This volume explores communication and its implications on interpretation, vagueness, multilingualism, and multiculturalism. It investigates cross-cultural perspectives with original methods, models, and arguments emphasizing national, EU, and international perspectives. Both traditional fields of investigations along with an emerging new field (Legal Visual Studies) are discussed. Communication addresses the necessity of an ongoing interaction between jurilinguists and legal professionals. This interaction requires persuasive, convincing, and acceptable reasons in justifying transparency, visual analyses, and dialogue with the relevant audience. The book is divided into five complementary sections: Professional Legal Communication; Legal Language in a Multilingual and Multicultural Context; Legal Communication in the Courtroom; Laws on Language and Language Rights; and Visualizing Legal Communication. The book shows the diversity in the understanding and practicing of legal communication and paves the way to an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural operation in our common understanding of legal communication. This book is suitable for advanced students in Linguistics and Law, and for academics and researchers working in the field of Language and Law and jurilinguists.

The care and maintenance of technology is a specialized field requiring a diverse set of skills to perform properly. Many libraries find it difficult to attract skilled people because of a lack of personnel budgets, because of a location that is rural enough to have a limited applicant pool, or because the library lacks enough technological savvy to make effective hiring decisions. Regardless of the reason for the lack of technological skill in a library’s staff, there are ways to outsource major technological functions of the library so that even very small libraries can have the same access to technology as the big libraries—and big libraries can manage huge technological projects with the same resources and skills as multinational companies. Outsourcing Technology: A Practical Guide for Librarians will provide the information and guidance needed for both the smallest libraries to embrace technology and the largest libraries to get the most from their technology investments with tips and tricks for libraries of size between as well.

Traktat über die menschliche Natur / Über den Verstand

Category: Philosophy

Die drei Bücher des Traktats (Über den Verstand; Über die Affekte; Über Moral), 1739 bzw. 1740 anonym publiziert, fielen "als Totgeburt aus der Presse" (so Hume über die Nichtbeachtung seines Erstlings durch die Zeitgenossen). Heute gilt das Jugendwerk, da es im Kern bereits die ganze Philosophie des kritischen Empirikers enthält, als Humes theoretisches Hauptwerk. Humes Wissenschaft von der menschlichen Natur vollzieht sich in einer doppelten Bewegung: sie zerstört der Intention nach die traditionelle Metaphysik und etabliert deren ihr selbst verborgene Wahrheit in einer neuartigen Geisteswissenschaft oder Anthropologie, der "science of man".

Eine Kleinstadt in Kuba, 1957, kurz vor der Revolution. Der junge Fortunato will sich den Rebellen anschließen, wird, als er sich eine Waffe besorgen will, gefasst, gefoltert, auf der Flucht erschossen, aufgehängt. Zuvor hatte er im Laden des Großvaters Einwickelpapier gestohlen, um darauf einen Roman zu schreiben: die Geschichte seiner Familie. Das kann kein ruhiger Bericht werden, die Verhältnisse sind nicht danach. In qualvoller Enge drängen sich drei Generationen in einer kleinen Hütte im Dunstkreis einer Guavenfabrik. Alle wollten sie einmal ausbrechen, alle wurden sie zurückgeschleudert ins immer gleiche, ausweglose Elend. Fortunato schreibt das alles auf, den Hass und die Verbitterung, aber auch die Träume - alles, was jeden Einzelnen bewegt. Er kriecht in seine Figuren hinein, verwandelt sich ihnen an, wie ein Besessener folgt er jeder Bewegung, leidet, lebt, stirbt mit seinen Figuren, um wenigstens schreibend der Alternative zu entrinnen, die in Wahrheit keine ist: Wahnsinn oder Tod. Ein Chaos der Leidenschaften tut sich auf, der Leser wird hineingerissen in wechselnde Perspektiven - ein atemloser Bericht aus dem Untergrund sozialer Revolutionen. Den wild gemachten Fantasien der Unterdrückten gibt Arenas Ausdruck, weil er ihnen nicht die Zügel einer realistischen Erzählweise anlegt. Von Reinaldo Arenas außerdem in der Edition diá: Engelsberg.
