Ljubljana

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 10:57 AM

Last night's 11:59 PM post linked to some news from Slovenia

"Ulay, the performance artist whose provocative collaborations with
Marina Abramovic often led them to push each other to extremes,
died on Monday at his home in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He was 76."

— Alex Marshall in The New York Times

Ljubljana last appeared in this  journal on August 10, 2011, in a  post
titled "Objectivity."

A number related to that concept — 

Euclid's Elements, Book I, Proposition 47.

Trudeau Revisited

More-recent remarks by Trudeau —

Bible Stories for Skeptics

Review
With a bit of a twinkle in his eye, Richard Trudeau—a skeptic, retired Unitarian Universalist minister, Harvard Divinity School grad and (though he doesn't use the word) humanist—removes the supernaturalism from some of the common stories in the Judeo-Christian Bible for the edification of non-scholars. He links them to history as known to archeologists and serious historians and tries to salvage some things of value in the collection of diverse materials in the book…. 
— Edd Doerr, book reviewer for The Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association

About the Author
Richard Trudeau is minister emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Weymouth, Massachusetts. He holds a Master of Divinity degree with concentration in biblical studies from Harvard Divinity School. He is also professor emeritus of Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts, where he specialized in the history of mathematics, the philosophy of science and the history of astronomy. His previous books include Universalism 101 and The Non-Euclidean Revolution.

Sisteen

“Nuvoletta in her lightdress, spunn of sisteen shimmers,
was looking down on them, leaning over the bannistars….

Fuvver, that Skand, he was up in Norwood’s sokaparlour….”

Finnegans Wake

To counteract the darkness of today’s 2:01 AM entry—

Part I— Artist Josefine Lyche describes her methods

A “Internet and hard work”
B “Books, both fiction and theory”

Part II I, too, now rely mostly on the Internet for material. However, like Lyche, I have Plan B— books.

Where I happen to be now, there are piles of them. Here is the pile nearest to hand, from top to bottom.

(The books are in no particular order, and put in the same pile for no particular reason.)

  1. Philip Rieff— Sacred Order/Social Order, Vol. I: My Life Among the Deathworks
  2. Dennis L. Weeks— Steps Toward Salvation: An Examination of Coinherence and Substitution in the Seven Novels of Charles Williams
  3. Erwin Panofsky— Idea: A Concept in Art Theory
  4. Max Picard— The World of Silence
  5. Walter J. Ong, S. J.— Hopkins, the Self, and God
  6. Richard Robinson— Definition
  7. X. J. Kennedy and Dana Gioia, eds.— An Introduction to Poetry
  8. Richard J. Trudeau— The Non-Euclidean Revolution
  9. William T. Noon, S. J.— Joyce and Aquinas
  10. Munro Leaf— Four-and-Twenty Watchbirds
  11. Jane Scovell— Oona: Living in the Shadows
  12. Charles Williams— The Figure of Beatrice
  13. Francis L. Fennell, ed.— The Fine Delight: Centenary Essays on the Poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins
  14. Hilary Putnam— Renewing Philosophy
  15. Paul Tillich— On the Boundary
  16. C. S. Lewis— George MacDonald

Lyche probably could easily make her own list of what Joyce might call “sisteen shimmers.”
