Download El ardor (Panorama de narrativas) (Spanish Edition) by Roberto Calasso PDF

By Roberto Calasso

Hace cerca de tres mil años, en el norte de los angeles India, floreció una civilización de una extraordinaria riqueza, que sin embargo no dejó reliquias arquitectónicas ni artísticas. Y es que su fortuna no se basó en las conquistas ni en los angeles acumulación de tesoros sino en l. a. insuperada sofisticación de una serie de textos en torno al Veda (el saber). Textos que, en su mayor parte, son minuciosas prescripciones para ejecutar los ritos, desde el más sencillo hasta el más complejo: el sacrificio. Calasso, que ya se dedicó a l. a. religión de los angeles India antigua en un libro memorable, Ka, vuelve ahora sobre ella para centrarse precisamente en los angeles cuestión del sacrificio. ¿Qué es? ¿En qué consistía? ¿Cuál es los angeles diferencia entre los angeles mera violencia ejercida sobre un ser y l. a. esencia del sacrificio? ¿Qué valor le damos hoy a ese concepto?

Con el magnetismo propio de una poderosa novela, el recorrido de Calasso en El ardor habla, también, de nuestra cultura: de lo que significa el progresivo abandono de las formas del rito, de nuestra dificultad ya casi insuperable para establecer un intercambio con lo invisible, y las distorsiones que ello causa en los angeles historia y l. a. sensibilidad presentes; del rito como forma de comunicación entre lo obvious y lo invisible y de todo lo que l. a. mentalidad positivista nos ha ocultado, haciendo que confundamos nuestra incapacidad para percibirlo con su inexistencia. «La actitud sacrificial ?escribe Calasso? implica que los angeles naturaleza tenga un sentido, mientras que l. a. actitud científica nos ofrece los angeles pura descripción de los angeles naturaleza, de por sí desprovista de sentido.» Por eso, «el Satapatha Brahmana es un antídoto poderoso para l. a. existencia actual».

Calasso es una figura única en el landscape intelectual de hoy: sin arroparse en jergas académicas, y poniendo en relación saberes tan complejos como l. a. historia de las culturas y las religiones, los angeles antropología moderna y los grandes debates del pensamiento de todos los tiempos, es capaz de desplegar ante el lector l. a. esencia de aquellos libros legendarios y mostrar el modo en que aún tienen mucho que decirnos. El ardor que da título a este libro es el que se enciende en l. a. lectura, no sólo como un aprendizaje sino también como una intensa experiencia del espíritu y de l. a. inteligencia.

C’est d’ailleurs cette pratique, ininterrompue pendant quatre-vingts ans de sa vie, qui est le fondement à partir duquel Iyengar a réévalué son travail précédent sur les sūtra et réétudié l’œuvre de Pātañjali.

« Nous avons besoin d’un bon cœur, d’un psychological discipliné et d’un corps en bonne santé. Nous ne nous transformerons pas simplement en faisant des vœux pieux, mais en travaillant dur pendant longtemps. los angeles vitalité de B. ok. S. Iyengar à ninety three ans et son angle envers ses élèves sont une resource d’inspiration pour tous. »
