On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of 'Rudolf Macuch's death in 1993 a conference was organized in Berlin devoted to his two main areas of research, i.e. Mandaic and Samaritan studies. The proceedings of this conference, which are about to be published, contain 21 contributions of which 14 are on matters Mandaean. The Mandaeans are the only late antique Gnostic baptist sect who have been able to survive up to today by retreating into remoter areas. But now their very existence in their homelands in Southern Mesopotamia and the adjacent province of Persia is threatened by violent conflict and a general absence of law enforcement. In their papers Kurt Rudolph and Sabih Alsohairy are reporting on the Mandaeans' endeavours to preserve their religion and culture in their homelands as well as in the worldwide diaspora. The Mandaeans have produced a remarkable literature, written in an Aramaic language that is closely related to Syriac and Talmudic. Several contributions are dedicated to said literature, whereas others are dealing with questions concerning the disputed origin of the Mandaeans, the Mandaean script, versifi cation, and incantation bowls. Also, six scholars' conference contributions deal with the literature, religion and music of the Samaritans who live as a small religious community in Israel/Palestine. The volume is rounded off with Maria Macuch's biographical sketch of her father.Anlasslich Rudolf Macuchs 10. Todestages fand 1993 in Berlin eine Tagung statt, die seinen beiden Hauptgebieten, der Mandaistik und der Samaritanistik, gewidmet war. Die Akten umfassen 21 Beitrage, darunter 14 mandaistische. Die Mandaer als einzige gnostische Taufersekte der Antike haben in Ruckzugsgebieten bis heute uberleben konnen. Durch kriegerische Auseinandersetzungen und die allgemeine Rechtsunsicherheit sind sie jetzt in ihrer Heimat im sudlichen Mesopotamien und angrenzenden Persien in ihrer Existenz bedroht. Kurt Rudolph und Sabih Alsohairy handeln uber die Bemuhungen der Mandaer, in ihrer Heimat und der weltweiten Diaspora ihre Religion und Kultur zu erhalten. Die Mandaer haben eine bedeutende Literatur hervorgebracht, die in einer dem Syrischen und Talmudischen verwandten aramaischen Sprache verfasst ist. Dieser Literatur sind einige Beitrage gewidmet (Gunduz, Gunther, Guterbock, Mayer, Rebrik), wie auch der umstrittenen Frage des Ursprungs der Mandaer (Buckley, Lupieri), der mandaischen Schrift (Burtea), der Metrik (Voigt) sowie den Zauberschalen (Hunter). Zur Literatur, Religion und Musik der Samaritaner, die als kleine Religionsgemeinschaft in Israel/Palastina leben, tragen sechs Forscher bei (Kartveit, Nieten, Schorch, Benyamim Tsedaka, Wedel, Zsengeller).Mit Maria Macuchs biographischer Skizze uber ihren Vaters wird der Band abgerundet.

This book makes four bold claims: 1) life is an ultimate datum, open to philosophical analysis and irreducible to physical reality; hence all materialist-reductionist explanations - most current theories - of life are false. 2) All life presupposes soul (entelechy) without which a being would at best fake life. 3) The concept of life isanalogous and the most direct access to life in its irreducibility is gained through consciousness; 4) All life possesses an objective and intrinsic value that needs to be respected, human life possesses beyond this an inviolable dignity. Life and personal life are pure perfections, it being absolutely better to possess (personal) life than not to possess it.Chapter 1: the metaphysical essence and the many meanings of 'life,' as well as its 'transcendental' character. Chapter 2: the irreducibility ofbiological life, its amazing empirical and philosophically intelligible essential features, and the ways of knowing them. Chapter 3: the immediate evidence and indubitable givenness of mental, conscious life as well as questions of (brain-) death and immortality. Chapter 4: the inviolable objective dignity of personal life and its self-transcendence; a new theory of the fourfold source of human dignity and rights. Chapter 5 (in dialogue-form): methods and results of philosophy versus those of empirical life-sciences.

The Life of Shabkar has long been recognized by Tibetans as one of the master works of their religious heritage. Following his inspired youth and early training in his native province of Amdo under the guidance of several extraordinary Buddhist masters, Shabkar Tsodruk Rangdrol devoted himself to many years of meditation in solitary retreat. With determination and courage, he mastered the highest and most esoteric practices of the Tibetan tradition of the Great Perfection. He then wandered far and wide over the Himalayan region expressing his realization. His autobiography vividly reflects the values and visionary imagery of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the social and cultural life of early nineteenth century Tibet.
