Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Publisher: DVA
ISBN: 9783641104986
Release Date: 2013-09-02
Genre: History

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

ISBN: 3515085858
Release Date: 2004
Genre: History

Herodots Schilderung von Deiokes' Aufstieg zum K�nig (1,96-1,101,1) l��t sich auf verschiedene Weisen lesen: als Quelle fuer die altorientalische Geschichte und ihre Deutung durch einen Griechen, als genuin historiographischer Text am Anfang der Gattungsbildung und als Beitrag zu einem politischen Diskurs. Die hier vorgelegten, einander erg�nzenden und aufeinander abgestimmten Interpretationen verstehen sich als Muster fuer einen kuenftigen intra- und interdisziplin�ren Kommentar zum Werk des Geschichtsschreibers zwischen Ost und West. Aus dem Inhalt Herodot, 1,96-1,101,1: Text und �bersetzung Josef Wieseh�fer: Daiukku, Deiokes und die medische Reichsbildung Mischa Meier: Die Deiokes-Episode im Werk Herodots. �berlegungen zu den Entstehungsbedingungen griechischer Geschichtsschreibung Barbara Patzek: Die Deiokes-Erz�hlung im Rahmen der Persergeschichten Herodots: eine konsequente Reihe historisch-erz�hlerischer Sinngebungen?
