Bruno Bettelheim, “Freud and Man’s Soul” – Rethink.

I could say more about the book, but for those of you who also grapple with the question of the character of political philosophy, you can see how psychoanalysis, or something like it, begins to open a most necessary inquiry. Something about way political philosophy inspired by Leo Strauss is conducted nowadays stays deliberately blind to the educative process. It’s strange how one can detail a number of techniques used by the greatest authors, gain a number of insights, and have nothing to say about who people actually are.

Charles Bukowski – La fin (Finish, 1969) | BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD

nous sommes comme des roses qui ne se sont jamais souciées
d’éclore quand nous aurions dû éclore et
c’est comme si
le soleil avait fini par être écoeuré
d’attendre
c’est comme si le soleil était un esprit qui
avait désespéré de nous.

*

we are like roses that have never bothered to
bloom when we should have bloomed and
it is as if
the sun has become disgusted with
waiting
it is as if the sun were a mind that has
given up on us.
