Beginning with this thematic and methodological clarification, we asked Macho to outline the path of his research and study, the themes that have most fascinated him, his ties to Italian theory and culture, and his future projects, in the belief that the best way to understand and spread awareness of the science of culture is to give the floor to one of its greatest living practitioners. The wondrous creatures, monsters and prodigies inhabited the frontiers of the world and therefore of the imagination, at the same time they dwelled in the towns, physical and tangible manifestations among the living. This work deals with the rules for correct behavior, such as table manners, matters of conversation, fashion, dance, letter writing, appropriate public appearance, and the etiquette between men and women. If so, it ought not to seem incongruous that, just as there are some monstrosities within the various races of mankind, so within the whole human race there should be certain monstrous peoples. In which aspects and authors of Italian culture are you mostly interested? Finally, the materials are assembled around a central theoretical thesis, or a recurrent question, which thematically and methodologically permeates the study, both as an underlying question and as an arrow pointing towards the conclusion from the outset. Not only economists took part; philosophers, ethnologists, historians, sociologists, psychologists, reporters, and artists participated as well. As an academic discipline, Kulturwissenschaft does not only refer to a tradition and a scientific identity, but also to the consecutive education on a Bachelor and Master level up to a PhD and Habilitation.

And: metaphors of death, rites and myths in the context of historical anthropology, ethical, aesthetic and cultural models of Western history. In any case, I believe that the debates on the correct name stem from a shift: the critical question of the singular or plural does not concern the sciences, but a concept of culture which is all-too-often being essentialized like it was formerly done with God or Being. The symbolic order of the map was based not just on wind directions but also on the figure of Christ: the head next to Paradise , his right and left hands, as well as the two feet — and the City of Jerusalem as the navel.

Since then the study of everyday life became a principal thread and it forms an important precondition for the study of the world of things Dingwelten , which today finds its strongest representative in Bruno Latour. There are many cultures, irrespective of whether we view them from a relativist perspective or from a critical universalism. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar.

We must also think about why some children come into this world with a rich bank account, while others are born into poverty and destitution, often with debts that take a lifetime to redeem. In this first phase, then, the scientist of culture works with philological, historical and anthropological methods: archival and - whenever possible - field research. This theoretical and methodological framing is the most authentically philosophical thing that Maco in particular, and the scientist of culture in general, does, or should do. Central to a cultural inquiry into suicide are two questions: 1.

Why is it -from the perspective of a Kulturwissenschaftler - important to study death? Thomas Macho tells the multifaceted history of suicide in modernity and sketches its revaluation across various cultural fields: in politics suicide as protest and assassination , in law the decriminalization of suicide , in medicine euthanasia as well as in philosophy, art, and media.

In many of your publications you deal with the works of Martin Heidegger, Simone Weil, Jacob Taubes, Ludwig Wittgenstein, or Jean-Paul Sartre. Today, such a work may be classified as a guidebook.

Continuing this line I would like to ask you if, in your opinion, there is a specific difference between the German and Anglo-American variety when it comes to research topics? About this Item: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, München, 1996. About this Item: Hanover: Schroedel, 1986. In regard to the question of naming the discipline in singular or plural: in the German speaking parts of the world institutes for Kulturwissenschaft in singular, such as those in Berlin, Bremen, Marburg or Tübingen, can be opposed to the research centers, departments or faculties that prefer the plural. To understand it, we need to dig into the history, as well as the etymology, of the German term Kultur , and we will ask Macho himself to do just that during the interview. Since a few years Kulturwissenschaft witnesses the emergence of a very important research object: i.
