Book Summary:

Throughout Scottish history, many people believed in fairies. They were a part of everyday life, as real to people as the sunrise, and as incontrovertible as the existence of God. While fairy belief was only a fragment of a much larger complex, the implications of studying this belief tradition are potentially vast, revealing some understanding of the worldview of the people of past centuries. This book, the first modern study of the subject, examines the history and nature of fairy belief, the major themes and motifs, the demonising attack upon the tradition, and the attempted reinstatement of the reality of fairies at the end of the seventeenth century, as well as their place in ballads and in Scottish literature.

Book Summary:

This groundbreaking book, the first to examine Milton's thinking about matter and substance throughout his entire poetic career, seeks to alter the prevailing critical view that Milton was a monist-materialist--one who believes that all things are composed of material and all phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material interactions. Based on her close study of the philosophical movements of Milton's mind, Sugimura discovers the "fluid intermediaries" in his poetry that are neither strictly material nor immaterial. In doing so, Sugimura uses Paradise Lost as a fascinating window into the intersection of literature and philosophy, and of literary studies and intellectual history. Sugimura finds that Milton displays a tense and ambiguous relationship with the idealistic dualism of Plato and the materialism of Aristotle and she argues for a more nuanced interpretation of Milton's metaphysics.

Book Summary:

Die internationale Strafjustiz hat sich auf der weltpolitischen Bühne etabliert. Der Internationale Strafgerichtshof (IStGH) arbeitet schwere Menschenrechtsverletzungen in derzeit neun afrikanischen Staaten auf und hat Vorermittlungen zu den Konfliktherden Palästina und Ukraine eingeleitet. Aufgrund der Komplexität der Materie und den oftmals andauernden kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen, steht die internationale Strafjustiz vor besonderen Herausforderungen. Sich diesen zu stellen ist Aufgabe von Anklage und Verteidigung. In der wissenschaftlichen und medialen Wahrnehmung steht jedoch - wie bereits im Falle des Jugoslawien- und Ruandatribunals – die IStGH-Anklagebehörde im Vordergrund. Nur selten werden Rolle und Schwierigkeiten der Angeklagten sowie der Verteidigung beleuchtet. Die Autorinnen und Autoren aus Praxis und Wissenschaft widmen sich in Beiträgen in deutscher und englischer Sprache diesem Blick hinter die Kulissen der internationalen Strafgerichte. Mit Beiträgen von: Heiko Ahlbrecht, Eleni Chaitidou, Isabel Düsterhöft, Masha Fedorova, Benjamin Ferencz, Julia Gebhard, Philipp Graebke, Mayeul Hiéramente, Elisa Hoven, Dominic Kennedy, Marie O'Leary, Sally Alexandra Longworth, Philipp Müller, Colleen Rohan, Patricia Schneider
