Niranjan Ramakrishnan examines the surprising extent to which Gandhi's writings still provide insight into current global tensions and the assumptions that drive them. This book explores how ideas Gandhi expressed over a century ago can be applied today to issues from terrorism to the environment, globalization to the 'Clash of Civilizations.' In particular it looks at Gandhi's emphasis on the small, the local, and the human – an emphasis that today begins to appear practical, attractive, and even inescapable. Written in an accessible style invoking examples from everyday happenings familiar to all, this concise volume reintroduces Gandhi to today's audiences in relevant terms.

Revisiting Metaphors In International Relations Theory

This book presents an analysis of how metaphors are essential elements in the study of international relations. It acknowledges the fact that theory and practice in international relations often rest on common metaphorical concepts which have implications for the ways people around the world pursue their lives. Because of the increased attention metaphors have received as integral elements in political discourse, there is a need to investigate metaphorical concepts that are not neutral in their implications for understanding international relations. Inasmuch as government policy is shaped by metaphorical concepts that originate in the academic realm, and given that scholarly works are therefore partially involved in inspiring policy, the author subjects a range of metaphors in international relations theory to critical interrogation.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Eberhard-Karls-Universitat Tubingen, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Bald nachdem Heinrich von Kleist (1777-1811) die Penthesilea abgeschlossen und das Guiskard-Fragment niedergeschrieben hatte, begann er im Herbst 1807 am Kathchen von Heilbronn zu arbeiten. Die Arbeit am Kathchen zog sich uber Jahre hin. Zwei Fragmente von Kleists Kathchen von Heilbronn erschienen Juni 1808 und Anfang 1809 in der Zeitschrift Phobus." 1808 bot Kleist das Stuck dem Berliner Nationaltheater an, doch erst im Jahre 1810 brachte er es zum Druck. Die Urauffuhrung fand schliesslich am 17. Marz 1810 in Wien statt. Im Dezember desselben Jahres erschien der Essay Ueber das Marionettentheater in vier Folgen in den Berliner Abendblattern." Beide Werke scheinen auf den ersten Blick nichts gemeinsam zu haben, Form und Handlung konnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein. Doch bei genauer Betrachtung kann an der Figur Kathchens die Kleistsche Auffassung von Grazie erkannt werden, welche er in Ueber das Marionettentheater entwickelt hat. In beiden Werken Kleists wird einem mechanischen Wesen Grazie zugesprochen, unter der Voraussetzung ihrer Geistlosigkeit. Doch negiert Kleist damit nicht einen wichtigen Aspekt des Menschen des menschlichen Daseins, die intellektuelle Einsicht und Selbstdetermination? Cogito, ergo sum? Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit werden zunachst kurz die Bedeutung der Grazie und der Marionette erlautert. In einem zweiten Abschnitt werden die Kriterien der Grazie anhand der Marionette und der Grund fur den Verlust desselben aufgezeigt. Zum Abschluss sollen die bereits aufgefuhrten Rahmenbedingung auf Kathchen sowie auf Graf vom Strahl bezogen werden."
