Sapphira Und Die Sklavin

Author: Willa Cather

Publisher: Goldmann Wilhelm Verlag Gmbh

ISBN: 9781400039401

Category: Fiction

Page: 256

View: 5124

"Aus der Sicht von heute liest sich "Sapphira und die Sklavin" als ein historisches Dokument--mehr noch als zur Zeit des Erscheinens, 1940, als in den amerikanischen Suedstaaten immerhin noch strenge Rassentrennung herrschte. Doch schon damals sah die Kritik in dem Roman die Wiedergabe einer Gesellschaft, Kultur und Soziologie, in der ein Konflikt von Moralvorstellungen und Philosophien eine innere, immer dichter angezogene Sprungfeder erzeugt. Willa Cather will den Konflikt darstellen, nicht ueber Gut und Boese entscheiden und kein Urteil faellen." (Sabina Lietzmann) "From today's view "Sapphira und die Sklavin" can be seen as a historic document -- more so than at its publishing date, 1940, when there was still strict division of races in the American South. However, by its publishing date, this novel was a criticism of society, culture and sociology, in which a conflict of moral images and philosophies create a tightening elastic spring. Willa Cather wants to demonstrate the conflictwithout deciding about Good and Bad and without passing judgement." (Sabina Lietzmann)

Dieses auf vier Bände angelegte Werk ist eine Geschichte der "Institution Universität" in Europa von ihrer Entstehung im Mittelalter bis in die heutige Zeit und zugleich eine vergleichende Geschichte der europäischen Universitäten sowie der außereuropäischen Universitäten, die nach europäischem Muster gegründet worden sind. Es wird auf Initiative der europäischen Rektorenkonferenz (CRE), der über 500 wissenschaftliche Hochschulen in 27 europäischen Staaten angehören, von einem internationalen Komitee namhafter Wissenschaftler unter dem Vorsitz von Walter Rüegg (Schweiz) herausgegeben. Absicht dieses Gemeinschaftswerkes ist es, die gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen und Aufgaben, die Merkmale geistiger und institutioneller Identität, die Strukturen, Gestaltungen und Hauptprobleme der europäischen Universitäten in ihren geschichtlichen Grundlagen und Veränderungen, aber auch in ihren regionalen Unterschieden, auf dem heutigen Forschungsstand vergleichend und zusammenfassend darzustellen.
