English summary: Processes for attaining certainty, those of the Christian faith as well, are processes of the classification of signs. Gesche Linde develops this theory in four chapters by outlining the theoretical use of the concept of signs for the problem of certainty from antiquity up to Luther and then reconstructing the system of the classification of signs into ten trichotomies described in the late works of Charles Sanders Peirce. This system makes it possible to interpret all processes of consciousness, which include feeling, acting, thinking and the understanding of language, as processes of the interpretation of signs whose structures are basically identical. German description: Vergewisserungsprozesse, auch die des christlichen Glaubens, sind Zeicheninterpretationsprozesse. Die theologischen Entwurfe des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts versuchen die Glaubensgewissheit auf der Grundlage des Erfahrungsbegriffs zu begrunden oder zu rechtfertigen und sind daher mit Schwierigkeiten belastet. Gesche Linde schlagt vor, den Erfahrungsbegriff durch den Begriff der Interpretation und damit den des Zeichens zu ersetzen. Der Umstand, dass das Zeichen fur die Theoriebildung insgesamt keine grossere Rolle gespielt hat, fuhrt sie auf den Einfluss Augustins zuruck, der den Erkenntnisprozess von der Vermittlungsleistung des Zeichens abkoppelt. Sie liest Martin Luther als einen Autor, der unter humanistischem Einfluss die Gewissheitsfrage wieder neu mit dem Begriff des Zeichens verbindet: Vergewisserung ist ein trinitarisch bestimmter Prozess, der auf Zeichen zuruckgreift. Schliesslich fuhrt die Autorin den integrativen Zeichenbegriff des spaten Peirce ein und rekonstruiert zu diesem Zweck erstmals dessen zehntrichotomisches Klassifikationssystem, auf dessen Grundlage sich alle denkbaren Formen von Bewusstseinsprozessen beschreiben und auf ihre logischen Voraussetzungen hin explizieren lassen sollen, von der Manifestation vorbegrifflicher Gefuhlsqualitaten uber Handlungen bis hin zu Denk- bzw. Sprachprozessen. Auf diese Weise lasst sich die christliche Gewissheitsbildung schliesslich in einem Kontext von Gewissheitsbildung uberhaupt ansiedeln, sich als vielschichtiges Phanomen unterschiedlicher Interpretantenformen verstehen und sich als Ergebnis logisch valider Interpretationsprozesse analysieren, ohne dass die Einsicht in diese seine eigene Strukturbedingung den christlichen Glauben zur Relativierung seines Wahrheitsanspruches notigen oder ihn seines Gewissheitscharakters berauben wurde.

At its height the Roman Empire stretched across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, maintained by an army of modest size but great diversity. In popular culture these soldiers are often portrayed in a generic fashion, but continuing research indicates significant variations in Roman armour and equipment not only between different legions and the provincially-raised auxiliary cohorts that made up half of the army, but also between different regions within the empire. With reference to the latest archaeological and documentary evidence Dr D'Amato investigates how Roman Army units in the Western provinces were equipped, exploring the local influences and traditions that caused the variations in attire.

From the Latin warriors on the Palatine Hill in the age of Romulus, to the last defenders of Constantinople in 1453 AD, the weaponry of the Roman Army was constantly evolving. Through glory and defeat, the Roman warrior adapted to the changing face of warfare. Due to the immense size of the Roman Empire, which reached from the British Isles to the Arabian Gulf, the equipment of the Roman soldier varied greatly from region to region.Through the use of materials such as leather, linen and felt, the army was able to adjust its equipment to these varied climates. Arms and Armour of the Imperial Roman Soldier sheds new light on the many different types of armour used by the Roman soldier, and combines written and artistic sources with the analysis of old and new archaeological finds. With a huge wealth of plates and illustrations, which include ancient paintings, mosaics, sculptures and coin depictions, this book gives the reader an unparalleled visual record of this fascinating period of military history. This book, the first of three volumes, examines the period from Marius to Commodus. Volume II covers the period from Commodus to Justinian, and Volume III will look at the period from Romulus to Marius.

Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 BCE, learned medicine and philosophy; travelled widely as a medical doctor and teacher; was consulted by King Perdiccas of Macedon and Artaxerxes of Persia; and died perhaps at Larissa. Apparently he rejected superstition in favour of inductive reasoning and the study of real medicine as subject to natural laws, in general and in individual people as patients for treatment by medicines and surgery. Of the roughly 70 works in the 'Hippocratic Collection' many are not by Hippocrates; even the famous oath may not be his. But he was undeniably the 'Father of Medicine'. The works available in the Loeb Classical Library edition of Hippocrates are the following. Volume I: Ancient Medicine. Airs, Waters, Places. Epidemics 1 and 3. The Oath. Precepts. Nutriment. Volume II: Prognostic. Regimen in Acute Diseases. The Sacred Disease. The Art. Breaths. Law. Decorum. Physician (Ch. 1). Dentition. Volume III: On Wounds in the Head. In the Surgery. On Fractures. On Joints. Mochlicon. Volume IV: Nature of Man. Regimen in Health. Humours. Aphorisms. Regimen 1?3. Dreams. Volume V: Affections. Diseases 1?2. Volume VI: Diseases 3. Internal Affections. Regimen in Acute Diseases. Volume VII: Epidemics 2 and 4?7. Volume VIII: Places in Man. Glands. Fleshes. Prorrhetic I?II. Physician. Use of Liquids. Ulcers. Haemorrhoids and Fistulas. Volume IV also contains the fragments of Heracleitus, On the Universe.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Modern Rhetoric in Culture, Arts, and Media

The goal of this book is to formulate a modern theoretical approach for rhetorical studies in a variety of disciplines in the humanities, media research, and other cultural studies. The discipline of rhetoric originally concerned itself with linguistic forms of communication, and its basic theory was developed with such cases in mind. With respect to this ancient tradition, there are numerous books that provide a historical overview of the field. There is also a wide array of introductory works and research contributions that deal with the practice of political rhetoric. On the other hand, only a few 20th century academics have attempted to theoretically rehabilitate rhetoric (after its decline as an academic discipline in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries) and to give rhetorical theory a modern, new, and further reaching perspective. Two notable examples have been Kenneth Burke and Brian Vickers. The book begins with the assumption that rhetoric is not merely limited to linguistic action, but rather is present everywhere in the communicative world. Against this background, this work develops a modern theory of rhetoric, and demonstrates in twelve chapters how methodical rhetorical analysis can be done in selected practical fields of application (Literature, Music, Images, and Film).

Milton's Ontology, Cosmogony, and Physics

Walter Clyde Curry, a well-known student of Milton, analyzes the origins and unique construction of the grand stage upon which Milton presents the drama of human destiny in Paradise Lost. Through close examination of four entities -- Heaven of Heavens, Hell, chaos, and the World -- a greatly expanded view is provided of the poet's concept of space and God's relation to total creation. In facing structural and philosophical problems Milton is shown to be neither a materialist, nor an eclectic, nor a pantheist, as many scholars have insisted; he emerges rather as a master syncretist of widely divergent materials and as a devout theopantist. Curry has established a firm basis for a better understanding of the poet's methodology and for a clearer insight into his artistic accomplishments
