The Pursuit Of The Millennium

by Norman Cohn, The Pursuit Of The Millennium Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Pursuit Of The Millennium books, The Middle Ages inherited from Antiquity a tradition of prophesy and gave it fresh and exuberant life. This tradition foretold a Millennium in which humanity would enjoy a new Paradise on earth, free of suffering and sin - a Kingdom of the Saints. Generation after generation was intermittently seized by a tense expectation of some sudden, miraculous event in which the world would be utterly transformed. Often these expectations became enmeshed with social unrest, and when that happened movements arose which sent tremors through the massive structure of medieval society. Drawing on a huge variety of contemporary sources, this unique and compelling book tells the story of those Millenarian fanaticisms of the Middle Ages and points to their persistence in the modern world.'Important and original-haunting and significant.' Times Literary Supplement'Full of rich, fascinating scholarship-What a field he covers.' Hugh Trevor-Roper'It is a piece of great originality and power-It deserves study and emulation.' Isaiah Berlin

Kapital Und Ideologie

by Thomas Piketty, Kapital Und Ideologie Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kapital Und Ideologie books, Mit dem Weltbestseller "Das Kapital im 21.Jahrhundert" hat Thomas Piketty eines der wichtigsten Bücher unserer Zeit geschrieben. Jetzt legt er mit einem gewaltigen Werk nach: Kapital und Ideologie ist eine so noch niemals geschriebene Globalgeschichte der sozialen Ungleichheit und ihrer Ursachen, eine unnachsichtige Kritik der zeitgenössischen Politik und zugleich der kühne Entwurf eines neuen und gerechteren ökonomischen Systems. Nichts steht geschrieben: Der Kapitalismus ist kein Naturgesetz. Märkte, Profite und Kapital sind von Menschen gemacht. Wie sie funktionieren, hängt von unseren Entscheidungen ab. Das ist der zentrale Gedanke des neuen Buches von Thomas Piketty. Der berühmte Ökonom erforscht darin die Entwicklungen des letzten Jahrtausends, die zu Sklaverei, Leibeigenschaft, Kolonialismus, Kommunismus, Sozialdemokratie und Hyperkapitalismus geführt und das Leben von Milliarden Menschen geformt haben. Seine welthistorische Bestandsaufnahme führt uns weit über Europa und den Westen hinaus bis nach Asien und Afrika und betrachtet die globalen Ungleichheitsregime mit all ihren ganz unterschiedlichen Ursachen und Folgen. Doch diese eindrucksvolle Analyse ist für Thomas Piketty kein Selbstzweck. Er führt uns mit seinen weitreichenden Einsichten und Erkenntnissen hinein in die Krise der Gegenwart. Wenn wir die ökonomischen und politischen Ursachen der Ungleichheit verstanden haben, so Piketty, dann können wir die notwendigen Schritte für eine gerechtere und zukunftsfähige Welt konkret benennen und angehen. Kapital und Ideologie ist das geniale Werk eines der wichtigsten Denker unserer Zeit, eines der Bücher, die unsere Zeit braucht. Es hilft uns nicht nur, die Welt von heute zu verstehen, sondern sie zu verändern.

Der Spiegel Der Einfachen Seelen

by Marguerite Porete, Der Spiegel Der Einfachen Seelen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Der Spiegel Der Einfachen Seelen books, "Ein spiritueller und zeitkritischer Bestseller". Irmgard Kampmann Am 1. Juni 1310 wird Marguerite Porete mitten in Paris bei lebendigen Leib verbrannt - zusammen mit ihrem Buch, das die heilige Inquisition in Aufruhr versetzt hatte. Der grausame Feuertod der nordfranzösischen Begine konnte allerdings nicht verhindern, dass "Der Spiegel der einfachen Seelen" über Jahrhunderte hinweg ein Bestseller wurde. In mehreren Sprachen fand er anonym in ganz Europa Verbreitung und übte einen kaum zu überschätzenden Einfluss auf das religiöse Denken weit über ihre Zeit hinaus aus. Meister Eckhart etwa ist erkennbar von diesem Buch inspiriert. Was war so gefährlich an der Schrift dieser frommen Begine? Den religiösen Zwängen ihrer Zeit setzt Marguerite Porete eine schier unerhörte Mystik der Freiheit entgegen! Der von Gottes Liebe ganz durchdrungene Mensch braucht sich weder um Tugenden noch um Bußübungen, Messen, Predigten usw. zu kümmern! Der Atem der Freiheit durchdringt dieses Buch, und so manche kühne These der Reformation nimmt Marguerite Porte wörtlich vorweg. Erst im 20. Jahrhundert gelang der Forschung der Nachweis, dass Marguerite Porete die Autorin des "Spiegels der einfachen Seelen" ist. Eines der bedeutendsten Werke der Frauenmystik des Mittelalters liegt nun in einer neuen deutschen Übersetzung vor. Für alle an der Geschichte des Mittelalters, an der abendländischen Mystik, an der Befreiungsgeschichte der Frau Interessierte ist dieses einzigartige Werk nun neu erschlossen. Neu übersetzt aus dem Altfranzösischen von Bruno Kern.

Cosmos Chaos And The World To Come

by Norman Cohn, Cosmos Chaos And The World To Come Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cosmos Chaos And The World To Come books, All over the world people look forward to a perfect future, when the forces of good will be finally victorious over the forces of evil. Once this was a radically new way of imagining the destiny of the world and of mankind. How did it originate, and what kind of world-view preceded it? In this engrossing book, the author of the classic work The Pursuit of the Millennium takes us on a journey of exploration, through the world-views of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and India, through the innovations of Iranian and Jewish prophets and sages, to the earliest Christian imaginings of heaven on earth. Until around 1500 B.C., it was generally believed that once the world had been set in order by the gods, it was in essence immutable. However, it was always a troubled world. By means of flood and drought, famine and plague, defeat in war, and death itself, demonic forces threatened and impaired it. Various combat myths told how a divine warrior kept the forces of chaos at bay and enabled the world to survive. Sometime between 1500 and 1200 B.C., the Iranian prophet Zoroaster broke from that static yet anxious world-view, reinterpreting the Iranian version of the combat myth. For Zoroaster, the world was moving, through incessant conflict, toward a conflictless state--"cosmos without chaos." The time would come when, in a prodigious battle, the supreme god would utterly defeat the forces of chaos and their human allies and eliminate them forever, and so bring an absolutely good world into being. Cohn reveals how this vision of the future was taken over by certain Jewish groups, notably the Jesus sect, with incalculable consequences. Deeply informed yet highly readable, this magisterial book illumines a major turning-point in the history of human consciousness. It will be mandatory reading for all who appreciated The Pursuit of the Millennium.
