Download Philosophical Languages in the Seventeenth Century: by Jaap Maat PDF

By Jaap Maat

This e-book discusses 3 linguistic tasks conducted within the 17th century: the substitute languages created through Dalgamo and Wilkins, and Leibniz's uncompleted scheme. It treats all the tasks as self­ contained undertakings, which need to be studied and judged of their personal correct. hence, the 2 man made languages, in addition to Leib­ niz's paintings during this region, are defined in massive element. while, the features of those schemes are associated with their highbrow context, and their a number of interrelations are tested at a few size. during this manner, the ebook seeks to mix a systematical with a historic ap­ proach to the topic, within the wish that either methods make the most of the combo. while I first begun the learn on which this publication is predicated, I meant to seem in basic terms in brief into the seventeenth-century schemes, which i presumed represented a regular universalist method of the examine of lan­ guage, in preference to a relativistic one. The authors of those schemes notion, or so the belief was once, that nearly the one factor required for a really common language used to be the systematic labelling of the goods of an it seems that on hand, common catalogue of every little thing that exists.

By Jean François Billeter,Tim Trzaskalik

In seiner langjährigen Auseinandersetzung mit der Sprache, dem Denken und der Geistesgeschichte Chinas stellte sich dem Sinologen Jean François Billeter mehr und mehr die Frage, used to be uns befähigen könnte, sowohl das Gemeinsame als auch das Verschiedene beider Welten deutlicher zu sehen und zu verstehen. Er fragt sich unter anderem, ob sich eine Auffassung des menschlichen Subjektes finden ließe, die den gemeinsamen Grund, auf dem beide Traditionen notwendigerweise stehen, zugänglich machen könnte. Ein Paradigma ist ein erster Versuch, eine solche Auffassung des Subjektes nicht nur als hermeneutisches Hilfsmittel zur Erkundung Chinas zu nutzen, sondern als einen selbstständigen philosophischen Ansatz darzulegen.

Download Kommunikationsmechanismen des ADAC zum Tempolimit auf by Johannes Kempen PDF

By Johannes Kempen

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Politik - Grundlagen und Allgemeines, observe: 1,3, FernUniversität Hagen (Politikwissenschaft IV: Politik und Verwaltung), Veranstaltung: Staat, Verwaltung und politische Interessenvermittlung, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die freie Fahrt gilt als deutsche Besonderheit. Kein vergleichbar entwickeltes Land der Welt verzichtet auf eine Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung für seine Autobahnen und alle bisherigen Vorstöße für ein dauerhaftes Tempolimit scheiterten. Entsprechend ist die Diskussion ein ständiges Thema der Verkehrspolitik. Eine Konstante im Widerstand gegen ein Tempolimit ist der ADAC, der sich mit Vehemenz und nicht immer sachlich gegen eine Regulierung wehrt: So erhebt der zum geflügelten Wort gewordene Slogan „Freie Fahrt für freie Bürger“ aus den 1970er Jahren das unbeschränkte Autofahren kurzerhand zum Grundrecht. Nach eigener Aussage kämpft der ADAC für die Interessen seiner Mitglieder, suggerierend, dass die deutliche Mehrheit der deutschen Autofahrer ein Tempolimit ablehnt.

Der ADAC ist ohnehin ein Akteur, dem bisher wenig Aufmerksamkeit seitens der Wissenschaft zukam, der sie aber verdient. Dies ist durch drei Aspekte herauszustellen: Der Struktur des golf equipment, seiner Funktion und seiner Strategie. Strukturell bemerkenswert ist bereits die Größe: Seit der deutschen Wiedervereinigung konnte der membership seine Mitgliederzahl von etwa neun auf über 18 Millionen verdoppeln. Wenn der membership politische Forderungen äußert, wird diese große Mitgliederbasis stets betont. Von vielen Seiten wird dem ADAC dabei eine Doppelfunktion als Verein und als Verband zugestanden. Als Verein kommt dem ADAC in erster Linie eine Dienstleistungsfunktion gegenüber seinen Mitgliedern zu. Die klassischen Dienstleistungen bestehen dabei aus Pannen- und Unfallhilfe – was once auch für einen Beitritt das wesentliche Motiv sein wird. Der ADAC strebt nach growth und baut entsprechend seine Anreize für Mitglieder immer weiter aus.
In Abgrenzung zu anderen Vereinen kommt dem ADAC auch eine Funktion als Verband zu. Als solcher – so sei hier knapp definiert – agiert der membership immer dann, wenn er versucht, politischen Einfluss zu nehmen. Diese Dienstleistung des Mitregierens sollte dagegen kein Beitrittsmotiv sein, unterstellt wird vielmehr, dass sie den Eigeninteressen des golf equipment dient.

Einflussnahme, so die grundlegende those dieser Arbeit, erfolgt sowohl gegenüber der Politik als auch den eigenen Mitgliedern. Bezogen auf die Diskussion um ein Tempolimit auf Autobahnen führt dies zu folgender Fragestellung: Mittels welcher Mechanismen kommuniziert der ADAC zwischen der Wiedervereinigung und der Bundestagswahl 2013 seine Ablehnung eines Tempolimits auf deutschen Autobahnen?
