The Question of Legality (1950)

3,544 words

Translated by Simona Draghici

The Reverend Oratorian Father Laberthonnière, who died in 1932, left behind the voluminous work of a lifetime, which is being edited by his friend Louis Canet. Between 1933 and 1948, six impressive volumes were published.

The Metaphysics of Death

4,440 words

“Only the dead can know what it means to be dead.”—Ananda Coomaraswamy[1]

Philip Larkin’s poem “Aubade” articulates his fear of death in chilling terms. It describes a man who hates his job and gets drunk every night. Then, before dawn, he wakes, and with the gathering light, he fixates on the certainty of his own death and what it will mean for him. Larkin is clear that it means complete cessation of the self, that there is no possibility of an afterlife, and that this absence of the self is the most terrifying thing in the world. Read more …
