Collects three of the author's novels, all inspired by the tragedies faced by the Igbo people during the European colonization of Africa.
The publication of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart (1958) is heralded as the inaugural moment of modern African fiction, and the book remains the most widely read African novel of all time. Translated into dozens of languages, it has sold more than twelve million copies, and has become a canonical reading in schools the world over. While Things Fall Apart is neither the first African novel to be published in the West nor necessarily the most critically valued, its iconic status has surpassed even that of its author. Until now—in the sixtieth anniversary year of its publication—there has not been an updated history that moves beyond the book’s commonly discussed contexts and themes. In the accessible and concise A Short History of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, Terri Ochiagha provides that history, asking new questions and bringing to wider attention unfamiliar but crucial elements of the Things Fall Apart story. These include new insights into questions of canonicity and into literary, historiographical, and precolonial aesthetic influences. She also assesses adaptations and appropriations not just in films but in theater, hip-hop, and popular literary genres such as Onitsha Market Literature.
Written during a period of nationalist assertion and an emerging modern culture in Africa, Things Fall Apart's influence quickly spread from Nigeria throughout Africa and beyond. In its fifty years, this unforgettable novel has been translated into fifty languages and has been read by millions. A Chronology of Achebe's life and work and a Selected Bibliography are also included.
Das Ziel des Sammelbandes ist es, in der aktuellen bioethischen Debatte neue Impulse zu setzen, da sie augenscheinlich mit ihrem Personenbegriff noch keine zufriedenstellenden Ergebnisse erreicht hat. Die, auf den ersten Blick, nonpersonale buddhistische Ethik mit ihrem annatā-Konzept könnte auf die drängenden bioethischen Fragen und Probleme neue Antworten finden. Sie steht deshalb im Zentrum dieses Bandes. Andere Beiträge beschäftigen sich mit den Themen Leben, Körper/Leib, Person und Selbst und stellen indische, afrikanische und westliche Standpunkte vor. So kann aufgezeigt werden, wie reich die Debatte an kulturell wie theoretisch unterschiedlichen Perspektiven ist. Schließlich werden noch die Feldforschungs-Ergebnisse aus Sri Lanka, Ladakh und Dharmasala des durch die DFG finanzierten Projekts präsentiert, womit erst die ambitionierte Aufgabe des Bandes erfüllt werden konnte, die festgefahrene Diskussion in der Bioethik mit alternativen Blickwinkeln wiederzubeleben. Mit Beiträgen von Stephan Grätzel, Paul Nnodim, Patricia Rehm-Grätzel, Dirk Solies, Tobias Schlicht, Michael von Brück, Jens Schlieter, Eberhard Guhe, Mark Siderits, Alfred Weil, Jonardon Ganeri, Volker Caysa, Matthias Koßler und Stephan Schaede.
