Der Roman Homo Faber: Ein Bericht, der in 1957 erstmals publiziert wurde, ist von dem Schweizer Schriftsteller Marx Frisch geschrieben worden. Der Roman gibt die Reise des Protagonisten Walter Fabers wieder, die in New York anfängt und ihn unter anderem von der Wüste Tamaulipas, nach Rom, Paris und letztlich Athen führt. Auf seinem Weg wird er von seiner Vergangenheit eingeholt und wird mit verschiedenen Lebenssituationen konfrontiert wie Liebe, Krankheit, Verlust wie aber auch mit Erkenntnis. In den nachfolgenden Paragraphen werde ich versuchen auf die Passage auf Seite 150- 152 des Romans genauer einzugehen.

In der uns gegebenen Textpassage handelt es sich um ein Rückblick von Walter Faber und Sabeth die in Korinth angekommen sind und den Tag damit verbrachten die Gegend zu erkunden bis sie sich Mitten in der Nacht auf einem Berg stehen sahen und sich entschlossen in der Freien Natur zu übernachten. In dieser Zeit sind sich Sabeth und Faber näher gekommen.

Die Sprache/Ton des Ich- Erzählers Walter Faber ist sehr Sachlich und in der sprachlichen Gestaltung schon zu beginn klar vorgegeben, da der Untertitel "Ein Bericht" dem Leser schon erahnen läst das es sich um eine Erzählung einer art handeln wird. Wie von einem Bericht erwartet wird benutz Frisch durch ganzen Roman hindurch, wie auch in der uns gegebenen Textstelle, eine Nüchternen Sprache die nicht viel Raum für große Ausschmückungen übrig hat. Auch benutz er präzise Zeit- und Ortsangaben. „Vor vierundzwanzig Stunden“, „ Wir sind von Partas gekommen und in Korinth Ausgestiegen.“ (Seite 150) Aber auch kurze, auf den Punkt gebrauchte vergleiche kommen in seinem Bericht nicht zu kurz. „ Dazu die Schwarzen Felsen über uns: Wie Kohle!“, (Seite 150) „Unsere Mondschatten: Wie Scherenschnitte!“, „In der Ferne das Meer: Wie Zinkblech!“. Einzig im Letzen Abschnitt auf der Seite 152 wo es folgendes…...

Darüber hinaus veröffentlichte er Hörspiele, Erzählungen und Prosawerke sowie zwei, die Zeiträume von 1946 bis 1949 und 1966 bis 1971 umfassende, literarische Tagebücher. Der junge Max Frisch empfand bürgerliche und künstlerische Existenz als unvereinbar und war lange Zeit unsicher, welchen Lebensentwurf er wählen sollte. Infolgedessen absolvierte Frisch nach einem abgebrochenen Germanistik-Studium und ersten literarischen Arbeiten ein Studium der Architektur und arbeitete einige Jahre lang als Architekt. Erst nach dem Erfolg seines Romans Stiller entschied er sich endgültig für ein Dasein als Schriftsteller und verließ seine Familie, um sich ganz dem Schreiben widmen zu können Frischs erster Beitrag in der Neuen Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) stammt aus dem Mai 1931.

Life of Homo Erectus

...East Africa. It has to be at least 2.3 million years in the past. Its definatly a lot colder than in the future. The air feels really dry as if there was no moisture. Looking around I see the savanna luscious with vegetation. I spot a man or what looks like a man walking towards a group of trees holding what appears to be some sort of hammer or club. I slowly approach him and start to follow him and I discover a small village of sorts. This must be where the Homo erectus lives. The adults are roughly five to six feet tall but they have narrow hips. However they’re legs were denser. They’re heads have a less spherical and more elongated shape and suggest lower mental capacity. Their weight ranges from 88 to 150 pounds. I have noticed that they also have sweat glands meaning that they are able to cool themselves down in hot weather. They were hunter-gatherers or foragers. They lived in groups and worked together to survive. The males would typically go hunt while the females would gather vegetation like fruits and nuts and would process the meats that were gathered earlier. The females would also take great care in their week and young members. This would ensure optimal survival for their species... They would live in crudely made huts out of large tree branches. Each of the branches would be stuck into the ground and surrounded by rocks to prevent them from moving. Each of these huts were roughly tent shaped... I follow a couple of the males that are going......

Faber Castell

...Origin and history Geroldsgrün, Faber-Castell works Faber-Castell works in Stein, Nuremberg Founded in 1761 at Stein near Nuremberg by cabinet-maker Kaspar Faber (1730–1784), the enterprise remained in the Faber family for eight generations.[6] It opened branches in New York (1849), London (1851), Paris (1855), and expanded to Vienna (1872) and St. Petersburg (1874).[6] It opened a factory in Geroldsgrün where slide rules were produced. It expanded internationally and launched new products under Kaspar Faber's ambitious great-grandson, Lothar (1817–1896).[6] In 1900, after the marriage of Lothar's granddaughter with a cadet of the Counts of Castell, the A.W. Castell enterprise took the name of Faber-Castell and a new logo, combining the Faber motto, Since 1761, with the "jousting knights" of the Castells' coat-of-arms.[7] The Castell family were mediatised counts of the old Holy Roman Empire, and as such ranked with the reigning dynasties of Europe.[8] In 1901 the head of the family was granted the hereditary title of Prince by Luitpold, Prince Regent of Bavaria.[8] A descendant of the first prince, Count Alexander Friedrich Lothar von Castell-Rüdenhausen (1866–1928) married Baroness Ottilie von Faber (1877–1944), heiress of the Faber pencil "dynasty" in 1898.[8] Although the immensely wealthy Lothar had been ennobled in 1861 and made Baron von Faber in the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1881,[6] in the German Empire his daughter's marriage to a mediatised nobleman would have......

...must move the instrument in the opposite direction from the desired target on the monitor to interact with the site of interest.” (Surg) Surg explains that with this, hand-eye coordination is then compromised with this limitation. The desire to overcome these limitations is what drives the motivation to develop surgical robotics, to expand the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. In most countries many of the current and projected technological advancements in surgical care often come with deep rooted legal or virtuous implications. Some of these repercussions may be perceived as advantageous, while the effects of others may be more open to debate. In Germany the legal implications are none because of the Social Medicine Platform, Germans cannot sue their health care system. Other countries, such as Canada view this technology as any other surgical procedure, thereby the “legal basis for professional liability remains exactly the same, and litigation with the use of robotic surgery may be complex” (ANGIOL 2010). In cases involving a liability, not only are the physicians and hospitals liable but also the manufacturer of the robotic technology. Ethical issues surrounding robotic surgery would include maintenance, safety of equipment and confidentiality. With the quick introduction of ground-breaking technologies in the surgical circle, such as computer-enhanced robotic assisted surgery, the challenging complications in various aspects, including medical, legal......

German Essay

...about how they are feeling since arriving but then realize that the ticket guy is not really interested in a long answer, he is just waiting to sell them tickets. This is interesting because we have been taught that in Germany “How are you?” is a question that is really asking for a genuine answer, good or bad, and in the US the expected answer is a short “good” or “good, how are you?” in most casual situations. In the US, “how are you” is a polite phrase to say to strangers that adds some warmth to a greeting without prying for detail that might make anyone uncomfortable. Americans are supposedly more open to conversation and making conversation with strangers than they may be in Germany. Therefore, it is interesting that the East Germans in the movie are comfortable to share so much information so readily with a stranger in New York. I now wonder if people in Germany only ask, “How are you?” to close friends and not really to casual acquaintances in order to avoid sharing or hearing too much information? Although this American cultural difference is proven to be true in many casual situations, I find this situation especially true in a city like New York and less true in smaller towns like Houghton. For example, I’m always surprised when I meet someone who is from Europe that has only visited the US once and did not enjoy the experience based on the ‘cold feeling’ they get from the people in New York. While it is never pleasant to feel this, New York is a large......

BY PAU L SC H RA D E R Top guns (and dogs): the #1 The Rules of the Game September-October 2006 FILM COMMENT 33 Sunrise PREFACE THE BOOK I DIDN’T WRITE I n march 2003 i was having dinner in london with Faber and Faber’s editor of film books, Walter Donohue, and several others when the conversation turned to the current state of film criticism and lack of knowledge of film history in general. I remarked on a former assistant who, when told to look up Montgomery Clift, returned some minutes later asking, “Where is that?” I replied that I thought it was in the Hollywood Hills, and he returned to his search engine. Yes, we agreed, there are too many films, too much history, for today’s student to master. “Someone should write a film version of Harold Bloom’s The Western Canon,” a writer from The Independent suggested, and “the person who should write it,” he said, looking at me, “is you.” I looked to Walter, who replied, “If you write it, I’ll publish it.” And the die was cast. Faber offered a contract, and I set to work. Following the Bloom model I decided it should be an elitist canon, not populist, raising the bar so high that only a handful of films would pass over. I proceeded to compile a list of essential films, attempting, as best I could, to separate personal favorites from those movies that artistically defined film......

Sustainability Report of Faber Castell

... in the history of mankind? Who can say how much has not been written, drawn, sketched, designed, painted simply because there was no pen to hand? Editorial Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, Chairman and CEO of Faber-Castell AG The values of any well-managed family business must include sustainability, social and environmental responsibility, and human virtues such as tolerance, humbleness and honesty. My great-great-grandfather, Lothar von Faber, was a businessman of great social dedication, and his descendants have followed his example as a matter of duty. The Social Charter signed in 2000 prohibits discrimination and child labour and protects our employees against exploitation. The agreements of the International Labour Organization (ILO), to which the Charter commits us, are for me no more than natural standards for anyone engaged in business. In order to achieve long-term success, you have to think in terms of the future. For me as a businessman it is extremely important not to make profit at the cost of future generations. Amongst other things, I am creating sustainable sources of wood, our most valuable raw material, which do not have a negative impact on either people or the environment. It was for the same reason that, some 30 years ago, Faber-Castell set up a forestry project in Brazil which was certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) as being „environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically sustainable“. ...

Extincition of Homo Neaderthalis

...Extinction of Homo Neanderthalis: How and Why Did it Happen? One of the debates that has raged among anthropologists for over a century is the issue of Homo neanderthalis – what are the circumstances of the extinction of this species? Over time a variety of hypotheses have been posited; some have been disproven, others remain on the table of debate. Many factors contribute to the unresolved nature of the problem, ranging from limited information, contradictory evidence, and an increasingly curious mystery regarding the gradual decline of the population while temporally coexistent with Homo sapiens. An interesting observation can be made about the peculiar way in which biological anthropologists have considered the development of their own species. The old maxim that it is nearly impossible to turn an objective eye towards one’s self is especially valid, even in this context. Historically, anthropologists have seen the development of Homo sapiens as something gradual and transformative. The presence of Homo neaderthalis throws a wrench into the quaint linearity of this way of thinking. The paleoanthropological record of the Neanderthals continues up to a certain point and their presumed extinction has always been troublesome and anthropologists continue to debate as to why they became extinct. There are several ideas competing for prominence, four of which being the major considerations. The first states that they entered into resource competition with Homo sapiens and......

German Expressionism

...ART WORLD Art House: An Introduction to German Expressionist Films Alissa Darsa, Thursday, December 26, 2013 Robert Wiene, Stills for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (three works) (1919). Gelatin silver print, sold at Christie's New York. Welcome to the first article in Art House, a series detailing the evolution of art house films, and their impact on the relationship between art and cinema. The term art house refers to films that are artistic or experimental in nature, and are generally not part of the commercial mainstream. It is interesting to note that unlike many other forms of avant-garde, filmic avant-garde does not typically generate the profits earned by its musical, visual, and literary counterparts. Most artists who have produced avant-garde films have had to rely on other artistic media as a source of income, including Andy Warhol (American, 1928–1987).1 However, there are several films that have crossed over into the realm of mainstream cinema, and have been both financially successful as well as stylistically influential. This article focuses on German Expressionism, one of the earliest artistic genres to influence filmmaking, and one that arguably paved the way for many other avant-garde styles and techniques. Walter Reimann & Hermann Warm, Le docteur à la foire (from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1919). Sold at Binoche Renaud-Giquello & Associés. German Expressionism is an artistic genre that originated in Europe in the 1920s, and is broadly......

Homo Erectus Throught Paper

...Homo Erectus Through Paper The study of our evolution is very much an open book, which seems to me is having its chapters being written out of order and has no ending. Because we are trying to trace history that there is no history of, it is like we are trying to solve a mystery and the whole world is our crime scene, and oh yeah it's dozens of feet under ground! There seems to be theory after theory and many skeptics, but I believe it to be much simpler than it all seems. The first trace of humanity all comes back to Africa and that is where it all began, as the environment evolved so did we, into different species dependent on natural selection, ultimately ending with us, well for now. If you had what it took you would prevail, if not you died out. Once the woodlands begin to die we traveled to survive. Sure some probably stayed for others emigrated out of Africa to find better food sources. It is true with any animal that you follow the food. The findings at Dmanisi seemed to shake up what we thought was true at one point. Inside of layers of basalt and ash, a team of archaeologists found thousands of stone tools animal fossils and four skulls, two of which were considered "The Old Man and the teenager" (family ties). What was interesting about the findings was, one they seemed to be a hybrid between a Homo habilis and Homo erectus, and two their age! The layers of basalt and ash surrounding the fossils was 1.75 million years old. That's half a million......
