Am Beispiel des Deutschen Museums in München wird erstmalig die Geschichte von Dioramen untersucht. Das Diorama als illusionistische Inszenierung dient oft dazu, einen Kontext für Ausstellungsobjekte herzustellen. Dieser Band beleuchtet den überraschend großen Variantenreichtum dioramatischer Formen erstmals spartenübergreifend: Die Autorinnen und Autoren analysieren nicht nur ihre lange Geschichte anhand bekannter Beispiele aus Naturkunde und Ethnologie, sondern zeigen auch, wie archäologische, technische und naturwissenschaftliche Museen und Sammlungen mit den Potenzialen von Dioramen umgehen. Der überraschende Variantenreichtum dioramatischer Formen wird repräsentativ am Beispiel des Deutschen Museums in München untersucht. Dabei kommen wissenschaftliche und handwerkliche Herausforderungen bei Konzeption und Bau ebenso zur Sprache wie die für viele Museen zentralen Fragen nach Authentizität, Nachahmung und Didaktik.

Eric Rentschler argues that cinema in the Third Reich emanated from a Ministry of Illusion and not from a Ministry of Fear. His analysis of the sophisticated media culture of this period demonstrates in an unprecedented way the potent and destructive powers of fascination and fantasy.

Um Verzerrungen im historischen Diskurs zu vermeiden, wird von postkolonialen Theoretikern und literarischen Autoren verstärkt angemahnt, die Historiographie einer radikalen Revision zu unterziehen. Für die Rekonstruktion der karibischen Geschichte wird der Literatur dahingehend einzigartiges Potenzial beigemessen, dass sich durch Einsatz der Konvention der Fiktionalität die Möglichkeit ergibt, den Sklaven nachträglich eine eigene Stimme zu verleihen. Insbesondere in den Romanen der drei englischsprachigen karibischen Autoren John Hearne, Fred D'Aguiar und Caryl Phillips spiegeln sich die komplexen Wechselbeziehungen zwischen den Themenbereichen Sprache, Religion beziehungsweise Spiritualität, Körperlichkeit und Sexualität sowie gender. Außerdem führen die fiktionalen Einzelschicksale vor Augen, wie eng die bisher eher als Einzelphänomene erforschten Reaktionsmuster auf die omnipräsente Alteritätserfahrung im karibischen Raum miteinander verwoben waren. So treten die prototypischen Formen der Ausübung von Gewalt, der Bildung von Stereotypen, des Versuches einer ideologischen Rechtfertigung des eigenen Verhaltens und der Bildung hybrider kultureller Elemente nie isoliert auf, vielmehr existieren paradoxe Elemente gleichzeitig und unauflöslich nebeneinander. Anders wäre es nicht zu erklären, dass trotz der von starken Machtasymmetrien und einem hohen Maß an Fremdheit geprägten Bedingungen eine wechselseitige Akkulturation stattfinden konnte.

"The question whether God is a subject for psychoanalysis is something that must be tackled at the very outset of our enterprise. However as we pay attention to it, the question reveals itself to be the product of a tension that exists between those who believe in the existence of God and those who do not. Sigmund Freud, by the very act of making God a subject of metapsychological deconstruction, took ... a resolutely atheistic position...the Illusion monograph is a literary battlefield where "Freud, the Atheist" is involved in a bloody combat with "Freud, the Believer"! His pupils and followers adhered "religiously" to the arguments and declarations he made in The Future of Illusion. The contributors to this book are robust atheists as well as firm believers. There are also those who seem decidedly uncommitted. They come from different regions of the world, represent different ethno-religious backgrounds, and speak in different psychoanalytic tongues. The questions they raise largely pertain to what literal and metaphorical, conscious and unconscious, adaptive and maladaptive, self-soothing and masochistic, and generous and sadistic uses belief in God can be, has been, and is still being put to. Clearly, Freud's intrapsychic "debate" on whether God exists or not has mushroomed into concerns of much larger scope. Knowing his unflappable willingness to learn, grow, and change his opinions, it is safe to assume that this smorgasbord of conceptual diversity would have been welcomed by Freud, even if he chose to use it for arguing even more forcefully for his position!" -- Taken from the Introduction by Salman Akhtar

Free Will And Illusion

Saul Smilansky presents an original treatment of the problem of free will, which lies at the heart of morality and human self-understanding. He maintains that we have most of the resources we need for a proper understanding of the problem; and the key to it is the role played by illusion. The major traditional philosophical approaches are inadequate, Smilansky argues: their partial insights need to be integrated into a hybrid view, which he calls Fundamental Dualism. Common views about justice, responsibility, human worth, and related notions are radically misguided, and the absurd looms large. We do, however, find some justification for enlightened moral views, and grounding for some of our most cherished views of human nature. The bold and perhaps disturbing claim of Free Will and Illusion is that we could not live adequately with a complete awareness of the truth about human freedom: illusion lies at the centre of the human condition. The necessity of illusion is seen to follow from the basic elements of the free will issue, helping keep our moral and psychological worlds intact. Smilansky offers the challenge of recognizing the centrality of illusion and trying to free ourselves to some extent from it; this is not only a philosophical challenge, but a moral and psychological one as well.

Identifying quickly illusion with deception, we tend to oppose it to the reality of life. However, investigating in this collection of essays illusion's functions in the Arts, which thrives upon illusion and yet maintains its existential roots and meaningfullness in the real, we might wonder about the nature of reality itself. Does not illusion open the seeming confines of factual reality into horizons of imagination which transform it? Does it not, like art, belong essentially to the makeup of human reality?
