Ausarbeitungen und Entwürfe zum 2.Band der Einleitung in die Geisteswissenschaften (ca. 1970-1895); hrsg. von H. Johach u. F. Rodi. --- Wilhelm Dilthey (* 19. November 1833 in Biebrich; † 1. Oktober 1911 in Seis am Schlern, Südtirol) war ein deutscher Theologe, Gymnasiallehrer und Philosoph. Entgegen dem zu seiner Zeit stark verbreiteten Naturalismus entwickelte Dilthey ein lebensphilosophisches Fundament, welches das menschliche Leben und die Formen seines Ausdrucks nicht mehr nur nach Naturgesetzlichkeiten erklärte, sondern vielmehr die Eigengesetzlichkeit des menschlichen Geisteslebens zu verstehen suchte. Dilthey baute diesen Ansatz wissenschaftstheoretisch aus und formulierte in Abgrenzung zu den Naturwissenschaften eine Theorie der Geisteswissenschaften, als deren Begründer er gilt. Als deren Methode entwickelte er die Hermeneutik und die verstehende Psychologie in wesentlicher Weise weiter. Zur empirischen Anwendung brachte Dilthey seine Methoden in der Weltanschauungslehre, einem Deutungsschema für die seiner Meinung nach gescheiterten Systeme der Metaphysik. In ihr versuchte Dilthey aufzuzeigen, wie alle unterschiedlichen und sich widersprechenden metaphysischen Systeme ihren gemeinsamen Ursprung im Lebenszusammenhang des Menschen haben, zugleich kategorisierte er die historischen Ansätze nach verschiedenen \"Typen der Weltanschauung\". … Der Naturalismus hat als Strömung seit dem 17. Jahrhundert dazu geführt, dass ein mechanisch-kausales Naturverständnis auch auf das Innenleben des Menschen übertragen wurde, also seinem Geistes- und Gefühlsvermögen dieselben kausalen Gesetze unterstellt wurden, wie man sie bei der physikalischen Beschreibung der Natur vorfand. Kant hat dieses Problem zu lösen versucht, indem er die physikalische Natur als Naturbeschreibung durch die reine Vernunft auffasste. Diese Unterscheidung setzt eine Trennung von Ding an sich und Erscheinungen voraus. Dabei sind es laut Kant nur die Erscheinungen, die der Verstand in der Anschauung erfassen kann und denen sich Kausalität zusprechen lässt. Ob die Kausalität jedoch auch dem hinter der Erscheinung liegenden Ding an sich zukommt, bleibt ungewiss. Diese Erklärung hat allerdings nicht dazu geführt, dass die Naturwissenschaft ihre Ergebnisse als Konstruktionsmittel und hypothetische Erkenntnisse wertete. Vielmehr fand die Auffassung, dass die Naturwissenschaften ihren Gegenstand unmittelbar erklären könnten, einen ersten Höhepunkt im Positivismus und Naturalismus, wie ihn Comte und Mill vertraten. Hier ergab sich für Dilthey das offensichtliche Problem, dass, wenn alle Vernunftprozesse kausal determiniert sind, auch die positivistische und naturalistische Auffassung des Menschen selbst determiniert ist. Damit hebt sich jedoch der Anspruch auf Gewissheit unter verschiedenen alternativen Auffassungen selbst auf. Diltheys Lösung besteht in der Unterscheidung von Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften, welche zugleich die Autonomie und Freiheit des Vernunftwesens Mensch wiederherstellen soll: Statt in den Naturzusammenhang band Dilthey den Menschen dabei in den Geschichts- und Kulturzusammenhang ein, innerhalb dessen sich seine geistige Spontaneität zeigt und ausbildet. So wie Kant mit seiner Kritik der reinen Vernunft die erkenntnistheoretische Grundlage der Naturwissenschaften zu erklären versuchte, bemühte sich Dilthey in seinem lebenslangen Projekt einer Kritik der historischen Vernunft, die Grundlage für die von ihm so benannten Geisteswissenschaften zu legen. Der Titel einer historischen Vernunft zeigt dabei schon Diltheys Kritik an Kant. So ist bei Dilthey die Vernunft keine überzeitliche und unveränderliche Größe eines individuellen Subjekts, sondern hat ihre Ausprägung im Verlauf der Geschichte erfahren und wird dadurch konstatiert. In sie fließen also auch die geschichtlich gewordenen Handlungen und Praktiken des Kulturwesens Mensch mit ein. Diltheys grundsätzlich geschichtliche Orientierung ging dabei auf J.G. Droysens geschichtsphilosophische Vorstellungen des Historismus zurück. Die Kritik der historischen Vernunft bezieht sich jedoch nicht nur auf Kant, sondern erhebt Anspruch darauf, die gesamte Geschichte der Metaphysik zu betrachten. In Anlehnung an Hegels Phänomenologie des Geistes bezeichnete Dilthey sein Programm auch als Phänomenologie der Metaphysik. Anders als bei Hegel führte er den geschichtlichen Prozess nicht zu einem metaphysischen System des absoluten Wissens zusammen, welches schließlich absolute Gewissheit bieten sollte. Vielmehr nimmt seine Betrachtung den umgekehrten Weg, nämlich zu zeigen, wie sich eine Weltanschauung erst durch die vielen kleinen Gewissheiten ausprägt, die in der unmittelbaren Gewissheit des Erlebnisses und des Lebens selbst wurzeln. Dieses dient ihm dann auch als Fundament zur Begründung der Geisteswissenschaften. Ihr Ziel ist ein \"Verstehen des Lebens und der Geschichte\".

Pringle, Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, p. 61. First serialized in Astounding magazine. "Early instance of using children's science fiction for explaining and pushing ideas [here, alternate ways of organizing society] rather than merely relating exciting incidents." (Anatomy of Wonder) Between 1947 and 1958, Scribner's brought out one new Heinlein juvenile title a year. (This is the twelfth, of thirteen.) "What they have in common, beginning with the second book in the series, is that they center, not merely on Bildung, but on what C. G.. Jung called the "Individuation Crisis," in which a young person distinguishes himself from the psychological matrices of family and peer group and takes on personal, adult responsibilities. . . . Heinlein had written individuation stories before, but his explorations of this storytelling form extended and enriched the entire field of children's writing. . . . The series of Heinlein's juvenile books is considered by some critics to be the finest and most important portion of Heinlein's entire body of work. They have remained continuously in print for more than fifty years."

Nachdem Gotsch in den ersten Nachkriegsjahren vorrangig kulturpolitisch tätig ist, konzentriert er sich ab 1951 wieder vollständig auf seine künstlerische Arbeit. Nach einer Phase intensiver Auseinandersetzung mit dem Kubismus Picassos und des Experimentierens mit abstrakten Darstellungsformen entwickelt der Künstler den für sein weiteres Werk typischen \"späten Expressionismus\".

"Visual art was of great importance to Murdoch and is a dominant strand in the novels, as well as being an idiosyncratic element in her moral philosophy. (Murdoch sees the creation of, and attention to, good art as a moral issue.) She thought that she might have been an art historian or a painter had it not been for the war, and her novels frequently feature painters as major characters, as, for example, in The Sandcastle."

        Talented Mr. Ripley, The

      London: Cresset Press, 1957. First Impression. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First UK Edition. 8vo; 266pp. Publisher's red cloth, the spine lettered in gilt (a bit dulled); in a pictorial dust jacket lettered in black and priced at 15/-. Offsetting to the end papers, spotting to the page edges and the first and final few leaves, otherwise a clean, Near Fine copy, in a Near Fine jacket with a lightly faded and toned spine (the head of which has very shallow chipping), and a soiled back panel; the front panel sharp and bright. This, Highsmith's third novel, introduces Tom Ripley, sexually ambiguous con artist featured in five of her novels, popularly known as the Ripliad, written between 1955 and 1991. After a television adaptation in 1956, the novel was filmed by René Clément with Alain Delon, praised by Highsmith as the ideal Ripley. Re-filmed in 1999, with Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works (our specialty). According to Highsmith's talented biographer, Joan Schenkar, the 'Dark Lady of American Letters' has always taken as her subject, in all her writing, "the double, the Alter Ego, and its natural enabler: the alluring and dangerous act of self-transformation. She first proposed it in "Strangers on a Train" [her first masterpiece], turning Plato upside down to make it work: 'There's also a person exactly the opposite of you, like the unseen part of you, somewhere in the world, and he waits in ambush.' In The Talented Mr. Ripley [Highsmith's second, uncontested masterpiece], she gave it a triumphant shape—the shape of the American Dream—and a successful form in the character of Tom Ripley, a young grifter of indeterminate sexuality, who, like his creator, wants only 'the best' in life, slips in and out of different roles with ease, confuses love with murder, and gets away with everything."

        William Blake's Illustrations to the Bible

      Trianon Press, (France) 1957 - No. 219 of 506, Atlas Folio - over 23" to 25" tall, 82 p. In his "Life of William Blake" (1863) Alexander Gilchrist warned his readers that Blake "neither wrote nor drew for the many, hardly for work'y-day men at all, rather for children and angels; himself 'a divine child,' whose playthings were sun, moon, and stars, the heavens and the earth" (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation). William Blake (1757 - 1827) is arguably the most original and highly-regarded English author - unusual in that he excelled both as an author and an artist. Although thought mad by his contemporaries, he was held in high regard for his expressiveness and for the synthesis of philosophical and mystical senses within his work. Blake's work has been spectacularly reproduced by Arnold Fawkus and his Trianon Press, which has an undeniable claim to being the finest press of its kind in the last century and has long been known for their unrivaled artworks in fine colour printing. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in half black leather, marbled boards with vellum tips, gilt lettering on spine, there are 208 entries in this list of all the tempera and water-colour paintings Blake is known to have made of illustrations of the Bible, all the paintings presently locatable are reproduced in small dimensions, with a few full-page and in full colour; frontispiece was printed in lithography by Mourlot, Paris, and Plate I in collotype and stencil by Jacomet, Paris, Plates II to VII were printed in colour collotype by Emery Walker Ltd., London, the monochrome collotype pages were printed in Paris on Arches pure rag paper by Trianon Press and Hourdebaigt; the collotype layouts were prepared by PeterBusche, the text pages were set by hand in 18 point Centaur and Colchester.

        Lee Harvey Oswald's only dress clothes: a gray two-piece suit that he wore at his wedding to Marina in April 1961

      c. 1957. various. "A gray wool two-piece suit (jacket and trousers) with his name ""Lee H. Oswald"" finely embroidered in yellow thread immediately above the right-side inside pocket of the jacket. Typical age wear including several minor moth holes and soiling, trousers faded slightly due to more frequent wear than the jacket over time, else fine condition overall.Oswald purchased this suit while still in the Marine Corps during his time at Naval Air Facility Atsugi near Yokohama, Japan from September 1957 to October 1958. Beneath the left-hand inside jacket pocket, there is an outline where a manufacturer's label appeared which matches the size of a blue wool overcoat he purchased from a Yokohama tailor named Kawashima (who apparently is still in business as of this writing.) Apparently his only dress clothes, Oswald brought this suit along when he defected to the Soviet Union in October 1959, and it appears in at least three photographs dating from that period--including one taken on his wedding day on April 30, 1961. The suit is described briefly in the Warren Commission report: ""Oswald owned one suit, of Russian make and purchase, poor fitting and of heavy fabric which, despite its unsuitability to the comates of Texas and Louisiana and his obvious discomfort, he wore on the few occasions that required dress."" (Earl Warren, et al, Report of the Warren Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy. 1964, p. 329)Obtained directly from the Oswald family, with a signed letter of provenance from Lee's brother Robert Oswald."

        Angel.

      London: Peter Davies, 1957 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine silver. With the dust jacket. Some faint marks to cloth, light spotting to edges and a strip of tanning to endpapers, a very good copy in the jacket rubbed at the extremities with small chips to the ends and corners and with a faint ring to front panel. First edition, first impression. The novel relates the publishing successes of a disturbingly unreflective and romantic young girl, based in part on late-Victorian novelist Marie Corelli. Matthew Walther observed (in a Spectator review of the recent reissue of Angel with an introduction by Hilary Mantel) how Angel, "convinced of her own genius. writes tawdry bestseller after tawdry bestseller and torments everyone around her. The book is not really a roman à clef so much as it is a kind of horrifying anti-memoir, Taylor's sounding of her own experience and dredging up her worst fears as a young female writer: mawkishness, philistinism, naïveté, stupidity, solipsism."
