Karen E. Fields, translator’s introduction to Elementary Forms of the Religious Life, by Emile Durkheim:

“Durkheim breathed the air of turn-of-the-century Paris, a place that fizzed with experiments in artistic representation, and a time when philosophy, science, and art existed in nothing like today’s isolation from one another.24

 

24  Judith Ryan provides an illuminating account of the links joining physics, psychology, philosophy, painting, and literature in The Vanishing Subject: Early Psychology and Literary Modernism, Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 1991.”

And today’s Crimson provides an illuminating account of Judith Ryan and (implicitly) forms of the religious life at Harvard.

Space, Time, and Scarlett

From last night’s Grammy awards, lyrics performed by Christina Aguilera and Herbie Hancock:

“a place where there’s no space or time”
Leon Russell

Not bad, but as Kat358 noted on May 4, 2005,

“Scarlett Johansson does this ‘old Hollywood glam’ look much better.”

For a reference to the place described in Russell’s lyrics, see the riff on the number “265”
linked to in last night’s “Midnight in the Garden of the Soul.”

Midnight in the Garden
of the Soul

(continued)This time slot, reserved at midnight,
seems to belong to Frank Goodman,
who, according to this morning’s
(3 AM) New York Times, was
“one of the last of the old-time
Broadway press agents.”
