The studies of the Isiac Cults are forty years old. Many of the scholars who have contributed to the development of this particular field of research, - the diffusion of the Egyptian cults in the Graeco-Roman world -, met in the Futuroscope of Poitiers for a three-day colloquium, to establish the progress of research, and the subjects which need more discussion. The synthesis of this colloquium is presented in this volume. The best specialists in the world give their assessment of the past forty years of research: which tools do students and scholars have? Which -provisional- conclusions can be drawn about, for example, the hellenization of Isis, the reality of the Roman soldier's devotion to Isis or Sarapis, the celebration of the "Isiaca" in Rome from Republican days well into the Empire? This volume is a very useful update on what we do and do not know in the study of the Isiac cults in the Graeco-Roman world.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Design (Industrie, Grafik, Mode), Note: 1,00, Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe (Produktdesign), Veranstaltung: Designtheorie, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ich habe versucht im Folgenden verschiedene Strömungen, insbesondere Radical-Design, Pop-Design, Alchimia und Memphis gegeneinander abzugrenzen bzw. Besonderheiten herauszuarbeiten. Dies insbesondere im Hinblick auf ein Verstehen von Memphis. Die meistgelesene Feststellung, dass der Funktionalismus kritisiert und in Frage gestellt wurde, griff für mich zu kurz und rechtfertigte Memphis für mich nicht, da die grundsätzliche Kritik und Infragestellung der bis dahin gültigen „guten Zweckform“ bereits Mitte der sechziger Jahre stattgefunden hatte. Auch meine Annahme, dass diese Auseinandersetzung sich noch nicht in Objekten manifestiert hatte, ist nur bedingt richtig. Gleichzeitig ist der Blick auf den Zeitraum von etwa 1950 bis etwa 1980 ein Blick auf den Wandel des Begriffs „Funktionalismus“. In den Nachkriegsjahren, also in den 50er und 60er Jahre hatte sich in Italien ein ästhetisch ausgereiftes, formal reduziertes, zweckdienliches und rationales Design durchgesetzt, das als „Bel Design“, also „Schönes Design“ bezeichnet wird. Aufgrund der tiefen Einbettung in industrielle Prozesse wurde auf „nutzloses“, d.h. vor allem produktionstechnisch widersinniges, Dekor verzichtet. Allgemeine Kritik an unreflektiertem Konsum, d.h. an einer allzu trägen Wohlstandsgesellschaft und die dämmernde Erkenntnis, dass besonders der Wohnungsbau des International Style mitunter menschenunwürdige Züge trägt, lassen in den 60er Jahren erstmals Stimmen gegen dieses Selbstverständnis von Design laut werden.
