By Lucretius

Le poème de Lucrèce (98 ou ninety four av J-C- fifty five av J-C) est un des textes fondateurs de l. a. philosophie en Occident. automobile Lucrèce s'y montre plus qu'un easy sectateur d'Epicure : disciple fécond, il est comme le refondateur à Rome de l'épicurisme athénien. Loin de se présenter comme un système rigoureusement ordonné par des prémisses ou dicté par des axiomes, cette philosophie n'a d'autre yet que l'apaisement ethical de l'homme, plutôt que l. a. connaissance du monde. Tout au lengthy des siècles, une fois ce poème redécouvert au début de l. a. Renaissance, los angeles Nature des choses n'a cessé d'être une référence philosophique. Qu'on lise, au dernier livre, les passages consacrés à l. a. peste. los angeles peste est un argument que toute théodicée doit réfuter puisqu'elle pose, de manière spectaculaire, le scandale de los angeles mort du juste et de l'innocent. Or Lucrèce ne réfute pas los angeles peste, il s'en sert, au contraire, pour montrer l'absence de windfall, et du même coup guérir l'âme d'une maladie autrement essentielle, l. a. peur de los angeles mort. Ce qui fait scandale, ce n'est plus l. a. peste, c'est tout simplement Lucrèce.

Example text

Before dawn I saw lights from the football field at Driggs. The potato harvest is on and the Redskins practice early to get the crop in while the weather holds. Snow already in the timberline. A ladybug inching up a long brown stalk makes a leap of faith to my knee, and a few flies buzz in the drowsy thistle heads. A pickup sweeps by down on Hatch's road, from here about the size of the ladybug it seems. Elk season, and a shot rings down from the mountain. How old is this spidery thistle branch?

Page 55 Sexual The word attacks the page again and again. Looks for a hold to absorb it. Ink fills up the porous wells, pools up inside like the sea. A pale birdcry where no bird should be.

The fox on the hillside, across the slim ravine, watches to see where I might be going and what it is I might do.  I suspect that she is always watching and almost never lonely.
