Aus dem Buch: "Die notwendige Richtung aufs Extreme, als welche in philosophischen Untersuchungen die Norm der Begriffsbildung gibt, hat für eine Darstellung vom Ursprung des deutschen Barocktrauerspiels zweierlei zu besagen. Erstens weist sie die Forschung an, unbefangen die Breite des Stoffes ins Auge zu fassen. Angesichts der ohnedies nicht allzu großen Fülle der dramatischen Produktion, soll ihr Anliegen nicht darin bestehen, in ihm, wie die Literaturgeschichte mit Recht dies täte, nach Schulen der Dichter, Epochen des œuvres, Schichten der Einzelwerke zu suchen." Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) war ein deutscher Philosoph, Kulturkritiker und Übersetzer der Werke von Honoré de Balzac, Charles Baudelaire und Marcel Proust. Als undogmatisch positionierter Denker und durch die enge Freundschaft zu u. a. Theodor W. Adorno kann er zum assoziierten Wirkungskreis der Frankfurter Schule gerechnet werden.

White Fragility

Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

Author: Robin DiAngelo

Publisher: Beacon Press

ISBN: 0807047422

Category: Social Science

Page: 192

View: 2883

Release On

The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

You might know what you believe … but do you know that you believe? While many Christians know that they are supposed to believe, they don’t know if they actually do believe. Stop wondering if you have false faith, spurious faith, temporary faith, intellectual faith, or head faith instead of heart faith. All such terms are unhelpful and unbiblical, and cause many Christians to wonder if they have truly believed. By reading this book, you will not only discover how faith works, but also how to know that you believe. This book also answers some of your most pressing questions about faith, such as the relationship between faith and works, whether or not God gives the gift of faith, and how it is possible to be certain about your faith. This book also provides explanations for several key Bible passages about faith.
