Kreativität

Eine philosophische Analyse

„Kreativität“ ist ein sehr junger Begriff und ein sehr altes Phänomen. Sie gilt als unaufklärbares Rätsel, als eine Art „Black Box“ des Denkens. Dem kollektiven Bewußtsein zufolge ist sie etwas Rares, Flüchtiges, strapaziös zu erzielen und nur wenige Glückliche begünstigend. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert eine logische Grundidee zur Entstehung von schöpferisch Neuem – Elemente aus der Informations-, Kommunikations- und Medientheorie verbindend. Diese „Formel“ wird an philosophischen Stationen von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart erprobt und weiterentwickelt. Kreativität zeigt sich als ein Transformationsphänomen, welches das Denken auf eine andere logische Ebene führt und kategoriale Grenzen kollabieren läßt. Im Ergebnis ist sie nichts per Definition Abwesendes, erreichbar nur über den Umweg von unverfügbarer Gunst, weltabgewandter Passion oder verborgenen Tricks. Kreativität ist vielmehr omnipräsent, schöpferische Energien sind nur mit großem Aufwand zu unterdrücken, und die Frage, wie man sie erreicht, wird zur Frage, wie man ihr eine optimale Basis bereitet, ohne sie wesentlich zu behindern.

Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies

Popular music studies is a rapidly expanding field with changing emphases and agendas. The music industry has changed in recent years, as has governmental involvement in popular music schemes as part of the culture industry. The distinction between the major record labels and the outsider independents has become blurred over time. Popular music, as part of this umbrella of the culture industry, has been progressively globalized and globalizing. The tensions within popular music are now no longer between national cultural identity and popular music, but between the local and the global. This four volume collection examines the changing status of popular music against this background. Simon Frith examines the heritage of popular music, and how technology has changed not only the production but the reception of this brand of sound. The collection examines how the traditional genres of rock, pop and soul have broken down and what has replaced them, as well as showing how this proliferation of musical styles has also splintered the audience of popular music.

Ein Buch über das Sterben, das das Leben lehrt Die Medizin scheint über Krankheit und Tod zu triumphieren, doch sterben wir so trostlos wie nie zuvor. Der Bestsellerautor und renommierte Arzt Atul Gawande schreibt in seinem beeindruckenden Buch über das, was am Ende unseres Lebens wirklich zählt.

Ein mutiges und weises Buch eines großartigen Autors, voller Geschichten und eigener Erfahrungen, das uns hilft, die Geschichte unseres Lebens gut zu Ende zu erzählen. »Dieses Buch ist nicht nur weise und sehr bewegend, sondern gerade in unserer Zeit unbedingt notwendig und sehr aufschlussreich.« Oliver Sacks »Die medizinische Betreuung ist mehr auf Heilung ausgelegt als auf das Sterben. Dies ist Atuls Gawandes stärkstes und bewegendstes Buch.« Malcolm Gladwell

Faszinierendes Panorama der Renaissance. Der Autor behandelt erstmals die Musik als substanziellen Bestandteil der Renaissance und fügt sie in eine umfassende Kulturgeschichte ein. Er skizziert die Merkmale der Epoche, beschreibt die Position der Musik im System der Künste und vergleicht musikalische Denk- und Handlungsformen mit denen der Malerei, Literatur und Philosophie. Es wird deutlich: Komponisten im heutigen Sinn, bestimmte Formen musikalischer Schriftlichkeit und Erinnerungskultur oder auch regulierte musikalische Institutionen entstanden erst zu dieser Zeit.

Music is omnipresent in human society, but its language can no longer be regarded as transcendent or universal. Like other art forms, music is produced and consumed within complex economic, cultural, and political frameworks in different places and at different historical moments. Taking an explicitly spatial approach, this unique interdisciplinary text explores the role played by music in the formation and articulation of geographical imaginations/m-/local, regional, national, and global. Contributors show how music's facility to be recorded, stored, and broadcast; to be performed and received in private and public; and to rouse intense emotional responses for individuals and groups make it a key force in the definition of a place. Covering rich and varied terrain -- from Victorian England, to 1960s Los Angeles, to the offices of Sony and Time-Warner and the landscapes of the American Depression -- the volume addresses such topics as the evolution of musical genres, the globalization of music production and marketing, alternative and hybridized music scenes as sites of localized resistance, the nature of soundscapes, and issues of migration and national identity.

The Emotional Power of Music

Multidisciplinary perspectives on musical arousal, expression, and social control

How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers. In the first section of the book, the authors consider the expression of emotion within music, through both performance and composing. The second section explores how music can stimulate the emotions, considering the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie music listening. The third section explores how different societes have sought to manage and manipulate the power of music. The book is valuable for those in the fields of music psychology and music education, as well as philosophy and musicology

Der Erzähler in dem zuerst 1983 publizierten Werk wohnt in Madrid und schreibt eine Arbeit über den kanadischen Pianisten Glenn Gould, »den wichtigsten Klaviervirtuosen des Jahrhunderts«, der, auf dem Gipfel seiner Kunst, aufhörte zu spielen. In Madrid erreicht den Erzähler ein Telegramm, das das Begräbnis seines Freundes Wertheimer anzeigt, der sich umgebracht hat. Die drei hatten sich in Salzburg bei einem Musikkurs von Horowitz kennengelernt. Bald stellte sich heraus: Glenn Gould war das größte Genie. Unter dem Eindruck der Übermacht dieses Genies wurde der Erzähler zu einem »Weltanschauungskünstler«, zum Kritiker seiner Zeit und besonders zum Kritiker Österreichs, Wertheimer dagegen stürzte in eine unumkehrbare Existenzdepression. Je mehr der Erzähler an seinen »Versuch über Glenn« dachte, um so deutlicher wurde ihm, daß es ihm eigentlich darum zu tun war, sich Klarheit über Wertheimer, den »Untergeher«, wie Glenn Gould schon früh zu ihm gesagt hatte, zu verschaffen.
