During the Renaissance, collections of letters both satisfied humanist enthusiasm for ancient literary forms and provided the flexibility of a format appropriate to many types of inquiry. The printed collections of medical letters by Giovanni Manardo of Ferrara and other physicians in early sixteenth-century Europe may thus be regarded as products of medical humanism. The letters of mid- and late sixteenth-century Italian and German physicians examined in Communities of Learned Experience by Nancy G. Siraisi also illustrate practices associated with the concepts of the Republic of Letters: open and relatively informal communication among a learned community and a liberal exchange of information and ideas. Additionally, such published medical correspondence may often have served to provide mutual reinforcement of professional reputation. Siraisi uses some of these collections to compare approaches to sharing medical knowledge across broad regions of Europe and within a city, with the goal of illuminating geographic differences as well as diversity within social, urban, courtly, and academic environments. The collections she has selected include essays on general medical topics addressed to colleagues or disciples, some advice for individual patients (usually written at the request of the patient’s doctor), and a strong dose of controversy. -- Cynthia Klestinec, Miami University– Ohio

Ist die Annahme eines unilateralen kulturellen Transfers von Süd- nach Nordeuropa in der Frühen Neuzeit noch zu halten? Die Beiträge des interdisziplinären Bandes widersprechen diesem traditionellen Standpunkt und untersuchen die Dynamiken der Wissensproduktion und -zirkulation zwischen der italienischen Halbinsel und dem deutschsprachigen Raum im Verlauf des langen 17. Jahrhunderts. Sie hinterfragen etablierte Axiome und Paradigmen zur deutsch-italienischen Beziehungsgeschichte und zeigen: Die transalpinen Netzwerke in und zwischen den unterschiedlichsten gesellschaftlichen Bereichen - Diplomatie, bildende Künste, Musik und Wissenschaft - waren äußerst komplex.

In their latest book, Edmund O'Sullivan and Marilyn Taylor highlight the pedagogical practices that foster transformation from our current way of thinking about our place in the world to an underlying ecological way of seeing and acting. Learning Towards Ecological Consciousness offers the reader a selection of transformative practices that demonstrate, in specific contexts, the complex journey and contextual conditions that move us forward towards a deeper realization that we are part of the world around us, holding a greater promise for deeper ecological awareness. To this end, thirteen chapters offer a rich array of practices in diverse life settings--educational environments, communities and workplaces and personal relationships. Contributors and their material represent a range of cultures, work setting and professions. The aspect of O'Sullivan and Taylor's new book that distinguishes it from other books in the field is its exploration of how consciousness can be transformed through practices, experience and action.
