Aldous Huxley: The Political Thought of a Man of Letters argues that Huxley is not a man of letters engaged in politics, but a political thinker who chooses literature to spread his ideas. His preference for the dystopian genre is due to his belief in the tremendous impact of dystopia on twentieth-century political thought. His political thinking is not systematic, but this does not stop his analysis from supplying elements that are original and up-to-date, and that represent fascinating contributions of political theory in all the spheres that he examines from anti-Marxism to anti-positivism, from political realism to elitism, from criticism of mass society to criticism of totalitarianism, from criticism of ideologies to the future of liberal democracy, from pacifism to ecological communitarianism. Huxley clearly grasped the unsolved issues of contemporary liberalism, and the importance of his influence on many twentieth-century and present-day political thinkers ensures that his ideas remain indispensable in the current liberal-democratic debate. Brave New World is without doubt Huxley’s most successful political manifesto. While examining the impassioned struggle for the development of all human potentialities, it yet manages not to close the doors definitively on the rebirth of utopia in the age of dystopia.

The present boom in popular history is not unprecedented. The contributions to this volume investigate peaks of historical interest which favour popular approaches from around 1800 to the present. They analyse the media, genres and institutions through which historical knowledge has been disseminated - from artefacts to the archive, from poetry to photography, from music to murals, and from periodicals to popular TV series. They ask how major traditions in the popular imagery of the past have evolved and changed over time. Cultural contexts covered in the book include Western and Southern Europe, the United States and West Africa. Contributors come from a range of disciplines, including history, literary and cultural studies, musicology as well as social and cultural anthropology.

This edited book covers many topics in musicological literature, gathering various approaches to music studies that encapsulate the vivid relation music has to society. It focusses on repertoires and geographical areas that have not previously been well frequented in musicology. As readers will see, music has many roles to play in society. Music can be a generator of social phenomena, or a result of them; it can enhance or activate social actions, or simply co-habit with them. Above all, music has a stable position within society, in that it actively participates in it. Music can either describe or prescribe social aspects; musicians may have a certain position/role in society (e.g., the “popstar” as fashion leader, spokesman for political issues, etc.). Depending on the type of society, music may have a certain “meaning” or “function” (music does not mean the same thing everywhere in the world). Lastly, music can define a society, and it is not uncommon for it to best define a particular historical moment. Case-studies in this work provide visibility for musical cultures that are rarely exposed in the dominant musicological discourse. Several contributions combine musicological analysis with "insider-musician" points of view. Some essays in the collection address the cultural clash between certain types of music/musicians and the respective institutional counterparts, while certain contributing authors draw on experimental research findings. Throughout this book we see how musics are socially significant, and - at the same time - that societies are musically significant too. Thus the book will appeal to musicologists, cultural scholars and semioticians, amongst others.

La creatività all’interno del processo di formazione dei bambini ha svariate ragioni per essere riconosciuta come opportunità importante di crescita e formazione del pensiero autonomo. La storia è una complessa scienza sociale che prova a spiegarci il divenire del mondo e diventa essenziale, soprattutto per i bambini della scuola primaria, comprendere quanto del pensiero divergente e convergente è presente nei mutamenti dell’umanità nel tempo e nella loro ricostruzione come conoscenza storiografica. Il presente volume vuole proporre un’indagine sulla possibilità di coniugare la creatività all’apprendimento della storia nella scuola primaria, offrendo spunti concreti di lavoro in classe e idee per costruire progetti didattici più creativi nell’ambito della disciplina.

Questo Manuale di pedagogia e di didattica – in continuità con il Manuale di pedagogia generale di cui riprende i nuclei tematici e problematici fondamentali – presenta una rinnovata riflessione sulla struttura epistemologica e sugli orientamenti più attuali della ricerca pedagogica e didattica. Ciò alla luce delle teorie della complessità e delle emergenze storico-culturali degli ultimi anni. Le categorie della differenza, del pluralismo metodologico, dello sviluppo formativo-trasformativo, della ibridazione tra i saperi e tra le culture, dell'apertura alla totalità delle scienze umane, dell'integrazione degli alfabeti – così come dei luoghi e dei tempi dell'educazione – propongono al lettore un'idea di pedagogia critica e problematica, mobile e in continuo divenire.

The murder of an Islamic cleric, loyal to the Soviet Union, has unexpected repercussions in this novel set in Gorbachev's Russia. The cast of characters includes a middle-aged judge driven by curiosity and the intellectual challenge of his work; a nervous and neurotic young historian willing to run all manner of risks to uncover the state crimes of the forties; a nerdy, well-educated and good-natured young journalist motivated principally by the desire to enjoy life and not dwell on the miseries of the past; and a KGB general once responsible for some of the purges. But the greatest protagonist of them all: the Russian public, as they emerge from one dismal reality and hurtle unknowingly towards another.
