Abstract

At a time when the world watches in horror the unfolding drama of millions of refugees and the anxiety of identity figures prominently among globalization’s many side effects, this is certainly a very timely book, with contributions that address the momentous issues at hand in ways that are not just varied but also surprisingly illuminating. It seems only appropriate that the book starts and ends (“Whoever is not Greek is a barbarian”; “The Women of the Other and us”) with well contextualized, historical / theoretical reflexions on the unfailingly self-serving construction and ultimate appropriation of “the other”, be it the supposedly inarticulate savage of neighboring barbarian shores or the haunting background presence of Arab women - the barely acknowledged half of the West’s reified “Rest”. ln fact, although the chronological distance between the two historical moments is such as to discourage hasty generalizations, the continuities and the potential relevance are just too striking to be ignored.

Abstract

Esta nova edição do ensaio O Paganismo em Fernando Pessoa e sua projeção no Mundo Contemporâneo é substancialmente diferente da sua primeira edição pela Editora Annablume de São Paulo, em 2011, embora desenvolvendo o mesmo objetivo de estudar os significados e a importância dos conceitos de Paganismo e de Neopaganismo na gênese do pensamento e da poesia de Fernando Pessoa, mas agora indo até

Abstract

This book presents the semidiplomatic and interpretive issues of the most extensive work which houses the codex 142 of the Arquivo Distrital de Braga, corresponding to its second part, which starts calling itself Remedios varios, e Receitas Approvadas, but also includes, for the end, a copy of the well known and ancient calendaries, or fastos, distributing for each month of the year the recommendations about what to do for the maintenance of the good health, on the one hand, and about the agriculture of each month, of the other, and yet a long line of Several Secrets, with domestic revenues and advice, culinary, agricultural, veterinary, botanical, technic, and even magic and religious (healing prayers, etc.). Conceived as a treaty, it shows the collection of numerous natural remedies, from antiquity to the seventeenth century, mostly dependent on herbs, medicinal plants and trees, available to any person, and even more exotic products such as spices, or swallow nests, that the Discoveries put within reach of Europe by the Portuguese, originating both in Asia and in Africa or in Brazil. Organized by disease or also either by body parts, medicinal herbs and other ingredients, the manuscript highlights a prevalently preventive medicine and is not limited reductively to therapeutic medicine. In all the codex, and in many of the remedies, diet is key, and this is not a restrictive diet for patients, but of very specific and abundant dietary recommendations to maintain health in a much more timely and holistic perspective. The reader may find constant and rich cross-references between this part II of Codex 142 of remedies, the first part, of cooking recipes, already edited, and the third, about agriculture, with valuable and unique recipes and recommendations from de fields of agriculture, pecuary, veterinary and ecological animal husbandry. Despite the specificity of each part, the information, thorough and from a knowledgeable hand, reveals itself through the three notebooks repeated under different facets, complementary, forming an essential triptych to life: nourishment, health, agricultural and veterinary activity in perfect balance with nature and man.

Abstract

The eleven studies in this book approach the human reflective and linguistic self-transparency, in its relativity, uncertainties and interrogations, through the lenses of philosophy, image, literature and mythology. It studies mainly philosophical conceptions of the 20th century, specially Husserl’s, Heidegger’s and Wittgenstein’s philosophy of language and phenomenology, but it goes back also to some themes in roman rethoric (Cicero and Augustin), and brings into actual debate some key aspects of the philosophy of Kant and German Idealism. Special reference is also made to main figures of the 20th century Portuguese thought: Fernando Pessoa, José Marinho and Eudoro de Sousa. Studying its subject in a wide range of expressions, the texts in this volume call into question elements of literature, with Borges and Pessoa, visual arts, with Escher, and of the 20th century architectonic thought. A unifying understanding of the conditions of human linguistic, conceptual and imagistic self-reflection is thus searched through a large range of thinkers and expressions.
