    • Type: E-Book
    • Publication Date: August 2012
    • + Show Description - Hide Description
    • Dieses philosophisch-mystische „Gespräch“ mit Meister Eckhart versucht nicht nur, im anfangslosen Leben und der durch keine weitere Bestimmung verstandenen „Gottheit“ eine strukturelle Übereinstimmung aufzuweisen, sondern daraus zugleich eine notwendige Kulturerneuerung zu gewinnen. This book pursues an in-depth discussion between Eckhart's mysticism and Henry’s radical or material phenomenology of life. Such an encounter opens up a path for the future, which does not arrange singularity and universality against each another but rather integrates them as a merged “action.”
  • <i>Wh</i>-Clauses in English
    • Type: E-Book
    • Publication Date: January 2000
    • + Show Description - Hide Description
    • This study provides the first description-oriented, theoretically-unaligned account of<I>wh</I>-clauses in Modern English. The author employs a data-based approach to examine aspects of both generative and non-generative work as regards their relative strengths and weaknesses. <I>Wh-</I>clauses in English: Aspects of Theory and Description is a unique combination of statistical findings and qualitative analysis. It is not only underpinned by a systematic investigation of the Brown University corpus but also includes attested material from other sources such as the British National Corpus, the CobuildDirect corpus as well as material gleaned from the internet. The qualitative and quantitative analyses are combined to approach a wide range of theoretical and descriptive issues, such as wh-movement, landing-sites for moved wh-XPs, vacuous movement, island constraints, among others. Not insignificantly, many questions of indeterminacy are addressed, such as the interface of conjunctions and relative words, the problems of demarcation between interrogatives and free relatives as well as structural ambiguities between interrogatives and exclamatives.

  • 'A Cheap, Safe and Natural Medicine'
    • Type: E-Book
    • Publication Date: January 2007

    • John Wesley’s <I>Primitive Physic</I> (1747) achieved twenty-three editions in his lifetime, ensuring its popular – and controversial – status in eighteenth-century medicine. This is the first full-length study to examine the theological, intellectual and cultural background to one of the period’s most successful medical texts. By exploring Wesley’s work in the context of his theology, ‘<I>A Cheap, Safe and Natural Medicine</I>’ extends the on-going reconfiguration of the relationship between religion and medicine. Wesley was on a theological mission to recover the primitive purity of the first Christians. Yet the remedies contained within <I>Primitive Physic</I> suggest a pragmatic thinker, whose concern for spiritual health did not prevent him from providing practical assistance to those who needed it. The evolution of Wesley’s thinking also demonstrates some of the struggles he faced as leader of the Methodist movement, such as the way he handled contemporary criticism of <I>Primitive Physic</I> when religious ‘enthusiasm’ was often conflated with medical ‘quackery’. <I>'A Cheap, Safe and Natural Medicine'</I> will be of interest not only to medical and literary historians, but to anyone who is interested in the way religion influences medicine.

    • Tuberculosis mortality in the United States and in Britain was declining in the late nineteenth century but rising in Ireland. Only in the first decade of the twentieth century did mortality from tuberculosis begin to fall and even then it remained higher in Ireland than in Britain and many other European nations throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Why Ireland’s pattern of tuberculosis mortality was different is the subject of this book. Several controversies in the history of tuberculosis epidemics are addressed; the degree to which poverty and standard of living played a part in the tuberculosis decline, the role of public health, urbanisation and gender. Because tuberculosis was comparatively higher in Ireland it remained a much more potent political issue well into the twentieth century and the interaction between Ireland’s politics and the question of tuberculosis is discussed.
