Divination is any ritual and its associated tradition performed in order to ask a more-than-human intelligence for guidance. A universal human practice, it has received surprisingly little academic attention. This interdisciplinary collection by leading scholars in the field is dedicated to fascinating new insights into divination and oracles arising from recent work in anthropology, religious studies, history and classical studies. Central importance is given to the practical and theoretical perspectives of diviners as well as scholars of divination; several contributors are both. This book explores philosophical issues such as the nature of divinatory intelligence, the relationship between divinatory and metaphorical truth, the primacy of ontology over epistemology, the importance of reflexivity in scholarly studies of divination, and astrology as the principal Western form of divination. The ethnographic and historical examples range from contemporary Nigeria, urban Cuba, Mayan Guatemala and the shamanic cultures of the circumpolar Arctic to classical Greece and ancient Judea.

Dies ist das grundlegende Werk über die Entdeckung der Kontinentaldrift und die Entstehung der Kontinente. Wegeners Theorie von der Verschiebung der Kontinente blieb zu seinen Lebzeiten immer umstritten und geriet nach seinem Tod rasch in Vergessenheit. Erst seit den 1970er Jahren ist seine Theorie allgemein anerkannt. Seit dem Jahr 1911 fand er mehrfache Belege dafür, z.B. die Ähnlichkeit der Konturen von Südamerika und Afrika, dass die bisherige Auffassung von feststehenden Kontinenten nicht richtig sein konnte. Wegener geht in seiner Theorie von einem Urkontinent aus. Aus diesem Urkontinent names "Gondwana" haben sich demnach im Laufe der Erdgeschichte durch Auseinanderbrechen des Urkontinents und anschließenden Auseinanderdriftens der Bruchteile die verschiedenen Kontinente und Ozeane gebildet. Ungeklärt ist bei Wegener allerdings die Ursache der Kräfte, die für das Auseinanderdriften sorgen. Auch deshalb fand seine Theorie zu seinen Lebzeiten nur wenig Anerkennung und führte zum späten Durchbruch der Theorie.

>Der zwölfte Planet liefert eindrucksvolle Belege für die Existenz eines zusätzlichen Planeten in unserem Sonnensystem: Nibiru - der Heimatplanet der Anunnaki, jene die vom Himmel auf die Erde kamen. Zecharia Sitchin schildert in diesem Ausnahmewerk die Ursprünge der Menschheit anhand von Erkenntnissen aus der Archäologie, der Mythologie und antiken Texten und dokumentiert außerirdische Einflüsse auf die Erdgeschichte. Er konzentriert sich dabei vorwiegend auf das alte Sumer und enthüllt mit beeindruckender Genauigkeit die vollständige Geschichte unseres Sonnensystems, wie sie von den Besuchern eines anderen Planeten erzählt wurde, der sich alle 3.600 Jahre der Erde nähert. Der zwölfte Planet ist das kritische Standardwerk über die Astronauten der Antike - wie sie hierhergelangten, wann sie kamen und wie ihre Technologie und Kultur die menschliche Rasse seit Hunderttausenden von Jahren beeinflußt. Aufregend ... glaubwürdig ... sehr provokativ und zwingend. Der zwölfte Planet präsentiert Nachweise für eine völlig neue Theorie, die einige uralte Fragen beantwortet und einiges an Wellen schlagen wird (wie der Autor selbst schreibt: Wenn die Nefilim den Menschen erschaffen haben - wer hat dann die Nefilim erschaffen ...?) Library Journal Eines der wichtigsten Bücher über die Ursprünge der Erde, das je geschrieben wurde. East West Magazine Sitchin ist ein eifriger Erforscher der Ursprünge des Menschen. Eine unglaubliche Leistung. Kirkus Reviews Sitchins Buch ist nichts geringeres als eine Sensation (...). Ein nüchternes und ausgezeichnet recherchiertes Buch mit tiefschürfenden Schlußfolgerungen und ganz offensichtlich das Ergebnis akribischer und scharfsinniger Forschungsarbeiten an den Texten vergangener Zeitalter. Als solches ist es aufrichtig und überzeugend.
