Religi Se Argumente Im S Kularen Verfassungsstaat Eine Demokratietheoretische Diskussion from the Author: Daniel Jesche. Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 1,3, Universitat Bremen, 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Religion ist als Gegenstand offentlicher Diskussion wieder auf der Agenda angekommen. Dies ist nicht erst seit dem 11. September 2001 der Fall. Von der religiosen Rechten in den USA uber das Mullahregime im Iran und dem vermeintlichen Zusammenprall der Kulturen bis zur Debatte um das Tragen eines Kopftuchs in der Schule. Religion wird zusehends unter dem Gesichtspunkt ihrer Vereinbarkeit mit den sie umgebenden Rahmenbedingungen betrachtet. Demgegenuber herrschte in der akademischen Diskussion zur Rolle der Religion lange Zeit Stille(vgl. Haus 2003: 45). Dies mag am gangigen Perzeptionsmuster in den Sozialwissenschaften liegen, welches seit seinen Anfangen einen wahrlich paradigmatischen Status erlangt hat. Die Rede ist von der Sakularisierungsthese. Lange Zeit galt die Sachlage in Bezug auf die Religion als geklart, doch mehr und mehr setzt sich das Bewusstsein durch, dass die Austarierung von Religion und Politik in Form der liberalen Trennungsthese in den westlichen Demokratien einer Neuverortung bedarf. Um diese Neubewertung soll es hier gehen. Dabei stehen sich John Rawls mit seiner Konzeption eines Offentlichen Vernunftgebrauchs" und Jurgen Habermas, der fur eine Neukonzeption des Staatsburgerethos und eine Neuverteilung der Lasten des Pluralismus eintritt, gegenuber. Bevor diese Diskussion zum Hauptgegenstand werden kann, bedarf es zu allererst einer begrifflichen Auseinandersetzung mit der Religion. Das fur das Verhaltnis von Religion und Politik allgemein zugrunde liegende Beziehungsgeflecht soll im darauf folgenden zweiten Teil erarbeitet werden. Hierzu gehort einerseits die Schilderung der Bedeutung der Entstehung des modernen, sakularen Staates, die auch einen ersten Begriff von Sakularisierung mit sich bringt. Andererseits kommt es hier auf die gesellschaftliche K

The Clash Of Civilizations And The Remaking Of World Order from the Author: Samuel P. Huntington. The classic study of post-Cold War international relations, more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 world, with a new foreword by Zbigniew Brzezinski. Since its initial publication, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order has become a classic work of international relations and one of the most influential books ever written about foreign affairs. An insightful and powerful analysis of the forces driving global politics, it is as indispensable to our understanding of American foreign policy today as the day it was published. As former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says in his new foreword to the book, it “has earned a place on the shelf of only about a dozen or so truly enduring works that provide the quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.” Samuel Huntington explains how clashes between civilizations are the greatest threat to world peace but also how an international order based on civilizations is the best safeguard against war. Events since the publication of the book have proved the wisdom of that analysis. The 9/11 attacks and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the threat of civilizations but have also shown how vital international cross-civilization cooperation is to restoring peace. As ideological distinctions among nations have been replaced by cultural differences, world politics has been reconfigured. Across the globe, new conflicts—and new cooperation—have replaced the old order of the Cold War era. The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order explains how the population explosion in Muslim countries and the economic rise of East Asia are changing global politics. These developments challenge Western dominance, promote opposition to supposedly “universal” Western ideals, and intensify intercivilization conflict over such issues as nuclear proliferation, immigration, human rights, and democracy. The Muslim population surge has led to many small wars throughout Eurasia, and the rise of China could lead to a global war of civilizations. Huntington offers a strategy for the West to preserve its unique culture and emphasizes the need for people everywhere to learn to coexist in a complex, multipolar, muliticivilizational world.

Magic As Metaphor In Anime from the Author: Dani Cavallaro. Since its inception as an art form, anime has engaged with themes, symbols and narrative strategies drawn from the realm of magic. In recent years, the medium has increasingly turned to magic specifically as a metaphor for a wide range of cultural, philosophical and psychological concerns. This book first examines a range of Eastern and Western approaches to magic in anime, addressing magical thinking as an overarching concept which unites numerous titles despite their generic and tonal diversity. It then explores the collusion of anime and magic with reference to specific topics. A close study of cardinal titles is complemented by allusions to ancillary productions in order to situate the medium's fascination with magic within an appropriately broad historical context.

Libraries have begun purchasing both manga and anime, particularly for their teen collections. But the sheer number of titles available can be overwhelming, not to mention the diversity and quirky cultural conventions.

This book gives the novice background information necessary to feel confident in selecting, working with, and advocating for manga and anime collections; and it offers more experienced librarians some fresh insights and ideas for programming and collections. In 2003 the manga (Japanese comics) market was the fastest growing area of pop culture, with 75-100% growth to an estimated market size of $100 million retail. The growth has continued with a 40-50% sales increase in bookstores in recent years. Teens especially love this highly visual, emotionally charged and action-packed media imported from Japan, and its sister media, anime (Japanese animation); and libraries have begun purchasing both. Chock full of checklists and sidebars highlighting key points, this book includes: a brief history of anime and manga in Japan and in the West; a guide to visual styles and cues; a discussion of common themes and genres unique to manga and anime; their intended audiences; cultural differences in format and content; multicultural trends that manga and anime readers embrace and represent; and programming and event ideas. It also includes genre breakdowns and annotated lists of recommended titles, with a focus on the best titles in print and readily available, particularly those appropriate to preteen and teen readers. Classic and benchmark titles are also mentioned as appropriate. A glossary and a list of frequently asked questions complete the volume.

Classical Social Theory And Modern Society from the Author: Edward Royce. Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim, and Max Weber are indispensable for understanding the sociological enterprise. They are among the chief founders of the discipline and among the foremost theorists of modernity, and their work can stimulate readers to reflect on their own identities and worldviews. Classical Social Theory and Modern Society introduces students to these three thinkers and shows their continued relevance today. The first chapter sets the stage by situating the work of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber in the context of three modernizing revolutions: the Enlightenment, the French Revolution of 1789, and the Industrial Revolution. Three overview chapters follow that summarize the key ideas of each thinker, focusing on their contributions to the development of sociology and their conceptions of modern society. The last portion of the book explores the thinking of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber on four themes—the pathologies of modern society, the predicament of the modern individual, the state and democracy, and socialism versus capitalism. These thematic chapters place Marx, Durkheim, and Weber in dialogue with one another, offering students the opportunity to wrestle with conflicting ideas on issues that are still significant today. Classical sociology is essential to the teaching of sociology and also an invaluable tool in the education of citizens.
