Doctoral students were invited to the Doctoral Consortium held in conjunction with the main conference of ECIR 2013. The Doctoral Consortium aimed to provide a constructive setting for presentations and discussions of doctoral students’ research projects with senior researchers and other participating students. The two main goals of the Doctoral Consortium were: 1) to advise students regarding current critical issues in their research; and 2) to make students aware of the strengths and weakness of their research as viewed from different perspectives. The Doctoral Consortium was aimed for students in the middle of their thesis projects; at minimum, students ought to have formulated their research problem, theoretical framework and suggested methods, and at maximum, students ought to have just initiated data analysis.     The Doctoral Consortium took place on Sunday, March 24, 2013, at the ECIR 2013 venue, and participation is by invitation only. The format was designed as follows: The doctoral students presents summaries of their work to other participating doctoral students and the senior researchers. Each presentation was followed by a plenary discussion, and individual discussion with one senior advising researcher. The discussions in the group and with the advisors were intended to help the doctoral student to reflect on and carry on with their thesis work.

This volume results from a conference of Russian and British scholars of ancient history. It studies crises of various kinds in the history of civil communities in the Graeco-Roman world. Some chapters concern the main lines of Greek and Roman political development: instability in the Greek cities, the adaptation of aristocrats to the democracy of Athens, empire and crisis in fourth-century Greece; in the Roman Republic the dictatorship, the tribunate, changes in institutional arrangements which had far-reaching but unforeseen consequences; also in Rome the transition from the Middle to the Late Empire.

Others focus on particular episodes where new interpretations are possible: a 'crisis of the pyramid-builders' in Egypt which Herodotus misdated by more than a millennium; two problematic episodes in the hellenistic world, concerning Caunus, and Cius and Myrlea; in the Roman world, in connection with the transition from the Republic to the Principate an examination (particularly suitable for a Russian conference) of the interpretations of Russian scholars a century ago, and, finally, the survival of Neoplatonic communities in the Late Empire.

This book seeks to “re-think democracy.” Over the past years, there has been a tendency in the global policy community and, even more widely, in the world’s media, to focus on democracy as the “gold standard” by which all things political are measured. This book re-examines democracy in Russia and in the world more generally, as idea, desired ideal, and practice. A major issue for Russia is whether the modernization of Russia might not prosper better by Russia focusing directly on modernization and not worrying too much about democracy. This book explores a wide range of aspects of this important question. It discusses how the debate is conducted in Russia; outlines how Russians contrast their own experiences, unfavourably, with the experience of China, where reform and modernization have been pursued with great success, with no concern for democracy; and concludes by assessing how the debate in Russia is likely to be resolved.

Die epochalen Umbrüche im Denken der Frühen Neuzeit waren für die Ausbildung des Weltbilds der Moderne von prägender Kraft. Die Entdeckungen und Neuorientierungen, die Europa in der Zeit zwischen 1400 und 1700 bewegten, bilden nicht nur die Vorgeschichte der Gegenwart, sondern markieren deren Beginn. Unsere moderne Zivilisation ist weitgehend ein Produkt jener epochalen Revolutionen im Welt- und Menschenbild, die mit der Frühen Neuzeit einsetzten. Die Philosophie, welche zwischen 1400 und 1700 die technischen Erfindungen, wissenschaftlichen Entdeckungen und geistigen Umbrüche in Europa teils vorantrieb, teils gedanklich verarbeitete, verstand sich nicht als empirieferne Spezialdisziplin in Konkurrenz zu anderen Fachdisziplinen, sondern als die prinzipielle Avantgarde bei der Eroberung von Neuland in allen Wissenschaften.

'Departure for Modern Europe (Aufbruch in das moderne Europa' präsentiert eine interdisziplinäre Gesamtbilanz der Erneuerungen und Neuansätze in allen Bereichen der tätigen Weltgestaltung und intellektuellen Welterfassung der Frühen Neuzeit. Das Handbuch umfasst 106 in deutscher, englischer und französischer Sprache geschriebene Beiträge, die von Experten internationalen Ranges verfasst wurden. Die Beiträge zu diesem Handbuch widmen sich den großen Erfindungen wie Buchdruck, Schießpulver und Kompass, die nach Bacon das Antlitz der neuen Zeit prägen; sie verfolgen die Strategien der Zähmung von Gewalt angesichts verheerender Religionskriege, aber auch der libertinistischen und radikalaufklärerischen Verabschiedung der alten Mächte; sie analysieren signifikante geistige Etappen der Alchemie und der Utopie; und sie rekonstruieren vor allem jene übergreifenden Tendenzen der Frühen Neuzeit, in deren gemeinsamem Fluchtpunkt unsere moderne Welt liegt: Entdeckung der Ökonomie als eines Motors gesellschaftlichen Fortschritts, Technisierung, Säkularisierung, Individualisierung, Subjektivierung, Mechanisierung, staatliche Neutralisierung, Entteleologisierung in der Ethik, wissenschaftlicher Fortschritt, Europa als Idee etc.

Iris Bäcker. Muenchen: Wilhelm Fink Verlag, 2014.

Was ist das für eine Lust an der Lektüre, um derentwillen der Literaturliebhaber immer wieder zur Literatur greift? Worin bestünde für den Leser die Attraktivität der Literatur, wenn nicht eben darin, dass sie alle seine menschlichen Vermögen in Anspruch nimmt die sinnlichen genauso wie die intellektuellen, die ethischen und die ästhetischen? Ausgerechnet die klassische Wirkungsästhetik, die doch eigentlich den Leser aus seinem Schattendasein heraus- und in die Literaturtheorie hatte einführen wollen, handelt von dem Wirkungspotential des literarischen Textes, und nicht davon, wie der Leser mit allen seinen Vermögen auf dieses Wirkungspotential anspricht. In Absehung von und zugleich in Berücksichtigung der Wirkungsästhetik konkretisiert Iris Bäcker die Rede vom Leser in kulturhistorischer und literaturdidaktischer Perspektive.

Harmony and Counterpoint in J. F. Herbart’s Psychology and Aesthetics

The realist J. F. Herbart (1776‐1841), an original follower of Kant and chief opponent of German Idealism, was particularly concerned with music in his life as well as in his philosophy. Der musikalische Herbart is the conceptual reconstruction of his theoretical reflection, involving metaphysics, psychology, and aesthetics: it is by his multidisciplinary, relational approach that Herbart contributes his original philosophy of music. In contrast to Kant, he defends the possibility of scientific psychology, which he establishes upon metaphysics, mathematics, and experience. Herbart investigates tone relations applying psychological laws and mechanisms: intervals, chords, melody, consonance, dissonance, and even equal temperament are analysed as psychological products and explained through the notions of the tone line (a kind of musical a priori) and “musical thinking”. At the same time, musical thinking can be seen as a principle of aesthetical legality, since Herbart’s account of tone relations forms the core of his rigorously formalistic aesthetics of music. His concept of music finally proves to be pivotal for later tone psychology. Review: Maier, M. (2008). Die Musikforschung, 2, 164–165

Edited by: C. Scharf, H. Möller, M. Lavrinovich. Vol. 1: Das 18. Jahrhundert. Herausgegeben von Horst Möller, Claus Scharf, Wassili Dudarew und Maja Lawrinowitsch. Oldenbourg: De Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2018.

The western opening of Russia under Peter I and Catherine II, the formation of modern state in the German territorial states and their further development in the era of enlightened absolutism, Russia’s rise to great power and the emergence of the European “pentarchy”, diverse dynastic connections and cultural influences, the revolutionization of Europe by Napoleon and the defense of Napoleonic imperialism – it is a multifarious history in which German-Russian relations and contexts are integrated in the “long 18th century”. This volume illustrates these connections in 35 joint contributions by German and Russian historians. Short factual representations, supplemented by documents and images, shed light on the development of German-Russian interactions. The volume continues the three-part work “Germany-Russia: Stations of Common History, Places of Commemoration”, of which the volume on the 20th century was published earlier, and the next one – on the 19th century – will follow soon.

The book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students of the Higher School of Economics. Its main objective is developing academic skills, namely enriching students’ academic vocabulary, which is an integral part of their professional education. Being able to use appropriate academic vocabulary in writing is essential for this kind of activity.

Developing Academic Literacy correlates with the book Academic Vocabulary in Use by Michael McCarthy and Felicity O’Dell (Cambridge University Press, 2008) and can be used as a source of additional exercises to practice topics covered there. Out of 50 units presented in this book we have chosen 45 which are of particular importance for the context of the National Research University. However, each unit of the present book contains not only practical exercises but also a theoretical part explaining the use of studied lexical units. Thus, the book can be used independently. As each unit covers a different lexical topic, the units can be studied in any order.

The tasks are aimed at both recognizing the lexis (on its own and within short contexts) and using it. The exercises comprise such tasks as matching words with their definitions, synonyms, antonyms, completing sentences with appropriate words, matching parts of sentences. Special attention is paid to collocations in academic context. The illustrative examples have mostly been taken from the British National Corpus, the Corpus of Contemporary American English and monolingual English dictionaries.

The book can be used both in class and individually. The exercises are provided with the Key, which allows students to check their answers, and, thus, makes the book suitable for self-study purposes. The book is provided with the Resource bank, which consists of abstracts from academic articles. All the abstracts contain lexical units studied in the book and can be used as a source of additional exercises by a teacher or self-check material by a student.
