Im Zentrum der Enzyklopädie steht die Frage, ob und inwieweit Europa im Zeitalter der Globalität durch Kontinuität und Wandel Referenzrahmen für Begriffsbildungen, Symbolisierungen und Sinndeutungen in den Geistes- und Kulturwissenschaften bleibt. Angesichts weltweiter Diskurse zur Globalität wird exemplarisch nach den Konsequenzen des global turn für den seit der Aufklärung erhobenen Anspruch Europas auf geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Deutungshoheit gefragt. Bezogen auf die geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Perspektive lautet die Kernfrage der Enzyklopädie: Wie verändert Globalität Europa und wie verändert Europa die Globalität? Grundsätzlich und am Beispiel wichtiger Sachverhalte und Begriffe aus den Lebenssphären des Menschen untersuchen mehr als einhundert Professoren der Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, wie der global turn die geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Begriffsbildung prägt. Die Bonner Enzyklopädie der Globalität bietet weitreichende Denkanstöße zu der Frage, ob und auf welche Weise europäische Deutungsmuster und Begriffsbestimmungen durch Kontinuität und Wandel im Zeichen der Globalität universell bedeutsam bleiben. ​

The Structure of the Ordinary

The influential Dutch architect's long-awaited manifesto on the everyday environment as the first and best ground for establishing the significance and coherence of architecture. According to N. J. Habraken, intimate and unceasing interaction between people and the forms they inhabit uniquely defines built environment. The Structure of the Ordinary, the culmination of decades of environmental observation and design research, is a recognition and analysis of everyday environment as the wellspring of urban design and formal architecture. The author's central argument is that built environment is universally organized by the Orders of Form, Place, and Understanding. These three fundamental, interwoven principles correspond roughly to physical, biological, and social domains. Historically, "ordinary" environment was the background against which architects built the "extraordinary." Drawing upon extensive examples from archaeological and contemporary sites worldwide, the author illustrates profound recent shifts in the structure of everyday environment. One effect of these transformations, Habraken argues, has been the loss of implicit common understanding that previously enabled architects to formally enhance and innovate while still maintaining environmental coherence. Consequently, architects must now undertake a study of the ordinary as the fertile common ground in which form- and place-making are rooted. In focusing on built environment as an autonomous entity distinct from the societies and natural environments that jointly create it, this book lays the foundation for a new dialogue on methodology and pedagogy, in support of a more informed approach to professional intervention.

Many of us take for granted that what we perceive is a completely accurate representation of the world around us. Yet we have all had the experience of suddenly realizing that the keys or glasses that we had been looking for in vain were right in front of us the whole time. The capacity of our sense organs far exceeds our mental capabilities, and as such, looking at something does not guarantee that we will notice it. Our minds constantly prioritize and organize the information we take in, bringing certain things to the foreground, while letting others - that which we deem irrelevant - recede into the background. What ultimately determines what we perceive, and what we do not? In this fascinating book, noted sociologist Eviatar Zerubavel argues that we perceive things not just as human beings but as social beings. Drawing on fascinating examples from science, the art world, optical illusions, and all walks of life, he shows that what we notice or ignore varies across cultures and throughout history, and illustrates how our environment and our social lives - everything from our lifestyles to our professions to our nationalities - play a role in determining how we actually use our senses to access the world. A subtle yet powerful examination of one of the central features of our conscious life, this book offers a way to think about all that might otherwise remain hidden in plain sight.
