Schizophrenia (GU, 2/26/1)

Elizabeth Jennings Carcanet Press Ltd. PDF


There is a mad girl in the house where I

Have lodged for ten years now.

It took a time to recognise in her

The central sickness. Now my life is how

Often I can avoid her since she has

A sickness that’s expressed

In long complaints. Here conversation is

Often obscene. I used to do my best

To help, to listen, seeing her isolation.

I could not keep it up and

When I found that she could never give expression

To care or love I knew I had to stop

Her power over me, my door tapped on

At two or three a.m.

Yet I still feel a sort of sickness, misery also when

I climb up to the safety of my room

She cuts me or is rude in other ways,

Often I believe

Some evil spirit fells her lonely days

And that maybe exorcism would relieve

Her life of loathing. I felt useless when

She threw across the floor

A little Christmas present. Is her pain

Only relieved by hatred? I’m not sure

But I know I cannot live with pity long

And have to be callous. If she were a child

My heart would beat in strong

Love. As it is she makes me feel defiled.

7. Yucatán: Thought Situated in Radical Exteriority as a Thinking of Concrete Fluid Singularities

Alejandro Arturo Vallega Indiana University Press ePub

Hoy lo universal es también la visión desmesurada del latinoamericano.

Today what is universal is also the unbridled vision of Latin Americans.

—Miguel Littin

The previous chapters led us to a difficult place. Latin American thought is not about Latin America but figures a yet unthought delimitation of the very system we have come to know as modernity and modern philosophy. The exposure to this situation offers an opening for thinking from beyond the instrumental rationalism of contemporary modernity, from radical exteriority. Latin America is a concrete living and articulate reality that, as the underside of modernity, displaces the Western North American and European claims to a hegemonic, self-sufficient, and autonomous power and causes a fecund opening for understanding anew philosophical thought. In this sense, Latin American thought arises not as exterior to Western modernity but out of its own distinct experience. One finds an opening toward this displacement in Dussel’s call for a geopolitical consciousness with respect to thought and along with it a need for thinking otherwise than in terms of the Western modern tradition. It is not enough to recognize the site of enunciation; the movement of thought and the way the situation is heard and enunciated are also in question. The first section of this chapter introduces a general way of situating one’s thought in relation to our previous discussion by shifting from a system-oriented thought to a thinking with and out of fluid singularities and their events. The second section, titled “Yucatàn,” refers to the situation and space opened up for philosophical thought when one sets out from the radical transformative movement figured by Latin American reality and thought.

GroupBy organizes a flat input sequence into sequences of groups. For example, the following organizes all the files in c:\temp by extension:

or if youre comfortable with implicit typing:

Heres how to enumerate the result:

Enumerable.GroupBy works by reading the input elements into a temporary dictionary of lists so that all elements with the same key end up in the same sublist. It then emits a sequence of groupings. A grouping is a sequence with a Key property:

By default, the elements in each grouping are untransformed input elements, unless you specify an elementSelector argument. The following projects each input element to uppercase:

ientras Fidias de Atenas luchaba por expresar una visión de los dioses y semidioses, algunos de sus contemporáneos tomaron una dirección diferente. Parece que pensaron que un cuerpo es bello por sí mismo y bien merece un estudio detallado. La cuestión para ellos no era «¿cuál es el pensamiento más noble que puede expresar un cuerpo?» sino « ¿cuál es la mejor forma de representar el cuerpo en sí?».

Los hombres como Fidias y sus colegas más cercanos fueron bendecidos con la inconciencia del mejor modo de esculpir la forma humana; la profundidad de sus pensamientos ennoblecían cualquier vehículo que utilizaran. En manos de hombres inferiores, la práctica de

Fidias podría no haber tenido éxito, de no ser por la influencia beneficiosa de otra escuela.

Esta escuela estaba encabezada por Policleto de Argos, un hombre que no tenía rival en conocimientos técnicos y científicos, pero que se impacientaba ante la enormidad de las ideas que hacen que el hombre se eleve sobre las demás criaturas. «El verdadero arte», dice Ruskin, «emana del corazón y se alía con la cabeza, inferior al corazón, y con la mano, y así sale a la luz el hombre». Todo el arte de Fidias emanaba del corazón, es decir, del alma, del lado más noble del hombre. Hizo un poderoso llamamiento a aquellas personas que tenían vigor y sinceridad en las emociones. El arte de Argos emanaba de la cabeza, a la que se le une la habilidad de las manos como un poderoso aliado. El Dr. Waldstein, en un reciente artículo sobre Policleto, llega a la conclusión de que éste era el escultor griego de la belleza par excellence. Puede que así sea, pero la suya era una belleza meramente física, agradable de contemplar cuando está en su mejor momento, como en los fragmentos del Heraion Argivo (que puede que fuera obra suya), pero nunca es sinónimo de bondad y nobleza, cuyo contacto hace a los hombres mejores y más felices.
