Anthony Thiselton here brings together his encyclopedic knowledge of hermeneutics and his nearly four decades of teaching on the subject to provide a splendid interdisciplinary textbook. After a thorough historical overview of hermeneutics, Thiselton moves into modern times with extensive analysis of scholarship from the mid-twentieth century, including liberation and feminist theologies, reader-response and reception theory, and postmodernism. No other text on hermeneutics covers the range of writers and subjects discussed in Thiselton’s Hermeneutics.

Autonomy In International Contracts

This book explores the source and extent of the right of parties to an international contract to make appropriate arrangements for the determination of their legal relationship, primarily by selecting the applicable law, but also by selecting the judicial or arbitral forum. The book focuses on the legal systems of the United States, the Commonwealth jurisdictions and the civil law countries of western and central Europe, taking as a starting point the provisions of the several Hague Conventions on the Choice of Law in Sales and other contracts, the Rome Convention of 1980 on the Law Applicable to International Contracts and the Mexico Convention of 1994 on the same topic, as well as modern legislation on conflicts of law. Nygh's aim is to discern a general consensus, where present, and to argue for a further development and extension of the principles of autonomy unhampered by historical notions of territoriality and sovereignty, which hitherto have sought to restrain it, with only such limitations as can be justified for the protection of weaker parties or genuine state interests. This fascinating analysis, written from the author's unique perspective, will be welcomed by practitioners and scholars alike. This book is part of the Oxford Monographs in Private International Law series, the aim of which is to publish work of high quality and originality in a number of important areas of private international law. The series is intended for both scholarly and practitioner readers.

Focusing on Hermann von Helmholtz, this study addresses one of the nineteenth century’s most important German natural scientists. Among his most well-known contributions to science are the invention of the ophthalmoscope and grou- breaking work towards formulating the law of the conservation of energy. The volume of his work, reaching from medicine to physiology to physics and epis- mology, his impact on the development of the sciences far beyond German borders, and the contribution he made to the organization and popularization of research, all established Helmholtz’s prominence both in the academic world and in public cultural life. Helmholtz was also one of the last representatives of a conception of nature that strove to reduce all phenomena to matter in motion. In reaction to the increasingly insurmountable difficulties that program had in fulfilling its own standards for s- entific explanation, he developed elements of a modern understanding of science that have remained of fundamental importance to this day.

In 1801, Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlord, Heathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant. Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window. Schauplätze des Romans sind der von der Familie Earnshaw bewirtschaftete Gutshof Wuthering Heights, der auf einer windgepeitschten Anhöhe der Hochmoore von Yorkshire liegt, und das feudalere, im fruchtbaren Tal gelegene Herrenhaus Thrushcross Grange, das der Familie Linton gehört. Die Geschichte dieser beiden Familien wird über drei Generationen hinweg erzählt. Das Geschehen wird beherrscht von dem Findelkind Heathcliff, das der alte Earnshaw als etwa sechsjähriges Kind in den Straßen Liverpools aufgelesen hat und zusammen mit seinen eigenen Kindern Hindley und Catherine (Cathy) aufzieht. Die Haushälterin Ellen Dean, genannt Nelly, wird für Heathcliff ein Mutterersatz. Während sie sich um ihn kümmert, lehnt sie sein fremdartiges Wesen zunächst ab, akzeptiert ihn aber mit der Zeit.

Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation...Darwin legte in diesem Werk zahlreiche Belege für seine Theorie vor, dass sich Tier- und Pflanzenarten durch natürliche Selektion im Laufe langer Zeiträume verändern und dass alle heute existierenden Lebewesen von gemeinsamen Vorfahren abstammen. Bereits auf seiner Weltreise mit der HMS Beagle (1831–1836) hatte Darwin Belege für seine später als Darwinismus bezeichnete Evolutionstheorie gesammelt. Später vermehrte er seine Erkenntnisse durch Experimente und wissenschaftliche Korrespondenz.

Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin, a young man in his mid-twenties and a descendant of one of the oldest Russian lines of nobility, is on a train to Saint Petersburg on a cold November morning. He is returning to Russia having spent the past four years in a Swiss clinic for treatment of a severe epileptic condition. On the journey, Myshkin meets a young man of the merchant class, Parfyon Semyonovich Rogozhin, and is struck by his passionate intensity, particularly about a woman—the dazzling society beauty Nastassya Filippovna—with whom he is obsessed. Der 26-jährige Fürst Lew Myschkin kehrt nach einem fünfjährigen Aufenthalt in einem Schweizer Sanatorium an einem Novembermorgen nach Russland zurück, um in Sankt Petersburg nach dem Tod seines Onkels eine Erbschaftsangelegenheit zu klären. Obwohl seine Epilepsie erfolgreich behandelt wurde, haben sich durch seine Isolation kindlich-naive Verhaltensweisen erhalten und er wird von der Gesellschaft als „Idiot“, in der Bedeutung eines weltfremden Sonderlings, belächelt.

Faust makes an arrangement with the devil: the devil will do everything that Faust wants while he is here on Earth, and in exchange Faust will serve the devil in Hell. Faust's arrangement is that if he is pleased enough with anything the devil gives him that he wants to stay in that moment forever, then he will die in that moment. Faust ist vom Rausch des jugendlichen Lebens nicht zufriedenzustellen, es zieht ihn zurück in seine Heimat. Dort begegnet er an der Kirche Gretchen und verliebt sich in sie. Mephistos Tricks verhelfen Faust zunächst zum Zusammentreffen mit Gretchen in Marthe Schwerdtleins Garten - mit letzterer „vergnügt“ sich Mephisto. Gretchen gewährt Faust schließlich Zugang zu ihrer Kammer. Mephisto sorgt für Entdeckung des Liebespaars. Er lässt durch einen Wind die Mutter erwachen und lockt Gretchens Bruder Valentin aus dem Wirtshaus nach Hause. Die Mutter entdeckt das Paar im Bett, Valentin stellt Faust auf der Flucht zum Kampf. Mephisto tötet Valentin heimtückisch, ruft den Mord aus und zwingt damit Faust zur sofortigen Flucht.

Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes that Dorian's beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life.Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences, while staying young and beautiful; all the while his portrait ages and records every sin...Die Handlung setzt mit einem Gespräch zweier junger Männer ein, Lord Henry Wotton (genannt Lord Henry oder Harry), eines gebildeten Dandys, und des erfolgreichen Malers Basil Hallward. Ort des Geschehens ist Basils Atelier, das sich in einen Garten öffnet. Es geht um Kunst und Selbstinszenierung.Hallwards im Atelier aufgestelltes Ganzkörper-Porträt des schönen, jungen Dorian Gray rührt Lord Henrys Neugier, so dass Hallward von seiner ersten, ergreifenden Begegnung mit dem jungen Mann zu erzählen beginnt, die ihn an „den Rand einer Lebenskrise“ gebracht habe. Dorian Gray verleite ihn zu einer „neuen Kunstrichtung, die alle Leidenschaft der romantischen, alle Vollkommenheit des griechischen Geistes in sich einschließen soll“.
