Milton, Minas & Geraes: uma cultura de resistência  [cached]
Alberto Carlos de Souza
OPSIS : Revista do Departamento de História e Ciências Sociais , 2010,
Abstract: A study that discusses the places of memory in the works phonograph “Minas” and “Geraes”, Milton Nascimento, launched in 1975 and 1976, respectively, seen by critics of the season as the most representative of the “movement” Clube da Esquina. Such works have engendered an environment in which Brazil was experiencing a time of severe political repression, a situation in which Milton and his partners realize the opportunity in “Minas” sing in, in their roots in the countryside, and “Geraes”, sing out, by incorporating elements of its musicality of Latin America. “Minas” and “Geraes” has the meaning of being “places without gaps” - where there is no “desbunde”, on the contrary, an exposition of resistance within the body, passion, feelings, faith and memory - are unable be touched by a system whose premise was the total lack of sensitivity to the human and universal.
Le Milton de Toland  [cached]
James C. BROWN
E-rea : Revue électronique d’études sur le Monde Anglophone , 2003, DOI: 10.4000/erea.245
Abstract: Alors que l’ uvre de John Milton suscite encore de nombreuses critiques et interprétations, je vous propose un retour en arrière afin d’étudier l’un des premiers écrits biographiques dédié à la vie et à l’ uvre du poète anglais signé par le philosophe irlandais John Toland. Paru en 1698, Life of John Milton dresse un portrait plus complet que ceux que l’on trouve dans les précédentes biographies du poète anglais (Darbishire xxix). Ayant été l’un des premiers biographes de Milton, Toland a pub...
Milton Friedman & the Human Good
Tibor R. Machan
Libertarian Papers , 2009,
Abstract: Milton Friedman is among those who have favored a value free, amoral defense of the free society. Here I discuss his basic reason for doing so, namely, that the claim to moral knowledge implies authoritarian politics. I argue that this is wrong because to act morally cannot require coercing people to do so–to quote Immanuel Kant, “ought” implies “can.”
A Conversation with Milton Hatoum
Marília Librandi-Rocha
Ellipsis , 2011,
Abstract: Acclaimed author Milton Hatoum is originally from a part of the world that has become the center of debates concerning our planetary survival: the Amazon. In this interview—the first extensive interview published in English—he describes how he transforms his experiences of living, traveling, and reading into the written word, and presents a beautiful and specific definition of the reader as a “stationary traveler.” Based on questions sent in by e-mail by scholars from all over Brazil and other parts of the world, Hatoum speaks about several of his novels and describes the differences between documentary-based and experimental literary production. He also talks about some of his favorite authors in contemporary fiction, the theme of Latin American patriarchalism as portrayed through some of his characters, and the presence and importance of artists in his books. He recommends some books from the Amazon, and points out the “numbered days” of the Amazon rainforest and the terrible social neglect in the city of Manaus.The interview was organized by Marília Librandi-Rocha (Stanford University) and Lucia Ricotta (Universidade Estadual do Sudoeste da Bahia), and questions were posed by Stefania Chiarelli (Universidade Federal Fluminense), Luiz Costa Lima (PUC-Rio), John Gledson (University of Liverpool), Marília Librandi-Rocha (Stanford University), Mirella Marcia Longo (Universidade Federal da Bahia), and Susana Scramin (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina).
Milton Friedman on Intolerance: A Critique
Walter E. Block
Libertarian Papers , 2010,
Abstract: Milton Friedman had long declared himself a small “l” libertarian (to distinguish himself from members of the Libertarian Party). But, libertarianism is based on the twin pillars of the non aggression axiom and private property predicated on homesteading and peaceful exchange. Friedman adopts none of this. Instead, he undergirds his philosophy on “tolerance,” which is no part of libertarianism. Thus, his claim to the mantle of libertarianism, big or small “L” it matters not which, is called into question.
Signótica , 2006, DOI: 10.5216/sig.v18i1.3722
Abstract: In John Milton’s Paradise Lost epic and empire are dissociated. Contrary to many misreadings, this all-important work of the English Renaissance intersects postcolonial thinking in a number of ways. By using Gayatri Spivak’s circuit of postcolonial theory and practice, this paper enacts a counterpointal (mis)reading of Milton’s text: Paradise Lost may at last free its (post-)colonial (dis)content. Since every reading is a misreading, my (mis)reading of Milton’s paradise is a mo(ve)ment of resistance against and intervention in a so-called grand narrative of power (Milton’s epic) with a view to proposing a postcolonial conversation with this text.
The Tuscan Artist - Images of Galileo in Milton’s works
Toscano Fabio
JCOM : Journal of Science Communication , 2004,
Abstract: In The Areopagitica, his most important work of prose, John Milton mentions Galileo as the illustrious martyr who fought for the freedom of thought. The name of the great scientist is repeated several times in the English poet’s epic masterpiece: Paradise Lost. In three different passages of the poem, Milton in fact celebrates the “Tuscan Artist” and his crucial achievements in astronomy. Nevertheless, in a subsequent passage, the poet addresses the Copernican issue without openly defending the heliocentric theory confirmed by Galileo’s discoveries. In fact, he neither embraces the Copernican system nor the Ptolemaic one, but instead compares them, following a dialectic method where one cannot fail to notice an echo of Galileo’s Dialogue Concerning the two Chief World Systems. Milton’s literary work presents images of astronomy at that time, thus offering a valuable historical example of scientific communication through art.
Savater y la actitud llamada ensayar  [cached]
Carlos Pereda
Araucaria , 2007,
Abstract: El presente artículo intenta poner de relieve que la actitud llamada ensayar, ejercida con suma valentía y originalidad por Fernando Savater, es una actitud antidogmática y abierta que incomoda a todo sectario, intelectual o político, lo que ha constre ido a Savater a convertirse en un gran polemista al tiempo que, a nivel personal, le ha granjeado desagradables y hasta peligrosas consecuencias.
Areopagitica: Milton’s Influence on Classical and Modern Political and Economic Thought
Isaac M. Morehouse
Libertarian Papers , 2009,
Abstract: This article draws general economic arguments against central planning, state licensure and regulation from Milton’s Areopagitica, a 17th Century pamphlet on free-speech. Though Milton’s work was written primarily as a defense for moral man and a warning against religious encroachment by government it provides some of the best and most foundational general arguments, both moral and practical, against government intervention in any field. Milton’s accessible and persuasive style and his ability to combine practical and moral arguments made his work a monumental case against censorship. However, the work has more to offer than a defense of free-speech. Libertarian economists can find in Milton many compelling arguments against central planning, licensure and regulation which have been and should continue to be reiterated.
