Abstract

Comes from the 10th century the oldest codex with the treatise On the Sublime. For a long time attributed to Cassius Longinus (third century ), the text is now generally considered a first century work, written by an anonymous or a Dionysius Longinus whose life and work is unknown. Ignored, as it seems, in Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the text came to meet its editio princeps only in 1554, in Basel and by the hand of Francesco Robortello. It was then successively edited and translated, first into Latin and later into several European languages, starting with the famous French version of Boileau that for a long time was the main source for the knowledge of the treatise in Europe. Peri Hypsous moves away from the stylistic approach of ancient rhetorical books and presents a definition of Sublime as a quality of discourse which produces in the hearers and readers not persuasion but wonder and ecstasy. It is precisely this idea of wonder and shudder that has inspired the works of Burke (A Philosophical Enquiry into the origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful, 1757) and Kant, by whose hands the treatise On the Sublime entered the history of Western Aesthetics.

Abstract

This book, which comprises four different parts, divided into eighteen chapters, puts forward an analysis drawing both from philosophy and from literary hermeneutics. Its guiding thread are the creative or «poietic» processes through which the «self» forms and transforms itself as a configuration of symbols and a work of language, in the laboratory of (auto)biographic memory and imagination. The book sheds light on the open, exploratory and experimental character of literature in general and of the experiences of writing and narrating in particular. But it also emphasizes the elusive, unstable and perhaps never fully graspable trait of these experiences in a first person perspective. In the book, the processes of subjectivity and identity (personal or collective) are explored and the mechanisms for interpreting life and world are investigated.

Abstract

The discovery and introduction of penicillin into therapeutics changed the prognostic of infectious diseases, altered the path of medicine and saved innumerous lives. It was a major discovery in the history of medicine and represented the starting point for research that led to the discovery of other antibiotics. Portugal was one of the first European countries, non-participant in the II World War, to obtain penicillin for civilian use. Good diplomatic relations between Portugal, Brazil and the United States of America (USA) were decisive in attaining penicillin for our country. Portuguese pharmacists and physicians immediately perceived the significance of the antibiotic and developed innumerous studies pertaining the clinical applications and quality of the antibiotic.

Therefore, retaking the arguments of past discussions, nómos versus phýsis are considered in their process of transmission and reception.

Abstract

Gonçalo M. Tavares is a writer who thrives on thought. His fiction feeds off a large epistemological debate that finds in Literature a privileged field of experience and observation of the ethical dilemmas in the posthuman world. As a sort of speculative anthropologist, he employs multiple genres to foster a wide debate on the limits of that which is human, its existential scope, its body and subjectivity. This book focuses on a procedure which Tavares himself claims to make use of, under the influence of Roland Barthes: the procedure of "writing the reading". It consists of trials and errors that sometimes endeavor to imitate the author’s own gesture of writing as an attempt to "write along with" Gonçalo M. Tavares, and sometimes outline the presence of others with whom he shares this this gesture. The essays here comprised seek to measure the intensity of the enstrangement brought on by Tavares’ writing as the cornerstone of a fiction whose telos is to lend some lucidity to the contemporary world while making it spin into absurdity.
