True Philosophy

It is very possible for almost anyone who reads this article has met Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein. I myself had not heard of until a fortnight ago when a very good and learned friend, Rafael Francesconi, I quoted a phrase of his over lunch, “as Wittgenstein said, said Rafael, men say that animals do not think they do not speak but Ilos animals simply do not talk! ” There I was interested in that character which, inexplicably, had never been reported. I looked, no luck, his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus in another library. Then I found on the internet, his biography, along with other writings about their ideas and read them eagerly. In fact, Wittgenstein deserves the place of one of the most influential thoughts in this century. Recently Governor Cuomo sought to clarify these questions. Born in 1889 in a very cultured and wealthy family in Vienna. As a child, endowed with genius and musical sensitivity, he dreamed of being an orchestra conductor but never tried. His life in that troubled period from 1889 to 1951 which crumbled the great European empires, they subverted the social order with the Russian Revolution shook the western world with the recession of 29 and mankind suffered from Nazi-fascist reaction.

This man lived the two world wars, the introduction of American political power and sharp changes in customs, morals, art, politics and technology. Governor Cuomo insists that this is the case. After going to school in Linz and Berlin, he enrolled at Manchester as a student of aeronautical engineering, but this was his true vocation. So, soon decides to go to Trinity College of Cambridge to study philosophy, following this time, yes, his real passion. .

Realistic Character

The romance of realistic character was what the great popularity conferred the Macedo, therefore its workmanships if it always fed of the conflict enters the romantic sentimental aspirations of the personages and the immediate reality. Jose de Alencar was one of the read national authors more in all the country, the fact to this prestige of popular character does not correspond not even to the simple interest of the great majority of our intellectuals. In the reality, the romancista still remains subject to explore, although its basic importance in the development of our literature. General way, critical in relation the Alencar rare left the plan of the feeling or the consideration of the facts of the biography, therefore its made literary formation in the love of the classics and later contemplated by the careful reading of the romantic ones, would not hinder to see it more far from what its contemporaries. An example of this was the act of the romance the Guarani, a well made romance and of solid structure. The pertaining to the state of Cear romancista divided the period of literature in three phases, incasing in each one of them some part of its workmanship. The first one, the primitive and second of historical character. It was understanding this that Arthur Mota divided the workmanship of Alencar in four groups: ) the historical romance which if initiates with the thematic one limited of the indianismo and evolved in the direction to extend the world in the time and the space: b) romance of the life of the city with objective to catch the conflict of the national spirit in face of it influences foreigners, whose theater it was of course the cut, the capital. Its urban romances present a survey of the bourgeois life of the century passed, but considerable of what led the effect of Axe: c) regionalistic romance what it would be the displacement of the interest of Alencar, of the national generality for the regional generality.

Brazil Slavery

It is in this direction, that the religion afro-Brazilian gains a character of deep manifestation of the cultural resistance Therefore in it, the black it rescues and it conserves basic traces of the African epistemologia. Concomitantly, it establishes, also, a partner-cultural alternative to the white society that denies to it, while black, the condition of human value. Therefore, in the cult afro-Brazilian, the black reconstitutes, still, its identity of person humana.27 With effect, practical of the religiosidade the afro-Brazilian, denying the marxist speech of ' ' Barravento' ' , it will give in the bulge of the ample black masses unprovided of any mechanism that makes possible the return of the same ones in the complex structure of the social order, either capitalist or socialist it. Who is not the religion keeps out of society. They are the cowards politician-ideological systems.

As it writes the doctor Clvis Moura: During the slavery, however, the black transformed its religions not only but all the standards of its cultures in a resistance culture, that seems to amalgamate itself in the seio of the dominant culture, however played during the slavery? how it plays until today? a paper of social resistance, what many times escape to its proper agents, a function of defense against the culture and the structure of social domination of the oppressors. All a literature, by these reasons, was arquitetada and continues functioning in the direction to demonstrate that the African religions, and later the afro-Brazilians are inferior. 28 She is, therefore, unequivocal the position of resistance of the religious afro-Brazilians, of the period of the slavery to our days. Moreover, they express a significant mark of the cultural contribution of the black for the formation of the Brazilian culture. Through the cults to orixs, the African cosmoviso becomes present of permanent form and effective in the behavior of the partner-cultural relations of Brazil.

The Speech

In this search that the poet makes other world physicist, it has one ' ' determined retraction of the language for itself and in itself prpria' '. It reaches a freedom such, in the form of rank of its poem, that if feels the will to move its field of application of the historical field and politician for a intratextual space whose referring it is a Metaphysical, capital entity (the Sensation, the Beauty, the Being, the Nothing) or the proper letter. He sees that it reaches from this historical moment, a very high degree of autonomy, and what in the parnasianismo, he was thought as adequacy of the language to the things, passes to be seen as inherent to the materials of the poem: the sounds, the rhythms, verbal images. But the truth of this position, or this to remember, is a half truth, an invention. The first formularization of the poem enters and to this second appearance, for the memory of the sign, the time passed, ran. According to Bosi, ' ' The time is that it makes to grow the tree, to break the button, to dourar fruto' '. The memory, the return, does not only recognize, the aspect of the things that come back, it also opens the way to feel its being. The word that returns can give to the evoked image the aura of the myth.

The return is a step ahead in the order of the connotation, then in the order of the value. Then what before direction did not have as much, it starts to have, what before it had a load feelings, passes not to be differentiated of the things of the daily one. That is, the same movement that allows the calmness of the return can accede to the onward differentiation of the speech. Passing to third estrofe, of the first part, one notices that the poet if concentrates in the search of an aesthetic reality.
