Zeiterfahrung gehört zu den Grundgegebenheiten des Menschseins. Der Mensch erfährt Zeit im Wandel seiner Welt und in den Tiefen seiner Selbst, als Fluch der Natur und als Leistung seines Geistes. Er kann die Zeit nicht so lassen, wie sie ihm geschieht, und er kann sich doch nicht bei dem beruhigen, was er mit ihr macht. Indem er sich kulturell deutend mit ihr auseinander setzt, erhebt er sich über die Zeit, versucht sie zu bannen und zu beherrschen, aber immer bleibt er ihrem Wandel unterworfen. Interdisziplinär gehen in diesem Band Philosophen, Historiker, Ethnologen, Juristen, Kulturwissenschaftler, Kunsthistoriker und Museumsfachleute der Frage nach, wie dies geschieht. Neben einem systematisch-theoretischen Teil, der den Grundlagen von Zeitdeutungen nachspürt, wird anhand von ethnologischen Fallstudien, historischen Untersuchungen und Gegenwartsanalysen gezeigt, wie divergierende Zeitdimensionen kompatibel gemacht werden, wie Zeitkonzepte sinnbildend wirken und wie Zeitdeutungen sich repräsentieren. Das Buch gibt also einen breiten Überblick über die Vielfalt und Unterschiedlichkeit von Zeitwahrnehmungen und Zeitdeutungen in verschiedenen Epochen und Kulturen, und zugleich auch einen Überblick darüber, welchen Beitrag die Kulturwissenschaften zur Zeitdeutung leisten.

Informative and mind-opening, this text uniquely provides a comprehensive overview of a range of non-western approaches to educational thought and practice. Its premise is that understanding the ways that other people educate their children--as well as what counts for them as "education"--may help readers to think more clearly about some of their own assumptions and values, and to become more open to alternative viewpoints about important educational matters. The approach is deliberately and profoundly pedagogical, based in the author's own teaching practice. Designed to be used in pre-service and in-service teacher education courses where substantial critical discussion and debate are encouraged, the text is enhanced by Questions for Discussion and Reflection in each chapter. Updates and Features of the Fourth Edition - NEW! Chapter 2 exploring key features of the 'western educational tradition', and information about the contemporary educational systems in different countries - NEW! Chapter 10 on traditional educational thought and practice in Oceania, with special focus on the Maori in New Zealand, the Hawai'ians, and the Australian Aboriginal peoples - Updated chapter on Africa includes fuller explanation of the diversity within the indigenous African experience, as well as several contemporary cases of state education in Africa - Updated Chapter 4 is designed to help non-Muslims to understand the Muslim educational heritage and the growing issue of Islamophobia - Exploration of Chinese education now includes a special emphasis on the thought of Confucius, the role of the imperial examination system, and the impact of political and economic changes in the 20th century - Updated analysis of contemporary educational practices in Hindu and Buddhist educational thought and practice and brief discussions of Jainism and Sikhism

This volume is written as a reaction to the worldwide decreasing interest in the natural sciences. It addresses many intriguing questions. How is the changing image of the distinct sciences experienced by the general public, by the scientists themselves, or in disciplines in which natural sciences are applied? How can it be connected to the phenomenon of the low number of women in science? It is of interest to researchers, teachers, and students of natural sciences, the history of science, and philosophy.
