Naked as possible in cities, these

Young look enchanted. Each attentive face

Could shine a god or goddess in the trees

Of a great forest where the roots found place

Long before man. Yes, in this daze of heat,

Stripped bodies could have stepped from anywhere

To anywhere. The street’s no more a street

Of houses where the people have to share

The sense of time. Look, naked children run

Into the water, splashing fountains too

Constant for usual days. They have begun

To change before the watchers’ eyes and show

How light is palpable, how day is new,

And, strangely, more so in the sunset glow.

In a Garden

When the gardener has gone this garden

Looks wistful and seems waiting an event.

It is so spruce, a metaphor of Eden

And even more so since the gardener went,

Quietly godlike, but, of course, he had

Not made me promise anything, and I

Had no one tempting me to make the bad

Choice. Yet I still felt lost and wonder why.

Even the beech tree from next door which shares

Its shadow with me, seemed a kind of threat.

2: Sexuality: a conceptual and historical essay

Slice ePub May 22, 2014


André E. Haynal

Some historical hints

Sexuality has been at the centre of interest of psychoanalysis. Is it still today? What was the novelty Freud brought into this domain? There is no doubt that sexuality was also at the centre of Freud's interest. He used bits and pieces of the then new observations and the discourse of the contemporary sexologists to lay the foundation for his own new science. But what were the news he put before the eyes of a stunned world of 1905, a century ago, provoking much admiration and much resistance?

First let us remember that at the time of the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams (1900a), he wrote to Fliess: “A theory of sexuality might well be the dream book's immediate successor” and its complement (1905d, p. 129, Letter 128). Why this? We may speculate that discovering the sexual nature and the unconscious wish at the root of the dreams led him more than other former experiences with sexuality to the elaboration of its theory. The instinctual drives became the foundation of fantasy life, and this has remained perhaps the most important element in psychoanalytic practice until today. It is perhaps no coincidence that he always tried to keep these two books, the one on dreams and that on sexuality—and only these—up to date. They were the pillars of his doctrine.In general terms, on the cultural scene, he allowed people to speak about sexuality. The author of the Aphasia Studies created a language and, together with others such as Krafft-Ebing, supplied terms like masochism, sadism, narcissism, inhibition, and many others, allowing what one thought about sex to be formulated. He brought the sexually determined contents out of the closet of medical consultation-room and the Latin jargon into everyday language. In a little circle of men—who also had some sexual problems of their own, as in the case of Stekel, Ferenczi, Jones, Tausk, Gross, Jung, and others—the sensitivity for this dimension was brought to life so that a scientific discourse could slowly emerge, partly borrowed from the sexologists.

5. Factory Method Design Pattern

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Womens movements would form among the factory workers, a great mobilisation that destroyed the old models.

Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, thats why it is so complicated.

Create your own method. Dont depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you.

As part of the creational category of design patterns, the Factory Method pattern is involved with creating something. In the case of the Factory Method, the something created is a product that is not tied to the class that creates it. Instead, in order to maintain loose coupling, the client makes the request through a factory. The factory then makes the requested product. Another way of thinking about it is that the Factory Method frees the product from the requestor. Figure5-1 shows a class diagram of the Factory Method.
