10 récits ethnologiques à connotation sexuelle.

La eunuque Ce soir j’avais rendez-vous avec une femme un peu spéciale, une femme d’un autre monde, une femme d’un autre temps… Accompagnée par celle qui m’avait contacté, elle avait l’air d’une femme dépouillée de tout, vidée de sa substance féminine, une femme totalement nue, en l’occurrence simplement couverte d’une sorte de linceul ; son guide ayant tout bonnement l’air d’une ethnologue. J’avais ouvert la porte de mon appartement et j’avais dirigé les visiteuses v...

Ética e Política num Estado Democrático de Direito : Uma contribui...

By: António Barbosa Da silva, Ph.D.

Este livro é uma colectânea de artigos escritos por mim no jornal Terra Nova, desde 1991 até à presente data (2012). O propósito desta obra é, em primeiro lugar, fazer uma retrospecção do que tem acontecido desde a introdução do regime democrático em Cabo Verde, isto é, a partir de 13 de Janeiro de 1991, data em que, pela primeira vez, houve eleições livres nas nossas ilhas, das quais resultou o pluralismo partidário, base da nossa presente democracia.

1. Que diferença existe entre um corvo e um ser humano? Antes de tentar responder à pergunta: que diferença existe entre um corvo e um ser humano, devo descrever um acontecimento que me inspirou a escrever este capítulo cujo título, à primeira vista, possa parecer provocativo ao leitor. Em Agosto de 2004 vi, na televisão Norueguesa, um corvo ferido, no topo de uma árvore, a ser salvo por bombeiros, usando helicópteros. Li também no jornal norueguês, diário de Stavang...

Allegorical Expositions of the Holy Laws

By: Philo of Alexandria

Philo used philisophical representations to fuse and harmonize Jewish traditions and Greek philosophy. It interprets both Jewish and historic Greek philosophies.

“It is a melancholy reflection upon the history of the Jews that they have failed to pay due honor to their two greatest philosophers. Spinoza was rejected by his contemporaries from the congregation of Israel; Philo Judaeus was neglected by the generations that followed him.”

Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism

By: Mary Mills Patrick

The following treatise on Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism has been prepared to supply a need much felt in the English language by students of Greek philosophy. For while other schools of Greek philosophy have been exhaustively and critically discussed by English scholars, there are few sources of information available to the student who wishes to make himself familiar with the teachings of Pyrrhonism. The aim has been, accordingly, to give a concise presentation of...

“Interest has revived in the works of Sextus Empiricus in recent times, especially, one may say, since the date of Herbart. There is much in the writings of Sextus that finds a parallel in the methods of modern philosophy. There is a common starting-point in the study of the power and limitations of human thought. There is a common desire to investigate the phenomena of sense-perception, and the genetic relations of man to the lower animals, and a common interest in the ...

Malignants in the Body Politic : Redefining War through Metaphor

By: Douglas R. Stickle

In the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush declared the dawn of a new kind of war. He has repeatedly emphasized that means and measures of success in this new war will differ greatly from wars past. However, if this “war on terrorism” is unlike any other war, then what is it like? From the public statements of high-ranking US officials, metaphorical answers emerge: terrorism is a metastasizing cancer, a plague, a threat from which we are not immune. This study ...

Question and Answer How to reprise lost paradise, where clansmen were always content? On this we ever ask advice, not noting our command’s contempt. Replies arise if we ask right, as sages’ sayings still console, except when wished as black or white, thus missing their integral whole. Each answer’s angst makes us ask more – thus are our suspect lives sustained, supremely sure if we spark war, for our ideals are deep ingrained. We’re punished by our primal rite...

Neutrosofia Ca Reflectare A Realitatii Neconventionale

By: Florentin Smarandache; Paroiu Tudor

pARadOXisMul - ultima avangardă a mileniului doi 1. Definiţie Paradoxismul este o mişcare internaţională de avangardă în literatură, artă, filozofie, chiar şi ştiinţă, bazată pe folosirea excesivă de antiteze, antinomii, contradicţii, oximorone, parabole, paradoxuri în creaţie. A fost înfiinţat de către scriitorul, artistul, şi omul de ştiinţă Florentin Smarandache în anii 1980 în România, care dorea “lărgirea sferei artistice prin elemente neartistice şi prin experim...

L) Limitele filozofiei Întreaga filozofie este un tautologism: adevărat în virtutea de formă, pentru că orice idee lansată pentru prima oară este dovedită ca adevărată de către iniţiatorul(ii) său(i). Prin urmare, filozofia este goală sau dezinformativă, şi reprezintă a priori cunoaşterea. Se poate afirma: Totul este adevărat, chiar si falsul! Şi totuşi, întreaga filozofie este un nihilism: pentru ca orice idee, odată dovedită adevărată, este mai tîrziu dovedită ...
