Claims and Limits of a Lost Discipline
Volume Editors: Andrea Allerkamp and Martin Roussel
When the Werner Reimers Foundation organized a colloquium on Human Ethology in 1977, it was about Claims and Limits of a New Discipline as a bridge between biology and the social sciences and humanities. As a lost discipline, however, the interdisciplinary approach to ethology only takes shape in a dispersed dispositif. This is the framing argument, which derives from the nucleus of ethology, namely that the starting point of all knowledge is the body in its possibilities of movement in time and space to affect and be affected. In their essays (English or German), the contributors to this collection have worked through the heterogeneity of ethological thought – from Spinoza to Jakob von Uexküll, Gregory Bateson, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Philippe Descola, or Isabelle Stengers – and practice – as, for example in the works of Virginia Woolf or Marcel Beyer – and have taken it as an opportunity to relocate ethology,

Politische Macht an sich ist unsichtbar. Um zu erscheinen, ist sie auf Fiktionen angewiesen: Der machtvolle Politiker oder der Wille des »Volks« wird in politischen Inszenierungen sichtbar gemacht. Der Band untersucht ästhetische Konzepte, die in politischen Inszenierungen in der Geschichte Europas wirksam waren und sind.
Ziel des Bands ist eine Antwort auf die Frage, wie ästhetische Praktiken politisch wirksam werden – und wie sie in ästhetischen Werken reinszeniert werden. Die Beiträge analysieren in literatur-, kultur- und medienwissenschaftlicher Perspektive die politische Ästhetik ebenso in Schillers Jungfrau von Orleans oder Novalis’ Glauben und Liebe wie in der Tiersymbolik der Politik oder der politischen Ästhetik der Wahrheitskommissionen in Südafrika. Es geht weniger um eine Systematik möglicher Zugriffe auf die Frage der politischen Ästhetik als vielmehr um die Sichtbarmachung möglicher Forschungsperspektiven.
An Anthropological Outlook on Actor-Network Theory
In the past few years, the Actor-Network Theory of French philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour has become a hotly debated topic in the humanities. From a philosophical perspective, his theory of things keeps being reevaluated: is it possible for »Human and Non-Human Actors« to be analyzed as equally important actors? Does Latour’s theory of a simultaneously »agency« of things and concepts indeed move beyond a subject-object relation, and if it does, how far does it in fact go?
Such questions, seemingly at odds with more common traditions of thought, are the centerpiece of research at the Morphomata Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities. Can these questions of intention and phenomenality be correlated with the resistance of things and their forms? The volume focuses on questions of symmetry or dissymmetry between the world of »things« and »human beings«, including contributions from the fields of social studies, literary studies, and philosophy.
