The historical-critical edition of Schleiermacher's complete works, his unpublished writings and correspondence, published since 1980, has been divided into the following five sections:
I.Writings and Drafts
V.Correspondence and Biographical Documents
The first editorial section, Writings and Drafts, includes all of Schleiermacher's writings which were printed during his lifetime except those which belong to the editorial sections III and IV. It also includes manuscripts either relating to these printed works or to drafts which do not belong to other editorial sections. In 2003, the final two text volumes (vols. 13 and 14) appeared. In 2005, the index volume will be published.
The second editorial section, Lectures, contains all the material regarding Schleiermacher's extentsive lecturing both in Theological and Philosophical Faculties. Additional material is also drawn from notes made in his lecture by his students. (The Berlin Research Centre has been carrying out the editorial work on this section since 1989.)
The third section, Sermons, includes all of Schleiermacher's published sermons authorised by himself, as well as his own handwritten drafts and records by listeners where the original text has not been preserved. (The Kiel Research Centre is working on this section since 2003.) This edition of Schleiermacher's sermons will consist of a total of 12 volumes of approximately 600 pages each.
Section V. includes the letters from and to Schleiermacher, as well as bibliographical documents. The work on this section started in 1979 in the Schleiermacher Research Center Berlin.
Die Auseinandersetzung mit Schleiermachers Philosophie der Wechselwirkung geht in vier systematischen Schritten vor, wobei sich jeder der vier Schritte einem je eigenen Textkorpus zuwendet: den frühen Berliner Schriften, den Dialektikvorlesungen, den Hermeneutik- und Kritikvorlesungen und schließlich den Vorlesungen zur philosophischen Ethik.
Die Beiträge dieses Bandes beleuchten die historische Dimension von Begriff und Interpretation ebenso wie ihre methodisch-prozesshafte Funktion als Dialektik und Hermeneutik, sie untersuchen ihr Zusammenspiel und ihre Opposition ebenso wie sie ihre Aktualität kritisch hinterfragen.
Mit Schleiermacher, Hegel und Marx stehen dabei drei Klassiker im Fokus der historischen Reflexion, die auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise zu Scharnierstellen der Moderne geworden sind. Die Frage, inwiefern und unter welchen Vorzeichen die Weiterführung ihrer Denkansätze gelingt, wird dabei nicht nur in Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen Positionen, sondern auch aus interdisziplinärer und interkultureller Perspektive untersucht.
And gave her mother forty whacks
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.
Or did she?
In this riveting debut novel, See What I Have Done, Sarah Schmidt recasts one of the most fascinating murder cases of all time into an intimate story of a volatile household and a family devoid of love.
On the morning of August 4, 1892, Lizzie Borden calls out to her maid: Someone’s killed Father. The brutal ax-murder of Andrew and Abby Borden in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts, leaves little evidence and many unanswered questions. While neighbors struggle to understand why anyone would want to harm the respected Bordens, those close to the family have a different tale to tell―of a father with an explosive temper; a spiteful stepmother; and two spinster sisters, with a bond even stronger than blood, desperate for their independence.
As the police search for clues, Emma comforts an increasingly distraught Lizzie whose memories of that morning flash in scattered fragments. Had she been in the barn or the pear arbor to escape the stifling heat of the house? When did she last speak to her stepmother? Were they really gone and would everything be better now? Shifting among the perspectives of the unreliable Lizzie, her older sister Emma, the housemaid Bridget, and the enigmatic stranger Benjamin, the events of that fateful day are slowly revealed through a high-wire feat of storytelling.
