Anfang der 1920er Jahre, ausgelöst durch das Aufkommen einer sozialistischen Bewegung nach der russischen Oktoberrevolution, entstand in Japan ein Diskurs über die sozialpolitische Rolle des Intellektuellen, der sich bis in die 1970er Jahre hineinzog. Angeführt wurde er von marxistisch und humanistisch orientierten Literaturkritikern und Schriftstellern, die sich Fragen nach der sozialen Verantwortung der Literatur und der diesbezüglichen Rolle der Intelligenz stellten. Der japanische Intellektuellenbegriff ist im Rahmen dieses Diskurses vor dem geschichtlichen und gesellschaftspolitischen Kontext sukzessiv neu geformt worden. Er ist Zeugnis einer steten Auseinandersetzung, gespiegelt in differenzierten Begriffen, was ein Intellektueller sei, und welchen Platz dieser in der Gesellschaft einnehmen solle. Anhand einer Diskursanalyse repräsentativer Debatten zwischen 1920 und 1970 unter Einbezugnahme von Bourdieus Theorie des literarischen Feldes wird die Entwicklung, die Rolle und die Selbstwahrnehmung des modernen japanischen Intellektuellen in der Zwischen- und Nachkriegszeit des 20. Jahrhunderts gezeichnet und ein Profil des Schriftstellers als Intellektueller definiert.

The Science Communication Challenge explores and discusses the whys – as distinct from the hows – of science communication. Arguing that the dominant science communication paradigm is didactic, it makes the case for a political category of science communication, aimed at furthering discussions of science-related public affairs and making room for civilized and reasonable exchanges between different points of view. As civil societies and knowledge societies, modern democratic societies are confronted with the challenge of accommodating both the scientific logic of truth-seeking and the classical political logic of pluralism. The didactic science communication paradigm, however, is unsuited to dealing with substantial disagreement. Therefore, it is also unsuited to facilitate communication about the steadily increasing number of science-related political issues. Using insights from an array of academic fields, The Science Communication Challenge explores the possible origins of the didactic paradigm, connecting it to particular understandings of knowledge, politics and the public and to the widespread assumption of a science-versus-politics dichotomy. The book offers a critique of that assumption and suggests that science and politics be seen as substantially different activities, suited to dealing with different kinds of questions – and to different varieties of science communication.

Despite incredible political upheavals and a minimal national history of film production, movies such as Come Back, Africa (1959), uDeliwe (1975), and Fools (1998) have taken on an iconic status within South African culture. In this much-needed study, author Litheko Modisane delves into the public critical engagements around old 'renegade' films and newer ones, revealing instructive details both in the production and the public lives of South African movies oriented around black social experiences. This illuminates the complex nature of cinema in modern public life, enriching established methodologies by expanding the cultural and conceptual boundaries of film as a phenomenon of textual circulation.

Annotation. Where schools in the past used to introduce young people to the norms and values of society, today it seems that schools are there primarily to deal with students' difficult behavior. The school has become a course in Life Skills. Students have to be taught to control their behavior. This shift in priorities has been fed largely by experts in education and other fields, and in so doing they have often pitted schools against parents. This is one of the dangers of the trend, but this kind of therapeutic education also leaves insufficient time and resources for teachers to intellectually stimulate their students.

The Oxford Handbook Of Political Ideologies

This is the first comprehensive volume to offer a state of the art investigation both of the nature of political ideologies and of their main manifestations. The diversity of ideology studies is represented by a mixture of the range of theories that illuminate the field, combined with an appreciation of the changing complexity of concrete ideologies and the emergence of new ones. Ideologies, however, are always with us. The Handbook is divided into three sections: The first is divided into three sections: The first reflects some of the latest thinking about the development of ideology on an historical dimension, from the standpoints of conceptual history, Marx studies, social science theory and history, and leading schools of continental philosophy. The second includes some of the most recent interpretations and theories of ideology, all of which are sympathetic in their own ways to its exploration and close investigation, even when judiciously critical of its social impact. This section contains many of the more salient contemporary accounts of ideology. The third focuses on the leading ideological families and traditions, as well as on some of their cultural and geographical manifestations, incorporating both historical and contemporary perspectives. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, bringing the latest approaches and understandings to their task. The Handbook will position the study of ideologies in the mainstream of political theory and political analysis and will attest to its indispensability both to courses on political theory and to scholars who wish to take their understanding of ideologies in new directions.
