On the Sublime & the Numinous

Caspar_David_Friedrich_0714,193 words

The words “sublime” and “numinous” have shifted in meaning somewhat over recent years. The word “sublime,” I presume, would now generally be interpreted to mean something of particularly great beauty, or an action particularly well executed. It would not be limited to a narrow usage but could be applied to any thing or action of particular excellence, perhaps with a slightly pretentious connotation of elegance.  Read more …

Kraft durch Freude

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

2,320 words

Übersetzt von Deep Roots

English original here

Als ich jünger war, hatte ich, wenn ich niedergeschlagen war, immer spontane kleine Erlebnisse, die mich sofort aufbauten. Ich hörte ein Lied im Radio. Ich schaute über ein Feld, als plötzlich die Sonne hinter den Wolken hervorkam. Ich spähte über jemandes Zaun und sah eine Rose blühen.

The Yogi & the Commissar

722 words

Translated by M. P.

Arthur Koestler, the author of Le zéro et l’infini (in English, Darkness at Noon), once played an important role in the Spanish Civil War as an agent of the Comintern.
