Change Arises: A Literary Example

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 12:12 PM

The “Change Arises” part of the title refers to the previous post.
The 1905 “geometric object” there, a 4×4 square, appeared earlier,
in 1869, in a paper by Camille Jordan. For that paper, and the
“literary example” of the title, see “Ici vient M. Jordan .”

This  post was suggested by the appearance of Jordan in today’s
memorial post for Peter M. Neumann by Peter J. Cameron.

Cavell’s Matrix

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 3:00 AM

From an obituary for Stanley Cavell, Harvard philosopher
who reportedly died at 91 on Tuesday,  June 19:

The London Review of Books  weblog yesterday —

"Michael Wood reviewed [Cavell’s] 
Philosophy the Day after Tomorrow  in 2005:

'The ordinary slips away from us. If we ignore it, we lose it.
If we look at it closely, it becomes extraordinary, the way
words or names become strange if we keep staring at them.
The very notion turns into a baffling riddle.' "
