Historiae Alexandri Magni: Geschichte Alexanders des Großen (Reclams Rote Reihe)

Lebendig und geradezu romanhaft schildert Curtius Rufus den Feldzug Alexanders des Großen. Besonders eindringlich verfolgt er dessen Entwicklung vom kameradschaftlichen Heerführer hin zum orientalischen Despoten. Anekdoten zu fremdländischen Sitten und Beobachtungen zu Besonderheiten aus Natur und Geographie finden sich in dem Werk genauso wie dramatische Schilderungen, wenn etwa Alexanders Soldaten durch die Wüste marschieren, bis sie halb verdurstet den Fluss Oxus erreichen, oder wenn sie gegen die Kriegselefanten des indischen Königs Poros ankämpfen: All dies macht die »Historiae Alexandri Magni« zu einer abwechslungsreichen Lektüre und damit besonders geeignet für den Einsatz im Unterricht.

Example text

One is the lack of a theory that would inform the analysis of adult-child interactions as pedagogic events so as to delineate more clearly the role that the adult plays as teacher. A second problem is the lack of a linguistic theory that construes language as essentially dialogic without either losing sight of its cognitive function or dichotomizing knowledge and use. And a final problem is the lack of a social, as opposed to an interpersonal, perspective, which would allow mother-child interactions to be theorized as realizing patterns of meaning with significance beyond the individual dyad.

These in fact amount to the same thing viewed from different angles, since in systemic theory the use of the semiotic and its form are not two distinct phenomena. With regard to the way the protolanguage system can be used, two related limitations are crucially important: its inability to categorize the phenomenal world and its inability to create dialogic roles where each speech (inter)act is responsive to the previous one, as in a sequence such as question, answer, acknowledgement. 4 might eventually be extended to include an option for a meaning interpretable as 'I want my dog', a meaning which would find expression in a unique vocalization (or gesture) which distinguished it from other signs.

However, while these approaches do foreground the fact that language is used to act in the world, they may be hampered by building on a model which sees language in terms of the individual's knowledge. As discussed earlier, in those models of language which have developed from a Chomskyan generative model, the linguistic system itself is conceived of as a set of rules which define structural descriptions of sentences. These may be rules of syntax, defining sentences in terms of combinations of classes of units, such as NP, VP; or more semantically oriented rules, defining allowable configurations of such structural functions as agent, instrument, affected, etc.
