A. S. Neill was arguably the most famous child educator of the twentieth century. He was certainly the most controversial. All over the world, countless parents and teachers have been shocked, delighted or inspired by his subversive ideas about education, or by a visit to ‘that dreadful school’ which continues to this day – Summerhill. First published in 1983, this sympathetic but critical exploration of his iconoclastic ideas and personality is the result of interviews with two hundred ex-pupils, parents and teachers about life at Summerhill, and of the practicality of Neill’s philosophy about child freedom. Jonathan Croall has also drawn on many unpublished letters and documents, which help to illuminate Neill’s personal struggles, and his analysis and friendship with Homer Lane, Wilhelm Stekel and Wilhelm Reich. The result is a fascinating and revealing portrait of a remarkable man who, in his absolute determination to be ‘on the side of the child’, remained in permanent opposition to the adult world.

The first full-length study of Scottish literature using a post-devolutionary understanding of postcolonial studies. Using a comparative model and spanning over two hundred years of literary history from the 18th Century to the contemporary, this collection of 19 new essays by some of the leading figures in the field presents a range of perspectives on Scottish and postcolonial writing. The essays explore Scotland's position on both sides of the colonial divide and also its role as instigator of a devolutionary process with potential consequences for British Imperialism.

Gegenstand der Untersuchung ist Nietzsches Beschaftigung mit den Naturwissenschaften, angefangen bei seinem ersten Buch uber die Tragodie bis hin zu Nietzsches Frage nach den Ursprungen der Logik (aus dem Nicht-Logischen) und unserem Verlangen nach Wahrheit (in seiner Entgegensetzung von Unwahrheit und Luge). Weit davon entfernt, Irrationalist oder Relativist zu sein, entwickelte Nietzsche eine radikal "kritische "Wissenschaftsphilosophie. In diesem Buch wird die Wissenschaftsphilosophie Nietzsches aus der Perspektive einer Befragung des Wesens der Wissenschaft unter der Optik der Kunst betrachtet. Dies schliesst die Frage danach ein, wie Wissenschaftstheorie innerhalb der fast ausschliesslich analytischen Selbstbeschrankung ihrer traditionellen Rezeption gegenwartig betrieben wird. Letztlich wird Nietzsches Philosophie der Wissenschaft als eine Philosophie von Kunst (im Sinne von Kunstfertigkeit und Technik, aber auch von Kultur und Kreativitat) und Leben entwickelt. Indem es die einschlagigen Primartexte Nietzsches sowie eine umfassende Auswahl der Sekundarliteratur uber Nietzsche wie auch uber die zeitgenossische Wissenschaftstheorie und -philosophie heranzieht, bietet dieses Buch nicht nur eine der elaboriertesten Darstellungen von Nietzsches Wissenschaftsphilosophie, die heute verfugbar sind, sondern schafft auch ein umfassendes und neues Verstandnis von Nietzsches Denken und - unmittelbar damit verbunden - von seinem Stil."
