‘Persia’ and the western imagination | OUPblog -
‘Persia’ and the western imagination | OUPblog
"Iran has long had a difficult relationship with the West. Ever since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 overthrew the monarchy and established an Islamic Republic, Iran has been associated in the popular consciousness with militant Islam and radical anti-Westernism. ‘Persia’ by contrast has long been a source of fascination in the Western imagination eliciting both awe and contempt that only familiarity can bring. Indeed if ‘Iran’ seems altogether alien to us, ‘Persia’ seems strangely familiar. There are few cultural icons or aspirations that we would associate with Iran; there are by contrast quite a few we would relate to Persia, most obviously carpets, the occasional cat and for the truly affluent, caviar. That these two words would elicit such dramatically different associations is all the more striking because they are describing the same place. Persia is simply the name inherited from the Greeks and the Romans for the great empire to the East that its inhabitants came to know as... more... - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Yet Persia reminds us that Iran is not as unfamiliar to us as we might imagine. Quite the contrary. The Persians serve an almost unique function in the Western narrative, being present at the birth and some might argue, the creation of a distinctly Western civilisation. If the Greeks under the influence of Herodotus, first defined history as a conflict between ‘East’ and ‘West’,... more... - Maitani
В быту у нас тут очень часто, когда спрашиваешь иранца, откуда он, ответ: I am Persian/from Persia. Остальные говорят I am from Iran, но почти никогда I am an Iranian. Персов тут много, так что выборка приличная, и аффтар прав. - слово с корнем моск

BBC News - Would you be beautiful in the ancient world?
"In ancient Greece the rules of beauty were all important. Things were good for men who were buff and glossy. And for women, fuller-figured redheads were in favour - but they had to contend with an ominous undercurrent, historian Bettany Hughes explains." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"A full-lipped, cheek-chiselled man in Ancient Greece knew two things - that his beauty was a blessing (a gift of the gods no less) and that his perfect exterior hid an inner perfection. For the Greeks a beautiful body was considered direct evidence of a beautiful mind. They even had a word for it - kaloskagathos - which meant being gorgeous to look at, and hence being a good person." - Maitani

What the World Will Speak in 2115 - WSJ - by John H. MCWhorter
"In 1880 a Bavarian priest created a language that he hoped the whole world could use. He mixed words from French, German and English and gave his creation the name Volapük, which didn’t do it any favors. Worse, Volapük was hard to use, sprinkled with odd sounds and case endings like Latin." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"It made a splash for a few years but was soon pushed aside by another invented language, Esperanto, which had a lyrical name and was much easier to master. A game learner could pick up its rules of usage in an afternoon." - Maitani
"But it didn’t matter. By the time Esperanto got out of the gate, another language was already emerging as an international medium: English. Two thousand years ago, English was the unwritten tongue of Iron Age tribes in Denmark. A thousand years after that, it was living in the shadow of French-speaking overlords on a dampish little island. No one then living could have dreamed that... more... - Maitani

"There was a time when intellectual engagement necessarily included long hours reading old-fashioned paper tomes. But in an age when a digital attention economy is ascendant, it’s now possible to satisfy this curiosity without ever consuming more than a couple hundred highly digested and simplified words at a time." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with this new form of lightweight information consumption — the problem is the behaviors it tends to replace." - Maitani
"Reading a hard book, we must remember, is an experience that returns many rewards not generated by a pithy blog post (ahem) or online magazine." - Maitani

3quarksdaily: Typical Dreams: A Comparison of Dreams Across Cultures
"Have you ever wondered how the content of your dreams differs from that of your friends? How about the dreams of people raised in different countries and cultures? It is not always easy to compare dreams of distinct individuals because the content of dreams depends on our personal experiences. This is why dream researchers have developed standardized dream questionnaires in which common thematic elements are grouped together. These questionnaires can be translated into various languages and used to survey and scientifically analyze the content of dreams. Open-ended questions about dreams might elicit free-form, subjective answers which are difficult to categorize and analyze. Therefore, standardized dream questionnaires ask study subjects "Have you ever dreamed of . . ." and provide research subjects with a list of defined dream themes such as being chased, flying or falling." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

"When the Loeb Classical Library was founded in 1911, it was hailed as a much-needed effort to make the glories of the Greek and Roman classics available to general readers." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Now, Harvard University Press, the publisher of the Loebs, wants to do the same for the far more vast and dizzyingly diverse classical literature of India, in what some are calling one of the most complex scholarly publishing projects ever undertaken." - Maitani
"The Murty Classical Library of India, whose first five dual-language volumes will be released next week, will include not only Sanskrit texts but also works in Bangla, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Persian, Prakrit, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu and other languages. Projected to reach some 500 books over the next century, the series is to encompass poetry and prose, history and philosophy, Buddhist... more... - Maitani

This is a spectacular, very important project, which has been long overdue. I am excited! I hope the editors/publishers will be in a position to follow through on it. - Maitani
It would be lovely, though we still have the "Sacred Books of the East", edited by Max Müller, that covers some very important books from India. - Haukr
Sure, but the scope of this series is different and much wider, as to the intention of the editors. The "Sacred Books of the East" series focuses on ancient religious texts, it is undispensable, of course, and precious, but what about secular literature, later works, works written in languages that are not Indo-Aryan? - Maitani
Sacred Books of the East - Maitani
yes, of course, that's why we're all looking forward to this new catalog :) - Haukr
I am not sure about that. In German schools, we learn next to nothing about the political or cultural history of South Asia (and other regions) before colonialism. I don't know who will be interested in these works other than indologists. - Maitani
The situation's not different in Italy, but I have a personal interest in India and such books can be very difficult to find (even more with a translation). I suppose that the translation itself and the ebook format might help to create a greater audience, or to allow more studies and papers on the subject of the said books. - Haukr
Do you have special spheres of interest related to India? - Maitani
mostly myths and religions. - Haukr

Babel's Dawn: Signaling the Intent to Signal
"Before I get distracted by too much nit-picking, let me get to the summary paragraph: Thomas Scott-Phillips' book, Speaking Our Minds, contributes seriously to the study of language origins. First and foremost, it demands that pragmatics—the study of language in its social context—be included in the effort to understand language origins. What's more, it makes good on its case. Pragmatics has been underplayed and anybody who thinks about language origins should read and study the book. If the book were not so danged expensive, I would even urge you to buy a copy. (By the way, I've mentioned Scott-Phillips before—see Reality Blogging—and I remember him as a promising fellow at the Barcelona Evolang conference of 2008.)" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The case for pragmatics rests on its special view of language as an ostensive-inferential communications system. Sorry, I'd like to use some other term, but that is the one used by the author and others, so we might as well hold our noses and roll with the bandwagon. You can understand it by imagining the archetypal scene in which Homo erectus A points toward a charging sabertooth... more... - Maitani

"Regular readers will know that one of our blog traditions is to highlight a calendar from a particular medieval manuscript throughout the course of the year.  Past manuscripts have included the Isabella Breviary, the Hours of Joanna the Mad, the Golf Book, and the Huth Hours.  In 2015 we are pleased to present a manuscript that has featured on our blog before, the London Rothschild Hours.  Confusingly, this manuscript is often also called the Hours of Joanna the Mad (or the Hours of Joanna I of Castile), as it has been suggested that the manuscript belonged to that famous lady." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Evidence that the book was Joanna’s is tantalising, but inconclusive. The repeated presence of Joanna’s name saint, John the Evangelist, is a potential clue, and the presence of a number of Spanish saints in the calendar suggests that it was probably produced for a member of the Spanish aristocracy." - Maitani

война кончается
Unten ist mein Übersetzung eines sehr interessanten Artikel. Die Übersetzung ist nicht abgeschlossen, ich tue es jetzt. (Bitte nicht kommentieren Sie, bevor ich zum Schluss komme, aber Korrekturen meiner Fehler in Deutsch sind willkommen.)
Wie Fußball Half Dem Großbritannien, Den Ersten Weltkrieg Zu Gewinnen - война кончается
Viele Millionen Menschen in Großbritannien heute können sagen, Fußball ist in ihrem Blut. Ob man spielt vor Tausenden in riesigen Stadions, oder in dem Park, dieses einfache Spiel ist der Teil der britischen Lebensart. - война кончается
Vor hundert Jahren, im Jahr 1914, war es genau das gleiche. Tausende spielen wöchentlich, und Hunderttausende sahen. - война кончается
Als der Krieg ausbrach, Fußball ging nicht einfach weg. Der erste Weltkrieg war anders als alles, was vorher gekommen war. Der größte Teil des Landes wurde in den Kämpfen hineingezogen, ob im Hinterland oder an der Kriegsfront. Dieses Text ist die Geschichte darüber, wie Fußball seine Rolle spielte. - война кончается
Im Jahr 1914 wurde kleine britische Berufsarmee war in der Unterzahl und erlitt schwere Verluste. Das Kriegsministerium brauchte Männer. Starke, junge Burschen wurden benötigt, um sich freiwillig zu melden. Fußballer waren genau was die Armee brauchte. - война кончается
In London, es wurde dem Kriegsministerium klar, was für еine mächtige Waffe es hatte. Fußball besaß die Nation. Er war eine wahrhaft national Sportart. Fast jede Industriestadt in Britannien hatte einen Klub, und Tausende kamen wöchentlich, um einen Spiel zu sehen. Im Jahr 1914, zog der Pokalendspiel der Football Association eine Menge von 100.000. Und nicht einmal der Ausbruch des... more... - война кончается
Zusammen mit der Football Association, hatte das Kriegsministerium eine Idee. Es würde professionelle Spieler aufreden, um sich freiwillig zu melden, und bieten den Fans die Möglichkeit, mit ihnen zu kämpfen. Rekrutierung-Plakate wurde entworfen und um Fußballstadions verputzt. Sie sagten: “Der Footballers-Bataillon will Spieler und Club-Enthusiasten. Bist DU fit und frei?” - война кончается
Der Plan funktionierte. Viele Spieler aus vielen Clubs aus allen Teilen des Landes sich freiwillig meldeten. Hunderten den professionelle Fußballer gingen zu die Armee neben zehntausenden Fans. So im Dezember 1914 wurde ein neuer 17. Bataillon des Londoner Middlesex Regiment gebildet, speziell für den professionelle und Amateur-Spieler, und Fans. Sie würden wie der Footballers-Bataillon bekannt sein. - война кончается
Mehr als 2.000 Fußballer hörten den Profi-Sport auf, um zu gehen und zu kämpfen. Aber sie wurden keine Kanonenfutter wie einfache Rekruten. Fußballer wurden von allem als ausgezeichnete Soldaten markiert, tatsächlich wurden viele von ihnen Offiziere bald. Also, warum waren sie so gut? - война кончается
Fußballspieler sind körperlich fit und stark, und ihre Aufgabe ist, im Team zu arbeiten. Sie müssen verstehen, wie man angreifen und verteidigen als eine Einheit. Und wenn der Manager entscheidet, die Taktik in der Mitte des Spiels zu ändern, sie müssen genau wissen, was zu tun ist. Und die Art von Anführer, man auf dem Fußballplatz folgen würde, sind genau die Art von Anführer, man auf dem Kampfplatz folgen würde. - война кончается
Und es war nicht nur ein Bataillon. Tatsächlich, jedes Bataillon auf dem Westfront hatte seine eigene Sportmannschaft, es gibt 12 Bataillons in eine Division, so, es gab 12 Sportmannschaften in eine Division. Die Offiziere wählten wer spielt mit wem, dann ein passender Platz gefunden wurde, und dann ein Fußballspiel gespielt wurde. Und dann gab es ein Endspiel am Ende der Jahreszeit. - война кончается
Fußball war wertvoll für die Armee in Bezug auf Fitness, Teamarbeit, Disziplin und Moral. - война кончается
Fitness: Der Lieblingssport der Nation wurde als ansprechender und zugänglicher Weg, um körperliche Fitness in neue Rekruten zu bilden. - война кончается
Teamarbeit: Fußball förderte die Einheit Solidarität und verstärkte Beziehungen zwischen Genossen, entwickelte Loyalität und Engagement für die Ziele eines Battalions. - война кончается
Disziplin: Lange Zeiträume der Inaktivität waren Teil des alltäglichen soldatischen Lebens. Offiziere verwendete Fußball, um positive Gewöhnheit ihren Männer beizubringen, damit sie seine Freizeit gut zu nützen: Fußball ist besser als Tavernen. - война кончается
Moral: geistige Fitness war ebenso wichtig wie körperliche Kraft. Nach der Einführung der Wehrpflicht und katastrophale Verluste in der Schlacht an der Somme, Spielen wie Fußball helfen konnten, die Bataillon Geister zu heben. - война кончается
Es gab auch Schwierigkeiten, weil wahrscheinlich ein Torwart verwundet oder getötet am letzten Mal an der Front hatte: man musste bereit sein, ständig Männer zu ersetzen. - война кончается
Wenn die Waffen endlich still wurden, und der Spiel wieder gespielt werden konnte, Fußball seine Spuren hinterlassen gehabt hatte, aber es teuer zu stehen kam. Der Footballers-Bataillon hatte mehr als tausend Menschen verloren. Britannien hatte nicht nur viele begabten jungen Spieler verloren, aber auch Hunderttausende von Männer, die ihnen jede Woche zugejubelt hatte. - война кончается
==== DAS WAR ES! ===== - война кончается
Ich würde die Bezeichnung "Führer" verändern. Es gibt sehr bekannte Konnotation. Man kann das z.B. "Kapitän" oder "Chef" nennen. - Тимур
ich brauche eine Übersetzung für "лидер". Gibt es etwas anderes als Führer? - война кончается
Ich könnte "лидер" als "Anführer" übersetzen. Meine Meinung nach passt ''Chef" auch. - Тимур
"Mehr als 2.000 Fußballer hörten den Profi-Sport auf, um zu gehen und zu kämpfen." Ich bin nicht sicher, ob das eine richtige Übersetzung ist. Möglicherweise fehlt eine Richtung hier. Wohin gehen sie, wo kämpfen sie? "um an die Front zu gehen und dort zu kämpfen"? - Тимур
"Mehr als 2.000 Fußballspieler gaben den Profisport auf, um in den Kampf zu ziehen." is a possible rendering. - Maitani

December Darkness Across the Universe - Out There -
December Darkness Across the Universe - Out There
"During the darkest days of December, it makes me feel better to think about all the other, more profound darknesses out there in the universe. A little dose of the old perspective, you know. And boy, there are a lot of them–not just a lot of dark places, but a lot of different forms of darkness out there. In fact, there’s a lot more darkness than most of us realize, for an obvious if easily overlooked reason: Space images are calibrated to highlight faint or even invisible detail, making the universe seem like a much brighter place than it really is." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Consider, for instance, Comet Churyumov–Gerasimenko, the now-famous comet being explored by the Rosetta spacecraft (and home to the intrepid, hibernating Philae lander). In all the images you see online, it looks brightly lit. Even the allegedly “true color” image, which is supposed to show what the Comet C-G would look like to the human eye up close, is a bright green-tinged gray. Here’s the truth: The comet is blacker than coal." - Maitani
