Why Thoughts Are Better Than Music Or Emily Dickinson's Fascicle 18 As A Lyric Sequence, Robert Bray Dec 1997

Why Thoughts Are Better Than Music Or Emily Dickinson's Fascicle 18 As A Lyric Sequence, Robert Bray

Robert Bray

Recently, an old argument concerning the existence of God has made a comeback: the "Argument from Design." Some scientists, physicists and biologists especially, have declared that the cosmos, from tiniest micro to uttermost macro, not only reveals a design, but one so complex as to be impossible by accident, hence entailing a designer. From perceived real design they infer an imperceptible ideal designer-God the Creator. Invert this and you have the position in which I find myself while studying Emily Dickinson's "fascicles" (a frankly ugly and pseudo-technical name for a beautiful phenomenon in poetry). The physical evidence of the ...

Porphyry And Plotinus On The Reality Of Relations, Dirk Baltzly Dec 1997

Porphyry And Plotinus On The Reality Of Relations, Dirk Baltzly

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Both Plotinus and Porphyry contribute in their own ways to the tradition of neoplatonic commentaries on Aristotle’s Categories. In 6.1-2, Plotinus argues that Aristotle’s ten categories are not adequate as an account of the genera of Being and that for this purpose they ought to be supplanted by the five greatest kinds from Plato’s Sophist. In 6.3, he acknowledges that it would be desirable to have a system of categories, not genera, for the sensible realm. He proposes several reductions of Aristotle’s ten categories to more compact schemes and finally seems to settle on ...


Second Cause In Posterior Analytics Ii.11, Evelyn Barker Dec 1997

Second Cause In Posterior Analytics Ii.11, Evelyn Barker

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

I contend that the second cause of Posterior Analytics II.11 expresses Aristotle's doctrine of material cause as hypothetical necessity in Physics II. Aristotle presents two formulations of the second cause in Posterior Analytics II. 11, which he "clearly" means to be equivalent. These two formulations of the second cause, taken literally without reference to the definition of the syllogism, fit Aristotle's description of a material cause being "hypothetical necessity" in Physics II - that is, a necessary means to produce a goal. In Physics II.9 Aristotle's thesis that an elementary mathematical definition is a "hypothetical necessity ...

Ramón López Velarde 1888–1921, J. Agustín Pastén B. Dec 1997

Ramón López Velarde 1888–1921, J. Agustín Pastén B.

Spanish Language and Literature

Modern Mexican poetry begins with Ramón López Velarde. He is undoubtedly one of the most genuine poetic voices to inhabit that hard-to-classify period in Spanish American literature that stretches from Modernism to the vanguard poets. As a major representative of Spanish American postmodernismo (that is, the period that followed Modernismo), he is the first writer in Mexico to thematize the Mexican province in a new way. But he ought not be reduced to being the poet of the province. López Velarde was above all the creator of a new poetic language; this alone distinguishes him from González Martínez, for example ...


Enrique González Martínez 1871–1952, J. Agustín Pastén B. Dec 1997

Enrique González Martínez 1871–1952, J. Agustín Pastén B.

Spanish Language and Literature

Some have called González Martínez the last great modernist poet; others prefer to consider him the first of the postmodernists. In the end, both opinions are partially correct. He never completely abandoned certain key features of modernism. Similarly, by avoiding its superficial aspects and focusing instead on the hidden property of things, González Martínez paved the way for a type of poetic sensibility that for the first time in Latin American literature paid attention to local concerns. González Martínez’s poetic production was abundant, even though he led a very active life. He was a medical doctor, professor, and diplomat ...


Manuel Gutiérrez Nájera 1859–1895, J. Agustín Pastén B. Dec 1997

Manuel Gutiérrez Nájera 1859–1895, J. Agustín Pastén B.

Spanish Language and Literature

Manual Gutiérrez Nájera, one of Mexico's best-known writers of the 19th century, has traditionally been considered one of four precursors of the Modernist period of Spanish American literature (1875–1925). It was customarily believed that the genesis of Modernismo lay in innovations in poetry, thus it was Nájera's poetic production that received the attention of the critics for a long time. In the past few years, however, after careful examination of the modernist writers' prose works, scholars have discovered not only that the first signs of Modernismo are to be found in prose, but that Nájera's major ...

Resistance To Rescue: The Indians Of Bahapki And Mrs. Annie E. K. Bidwell, Margaret D. Jacobs Dec 1997

Resistance To Rescue: The Indians Of Bahapki And Mrs. Annie E. K. Bidwell, Margaret D. Jacobs

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Annie Bidwell, whose story is told here, was an exemplar of the nineteenth-century Euro-American female humanitarian reform impulse. She worked diligently to introduce Christianity and domesticity to the Maidu and Bahapki Indians who lived and worked for her husband at Rancho Chico, paying special attention to the women and children. Bidwell had no doubt that her insistence on acculturation was in their best interests. But from the perspective of the Indians, she was a destroyer. Insofar as they could, they resisted her efforts to change their religion, their child-rearing practices, and their family relationships. Margaret Jacobs successfully “reads through” Bidwell ...


Review Of: Jan Borme And Matthew Graves, Ed. Bruce Chatwin: Anatomy Of Restlessness (1996), Richard Utz Dec 1997

Review Of: Jan Borme And Matthew Graves, Ed. Bruce Chatwin: Anatomy Of Restlessness (1996), Richard Utz

Richard Utz

When a writer of great promise dies early, literary and biographical mythmaking commences almost immediately. In the case of Bruce Chatwin, there is the question--raised for example by his friend Paul Theroux ("Chatwin Revisited" 15)--about the novelist's sexual orientation; there is the perhaps related question of his mysterious and lethal illness; there is his habit of travelling around the globe and telling tall tales to individual listeners and larger audiences; and most of all there is his clandestine joy about shrouding his own writerly persona in the druidical mist of (pseudo-)biographical data....

Review Of: John Wilson Swope, Ready-To-Use Activities For Teaching Shakespeare (1993-1997), Richard Utz Dec 1997

Review Of: John Wilson Swope, Ready-To-Use Activities For Teaching Shakespeare (1993-1997), Richard Utz

Richard Utz

Swope's recent volumes will be a pleasant surprise for many an instructor at the "Sekundarstufe II" level who has been searching for a student-centered companion volume to one of the numerous editions of Shakespeare's plays. The author is a convinced and experienced practitioner of the Whole-Language Approach as proposed by Hazel Brown's and Brian Cambourne's Read and Retell: A Strategy for the Whole Language Classroom (Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann, 1990). Brown/Cambourne reject educational methods which fragment language into the subdivisions of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. They define language....
