This special issue of Symbolism: An International Annual of Critical Aesthetics explores the various functions of metaphor in life writing. Looking at a range of autobiographical subgenres (pathography, disability narratives, memoirs of migration, autofiction) and different kinds of metaphors, the contributions seek to ‘map’ the possibilities of metaphor for narratively framing an individual life and for constructing notions of selfhood.

The eighth volume of the International Yearbook of Futurism Studies is again an open issue and presents in its first section new research into the international impact of Futurism on artists and artistic movements in France, Great Britain, Hungary and Sweden. This is followed by a study that investigates a variety of Futurist inspired developments in architecture, and an essay that demonstrates that the Futurist heritage was far from forgotten after the Second World War. These papers show how a wealth of connections linked Futurism with Archigram, Metabolism, Archizoom and Deconstructivism, as well as the Nuclear Art movement, Spatialism, Environmental Art, Neon Art, Kinetic Art and many other trends of the 1960s and 70s. The second section focuses on Futurism and Science and contains a number of papers that were first presented atthe fifth bi-annual conference of the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies (EAM), held on 1–3 June 2016 in Rennes. They investigate the impact of science on Futurist aesthetics and the Futurist quest for a new perception and rational understanding of the world, as well as the movement’s connection with the esoteric domain, especially in the field of theosophy, the Hermetic tradition, Gnostic mysticism and a whole phalanx of Spiritualist beliefs. The Archive section offers a survey of collections and archives in Northern Italy that are concerned with Futurist ceramics, and a report on the Fondazione Primo Conti in Fiesole, established in April 1980 as a museum, library and archive devoted to the documentation of the international avant-garde, and to Italian Futurism in particular. A review section dedicated to exhibitions, conferences and publications is followed by an annual bibliography of international Futurism studies, exhibition catalogues, special issues of periodicals and new editions.

Grundthemen der Literaturwissenschaft - Literarische Form

Form ist die wohl einflussreichste, sicher aber die best�ndigste Erkennungs- und Konfliktkategorie des literarischen Feldes. Wie kein anderes Konzept verbindet sie die Selbstbegr�ndungen der Dichtung mit Diskursen �ber sie und stiftet ein Kontinuum, das gegenw�rtige Modelle auf vergangene und eigene auf fremde zu beziehen erlaubt. Das Handbuch 'Literarische Form' beschreibt das Ph�nomen und die mit ihm verbundenen Debatten unter den Rubriken 'Formtheorie', 'Formverfahren' und 'Formkultur' und diskutiert sie in historischer und systematischer Breite - auch mit Blick auf fachdisziplin�re Formdiskurse jenseits der Literaturwissenschaft. Der Formbegriff reicht hierbei von der Mikroebene der literarischen Verfahren �ber Klassifikationskalk�le bei der Gattungsbildung bis zu weltanschaulichen Konzepten und Pragmatiken. Zu diesem Kontext z�hlt auch die Genese der bedeutendsten Bin�roppositionen, die - wie beispielhaft 'Materie vs. Form'- besonders wirkungsm�chtig waren oder durch dynamische Konzepte - etwa 'Immersion und Agency' - erg�nzt und ersetzt worden sind. Das Ziel des Bandes ist die Erstbeschreibung dieser vielschichtigen literaturwissenschaftlichen Formdebatte, die hier in ihren wesentlichen Facetten vorgestellt wird.

Gleaming Coffins. Iconography and Symbolism in Theban Coffin Decoration (21st Dynasty)

Egyptian coffin decoration is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon with its own history and evolution. ‘Yellow’ coffins were crafted in Thebes during a particular critical period in the Egyptian History, witnessing to a situation of political unrest and severe economic scarcity affecting Egypt, the Near East and the Mediterranean. And yet, there is no evidence for a decline in the production of these outstanding funerary artefacts. On the contrary, the corpus of ‘yellow’ coffins outnumbers the previous types of Egyptian anthropoid containers and stands out among the most complex and sophisticated objects ever crafted in the Ancient World. Besides this historical paradox, the ‘yellow’ corpus presents important epistemological challenges for our understanding of Egyptian material culture: what kind of space is created within the walls and forms of an anthropoid coffin? What role plays variability and change in this process? Last but not the least, can we understand the meaning behind the multiple shapes and endless variations adopted in coffin decoration during this period? This book addresses these questions presenting the results of a comparative study on coffin decoration involving an extensive sample of objects from the ‘yellow’ corpus dispersed in museums around the world. The results of this study reveal the principles of composition that ruled the work of the ancient Theban craftsmen and show how important coffin decoration was for the Theban priesthood of Amun to convey their own corporative values.

On Symbolism and Symbolisation

The Work of Freud, Durkheim and Mauss

In On Symbolism and Symbolisation: The Work of Freud, Durkheim and Mauss, Éric Smadja returns to the end of the 19th century and explores how the concepts of symbolism and symbolisation have been discussed among theorists, and how this discussion has developed and revolutionised the human sciences as we know them today. Uniquely, he connects three key thinkers of psychoanalysis, sociology and ethnology – Freud, Durkheim and Mauss – and discusses how their diverse epistemological paths blend and have consequently shaped our representation of humanity, society and culture in the 20th and 21st centuries. In this innovative work, Smadja provides a complete biographical journey of these three influential founders, beginning with a dedicated chapter on Freud, followed by Durkheim and then Mauss. He explains each of their revolutionary creations – Freud’s psychoanalysis, Durkheim’s French school of sociology and Mauss’s modern French ethnology – before exploring their ground-breaking, yet differing, conceptions of symbolism and symbolisation, offering a discussion of specific and common aspects detected between these conceptions. In his conclusions, Smadja focusses on France to examine what became of their thoughts after the second half of the 20th century. He inspects the fields of French anthropology, sociology and psychoanalysis: Lévi-Strauss and his structuralist revolution, his colleagues Françoise Héritier and Maurice Godelier, Pierre Bourdieu, who was an ethnologist before becoming a sociologist, and, of course, Lacan. On Symbolism and Symbolisation: The Work of Freud, Durkheim and Mauss is a pioneering work that will appeal to psychoanalysts in practice and in training, and to academics and students of psychology, anthropology, sociology, philosophy and the history of ideas. It will also be of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about the life and work of these three major theorists and the connections between the human and social sciences.

Revival: Maori Symbolism (1926)

An Account of the Origin, Migration and Culture of the New Zealand Maori

‘Maori Symbolism’ is a story of a great race as told in their own Sacred Legends. And it is even more than this. It is an accurate record of the inner meaning of Life Symbolism on which the civilization of the Dark-Whites all over the world is founded. That symbolism stands for Cultivation – of the race, of the body and of the land. The numerous illustrations are to be regarded as documents supporting the evidence reported in the text. Some of this is of startling interest, as for insurance that concerning the casting of ancient statues and megaliths from molten lava. The Sacred Legends concerning the origin and migration of the New Zealand Maori are reported at some length, and the evidence given throws fresh light on the important ‘Diffusion’ controversy. Maori land cultivation is shown to have been far in advance of European. Maori cultivation of the body, expressed in native dances, is demonstrated to be an ordered system of physical education, designed to improve and preserve the fittest. Maori race culture is exhibited as based on a lofty code of social and sexual ethics. Maori religion and philosophy, as expressed in symbolic decoration and writing, are for the first time truthfully explained and interpreted.

An illustrated exploration of the design, meaning and symbolism of world football club crests. Why is there a devil shown on the crest of Manchester United? Which club's crest motto is 'To Dare Is To Do'? And whose emblem depicts a bear and a strawberry tree? From the seahorses of Newcastle United to the royal crown of Real Madrid, via the riveting hammers of West Ham United, Valencia's famous bat design and German club St Pauli's unofficial skull-and-crossbones emblem, there is a story behind every crest, a tale of identity. Covering more than 200 clubs from 20 different leagues, World Football Club Crests explores the design, meaning and symbolism of the game's most famous club crests to reveal why the badges look as they do. This carefully curated collection charts the continuing evolution of the designs and describes the changing styles, varied influences and remarkable controversies that have shaped football's most iconic crests. These important symbols of football heraldry will never be viewed in the same way again.

On page 70 -71 of the Kebra Nagast, Solomon saw in a vision, YHWH as the SUN, come down from heaven in the land of Judah and lighted it up, then went to Ethiopia and never return, This same SUN, as YHWH came down again in a next generation time in the country of Judah, and the Israelites paid no heed to it, and they plotted to extinguish its light, but it rose below the earth and in a place where it was not expected, and it shined upon the country of Ethiopia, Rome and afterwards upon all those who believed in it. This Light is no other the Holy Trinity, and as when Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judah, and Ethiopia as outlined in the chapters above confirming, not only in the Kebra Nagast, The Glory of the Kings but also in the Holy Bible.Blessed be the Holy Trinity Qedamawi Haile Selassie and Dingel Maryam forevermore.

The time of dreaming is the gift of a second life. If we neglect this part of our inner selves it will become chaotic and aggressive. In that case the inner world becomes like everything that is being neglected – not beautiful at all.Most people believe that they are helplessly exposed to the world of dreams and that they can only sit and watch. That's not true. We can do a lot and if we do we will be richly rewarded. What can we do? We can observe our dreams and learn from them. What do they want to tell us? And do we want to understand what they are telling us?Just as the dreams are connected with the everyday life, the daily life is connected with the dreams. What does that mean? In our dreams our souls get visible and alive in their own self made worlds; with all their powers, with their conflicts and their promises. These forces affect the everyday life. Not only our mood but also our destiny.Do we want to be helplessly exposed to these forces? Can we escape them? Wherever one may go these mental powers will always follow.It is better to do the work that our psyche has given us. We mature and grow while doing that and plus the world around us (and in us) gets brighter and more beautiful.

The Symbolism and Communicative Contents of Dreadlocks in Yorubaland

This book offers an interpretation of Yoruba people’s affective responses to an adult Yoruba male with a ‘deviant’ hairstyle. The work, which views hairstyles as a form of symbolic communicative signal that encodes messages that are perceived and interpreted within a culture, provides an ontological and epistemological interpretation of Yoruba beliefs regarding dreadlocks with real-life illustrations of their treatment of an adult male with what they term irun were (insane person’s hairdo). Based on experiential observations as well as socio-cultural and linguistic analyses, the book explores the dynamism of Yoruba worldview regarding head-hair within contemporary belief systems and discusses some of the factors that assure its continuity. It concludes with a cross-cultural comparison of the perceptions of dreadlocks, especially between Nigerian Yoruba people an d African American Yoruba practitioners.

There is much talk about spirituality in our days. Many then think of religion or Far Eastern traditions. But why staring into the distance, the good things are often so close?! We think our old German fairy tales do not need to hide their spiritual message. They are our cultural heritage, and they have a great potential that seems timeless and which can still touch the people from young to old. For this reason we have tried to write down some thoughts to inspire parents and grandparents, to read a book of fairy tales again. Maybe it is sometimes more beneficial for us to read the good fairy tales of old times, rather than the bad fairy tales of modern newspapers. You will find in this book the following fairy tales along with our comments and interpretations as well as many colored illustrations to express the symbolism: Jorinda and Joringel Iron John Rapunzel Hansel and Grethel Rumpelstiltskin Mother Holle Little Red-Cap Hans in Luck Godfather Death The Godfather The Story of the Youth who went forth to learn what Fear was One-Eye, Two-Eyes and Three-Eyes The Old Woman in the Wood Faithful John The Wonderful Musician The White Snake The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs The Girl Without Hands Briar-Rose (or Sleeping Beauty)

The Great Seal of the United States, which was first published in 1935, is a fascinating exposition of the history and spiritual symbolism of an important American emblem that embodies the principles and ideals of the founders of this country. In this book, American occultist, B.O.T.A. founder, teacher and author Dr. Paul Foster Case reveals the Great Seal to be a profound spiritual glyph created by the Founding Fathers as a representation of the ideals of the Novo Ordo Seclorum, the New World Order. A fascinating, thought-provoking read.
