Update: Prose "Un Cœur simple... et son ambivalence compliquée"

Here:
Un Cœur simple... et son ambivalence compliquée

An essay in French on "Un Cœur simple," a celebrated short story by Gustav Flaubert. It examines the nature of empathy as exemplified in a simple heart.

My essay aside, Flaubert is fascinating, to say the very least. The language is fairly accessible to beginning French students (myself included), if one goes slow enough.

The story is included in a book called "Trois Contes," or "Three Tales," and can be read in a number of places online, of which I indicate one: Gustav Flaubert

»Das Wild, das ich jage, das ist der Tod,«

Last night I experienced a paralyzing fit (if there is such a thing) of depression. I went outside to throw away some garbages, and suddenly an incredible fear of loneliness struck internally. I was shivering not because of the cold but because of the gulf that overwhelmed me in terror from the inside.

Irony is difficult

Speaking with irony, if one does to speak thus at all, must be done well: that is, boldly but appropriately.

自分について(ばとん)

よしほから回ってきた「自分バトン」、やりました。自分についてそれほど真剣に考えないので結構難しかったです。ちょっとひねくれた回答もあるかもしれませんが、その程度のヒューモアしか持ち合わせていないということです。ごめんなさい。

The Philosophical Gourmet Report

The philosophical Gourmet Report 2004-2006, "a ranking of graduate programs in philosophy in the English-speaking world," edited by Brian Leiter (UT Austin), came out online this morning.

Very interesting to me, not so much for most people. But take a look, if you felt like it.

I realize that those universities that rank highest in the overall ranking are often not so strong in philosophy of religion and philosophy of art, in which I am strongly interested. This is partly attributable, of course, to the increasingly meaningless analytic/continental distinction of the philosophical tradition (in the last century).

For someone interested in studying philosophy of language, religion, and aesthetics, with fairly substantial attention to so-called continental philosophy, i.e., for me, then, the best two programs seem to be offered by: Oxford, Yale, Chicago, Texas, etc.

It would take a miracle (or two) to get me into those programs, to be sure. And this ranking shouldn't concern me any more than this kind of ranking appropriately does. Yet the time will come, as I am determined to go study philosophy at some university. I wonder which ones I'll be looking a year from now.

喩えて言うなら

誰かの名を呼ぶなら
いつかあの日
野に咲く花を摘んだ
その右手を
幼い子どものように
一番近くの
空をつかむように
言葉のすべてに
許された気持ちで
形を持たない声の
導くままに
心溶かす風に
身をまかせて
君の名前を呼ぶなら

Ups and Downs

Everything that lasts longer than a moment
――is tortuously long;
Everything that falls short of eternity
――is tortuously short!
Life is then both too long
――and too short!

ともだち、ひとり

To live alone one must be a beast or a god, says Aristotle. Leaving out the third case: one must be both――a philosopher.

(Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols "Maxims and Arrows," 3)


独りきりで生きるためには、人は獣か神にならなければいけない、とアリストテレスは言った。しかしもう一つ、可能性が残っている。即ち、獣と神に一度になることーー哲学者になること!

(ニーチェ 『偶像の黄昏』 “金言と矢” 3)
