This book fills a significant gap in the climatological literature, providing a comprehensive assessment of the climates of the southern hemisphere. It is the first book of its type to provide a consolidated view of the climates of southern Africa, Australia, South America and Antarctica, addressing past and future climates as well as those of the present. Present climates are considered in the first part of the book, to provide a background against which past and future climates can be investigated. Emphasis in the book is on the inter-relatedness of global, synoptic and smaller scale aspects of southern hemisphere continental climates. Discussion of topical, but fundamental, concerns including El Ni?o, global warming and climate variability is incorporated throughout the text. The study of the climatology of the southern hemisphere is fundamental to our understanding of climates and climatic issues across the globe. The book will therefore be of particular interest to scientists interested in climate with a focus beyond the southern hemisphere, as well as those with a specialised interest in all or part of the southern hemisphere. It is also a significant addition to the literature for climate researchers as well as for undergraduate students studying climatology in the atmospheric, environmental and earth sciences.

Das Ich im Wir

Studien zur Anerkennungstheorie

Author: Axel Honneth

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3518732382

Category: Philosophy

Page: 308

View: 4514

In den Aufsätzen dieses Bandes verfolgt Axel Honneth seine Überlegungen zu einer Theorie der Anerkennung weiter, vertieft klassische Fragestellungen und erschließt neue Forschungsfelder. Im Vordergrund steht dabei die Absicht, die ursprünglich von Hegel entwickelten Ideen für eine zeitgenössische Konzeption der Gerechtigkeit fruchtbar zu machen. Es soll aber auch gezeigt werden, daß von einem normativen Begriff der Anerkennung aus eine Brücke zu sozialwissenschaftlichen Themen zu schlagen ist, wie sie in der soziologischen Gegenwartsdiagnose oder der Psychoanalyse verhandelt werden.

Die Legende von Sleepy Hollow

Neu übersetzte Ausgabe

Author: Washington Irving

Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand

ISBN: 3842345550

Category: Fiction

Page: 69

View: 2184

Irvings Geschichte vom kopflosen Reitergespenst, die er 1820 veröffentlichte, gehört in den Vereinigten Staaten zu den bekanntesten literarischen Stoffen. Wer sich für die US-amerikanische Kultur interessiert und gleichzeitig eine vergnügliche Lektüre sucht, kommt an "Sleepy Hollow"nicht vorbei. Der Verdienst, diese Geschichte auch deutschen Lesern erschlossen zu haben, gebührt zweifellos Adolf Strodtmann, der diese und weitere englischsprachigen Erzählungen im 19. Jahrhundert übersetzt hat. Allerdings ist diese Übertragung für heutige Leser streckenweise kaum noch verständlich, was die Freude, sich mit der Geschichte zu beschäftigen, deutlich trübt. Dieser Band enthält daher eine aktuelle Übersetzung, die exklusiv für ofd edition erstellt wurde.
