More than half of the world’s population now live in urban areas, and cities provide the setting for contemporary challenges such as population growth, mass tourism and unequal access to socio-economic opportunities. Urban Heritage, Development and Sustainability examines the impact of these issues on urban heritage, considering innovative approaches to managing developmental pressures and focusing on how taking an ethical, inclusive and holistic approach to urban planning and heritage conservation may create a stronger basis for the sustainable growth of cities in the future. This volume is a timely analysis of current theories and practises in urban heritage, with particular reference to the conflict between, and potential reconciliation of, conservation and development goals. A global range of case studies detail a number of distinct practical approaches to heritage on international, national and local scales. Chapters reveal the disjunctions between international frameworks and national implementation and assess how internationally agreed concepts can be misused to justify unsustainable practices or to further economic globalisation and political nationalism. The exclusion of many local communities from development policies, and the subsequent erosion of their cultural heritage, is also discussed, with the collection emphasising the importance of ‘grass roots’ heritage and exploring more inclusive and culturally responsive conservation strategies. Contributions from an international group of authors, including practitioners as well as leading academics, deliver a broad and balanced coverage of this topic. Addressing the interests of both urban planners and heritage specialists, Urban Heritage, Development and Sustainability is an important addition to the field that will encourage further discourse.

This book examines the commemoration of 9/11 in American memorial culture.

Eine Kurze Geschichte Der Deutschen Philosophie

Vittorio Hösle bietet in diesem Buch eine Übersicht über die deutsche Philosophiegeschichte vom Mittelalter bis zur Gegenwart. Er beginnt mit einer Erörterung der Frage, inwieweit es überhaupt legitim ist, den Gang der deutschen Philosophiegeschichte von den restlichen europäischen Philosophiegeschichten abzusondern, und endet mit verhaltener Skepsis hinsichtlich des Überlebens deutscher Philosophie im 21. Jahrhundert. Der Sonderweg deutscher Philosophie beginnt im Mittelalter mit Meister Eckhart und Nicolaus Cusanus. Eine neue Pointierung wird durch die Reformation gewiesen, die gerade wegen ihrer antiphilosophischen Polemik einen Neubeginn des Denkens ermöglicht und die für Deutschland so charakteristische Verbindung von Philosophie und Philologie hervorbringt. Leibniz, Kant und die Fundierung der Geisteswissenschaften im späten 18. Jahrhundert sind Voraussetzungen der Synthese des Deutschen Idealismus, auf die mit Schopenhauer, Feuerbach, Marx und Nietzsche eine rasche Auflösung des Christentums ebenso wie der bisherigen Vernunftmetaphysik folgt. Die Neubegründungen der Philosophie bei Frege und im Logischen Positivismus, bei den Neukantianern und in der Phänomenologie Husserls werden als die wirkungsmächtigsten Versuche des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts dargestellt; auf sie folgt die Philosophie des Nationalsozialismus (Martin Heidegger, Arnold Gehlen, Carl Schmitt) und schließlich diejenige der Bundesrepublik (Hans-Georg Gadamer, Karl-Otto Apel, Jürgen Habermas und Hans Jonas). Das Buch ist eine auf gründlicher Kenntnis der Primärquellen beruhende Gesamtinterpretation der deutschen Philosophie. Zugleich versteht es sich als Rückblick auf den «deutschen Geist».
