This book is an important attempt to understand the class of Mycenaean site known as the `cult centre'. After examining the concept the author synthesises the evidence from Mycenae, Phylakopi, Tiryns, Asine and Agia Irini. Systematic comparative study of the architecture and spatial patterning of artefacts allows the author to arrive at some interesting conclusions about the role of these puzzling sites.
An attempt to look afresh at `old' material such as the well-known seals of Crete. Sbonias' study looks first at the settlement picture of the island at the time when these seals were being produced. He then turns his attention to the classification of the seals and the immages on them, dividing them up according to shape and material. This is followed by grouping according to iconographic and stylistic elements. This done, the information is then interpreted so as to reveal niformation on social and economic aspects of the early Cretan seals: what developments are represtented by their use, their decoration and so on.

Minoan sealings are generally treated as historical evidence, shedding light on a long-gone society. The author here treats them from a more art-historical perspective, discussing the internal logic of Minoan and Mycenaean art and the rules applied to the constrcution of am image. She surveys over 100 images, many of bucking animals, and reproduces them in black and white with a detailed catalogue.
Ungeachtet des anhaltenden Interesses an Person und Werk Arthur Schnitzlers sind zahlreiche Fragen im Zusammenhang der Produktion, Rezeption und Adaption der Werke des großen österreichischen Autors nach wie vor unzureichend erforscht. Die hier versammelten Beiträge entwickeln neue Perspektiven und Forschungsansätze, so u.a. zu bislang kaum behandelten Texten des Früh- und Spätwerks, zu den Beziehungen Schnitzlers zu zeitgenössischen Autoren (u.a. F. v. Saar, J. Wassermann), zur Stellung des Werks innerhalb zentraler epochaler Diskurskomplexe wie dem Antisemitismus und der Psychiatrie/Psychoanalyse, zu Aspekten der (Inter-)Medialität (Musik und Film) und Materialität sowie zur Geschichte der inner- und außereuropäischen Rezeption (u.a. England und China).
This study is concerned with the examination of Hellenistic finger-rings, defined as such by their pictorial engravings. The principal aim of this art-historical and historical study is to provide a chronological framework for the designs, made difficult by the fact that these desirable items are often held in private collections. Motifs include Greek gods and goddesses, Hellenistic-Egyptian symbols as well as family emblems. The pictorial representations are compared with general trends in Hellenistic art and the production of finger-rings is examined in relation to Hellenistic material culture in general. This rigorous and scientific examination, focusing on the late 4th to mid 2nd century BC, concludes with a catalogue of 174 motifs.
Über den Arabischen Frühling, Occupy Wall Street – und den Massenmord von Breivik 2011 – das Jahr des Arabischen Frühlings, der Occupy Wall Street-Bewegung, der Revolte in den Vorstädten Londons. 2011 – das Jahr von Breiviks ideologischer Wahnsinnstat, des aufkommenden Antisemitismus in Ungarn, des zunehmenden Rassismus. Gefährliche Träume in zweierlei Richtung stehen dahinter: emanzipatorische und destruktive. Was bedeuten diese Ereignisse im Kontext des globalen Kapitalismus? Mit Dialektik, analytischer Schärfe und gewohnt pointensicher legt Slavoj Žižek die Widersprüche der gegenwärtigen politischen Lage frei und fragt, wie wir das System bekämpfen können, ohne zu seinem Funktionieren beizutragen. »Theorie muss auch immer sexy sein, sie muss unterhalten, provozieren, bruchstückhaft und leicht zitierbar sein, physisch spürbar wie Rockmusik. All das liefert Žižek.« Der Spiegel
