We live in a modern age, but what does ‘modern’ mean and how can a reflection on ‘modernity’ help us to understand the world today? These are the questions that Peter Wagner sets out to answer in this concise and accessible book. Wagner begins by returning to the question of modernity's Western origins and its claims to open up a new and better era in the history of humanity. Modernity's claims and expectations have become more prevalent and widely shared, but in the course of their realization and diffusion they have also been radically transformed. In an acute and engaging analysis, Wagner examines the following key issues among others: – Modernity was based on the hope for freedom and reason, but it created the institutions of contemporary capitalism and democracy. How does the freedom of the citizen relate to the freedom of the buyer and seller today? And what does disaffection with capitalism and democracy entail for the sustainability of modernity? – Rather than a single model of modernity, there is now a plurality of forms of modern socio-political organisation. What does this entail for our idea of progress and our hope that the future world can be better than the present one? – All nuance and broadening notwithstanding, our concept of modernity is in some way inextricably tied to the history of Europe and the West. How can we compare different forms of modernity in a 'symmetric', non-biased or non-Eurocentric way? How can we develop a world-sociology of modernity?
The Italian critic Francesco De Sanctis (1817-1883) identified Italianness with backwardness in order to oppose it to European modernity and promote a process of Europeanization of Italy. Two targets stood out in his attack on Italian backwardness: Chivalry and the Academies. A century and a half later we are able to acknowledge the continuity rather than the break between Italian early modernity and European modernity, revisiting a biased paradigm that no longer works and reassessing the historical importance of Chivalry and the Academies as cultural mediators. Divided into three sections devoted to chivalric poems, academic debates and Anglo-Italian relations, and dedicated to the work of Jane E. Everson, who has highly contributed to the re-evaluation of Italian early modernity, this volume gathers together some of the major experts of early modern Italy and highlights the relevance of Italian early modernity in framing and shaping European culture well into our contemporary world.Jane E. Everson is Professor Emerita of Italian at Royal Holloway University of London. Stefano Jossa is Reader in Italian, and Giuliana Pieri Professor of Italian and the Visual Arts, at Royal Holloway University of London

Introducing The Neville Goddard Collection.It has been my pleasure to devote my time to improving one of the best books available, in my humble opinion, and give students of Neville a more enjoyable reading experience. What's new in The Neville Goddard Collection? For starters I have reformatted his entire collection of 10 books. This makes it easier to read, understand and comprehend. I have also added 2 of his more famous lectures, The 1948 Class Lessons and The 1951 Radio Talks, making this the most complete Neville book available. While his 10 books covers most of his material, I felt what was missing is now covered in these 2 lecture series.From inside the bookEditors NotesThere are many noticeable differences in this collection of Neville Goddard's books that you are not likely to find in any other of his books or collections. As a student of metaphysical literature, I have come to appreciate the value of having a well formatted book which has greatly enhanced my learning curve. It was with this in mind that I have undertook this project, a labor of love, in reformatting, revamping and restructuring the entire layout of Neville's 10 books as well as two of his finest lecture series, the 1948 Classroom Lessons and July 1951 Radio Lectures/Talks.My reason for this is simple. It is easier for me, and I believe for anyone, to absorb the material of any book, especially a book of this caliber, when the formatting or layout isn't a distraction to the reader an...
Neville Goddard, better known as just Neville, was one of the quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years...In a simple, yet somehow elegant one-hour lecture, Neville was able to clarify the nature of God and God's relationship to every person. He spoke of God in intimate terms as though he knew God very well, which he did.Joseph Murphy, a writer and lecturer, who studied with Neville in New York City, said of him: "Neville may eventually be recognized as one of the world’s great mystics,"Neville originally came to the United States from Barbados to study drama at the age of seventeen. In 1932 he gave up the theater to devote his attention to his studies in mysticism when he began his lecture career in New York City. After traveling throughout the country, he eventually made his home in Los Angeles where, in the late 1950’s, he gave a series of talks on television, and for many years, lectured regularly to capacity audiences at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. In the 1960's and early ‘70s, he confined most of his lectures to Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.Neville once said that if he was stranded on an island and was allowed one book, he would choose, The Bible, without hesitation. If he could squeeze in more, he would add Charles Fillmore’s Metaphysical Dictionary of Bible names, William Blake, (“... Why stand we here trembling around, Calling on God for help, and not ourselves, in whom God dwells?”) and Ni...
Scientific Essay from the year 2006 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: eins, University of Hamburg (Asien Afrika Institut), course: Radical Islam, 24 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The article deals with the following questions: what does modernity mean for Hamas in the Middle East and how is Hamas responding to the extensive social and political changes and challenges of modern times? To which extent do significant inconsistencies result from the Islamist movement's forceful adherence to the Islamic religious tradition (naql) on the one side and the diversity of modernity's manifestations on the other side? In many respects, Hamas as a radical movement has to do with modernity revealing itself for the Palestinians in the Middle East. For Hamas, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is, above all, a conflict with modernity. In this conflict, Hamas, on the one hand, acts as an adaptive, modern movement. On the other hand, it reveals its radical nature, claiming the indisputable monopoly on the interpretation of the Islamic religious tradition.While attempting to bring the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations back to the starting point after the 1967 war - after the unsuccessful period of unequal and unilateral negotiations between the Israelis and Arafats Fatah - Hamas aims at improving the fate of the Palestinian people by establishing an Islamic system (nizām islāmī). This is precisely the main preoccupation of the movem...
