Deleuze and Psychoanalysis

Philosophical Essays on Deleuze's Debate with Psychoanalysis

Leen De Bolle (ed.)

Gilles Deleuze is among the twentieth century's most important philosophers of difference. The style of his extended oeuvre is so extremely dense and cryptic that reading and appreciating it require an unusual degree of openness and a willingness to enter a complicated but extremely rich system of thought. The abundant debates with and references to a variety of authors of many different domains; the sophisticated conceptual framework; the creation of new concepts and the injection of existing concepts with new meanings - all this makes his oeuvre difficult to grasp. This book can be seen as a guide to reading Deleuze, but at the same time it is a direct confrontation with issues at stake, particularly the debate with and against psychoanalysis. This debate not only offers the occasion to find an entrance to Deleuze's basic thought, but also throws the reader into the middle of the dispute. The book provides a clear and perspicuous overview of subject matter of interest to psychoanalysts, Deleuzean or otherwise.

Die Marias von Cornelius Aurelius

Einleitung, Textausgabe und Anmerkungen

Jan C. Bedaux

Die Textausgabe der Marias, ein Gedicht von Cornelis Aurelius, umfaßt eine Einleitung, den Text des Gedichtes, Anmerkungen zum Text und schließlich einen Index nominum und einen Index fontium. Die Edition basiert auf der einzigen Handschrift der Marias, die heute in der Athenaeumbibliotheek in Deventer bewahrt wird. Diese Handschrift umfaßt neben einem Widmungsbrief des Autors an den Deventer Schulmeister Jacobus Faber und einer introductio die ersten zehn Bücher des Gedichtes; die zweite und dritte Decade sind nicht erhalten. Die Einleitung zur Edition behandelt zunächst kurz das Leben des niederländischen Humanisten Cornelis Aurelius (ca. 1460 bis vor Dezember 1531). Es folgen die Datierung des Werkes (zwischen 1491 / Anfang 1492 und Herbst 1497) und ein Inhaltsverzeichnis - das Leben Marias bis zum Auftreten Jesu bei den Schriftgelehrten (Luc. 2, 41-52). Bei der anschließenden Charakterisierung des Werkes wird auch ein Passus aus dem Widmungsbrief des Aurelius erörtert. Hier erklärt der Autor, daß er den Text von Baptista Mantuanus' Parthenice prima erst nach der Vollendung der ersten Decade in die Hände bekam. Obwohl er behauptet, den überschwänglichen Stil dieses Werkes zu mißbilligen, stellt sich heraus, daß er dennoch dem Werk von Mantuanus namentlich in den ersten drei Büchern der Marias vieles entlehnt hat. Daneben hat Aurelius häufig Sabellicus' Elegiae XIII divae virginis Mariae und Agricolas Anna mater benutzt. Auffällig sind außerdem die von Aurelius wörtlich übernommenen Passagen aus der Ilias latina und aus Petrus Rigas Aurora. Obwohl seine Zeitgenossen Aurelius wegen seiner dichterischen Fähigkeiten loben, läßt er wiederholt durchblicken, dies zu bezweifeln. Aber natürlich können seine diesbezüglichen Bemerkungen auch als captatio benevolentiae gedeutet werden. Auf die Einleitung folgt der Text des oben genannten Widmungsbriefes und des Gedichtes (die introductio und die Bücher I bis X). Das gesamte Gedicht umfaßt 4452 Verse. Der Anmerkungsapparat zur Ausgabe der Marias enthält Verweise auf die von Aurelius verwendete Literatur. Neben den Passagen, die deutlich Entlehnungen darstellen, sind auch die Stellen aufgenommen, die Reminiszensen an oder Echos von - vor allem antiken - Autoren anklingen lassen. Auffälligerweise trifft man hierbei Entlehnungen aus Werken anderer Autoren nicht regelmäßig verteilt über den gesamten Text an. Offenbar hat Aurelius schon im Vorhinein für jede Passage die Stellen ausgesucht, die er aus seinen Vorlagen verwenden wollte. Dieses Verfahren kann man auch aus dem Index fontium ableiten, der zusammen mit dem Index nominum diese Edition abschließt. Die Ausgabe der Marias ist ein schönes Beispiel dafür, wie die frühen niederländischen Humanisten religiöse Poesie schrieben und dabei von italienischen Autoren wie Mantuanus und Sabellicus beeinflußt wurden.

Diogenes of Oinoanda · Diogène d’Œnoanda

Epicureanism and Philosophical Debates · Épicurisme et controverses

Jürgen Hammerstaedt, Pierre-Marie Morel, Refik Güremen (eds)

First collection of essays entirely devoted to the inscription of Diogenes of Oinoanda. The texts of Diogenes of Oinoanda (2nd century AD) who invited his readers to an Epicurean life is the largest ancient inscription ever discovered. Over 70 new finds have increased the number of known wall blocks and fragments to nearly 300, offering new insights into Diogenes’ distinctive presentation of philosophy. This collection of essays discusses the philosophical significance of these discoveries and is the first of this kind entirely devoted to Diogenes of Oinoanda. Particular attention is paid to his philosophical aims and polemical strategies. Diogenes was apparently well aware of still ongoing philosophical debates, engaging in polemics against Presocratic philosophers, Platonics, and especially Stoics. His views about important issues like happiness, fear, old age, and the afterlife are explained on the bases of Epicurean physics and theology, ethics, politics, theory of knowledge, and psychology. Les textes de Diogène d’Œnoanda (Deuxième siècle de notre ère), qui invitait ses lecteurs au mode de vie épicurien, constituent la plus grande inscription antique jamais découverte. Les recherches récentes (plus de 70 pièces) ont porté le nombre de morceaux du mur et de fragments à près de 300, offrant ainsi un nouvel aperçu de la pensée propre de Diogène. Les essais réunis dans ce volume, le premier recueil d’articles entièrement consacré à Diogène d’Œnoanda, examinent la signification de ces découvertes. Ils portent une attention particulière aux intentions philosophiques de Diogène et à ses stratégies polémiques. L’épicurien était manifestement bien averti des débats philosophiques de son temps, engageant lui-même la polémique contre les présocratiques, les platoniciens et, plus spécialement, les stoïciens. Ses idées concernant les problèmes fondamentaux du bonheur, de la peur, de la vieillesse et de la vie après la mort ont pour horizon la pensée épicurienne sous ses différents aspects : physique et théologie, éthique, politique, théorie de la connaissance et psychologie.

(Dis)embodying Myths in Ancien Régime Opera

Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Bruno Forment (ed.)

Throughout the Ancien Régime, mythology played a vital role in opera, defining such epoch-making works as Claudio Monteverdi's La favola d'Orfeo (1607) and Christoph Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride (1779). The operatic presence of the Greco-Roman gods and heroes was anything but unambiguous or unproblematic, however. (Dis)embodying Myths in Ancien Régime Opera highlights myth's chameleonic life in the Italian dramma per musica and French tragédie en musique of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Written by eminent scholars in the fields of music, literature, theatre, and cultural studies, the six essays in this book address important questions. Through what ideological lenses did the Ancien Régime perceive an ancient legacy that was fundamentally pagan and fictitious, as opposed to Christian and rationalistic? What dramaturgies did librettists and composers devise to adapt mythical topics to altering philosophical and esthetic doctrines? Were the ancients' precepts obeyed or precisely overridden by the age of ‘classicism'? And how could myths be made to fit changing modes of spectatorship? Enlightening and wide-ranging on an essentially multidisciplinary development in European culture, (Dis)embodying Myths in Ancien Régime Opera will appeal to all music, literature, and art lovers seeking to deepen their knowledge of an increasingly popular repertoire.

Doodgewone woorden

NS-taal en de Shoah

Fabian Van Samang

De uitroeiing van de Europese joden is het symbool geworden van de moderne, gebureaucratiseerde massamoord. Als geen ander historisch thema heeft de judeocide ons gedwongen om na te denken over de vraag welke factoren aan de grondslag liggen van dit soort georganiseerde brutaliteit - een vraag die nog steeds op een bevredigend antwoord wacht. Doodgewone woorden benadert de Shoah vanuit een verrassende, nieuwe invalshoek. In een vlot leesbare stijl beschrijft Fabian Van Samang de typische kenmerken van de nazitaal en beargumenteert hij hoe dit specifieke NS-discours mee aan de basis lag van de ontwikkeling van de Shoah. Hij brengt inzichten uit de psychologie, geschiedenis, filosofie en taalkunde op subtiele wijze samen. Sleuteldocumenten worden in een nieuw licht geplaatst, bestaande interpretaties worden getoetst en het besluitvormingsproces wordt opnieuw bekeken. Doodgewone woorden is een gewaagd en uitdagend boek dat de lezer er ongetwijfeld zal toe aanzetten zichzelf, zijn omgeving en zijn taal kritisch te bevragen.

Dramma Giocoso

Four Contemporary Perspectives on the Mozart/Da Ponte Operas

Sergio Durante, Stefan Rohringer, Julian Rushton, James Webster. Edited by Darla Crispin

The three Mozart/Da Ponte operas offer an inexhaustible wellspring for critical reflection, possessing a complexity and equivocation common to all great humane works. They have the potential to reflect and refract whatever locus of contemporaneity may be the starting point for enquiry. Thus, even postmodern and postmillennial concerns, far from seeming irrelevant to these operas, are instead given new perspectives by them, whilst the music and the dramatic situations have the multivalency to accept each refreshed pallet of interpretation without loss of their essential character. These operas seem perennially ‘new'. In exploring the evergreen qualities of Don Giovanni and Le Nozze di Figaro, this collection of studies does not shun approaches that have foundations in established theory, but refracts them through such problems as the tension between operatic tradition and psychological realism, the co-existence of multiple yet equal plots, and the antagonism between the tenets of tradition and the need for self-actualization. In exploring such themes, the authors not only illuminate new aspects of Mozart's operatic compositions, but also probe the nature of musical analysis itself.

The Early Modern Cultures of Neo-Latin Drama

Philip Ford; Andrew Taylor (eds)

The essays in this collection all illustrate the vitality of Neo-Latin drama in early modern Europe, arising from its productive combination of classical models with deep-rooted vernacular traditions. While the plays were often composed in the context of a school or university setting, the dramatists seldom neglected the need to appeal to a broad audience, including non-Latinists. Yet the use of Latin, and the ambiguity of a plurivocal literary form, allowed the authors of these plays to introduce messages and ideas which could be subversive of the prevailing political and religious authorities. At the same time, humanist colleges, and their Jesuit successors, were quick to see the educational advantages to be derived from staging plays performed by pupils, which had the advantage of acting as powerful advertisements for the schools. Neo-Latin drama in all its forms offered a freedom of expression and form which is rare in other Renaissance literary genres.

Ecclesia in medio nationis

Reflections on the Study of Monasticism in the Central Middle Ages - Réflexions sur l'étude du monachismeau moyen âge central

Steven Vanderputten; Brigitte Meijns (eds)

The role of monastic institutions in society during the Central Middle Ages has been much debated in medieval studies. Some scholars saw monasticism as the principal motivator of economic, social, intellectual and ‘spiritual' progress in human society, while others regarded monastic ideology as fundamentally anti-social and oriented towards itself. These debates seem to have lost some of their relevance to the present-day scholar. Today monasticism is studied as a social entity which needed interactions with the outside world, not only to subsist in a physical sense, but also to give a clear sense of purpose to its members. Drawing on recent trends in historical scholarship, this volume seeks to identify some of the major questions that will dominate research into monasticism in the years to come. Contributions deal with the evolution of monasticism itself, its links with aristocracy, the economic relations of religious communities and their physical and ideological boundaries, and the representation of the outside world in monastic manuscripts.

The Economics of Providence / L'économie de la providence

Management, Finances and Patrimony of Religious Orders and Congregations in Europe, 1773 - ca. 1930 / Gestion, finances et patrimoine des ordres et congregations en Europe, 1773 - ca. 1930

Maarten Van Dijck; Jan De Maeyer; Jeffrey Tyssens; Jimmy Koppen (eds)

During the French Revolution almost all monasteries and abbeys were suppressed and their possessions seized. Yet after the French Revolution many religious institutes were very successful in re-establishing themselves, sometimes accumulating large patrimonies, against the background of often hostile political forces. This book deals with the question of how the religious orders and congregations rebuilt their patrimony, a necessary prerequisite for the growth of the number of religious, educational and charitable services. The authors discuss the (real or supposed) wealth, the financial structures, and the management and juridical foundations of the orders and congregations in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Ireland, and the United Kingdom from the late eighteenth century to the 1930s.
