Mais da metade da população no mundo vive em povoados e cidades. Estes lugares correspondem àqueles que têm sido imediata e diretamente influenciados pela globalização. Nesse cenário, muitas empresas multinacionais estão alterando seus portfólios de marcas em favor de marcas globais; essa situação faz com que surja o conceito de cultura de consumo global - conjunto de símbolos relacionados ao consumo e comportamentos que são comumente entendidos, mas não, necessariamente, compartilhados pelos consumidores e negócios ao redor do mundo. Isso dependeria da suscetibilidade para a cultura de consumo global (SCCG), uma característica ou traço latente dos consumidores que varia através dos indivíduos e é refletido no desejo dos consumidores ou tendências para a aquisição e uso de marcas globais. Esse traço, pela literatura revisada, compreenderia a conformidade com a tendência de consumo global, percepção de qualidade, prestígio social, responsabilidade social, credibilidade de marca, risco percebido e custo de informação armazenada. É nesse contexto, portanto, que se insere a presente tese, ao caracterizar e verificar o impacto dos traços latentes da suscetibilidade para a cultura de consumo global (SCCG) de consumidores em distintas culturas (países) na aquisição de marcas globais. A pesquisa empírica consistiu de um survey com uso de questionário pela Internet...

The writing of history was also studied by the ancient authors. The relationship between history and literature, discussed in many contemporary researches, can be analyzed from different angles when you add the reflections of classical authors, Greek and Roman, who produced works in which we perceive the concern for the art of good writing. Persuasion, beauty, and verisimilitude were characteristics that defined the writing of prose and poetry in Classical Antiquity and remain important in the current discussion about the historical knowledge, as we seek to show in this article.

The so-called Crusader States established by European settlers in the Levant at the end of the eleventh century gave rise to a variety of Latin literary works, including historiography, sermons, pilgrim guides, monastic literature, and poetry. The first part of this study (Chapter 1) critically reevaluates the Latin literary texts and combines the evidence, including unpublished materials, to chart the development of genres over the course of the twelfth century. The second half of the study (Chapters 2–4) subjects this evidence to a cultural-rhetorical analysis, and asks how Latin literary works, as products by and for a cultural elite, appropriated preexisting materials and developed strategies of their own to construct a Frankish cultural identity of the Levant. Proceeding on three thematically different, but closely interrelated, lines of inquiry, it is argued that authors in the Latin East made cultural claims by drawing on the classical tradition, on the Bible, and on ideas of a Carolingian golden age. Chapter 2 demonstrates that Latin historians drew upon classical traditions to fit the Latin East within established frameworks of history and geography, in which the figures Vespasian and Titus are particularly prevalent. Chapter 3 traces the development of the conception of the Franks in the East as a “People of God” and the use of biblical texts to support this claim...

Bernard of Morlaix was a Cluniac monk who flourished around 1140. What little is known about him, including his visit to Rome, is examined in relation to the affairs of the Cluniac family in his day. A new conjecture is advanced that he was prior of Saint-Denis de Nogent-le-Rotrou. His poems are discussed as examples of the genre of complaint literature. His treatment of the end of the world, and of death, judgement, heaven and hell, is discussed in relation to twelfth-century monasticism. His castigation of the sins of his time includes some of the earliest estates satire. His anticlericalism and his misogyny are compared with those of his contemporaries, and discussed in the context of twelfth-century monastic culture. Bernard’s classical learning is analysed and compared with that of his contemporaries, especially John of Salisbury and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. His use of metre and rhyme is examined in the context of the development of metre based on stress rather than quantity and of systematic and sustained rhyme in the Latin verse of the twelfth century. Bernard’s use of interpretive and compositional allegory is explored. Bernard is seen as a man of his time, exemplifying a number of twelfth-century characteristics, religious...

This two volume Supplement to the Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies represents the proceedings of a conference held at the Institute on 27-29 June, 2002, in honour of Richard Sorabji. These volumes, which are intended to build on the massive achievement of Professor Sorabji’s Ancient Commentators on Aristotle series, focus on the commentary as a vehicle of philosophical and scientific thought. Volume One deals with the Greek tradition, including one paper on Byzantine philosophy and one on the Latin author Calcidius, who is very close to the late Greek tradition in outlook. The volume begins with an overview of the tradition of commenting on Aristotle, and of the study of this tradition in the modern era. It concludes with an up-to-date bibliography of scholarship devoted to the commentators. Volume Two deals with commentaries in Arabic, including a paper on the reception of Arabic interpretations of Aristotle’s De anima in Latin during the Renaissance.; http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/33015762; edited by Peter Adamson, Han Baltussen and M.W.F.

Esta dissertação entrelaça sentidos sobre Educação, Literatura e Discurso, ao colocar a leitura e a escrita em foco. O trabalho questiona a ilusão de leitura única e padronizada imposta no espaço escolar, compreendido por atravessamentos ideológicos que edificam mecanismos de naturalização dos efeitos de sentidos para a posição sujeito-aluno. Nesse sentido, debate o papel da Escola em relação ao grau de letramento, à distribuição de sentidos, ao acesso à Literatura e à garantia do direito de o sujeito-aluno poder sustentar-se em outras posições discursivas, como a da função-leitor e a da função-autor, posições as quais ele é desautorizado e interditado de ocupar. Defendendo a ideia de possibilidade de leituras que façam circular sentidos plurais, esta pesquisa mobiliza, pela filiação à Análise do Discurso pecheuxtiana, os conceitos de interdiscurso, arquivo e memória discursiva para a construção do conceito de teias discursivas, um funcionamento de leitura na função-leitor, que se dá por diálogos, previstos ou não, com obras da literatura clássica universal. Defende-se que a possibilidade de instauração de movimentos interpretativos aos sujeitos-alunos pode afetar o movimento autoral em escritos escolares. Como os movimentos interpretativos não são permitidos na Escola...

The story of Philomela and Procne has long been a figure of violence in literature. However, male mythologizers write Philomela out of existence, whereas women writers use the myth as a metaphor for female oppression and silencing. This paper examines the mutually exclusive strategies of Philomela's male and female mythographers. Chapters one through three explore how classical and medieval poets rewrote the myth to sublimate their fear which the story's themes represent. Rendered speechless, hence powerless within a masculine construct, Philomela creates a new idiom and reconstitutes her identity in weaving. Recognizing the immanent consequence of this feminine poetic, male mythologizers, epitomized by Coleridge in the nineteenth century, seek to silence Philomela once and for all. Nevertheless, the Philomela/Procne myth resonates throughout the texts of women. Chapter four analyzes Trifles and "A Jury of Her Peers", by Susan Glaspell, revealing the life of a frontier woman domineered by an unyielding husband she finally kills. The male investigators overlook evidence they deem "trifles" because it lies in woman's work. The neighbor women, on the other hand, deduce the truth of Minnie's existence, and unite to subvert the law and establish a new form of justice based on the caring and connectedness of women...

J.R.R. Tolkien was not only an author of fantasy but also a philologist who theorized about myth. Theorists have employed various methods of analyzing myth, and this thesis integrates several analyses, including Tolkien’s. I address the roles of doctrine, ritual, cross-cultural patterns, mythic expressions in literature, the literary effect of myth, evolution of language and consciousness, and individual invention over inheritance and diffusion. Beyond Tolkien’s English and Catholic background, I argue for eclectic influence on Tolkien, including resonance with Buddhism. Tolkien views mythopoeia, literary mythmaking, in terms of sub-creation, human invention in the image of God as creator. Key mythopoetic tools include eucatastrophe, the happy ending’s sudden turn to poignant joy, and enchantment, the realization of imagined wonder, which is epitomized by the character of Tom Bombadil and contrasted with modernist techno-magic seeking to alter and dominate the world. I conclude by interpreting Tolkien’s mythmaking as a form of mysticism.

A epopeia, gênero muito visitado na Literatura clássica, perdeu cada vez mais espaço, principalmente com o advento da sociedade burguesa. Este estudo tem por objetivo o levantar de dados a respeito do poema narrativo moderno na poética de João Cabral de Melo Neto, traçando antes, uma rápida evolução do poema narrativo ao longo dos séculos, chegando até o Modernismo Brasileiro. Após esta primeira etapa, fizemos um recorte na obra Crime na Calle Relator, de João Cabral de Melo Neto, produzida entre 1985 e 1987, e publicada em 1987, uma experiência do autor com o poema narrativo. Após evidenciar a concepção poética de João Cabral de Melo Neto na visão de alguns críticos, auscultamos os núcleos temáticos de sua poética, principalmente na obra de 1987, elevando-a a um caráter de obra síntese do poeta pernambucano, marcada pelo viés memorialístico, revisitando uma constelação obsessiva de temas, pessoas e espaços. Analisamos, também, os preceitos do poema narrativo moderno, inoculados no corpus de Crime na Calle Relator, numa tentativa de desvelar as marcas de tensão de uma literatura de tradição clássica e de tradição popular no construto do texto. Tal abordagem foi feita na perspectiva de aproximação e distanciamento das referências à vida de diplomata do autor...

O presente estudo realiza uma leitura psicanalítica do brinquedo na literatura para crianças. Aborda-se o conceito e a história da infância, da literatura para crianças e do brinquedo, como as transformações ocorridas com esses conceitos na atualidade. Estabelece-se uma comparação entre o brinquedo e o livro, considerados produtos culturais. São discutidos o brinquedo e sua dupla expressão, como um objeto inventado pelo adulto e reinventado pela criança. Utilizando a Psicanálise como instrumento de interpretação, a pesquisa faz uma análise de duas histórias clássicas da literatura, do século XIX: O soldadinho de chumbo, do dinamarquês Hans Christian Andersen e Conto de escola, do brasileiro Machado de Assis. Mostra diferentes representações do brinquedo na literatura contemporânea para crianças, do final do século XX e início do século XXI, em treze obras literárias estudadas. As obras trabalhadas compreendem edições nacionais e traduzidas, em diferentes gêneros e categorias: prosa e poesia, narrativas com texto e sem texto verbal. O brinquedo, entendido como o objeto cultural que propicia o encontro entre o universo adulto e o infantil, está representado de diversas maneiras, como uma transgressão...

Nesta tese, desenvolvemos a partir de categorias literárias o aspecto polêmico da obra Apologia contra Rufino, de São Jerônimo, padre latino do século IV da era cristã, importante autor da Antiguidade Tardia e da Literatura Latina Cristã. Descrevemos a variedade dos aspectos de gênero de que se serviu São Jerônimo para construir seu texto da Apologia contra Rufino, como o gênero apologético, a diatribe cínico-estóica, os gêneros aristotélicos da Retórica, a sátira e a epístola. Visto que a obra é palco de debates, refutações e invectivas, o texto foi submetido a análises intertextuais, resultando em interessante diálogo entre Jerônimo e seu ex-amigo Rufino, bem como, igualmente interessante, retrato cultural do contexto de época em que o texto foi gerado. O trabalho contém análise estilística com reflexões sobre a língua latina cristã, as figuras de linguagem, os recursos expressivos da língua de Jerônimo, os motivos clássicos, os motivos bíblicos, o bestiário, de modo a reconstituir o processo formal e expressivo do texto da Apologia. Nosso trabalho recupera, pois, em aspectos formais, boa parte do conteúdo e da construção da polêmica da Apologia contra Rufino. ; In this thesis, we develop with literary categories the polemical aspect of Saint Jerome’s Apology against Rufinus...

We prove an upper bound for the evaluation of all classical SU(2) spin networks conjectured by Garoufalidis and van der Veen. This implies one half of the analogue of the volume conjecture which they proposed for classical spin networks. We are also able to obtain the other half, namely, an exact determination of the spectral radius, for the special class of generalized drum graphs. Our proof uses a version of Feynman diagram calculus which we developed as a tool for the interpretation of the symbolic method of classical invariant theory, in a manner which is rigorous yet true to the spirit of the classical literature.; Comment: More than 200 diagrams, pdf is better for download.

We review the literature on what classical physics has to say about the Meissner effect and the London equations. We first discuss the relevance of the Bohr-van Leeuwen theorem for the perfect diamagnetism of superconductors. The conclusion is that the theorem is based on assumptions that are not valid. We also point out results in the literature which prove that the magnetic flux expulsion from a sample cooled to superconductivity can be simply understood as an approach to the magnetostatic energy minimum. These results have been published several times but still many textbooks on magnetism claim that there is no classical diamagnetism, and virtually all books on superconductivity repeat Meissner's 1933 statement that flux expulsion has no classical explanation.; Comment: 8 pages, Accepted for publication in Am.

According to several classical results by Bezout, Sylvester, Cayley, and others, the classical discriminant D_n of degree n polynomials may be expressed as the determinant of a matrix whose entries are much simpler polynomials in the coefficients of f. However, all of the determinantal formulae for D_n appearing in the classical literature are equivalent in the sense that the cokernels of their associated matrices are isomorphic as modules over the associated polynomial ring. This begs the question of whether there exist formulae which are not equivalent to the classical formulae and not trivial in the sense of having the same cokernel as the 1 x 1 matrix (D_n). In this paper, we construct an explicit non-classical formula: the presentation matrix of the open swallowtail first studied by Arnol'd and Givental. We study the properties of this formula, contrasting them with the properties of the classical formulae.; Comment: 22 pages, 2 figures

A notorious difficulty in the covariant dynamics of classical charged particles subject to non-local electromagnetic (EM) interactions arising in the EM radiation-reaction (RR) phenomena is due to the definition of the related non-local Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems. The lack of a standard Lagrangian/Hamiltonian formulation in the customary asymptotic approximation for the RR equation may inhibit the construction of consistent kinetic and fluid theories. In this paper the issue is investigated in the framework of Special Relativity. It is shown that, for finite-size spherically-symmetric classical charged particles, non-perturbative Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations in standard form can be obtained, which describe particle dynamics in the presence of the exact EM RR self-force. As a remarkable consequence, based on axiomatic formulation of classical statistical mechanics, the covariant kinetic theory for systems of charged particles subject to the EM RR self-force is formulated in Hamiltonian form. A fundamental feature is that the non-local effects enter the kinetic equation only through the retarded particle 4-position, which permits the construction of the related non-local fluid equations. In particular, the moment equations obtained in this way do not contain higher-order moments...

This dissertation identifies Cicero's Consolatio, Seneca's Ad Polybium de consolatione, and Boethius' De consolatione Philosophiae as self-consolations, in which these Roman authors employ philosophical argument and literary art, in order to provide a therapy for their own crippling experience of grief. This therapeutic discourse unfolds between two contradictory conditions, though, since the philosophers must possess the self-mastery and self-possession that qualifies the consoler to perform his task felicitously, and they must lack those very same qualifications, insofar as their experience of loss has exposed their dependence upon others and they thus require consolation. Foucault's theoretical treatment of ancient philosophical discourse is supplemented by Lacanian critical theory and the political theology of Giorgio Agamben to perform analyses of the consolatory texts and their political context. These analyses reveal that self-consolation overcomes the contradictory conditions that found this discourse through literary and rhetorical artifice. But this resolution then places the apparent completeness of the philosophical argument in doubt, as the consoled authors in each case finally call for a decisive action that would join philosophical reflection to the merely human world that philosophy would have these consolers leave behind. Each author's self-consolation therefore demonstrates a split allegiance to the Roman political community and to a Socratic philosophical heritage that advocates for withdrawal from politics.

This essay deals with the metaphor of the dog in Arabic philosophical literature. The metaphor is viewed in relation to the imagery of the rider and the horse, which vividly demonstrates the dynamic relation of the three faculties of the soul. Our focus is on the irascible faculty, the emotion of anger. The dog metaphor brings out the positive dimension of emotion. Classical Arabic literature views the soul as a substance distinct from the body, and has many illustrations showing the superiority of the soul over the body. What makes the soul special is its rational faculty, its capacity to reason. In the rider-horse imagery, the rider is the metaphor for reason, the horse the metaphor for passion, and the dog the metaphor for anger. A balanced soul coordinates these faculties in right proportion. The imagery of horse-riding, used in Arabic and Greek philosophical literature, provides the most powerful image to explain how the three faculties of the soul interact with one another. The article examines the imagery from a literary and philosophical perspective. Scientific knowledge of the horse and dog will enhance our insight and appreciation of the richness of the metaphor. The method of analysis is based on four primary classical texts: Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics in Miskawayh's eleven century Arabic translation...

The contemporary Afrikaans poet Charl-Pierre Naudé is one of the most promising voices in South African poetry today. Following two award-winning Afrikaans collections, Naudé s debut collection in English, Against the Light (2007), demonstrates learned intertexual references to classical literature, particularly the Roman poets Horace and Catullus. These Latin poets become competing models for Naudé's own poetics, either passionate and personal, or political and pastoral. In post-apartheid South Africa, after a period of dramatic social change, ultimately Catullus offers himself as the more compelling poetic model for this South African writer.
