Calul Troyen

Conform Wikipedia in engleza (restul sunt grote-sc de gresite), Rombout van Troyen a trait 5 ani (c. 1650 – 1655), lucru care il face pe respectivul dude devastator de interesant. Ca orice copil minune, Troyen nu a fost ever in Italia si s-a specializat in pictura de grote, pivnite si alte simboluri de’astea arhaice.

Nu stiu daca e bine sa va las in compania lui asa ca exact asta o sa si fac. Bye-bye.

Creativity and the Capitalist City

This film is more than a local documentary on Amsterdam. It explores the dominant urban re-/development pattern in the name of creativity. The hype around the creative city began already a decade ago, it is global in scope and about to reach its peak. It is the latest strategy for urban renewal in advanced Western capitalist cities. After Richard Florida’s influential book “The Rise of the Creative Class” (2002) creativity has advanced to be the role model of urban regeneration: The New American Dream. What is new about this dream? What happens when the hype is over? Housing as a job or the Right to the City?

Missa L’homme armé

L’homme armé este este titlul unui cantec laic din perioada Renasterii. Extrem de popular in acele timpuri, melodia i-a fost folosita de multi compozitori ai vremii ca si model in construirea cantus firmus-ului pentru Messa.

Cine este acest insa homme armé? Unii il identifica cu Arhanghelul Mihail. Altii, avand in verede ca primele mentiuni ale cantecului coincid surprinzator de mult cu teribila cadere a Constantinopolului (1453), considera homme armé a fi un cruciat ce porneste la lupta impotriva turcilor. Unii autori au observat ca numarul de time signatures din versiunea originala a melodiei este 31 – corespunzator cu numarul de cavaleri a Ordinului lanii de aur (inclus Marele Maestru), ceremoniile acestui ordin incluzand intotdeauna prezenta, cu puternice semnificatii simbolice, unui cavaler in armura.

Studia Humaniora Tartuensia + Philosophia Reformata

Philosophia Reformata (PR) was founded in 1935 by the Dutch philosophers Herman Dooyeweerd and Dirk Vollenhoven. Since its inception it has carried papers, critical studies and reviews that contribute to the on-going project of Christian Philosophy. The journal has its historical and intellectual background in the so-called neo-Calvinist movement that gained momentum through the work of the 19th century Dutch theologian, politician, university founder and publicist Dr. Abraham Kuyper.

Studia Humaniora Tartuensia (SHT) publish scholarly papers and notes embodying original research in all areas of the humanities, but especially classical studies and ancient history, Neo-Latin studies, classical tradition, history of scholarship and philosophy.

Ambele reviste au arhivele on-line, multe articole putand fi accesate liber.

Data fiind situatia din Norvegia, un articol publicat in 2006 in PR mi-a atras atentia:

The Concept of Multicultural Democracy: A Preliminary Christian-Philosophical Appraisal.

Newspaper Wood

Imi aduc aminte cum, acum cativa ani, in drum spre scoala, trebuia sa trec pe langa o cladire. Asa. Neavand superpowers nu puteam trece prin ea. Asa ca treceam pe langa ea.

Si pentru ca respectiva casa se afla in ceva oras occidental ultra-capitalist, ii erau depuse pe treptele de la intrare, destul de des, cateva zeci de volume imense de WhitePages. Se pare ca nimeni din cladire nu era un fanatic admirator al acelor superb-ilustrate volume, asa ca Bibliile consumerismului se uscau / udau de ciuda – in functiile de conditiile atmosferice – pana cand cineva, cu inima mare, se indura sa mai adauge cateva zeci de voume la cele deja existente. Si ma intrebam: ce oare se poate face cu asa ceva? Well, se pare ca olandezul Mieke Meijer a gasit un posibil raspuns.
