An individual testimony, isolated from all its surroundings in an author's work, seems often quite decisive, yet when we read the work itself our faith in the value of the argument based on such partial quotation is either very much shaken or else disappears entirely. In the centuries following Spinoza various monisms such as Hegelian idealism, the dialectical materialism of Marx, or modern scientific naturalism, would come to constitute the philosophical milieu from within which many historical-critical scholars would conduct their research.

What memories or experiences come to mind when you read? The wealth of manuscripts of the whole or parts of the Greek New Testament far exceeds that existing for any other ancient writings (Nestle mentions 3,829: 127 uncials and 3,702 cursives: Introduction to the Textual Criticism of the Greek New Testament, English translation, 34-35, 81); the manuscripts of versions (excluding the Vulgate, reckoned by thousands), are likewise very numerous.

So perhaps it is only on those cloudless, almost vacuumed afternoons with tier upon tier of concrete like rib-bones packed above them, and they lightheaded with the blue airiness spinning around, and muzzy, a neuralgia calling at random like frail relations, a phone ringing in a distant office they cannot get to, that they become attentive, or we do — these divisions persisting, indeed what we talk about, we, constructing these webs of buildings which, caulked like great whales about us, are always aware that some trick of the light or weather will dress them as friends, pleading and flailing — and fill with placid but unbearable melodies us in deep hinterlands of incurved glass.

Copy and paste your notes in the text box below. Letters from the Popes of the first three centuries, for instance, contain parts of docu- ments dating from the sixth, seventh, and eighth centuries. Powis Smith, "The Contribution of the United Stales to Old Testament Scholarship," Expository Times 41 (1929-1930): 169-171. [9] See Handkommentar zum Alten Testament, 15 vols., ed. Numerous clay tablets in cuneiform have also been found at Ugarit. And finally, there are a few consonants [that] have no valence for either of these qualities." p.84 "one of the characteristics of 'tenderness' at least as chosen by this reader, may be a predominance of the reduced vowel in unstressed syllables, whereas 'aggressive' poems may be characterized by a tendency to fill even the unstressed metrical positions with full vowels ... 'tenderness' may be characterized by a tendency to use long vowels in stressed syllables in preference to short ones, in order to slow down the poetic rhythm" p.96 - "there is evidence of something very close to metaphoric quality in the tendency to associate a few types of language sounds with certain quantitative measures, such as frequent occurrence of high front vowels in words which denote smallness ... (Thus, for example, French poets are careful to avoid the word 'nuit' in passages which evoke a night mood, because the 'bright' vowel would intrude...)"

Where, in what ways, and to what ends does race appear in dominant American culture and shape the ways we interact with one another? But it is obvious that we are not here using these terms in any generic sense, and as they certainly should be used in a generic sense, we shall drop them at once and substitute "episodic" and "encyclopaedic" instead. But they have not always been amiable about it, and the whole affair presents much comic history.

John Cassian: These four previously mentioned figures coalesce, if we desire, in one subject, so that the one and the same Jerusalem can be taken in four senses: historically as the city of the Jews; allegorically as the Church of Christ; anagogically as the heavenly city of God, which is the mother of us all; tropologically, as the soul of man, which is frequently subject to praise or blame from the Lord under this title. [24] God himself, the Lord of history, can alone guarantee this unique form of signification.

The determining of what really took place is often a matter of controversy. and we must keep in mind that elaborate techniques of investigation are used both by historians and by pseudo-historians. Temporary exhibits, such as traveling exhibits, exhibits at world fairs, etc, of a general nature are classed in 707.4. The Unregenerate South: the Agrarian Thought of John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, and Donald Davidson. Perhaps this is inevitable given the huge number of theories and ways of reading that now jostle for our attention, but I was hoping that this would be a little deeper than the few page summaries of Lacan, Saussure, Foucault etc that we get.

A good series of lessons from the elders of Valley Bible Church in Lancaster, California. The greater the writer the more versatile his power of expression; and anybody can understand that the Bible is the last book in the world to be studied as a mere classic by mere human scholarship without any regard to the spirit of sympathy and reverence on the part of the student. In this sense picturesque perception, like the Gothic architecture that seems specially suited to it, is more than just a modern way of seeing.

No critic can ever form accurate judgement unless he possesses the artist’s vision. The third class, finally, comprises the moral laws that govern the activity of free beings, considered as such. With the recovery of religious literature of the Far East, the publication of large numbers of inscriptions from the Graeco-Roman world, and the critical reexamination of the surviving documents of classical literature, the new approach acquired rich material with which to work.

Strategy requires now, I should think, that criticism receive its own charter of rights and function independently. If you are researching a paper for philosophy, religion, or humanities as a discipline, you might, for example, write an interpretive analysis of Fulcanelli�s Mystery of the Cathedrals, choosing as a subject the opinion by some critics that Fulcanelli reports symbolic meanings in the architecture of the Chartres Cathedral that simply aren�t there. In recent years I have seen a whole new crop of young scholars with the ability to address substantive academic issues in compelling and interesting ways with the result that these 'academic' books are actually fun to read.. ..
