Die global vernetzte Welt wird kleiner und lässt uns nach kulturübergreifenden Orientierungen suchen. Politik und Religion brauchen ein Gespräch darüber, was die Einheit der Menschheit ausmacht. Wie kann eine humane Weltkultur aussehen, die Erfahrungen der europäischen Welt nicht einfach universalisiert? Christoph Antweiler bringt die Debatte um globale Ethik erstmals mit breiten kulturvergleichenden Erkenntnissen zusammen und befragt zentrale Positionen zu Kosmopolitismus und Weltgesellschaft, etwa von Anthony Appiah und Martha Nussbaum, auf ihre Tauglichkeit für den interkulturellen Umgang.

​​​Der Band bietet die Ergebnisse des internationalen Forschungsprojekts Identitätsbildung im europäischen Geschäftsbericht – Shaping Identities in European Annual Reports , der in Kooperation zwischen Universitäten aus Deutschland, Dänemark, den Niederlanden und Finnland entstanden ist. Die Beiträge zeigen, wie sich die Frage der einzigartigen Positionierbarkeit sowohl aus unternehmensstrategischer als auch aus nationaler Perspektive systematisch erfassen und gewinnbringend umsetzen lässt. Neben ausgiebigen kulturkontrastiven Untersuchungen zu Tendenzen und Entwicklungen im heutigen europäischen Umfeld werden auch jeweils Konsequenzen für die Anwendbarkeit der Ergebnisse im Bereich der mittlerweile sehr breit ausgerichteten unternehmensexternen Investor-Relations-Kommunikation gezogen. Somit gehen die einzelnen Studien vom Umfang und der Aussagerelevanz her weit über den Bereich traditioneller Sammelband-Beiträge hinaus und bieten auch Einsichten für die internationale Praxis der IR-Kommunikation.​

Clinical settings are dynamic educational spaces that present both opportunities and barriers to learning and teaching. Designed to inform, challenge and educate health professionals about the evidence underpinning clinical education practices and outcomes, this multi-disciplinary book brings together important concepts in healthcare education and addresses context and processes of learning, professional identity and socialisation, feedback and assessment, ethics, and inter-professional education. The authors encourage teaching and learning practices based on research findings, expertise and innovation, and the development of individual teaching methods and styles from a theoretical base that provides relevant principles, direction and support. With clear links between theory, research and practice, collaboration from a broad range of clinical disciplines, and models for learning and teaching grounded in empirical research, Clinical Education in the Health Professions will become a standard reference for all health professionals and educators. examines patterns of practice in clinical education in the health professions, using a qualitative research focus identifies the roles of university and clinical educators, students, peers and patients in clinical education highlights implicit tensions in clinical education practice and presents strategies to identify and address such tensions challenges the reader to consider new approaches to clinical education that may optimise students’ learning and enculturation into the health professions Despite claims that clinical education lies at the heart of health care education, little empirical research has explored what constitutes effectiveness in clinical teaching and learning. This book draws on the research, ideas and expertise of researchers who have observed and researched different aspects of clinical education. Their research has spanned clinical education topics including professional identity and socialisation, assessment and feedback, pedagogical methods, clinical reasoning, dealing with ambiguity, dealing with diversity and interprofessional education. This book has been designed to synthesise empirical clinical education research and ideas about the context, value, processes and outcomes of clinical education. Each chapter presents a research based facet of clinical education as a platform from which knowledge and future research in clinical education can occur. The authors entice the reader to reconceptualise facets of their own teaching and learning practices based on research findings, expertise and innovation.

Located in a wide spectrum of current research and practice, from analyses of green ideology and imagery, enviromental law and policy, and local enviromental activism in the West to ethnographic studies of relationships between humans and their enviroments in hunter/gatherer societies, Enviromentalism: The View from Anthropology offers an original perspective on what is probably the best-known issue of the late twentieth century.

Rituals of Manhood provides some of the most dramatic and richly textured accounts of ritual passages known to anthropologists of the late twentieth century. When in an earlier time anthropologists and sociologists described collective initiation rituals, the political and gender aspects of these practices were seldom underscored. Today, the power relationships of the body and domination, and the social arena of gender politics are widely regarded as critical to the cultural meaning and interpretation. Gilbert H. Herdt is the editor.

Nature Across Cultures: Views of Nature and the Environment in Non-Western Cultures consists of about 25 essays dealing with the environmental knowledge and beliefs of cultures outside of the United States and Europe. In addition to articles surveying Islamic, Chinese, Native American, Aboriginal Australian, Indian, Thai, and Andean views of nature and the environment, among others, the book includes essays on Environmentalism and Images of the Other, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Worldviews and Ecology, Rethinking the Western/non-Western Divide, and Landscape, Nature, and Culture. The essays address the connections between nature and culture and relate the environmental practices to the cultures which produced them. Each essay contains an extensive bibliography. Because the geographic range is global, the book fills a gap in both environmental history and in cultural studies. It should find a place on the bookshelves of advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and scholars, as well as in libraries serving those groups.

Navigators of the Contemporary

Why Ethnography Matters

As the image of anthropologists exploring exotic locales and filling in blanks on the map has faded, the idea that cultural anthropology has much to say about the contemporary world has likewise diminished. In an increasingly smaller world, how can anthropology help us to tackle the concerns of a global society? David A. Westbrook argues that the traditional tool of the cultural anthropologist—ethnography—can still function as an intellectually exciting way to understand our interconnected, yet mysterious worlds. Navigators of the Contemporary describes the changing nature of ethnography as anthropologists use it to analyze places closer to home. Westbrook maintains that a conversational style of ethnography can help us look beyond our assumptions and gain new insight into arenas of contemporary life such as corporations, financial institutions, science, the military, and religion. Westbrook’s witty, absorbing book is a friendly challenge to anthropologists to shed light on the present and join broader streams of intellectual life. And for those outside the discipline, his inspiring vision of ethnography opens up the prospect of understanding our own world in much greater depth.
