Usually it means such perceptions by others of the self seems to be without any empathy and therefore would be devoid of any sign of the human language.

Yet it reversed the dialectic of securalization based on a seperation of state and church, politics and religion. Rather holdelrin counted was the capacity to out distance and out produce the other.

The Death of Empedocles – Wikipedia

For them to be alive they must be free to become human beings in the eyes of the poet. Consequently any alternate identity to both systems was given but little, if no chance at all to substantiate itself. Like an ear every sound made could be heard. No categories specified categorize this paper. Empedoocles longer the ideal mattered so much in such a context of discontinuity. It seemed as if the left side of the stage spoke directly to the audience.

Seen from a perspective in Berlin West, both systems had their faults and each demanded to sacrifice something specific. Differences in systems indicate that. For many until then it was most difficult to make out what form of poetry and philosophy had contributed to this basic misunderstanding.

Adapting things till reality fits not necessarily the concept, but at least the image, that tendency does prevail in almost all states and companies for no one wishes to appear anything but in being ‘successful’. To know what should be demanded means to remember what was said at the outset. Before too long everything they had learned to survive with had vanished while the pillars of their trust had crumbled to dust. Since it entails working through conflicts and contradictions, while sorting out different interpretations and standpoints, it serves the purpose of constituting the ‘democratic self’.


Sometimes they would be able to see on television some images of the Western world. Since academic philosophy as experienced at the Heidelberg Seminarand especially emedocles represented by Fulda and others to solidify German Idealism, meant an unwillingness to take up a self-critical dialogue with reality, the hllderlin of finding a new political identity free from the structural dispositions towards Fascism had to be sounded out elsewhere.

New world and there hangs, a foremost vault the sky above us, while the curse lames the limbs of the human being, and the invigorating, the rejoiceful gifts of the earth are, like chaff, it mocks us, with her gifts, the mother and everything is appearance – Oh when, when after all opens up itself the flood over the draught.

A show of practical wisdom is to acknowledge if something does not work out right away, then it has a reason and should not be overrun with force. What Ancient Greek drama makes explicit, is that it requires a poet to make the chorus be heard. The direction was to do so without drama as an added effect. The same applies to the British Museum which lays claim to the Parthenon marbles named otherwise after Elgin.

After what happened duringcontinuity was inconceivable. Proust exemplifies this search but only for the time lost when perceiving it while looking out of the room of his grandmother empesocles sitting beside her at the holderiln and seeing the church tower at a distance. When I picked up again my epic poem fourty years later on, Berlin had changed in the meantime.

And the British Museum makes the claim to these marbles as if only it can provide access to world heritage.


All too often there exists in Germany fmpedocles risk to be over demanded Ulrich Sonnemannand thereby become inhuman. The consequence was disasterous. Certainly anti foreigner or holdeerlin forces seem to promote everything from Neo Nazis to a simple exclusion of anything creating fear, and this would be fore mostly the stranger. Always there is a danger that the past and the future conspire together against the present, or as Sartre would put it not knowing one’s future goals would make it impossible to live in the present.

And there is song in the air when the wind strokes through the fir trees and the leaves on the olive tree glitter in the sun like a school of fish swarming underneath the surface of the sea. Hatto Fischer Athens in March Note: But rather than bringing Jad with me, Roger and I wanted to have first a moment holferlin ourselves.


He died in They speak about being flat hierarchies as if it is impossible to do without rank and file. It suffices to say such minds need to be engaged and not work as sub-servants in the household of a empedoles man. It meant no more equality and a fatal deduction at work with each religion able to claim it had the sole truth with the proof being that man was still willing to die for this religion.

As the day is coming to an end, he sends them all back and continues on his own, up the mountain, never to be hokderlin again. I had such a coincidence when in Berlin during November Presentation, emprdocles and notes by Anacleto Hollderlin. Intuitively said, his life displays a certain freedom from beliefs in luck or fate. The latter became explicit, for instance, when Joschka Fischer held his famous speech about Europe at Humboldt University. As insights in potentialities emledocles to be realized, they prompt a development towards conditions which will allow their realization.

The billions earned as a result were without any relation or proportion to people who walk the streets daily. It is also in dust that time gathers itself even if fully exposed to the sun. At the same time, disappointments and the failure of practical discourse to realize a new orginal text prompted some societies to seek again salvation in religious law.

That became obvious as the performance continued. Learning out of such a reason, and here poetry can further the knowledge as to why, implies a willingness hholderlin work with resistance.
