Konstellationen der Souveränität in Europa. Les constellations de la souveraineté en Europe

Nicht allein der Brexit, auch die bereits länger anhaltenden Krisen in der Finanz-, Währungs- oder Migrationspolitik lassen sich als Anzeichen dafür deuten, dass die Frage nach der Souveränität in der EU ungelöst ist. Während nationalistische und populistische Strömungen das Projekt der europäischen Integration als Angriff auf das Prinzip der Volkssouveränität verunglimpfen, verteidigen EU-Befürworter den Integrationsprozess als einen erfolgreichen Modus der gemeinschaftlichen Ausübung nationaler Souveränität. Inwiefern ist der populistische Verweis auf Volkssouveränität legitim? Und inwiefern gefährden Populismus und Nationalismus durch eben diesen Topos die Demokratie in Europa? Die Ergebnisse eines deutsch-französischen Colloquiums behandeln die zahlreichen Aspekte dieses Themas, indem sie die tagespolitisch drängenden Fragen in einen größeren Kontext rücken. Dabei werden sowohl rechtswissenschaftliche als auch ideengeschichtliche und empirische Dimensionen des Themas beleuchtet. Mit Beiträgen von Emiliano Grossman, Felix Heidenreich, Karsten Schubert, Nina Elena Eggers, Aliénor Ballangé, Eva-Maria Schäfferle und einem Gespräch mit Pierre Rosanvallon.

Guidebook to the Constellations

Telescopic Sights, Tales, and Myths

Author: Phil Simpson

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 1441969411

Category: Science

Page: 863

View: 9963

This handbook is a guide to exploring the classical night sky and its wonderful telescopic sights. All 88 officially recognized constellations are presented in natural groups which are related by their origin and location in the sky. Each group is explained by a fascinating story which tells what each constellation represents, how it appears in the sky, and why the other constellations of the group are close by, or related in some other manner. Some of these stories are classical myths which show how and why ancient cultures saw the constellations as related groups. Others are about more modern astronomers who sought recognition by filling in the gaps between the ancient constellations with inventions of their own. Both types of stories are crafted to make the constellation groups memorable, so that amateur astronomers can not only locate and recognize the constellations more easily, but also be able to pinpoint the celestial objects they contain more quickly. Specific instructions are given for finding each constellation, how to spell and pronounce the constellation and star names, plus the origins of the star names. Finder charts show each constellation group and a large area of sky around the group. These charts also indicate pointer stars which aid in finding the constellations. More detailed charts show how each constellation figure is visualized through simple line drawings. For each constellation, there is a table of about 10 to 30 telescopic objects selected to include a wide range of difficulty. Some can be glimpsed with the unaided eye, others require a 12 or 14 inch telescope. All the most prominent telescopic objects are included, plus a varied selection of interesting, but much more difficult objects. The tables include each object’s celestial coordinates, type, size, brightness, other information specific to each type of object, and a recommendation of the appropriate telescope size needed for good viewing. There are also photographs of constellations and telescopic objects, detailed locator charts for the hard-to-find objects, and plots of binary star orbital motions. The same charts used to show the constellation figures are repeated, with the addition of symbols indicating the locations of all the selected telescopic objects. An index and seven appendices help the user find specific objects or classes of objects.

Sieht so der Roman des 21. Jahrhunderts aus? Ein Porträt des Hackers als junger Mann und eine schwindelerregende tour de force in die allernächste Zukunft des Menschen. Rasant und rasend klug erzählt von Pola Oloixarac, der vielleicht umstrittensten Autorin der lateinamerikanischen Literatur. Zu Beginn der 1980er Jahre kommen sich in der subtropischen Sommerhitze Brasiliens eine Anthropologin und ein Flugzeugingenieur näher. Das Resultat dieser Verbindung von jüdisch-argentinischer und brasilianischer DNA heißt Cassio Liberman Brandão da Silva: Der Held ist geboren. Sozialisiert mit Castle Wolfenstein und Musik von den Dead Kennedys, erweist sich Cassio früh als Wunderkind der Kryptografie, dessen Viren in der Hacker-Szene als Kunstwerke betrachtet werden. Doch wie so oft bei Genies ohne Talent zur Entschlüsselung ihrer Mitmenschen, vereinsamt er zusehends. Der Programmierjob im Start-up ist eine Beleidigung für sein Gehirn und der Untergrundruhm vergessen – bis aus dem Nerd schließlich ein Weltenretter wird: Als Cassio genetische und digitale Daten zu mischen beginnt, erkennt er eine Wahrheit, die andere Forscher lange vor seiner Zeit bereits erahnt hatten. Auch Pola Oloixarac mischt in Kryptozän den Abenteuer- mit dem Bildungsroman und schafft, angereichert mit einer Prise Science-Fiction und abgründigem Humor à la Houellebecq, den ersten Hackerroman mit philosophischem Tiefgang.

Ancient astrologers declared stars "fixed" to distinguish them from wandering stars, which they called planets. This book is the distillation of two thousand years of astrological research. It is a comprehensive survey of fixed stars in natal & mundane astrology, the stars & constellations of medieval magic, and fixed stars in astrometeorology. Robson gives their traditional meanings & their effects when combined with planets & angles. Convenient tables & a comprehensive index make this volume easy to use. Included are some 110 named stars, as well as 48 ancient constellations & 60 modern ones. Arabic, Chinese & Hindu lunar mansions are also discussed. Since its first publication in 1923, this book has been the classic on fixed stars, the one to which everyone since has referred. About the author: Vivian Erwood Robson, 1890 - 1942, was a librarian by trade. Like many librarians he had a natural bent for research, and, in his particular case, astrology. He studied ancient astrologers closely, including Ptolemy & William Lilly. His books on fixed stars, electional astrology & relationships are 20th century classics. ar

Uncharted Constellations

Asterisms, Single-Source and Rebrands

This book compiles an array of interesting constellations that fell by the wayside before the IAU established the modern canon of constellations. That decision left out lesser known ones whose history is nevertheless interesting, but at last author John Barentine is giving them their due. This book is a companion to "The Lost Constellations", highlighting the more obscure configurations. The 16 constellations found in this volume fall into one or more of three broad categories: asterims, such as the Big Dipper in Ursa Major; single-sourced constellations introduced on surviving charts by a cartographer perhaps currying the favor of sponsors; and re-brands, new figures meant to displace existing constellations, often for an ideological reason. All of them reveal something unique about the development of humanity's map of the sky.

Family Constellations

A Practical Guide to Uncovering the Origins of Family Conflict

Author: Joy Manne, Ph.D.

Publisher: North Atlantic Books

ISBN: 1583944869

Category: Psychology

Page: 80

Mapping out a “family constellation,” explains Dr. Joy Manné, encompasses exploring previous powerful life events from accidents to adoptions and accessing the deepest dynamics in that family system. This process helps us recognize and then resolve deeply seated family patterns. For example, in order to understand a person’s inability to trust, the family history of betrayal must be uncovered and released. These insights replace resentment with respect, pain with understanding.Dr. Manné uses the knowledge gained from her own practice as well as her educational experiences with Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellations therapy, to clearly describe this technique. Most family constellation sessions are carried out in a group setting, with the facilitator first seeking clarity regarding the issue or problem the client has come to work out. Representatives are then chosen from among the group and the constellation is set up and worked in until it comes to resolution. This may be followed by a closing ritual and advice about how to integrate what the constellation has revealed. Through the use of real-life examples of family constellations, Dr. Manné makes this increasingly popular practice understandable and relatable.

Constellations of Miro, Breton

During the early days of the Second World War, the Catalan painter Joan Miro created a startling series of twenty-three gouaches, his Constellations, works redolent with the nightmare of contemporary events. In 1958 the French poet Andre Breton composed his own "Constellations," a set of hermetic prose poems meant to "illustrate"-that is, not simply to shed light on, but to lend luster to-Miro's paintings, and to resume a peripatetic dialogue about exile. In "Constellations of Miro, Breton" Paul Hammond unravels some of the mysteries of the call-and-response of these two Surrealists by reading the pictures against the poetry, the poetry against the pictures, and both against the madness of a history that none of us has left that far behind. Featured in this edition are reproductions of the complete series of Joan Miro's Constellations and a translation of Andre Breton's "proses paralleles." Also included is Andre Breton's essay, "Constellations of Joan Miro," as well as documentary illustrations and photographs. About the Author Paul Hammond is the author of Marvellous Melies, "French Undressing, Upon the Pun: Dual Meaning in Words and Pictures (with Patrick Hughes), and a monograph on Luis Bunuel's L'Age d'or. He is the editor and translator of The Shadow and Its Shadow:Surrealist Writings on the Cinema (a new edition published by City Lights Books in Fall 2000), and the coeditor, with Ian Breakwell, of Seeing in the Dark: A Compendium of Cinemagoing and Brought to Book: The Balance of Books and Life. His translations include Whatever by Michel Houellebecq and The Virgin of the Hitmen by Fernando Vallejo.
