Abstract

"Z ogromną radością oddajemy do rąk Czytelników kolejną już monografię ukazującą powiązania między starożytnym Rzymem a Półwyspem Iberyjskim. Relacje te wciąż żywo interesują badaczy reprezentujących różne dyscypliny naukowe zarówno w Polsce, jak i za granicą. Książkę otwiera część poświęcona kwestiom językowym, zogniskowanym wokół dziedzictwa łaciny w języku hiszpańskim. Druga część dotyczy szeroko rozumianej literatury, począwszy od twórczości takich autorów, jak Marcjalis czy Pliniusz, poprzez łacińskie pieśni miłosne z Ripoll, piętnastowieczne dzieło Jana ze Stobnicy, a kończąc na pochodzącej ze starożytności ekfrazie, obecnej w literaturze siedemnastowiecznej Hiszpanii. Reprezentowana jest również literatura Portugalii, która w starożytnej mitologii doszukiwała się początków tego kraju. Kolejne rozdziały książki - na podstawie tekstów literackich oraz pozostałości archeologicznych, inskrypcji czy monet - poruszają tematy związane z historią i archeologią, takie jak: kult cesarski w hiszpańskich prowincjach Rzymu, zagadnienia militarne i prawnicze, polityczne koalicje oraz aktualność starożytnych wzorów osobowych. W monografii pojawiają się też rozdziały o amforach i świątyniach, które pozostały po starożytnej wymianie kulturowej i handlowej."--

Abstract

One of the most remarkable epochs in the history of human thought is that through which we have passed in the last half of the nineteenth century. One after the other we have seen the lower sciences revivified, reconstructed, transformed by the new knowledge. The sciences dealing with man in society have naturally been the last to be affected, but now that the movement has reached them the changes therein promise to be even more startling in character. History, economics, the science of politics, and, last but not least important, the attitude of science to the religious life and the religious phenomena of mankind, promise to be profoundly influenced. The whole plan of life is, in short, being slowly revealed to us in a new light, and we are beginning to perceive that it presents a single majestic unity, throughout every part of which the conditions of law and orderly progress reign supreme. Nothing is more remarkable in this period of reconstruction than the change which is almost imperceptibly taking place in the minds of the rising generation respecting the great social and religious problem of our time. We have lived through a period when the very foundations of human thought have been rebuilt. That the moral law is the unchanging law of progress in human society is the lesson which appears to be written over all things. No school of theology has ever sought to enforce this teaching with the directness and emphasis which it appears that evolutionary science will in the future be justified in doing. In the silent and strenuous rivalry in which every section of the race is of necessity continually engaged, permanent success appears to be invariably associated with the ethical and moral conditions favourable to the maintenance of a high standard of social efficiency, and with those conditions only. No one who engages in a serious study of the period of transition through which our Western civilisation is passing at the present time can resist the conclusion that we are rapidly approaching a time when we shall be face to face with social and political problems, graver in character and more far-reaching in extent than any which have been hitherto encountered. These problems are not peculiar to any nationality included in our civilisation. But in the method of their solution, the social efficiency of the various sections of the Western peoples will probably be put to a severer test than any which it has yet had to undergo. Those who realise, however dimly, the immense part which the English-speaking peoples--if true to their own traditions--are not improbably destined to play in the immediate future of the world, will feel how great a gain any advance may be which enables us through the methods of modern science to obtain a clear perception of the stern, immutable conditions of moral fitness and uprightness through which alone a people can long continue to play a great part on the stage of the world. No other race has ever looked out upon such an opportunity as presents itself before these peoples in the twentieth century.

Abstract

Historians often assume a one-directional transmission of knowledge and ideas, leading to the establishment of spatial hierarchies defined as centres and peripheries. In recent decades, transnational and global history have contributed to a more inclusive understanding of intellectual and cultural exchanges that profoundly challenged the ways in which we draw our mental maps. Covering the early modern and modern periods, Re-Mapping Centre and Periphery investigates the asymmetrical and multi-directional structure of such encounters within Europe as well as in a global context. Exploring subjects from the shores of the Russian Empire to nation-making in Latin America, the international team of contributors demonstrates how, as products of human agency, centre and periphery are conditioned by mutual dependencies; rather than representing absolute categories of analysis, they are subjective constructions determined by a constantly changing discursive context. Through its analysis, the volume develops and implements a conceptual framework for remapping centres and peripheries, based on conceptual history and discourse history. As such, it will appeal to a wide variety of historians, including transnational, cultural and intellectual, and historians of early modern and modern periods. Praise for Re-mapping Centre and Periphery '... [A] fine examination and quantitative analysis of the meaning of metropolis by Tessa Hauswedell. ... One of the strengths of the volume lies in its imaginative selection of cases that link these concerns to political, industrial, and agricultural modernisation, scientific, trade and municipal networks, nationalism and consumption, or the concepts of identity, margin and metropolis. ... This collection of essays brings new insights into the multi-layered and challenging subject of centre and periphery. ...The book thus makes a welcome contribution to ongoing efforts in the social and human sciences to "re-map centre and periphery".'

Abstract

"The author asserts that a philosophical principle becomes valuable if it can be used as a guide in the practical purposes of life. The object of this book is to impress upon its reader a conviction that civilization does not proceed in an arbitrary manner or by chance, but that it passes through a determinate succession of stages, and is a development according to law. For this purpose, the book considers the relations between individual and social life, and showed that they are physiologically inseparable, and that the course of communities bears an unmistakable resemblance to the progress of an individual, and that man is the archetype or exemplar of society. Next, the author examines the intellectual history of Greece--a nation offering the best and most complete illustration of the life of humanity. From the beginnings of its mythology in old Indian legends and of, its philosophy in Ionia, we saw that it passed through phases like those of the individual to its decrepitude and death in Alexandria. Then, addressing ourselves to the history of Europe, we found that, if suitably divided into groups of ages, these groups, compared with each other in chronological succession, present a striking resemblance to the successive phases of Greek life, and therefore to that which Greek life resembles--that is to say, individual life. Nations, like individuals, are born, pass through a predestined growth, and die. One comes to its end at an early period and in an untimely way; another, not until it has gained maturity. But for every one there is an orderly way of progress to its final term, whatever that term may be."
