Abaelards Historia calamitatum

Author: Dag Nikolaus Hasse
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 3110170124
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Authors, Latin (Medieval and modern)

Peter Abelard's autobiography, the Historia calamitatum, is one of the best-known medieval texts, especially because of the story of his love for Heloise which it recounts. In recent decades, there was so much controversy about the authenticity of the documents concerning Abelard and Heloise that the critical interpretation of the texts was relegated to the sidelines. The present volume provides a way out of this impasse. In it, the famous text is subjected to a series of exemplary analyses from the perspectives of seven different 20th century literary theories (aesthetics of reception, Foucault, Gender Studies, Rhetorical Stylistic Analysis, Psychology of Literature, Cultural Studies, Deconstruction). The analyses are preceded by the Latin text of the Historia calamitatum with a modern German translation. This is thus the first time that the Historia calamitatum has been presented in a bilingual edition.

Nicht zuletzt durch die analytischen Leistungen der Naturwissenschaften wurde unser Weltbild in immer mehr und kleinere Fraktionen zerlegt. So mag es nutzen, sich wieder um das Komplexe und Ganzheitliche zu kümmern, um Interdisziplinarität und Synoptik. In seinem neuesten Buch untersucht Rupert Riedl die Struktur- und Funktionszusammenhänge, die wir als "komplex" bezeichnen. Er analysiert auf brilliante Art und Weise die Bestimmung, das Auftreten, die Bedeutung und letztlich den fachlichen Umgang mit der Komplexität.

Human ageing is always subject to cultural interpretation. The continuous process of maturing and decline thus only becomes recognisable and significant with the idea of life stages. Here, topoi such as those of the simple child or the wise grey head as habitual patterns of understanding and thought reveal the social and cultural knowledge of life stages in tradition and change. The papers in this volume examine sources from biblical tradition right through to the 21st century and enquire into the argumentative force of the topic, with which apparently fixed ways of thinking can vary and thus open new perspectives on life stages.
