arts, as well. The book ends with an appraisal of the amazing progress Europeans, and especially the French, made in the scientific fields. The names are legendary: Descartes, Newton, Boyle, Leeuwenhoek, Leibnitz, and others. It was a titanic period, and hovering above them all was the man who symbolized the power and majesty of the absolute monarchy...Louix XIV. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

The Freakonomics of math - a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands.The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it. Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world. It’s a science of not being wrong, hammered out by centuries of hard work and argument. Armed with the tools of mathematics, we can see through to the true meaning of information we take for granted: How early should you get to the airport? What does ´´public opinion” really represent? Why do tall parents have shorter children? Who really won Florida in 2000? And how likely are you, really, to develop cancer? How Not to Be Wrong presents the surprising revelations behind all of these questions and many more, using the mathematician’s method of analyzing life and exposing the hard-won insights of the academic community to the layman—minus the jargon. Ellenberg chases mathematical threads through a vast range of time and space, from the everyday to the cosmic, encountering, among other things, baseball, Reaganomics, daring lottery schemes, Voltaire, the replicability crisis in psychology, Italian Renaissance painting, artificial languages, the development of non-Euclidean geometry, the coming obesity apocalypse, Antonin Scalia’s views on crime and punishment, the psychology of slime molds, what Facebook can and can’t figure out about you, and the existence of God. Ellenberg pulls from history as well as from the latest theoretical developments to provide those not trained in math with the knowledge they need. Math, as Ellenber... ungekürzt. Language: English.

Ellenberg pulls from history as well as from the latest theoretical developments to provide those not trained in math with the knowledge they need. Math, as Ellenberg says, is an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength. With the tools of mathematics in hand, you can understand the world in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Whether around the campfire, between the covers of a great book, or in the theater, the desire to tell stories has been a common human impulse for thousands of years. These 48 lectures take you on a journey through time and around the world- from the enormous auditoriums of ancient Greece to a quiet study in the home of a 19th-century New England spinster- to introduce the history of world literature. In this course, you´ll sample some of the greatest literary expressions the world has known and experience storytelling in its many forms, including poetry, drama, and narrative. You´ll explore: the ancient world, where tribal bards created national myths and founded religious texts out of legends, history, philosophy, and local lore; the countryside and aristocratic courts of India and the Middle East, collecting stories and folklore of magical men, terrifying beasts, alluring women, and conniving tricksters that live on in today´s fairy tales and bedtime stories; the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Enlightenment to trace the evolution of storytelling from the poetic masterpiece of Dante´s Inferno to the great drama pioneered by Shakespeare to sophisticated narratives such as Wu Ch´eng-en´s Monkey and Voltaire´s Candide; and the rise of Realism in the works of Flaubert, Dostoevsky, and Chekhov and the development of experimental modes by Brecht, Beckett, and Borges. Offering concise summaries and thought-provoking interpretations of some of the world´s greatest literary masterpieces, this course gives you the tools you need to appreciate these great literary works and understand how authors, playwrights, and poets throughout the centuries have practiced their craft. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. Language: English. Narrator: Professor Grant L. Voth.
