Pursuit of Happiness and the American Regime
203,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Declaration of Independence claims that individuals need liberty to pursue happiness, but provides little guidance on the 'what' of happiness. Happiness studies and liberal theory are incomplete guides. Happiness studies offer insights into what makes people happy but happiness policy risks becoming doctrinaire. Liberal theory is better on personal liberty, but weak on the 'what' of happiness. My argument is that American novelists are surer guides on the pursuit of happiness. Treated as political thinkers, my book offers a close reading of four American novelists, Tom Wolfe, Walker Percy, Edith Wharton, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and their critique of the pursuit of happiness. With a critical and friendly eye, they present the shortcomings of pursuing happiness in a liberal nation but also present alternatives and correctives possible in America. Our novelists point us toward each other in friendship as our greatest resource to guide us towards happiness.

The Years of Grief and Laughter

Description: Nineteen hundred years ago, someone called the Beloved Disciple told stories about Jesus and his days on earth, including reports of what Jesus did and said. These stories had been todl for decades, but then someone took the stories and wrote them down, turning them from oral tradition into the book we know as the Gospel of John. Scholars have long concentrated on the content of this Fourth Gospel, analyzing how it differs from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke and wondering how the different Gospels relate to the Jesus of history. Thatcher builds on all this previous scholarship to as new and exciting questions: Why was this Gospel written? Why would these followers of Jesus turn the oral stories into written Gospel? In exploring the reason for writing the Fourth Gospel, Thatcher focuses on how stories and written texts operate to reflect and to create memory with in groups of people. He uncovers how early Christians strove to remember Jesus in the decades after his ministry and how Christians came into conflict with one another about which memories were best. With this interest in the social memory of early Christians, Thatcher provides original insights into the Gospel of John and shows new answers to old questions. Writing in an engaging and accessible style, Thatcher uses numerous diagrams and modern parallels to show how Gospel texts shape the memory and identity of Christian communities, not only in the ancient world bu today as well. Endorsements: ''Tom Thatcher effectively rewrites the agenda for the study of the Gospel of John for the next decade. Dotted with diagrams, drawings, and numerous contemporary examples, Thatcher carefully leads readers into new and unexplored territory. He works with contemporary ideas of social memory and builds on the thesis that we discover the fourth evangelist's message in oral rather than written form. He presents us with new understandings of history and of the purpose of the Gospel of John.'' --Robert Kysar, Bandy Professor Emeritus of Preaching and New Testament, Emory University ''This may be the first treatment of the fourth gospel that takes into account its predominantly oral communication environment. In a carefully crafted argument, Thatcher uses Maurice Halbwach's suggestive reflections on social memory to develop a series of provocative speculations about what lead from Johannine tradition to a written gospel. This book is sure to stir up some rethinking of the relation between the composition of John's Gospel and the social memory of the Johannine community in which it was embedded.'' --Richard A. Horsley, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and the Study of Religion, University of Massachusetts, Boston ''Rejecting a lengthy developmental composition history, Thatcher confronts the text - and us - with the fundamental question: why did John write, and write this kind of gospel? Unsettling in the best possible sense, this book offers a new point of departure for Johannine studies. It is my hope that the new perspectives Thatcher has introduced will initiate a genuine reevaluation of our thinking about one of the most intriguing texts in early Christianity.'' --Werner H. Kelber, Isla Carroll and Percy E. Turner Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Rice University About the Contributor(s): Tom Thatcher is Professor of Biblical Studies at Cincinnati Christian University. He is a founding member of the John, Jesus, and History project and the author/editor of numerous books and articles on the Gospel of John, including What We Have Heard from the Beginning and John, Jesus, and the Renewal of Israel.

Romancing Fascism
42,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Romancing Fascism argues that intellectual responsibility can only be safeguarded if criticism is mobilised both as a poetic and as a critically enlightened endeavour. In this analysis of allegory as a function of modernity, what is made clear is the difficulty, if not impossibility, of definitively determining the genealogical antecedents of intellectual trends, particularly those considered pernicious to clear thinking. Thus Kerr-Koch takes a wide-ranging approach to the analysis of allegory as it is treated by three controversial writers whose works flank the 19th and 20th centuries, the middle and late periods of what we call modernity-Walter Benjamin, Paul de Man and Percy Bysshe Shelley. These three writers have been chosen because they have been at some point recuperated for a theory of 'postmodernism', a term that for some theorists represents liberal free play, and for others represents a lack of rigour and a pernicious corruption of thought.

Mary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels. After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein. It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality, that a full-length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley's letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published. The well-meaning attempts of Mary Shelley's son and daughter-in-law to 'Victorianise' her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a more conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest. Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley's works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression. The eclipse of Mary Shelley's reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement. She was seen as a one-novel author, if that. In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value. Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated. Shelley's recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized; after Percy's death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions: 'I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea'. Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.
