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.

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.

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.

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.

Symbols are often seen as constituting an international language and to some extent they do, but that language is far from universal--context means everything in this complicated but engrossing form of communication. Take, for example, a cross, a crane, or a swastika: each one has a different and distinct significance and meaning for a Buddhist, an art historian, or a student of the occult. 1000 Symbols resolves the problem by offering groupings of related symbols, every one with a neat definition of its history and its cross-cultural meanings.

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.

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)

Ein verstörter junger Mann bittet den privaten Ermittler Cormoran Strike um Hilfe bei der Aufklärung eines Verbrechens, das er – so glaubt er – als Kind mit angesehen hat. Strike ist beunruhigt: Billy hat offensichtlich psychische Probleme und kann sich nur an wenig im Detail erinnern, doch er wirkt aufrichtig. Bevor Strike ihn allerdings ausführlich befragen kann, ergreift der Mann panisch die Flucht. Um Billys Geschichte auf den Grund zu gehen, folgen Strike und Robin Ellacott – einst seine Assistentin, jetzt seine Geschäftspartnerin – einer verschlungenen Spur, die sie durch die zwielichtigen Ecken Londons, in die oberen Kreise des Parlaments und zu einem prachtvollen, doch düsteren Herrenhaus auf dem Land führt. Zugleich verläuft auch Strikes eigenes Leben alles andere als gradlinig: Er hat es als Ermittler zu Berühmtheit gebracht und kann sich nicht länger unauffällig hinter den Kulissen bewegen. Noch dazu ist das Verhältnis zu seiner früheren Assistentin schwieriger denn je – zwar ist Robin für ihn geschäftlich mittlerweile unersetzlich, ihre private Beziehung ist jedoch viel komplizierter ...

Symbolism appeared in France and Europe between the 1880s and the beginning of the 20th century. The Symbolists, fascinated with ancient mythology, attempted to escape the reign of rational thought imposed by science. They wished to transcend the world of the visible and the rational in order to attain the world of pure thought, constantly flirting with the limits of the unconscious.The French Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, the Belgians Fernand Khnopff and Félicien Rops, the English Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and the Dutch Jan Toorop are the most representative artists of the movement.
