Coleridge's Early Empiricism

By: Jeffrey Side

This study examines the influence of empiricism on Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poetry up until 1800, at which time he deserted it for transcendentalism. This is not to suggest that he was completely an empiricist before 1800, but that his empiricism was somewhat tempered by transcendentalist influences. Therefore, the relationship between “empiricism” and “transcendentalism” in his thinking with regard to poetic composition is problematical. Coleridge became a...

Ten short stories about contemporary subjects like emmigration, abandoned villages, unemployment, lost of traditional values, poverty.

Вечна и бляскава „Животът стоеше пред мен като вечна пролет в нови и бляскави дрехи.“ К.Г.Гаус Планината – тя беше вечна и бляскава. Стоеше пред нас цяла Чернатица. Пролетта я правеше да блести още повече и я връщаше отново към вечността. Така и животът ни пое по частица и от двете. Много частици сигурно бе поело и селцето в ниското през столетията. И сега къщите му блестяха в чисто бяло. Пролетта сякаш и тях бе подновила. Затова забързахме надолу, по-скоро да сти...

Shodasi : Secrets of the Ramayana

By: Seshendra Sharma

* * * Valmiki Ramayana – Greatest Medicine for Mankind The story of Ramayana is prescribed as textbook for students. Sita and Rama are worshiped as prime couple. No need to mention about reciting it. Whether Valmiki was satisfied with simple narration of the story? Seshendra Sharma denies it. He analyzed it mentioning that to understand the inner meanings of Valmiki Ramayana, the scientific knowledge is essential. The underlying secret of the sage’s mind will...

Sri Sundara Kanda is nothing but Kundalini yoga Many great secrets that are most venerable are given in Srimad Ramayana. Therefore, it became a sacred text which is daily read as a ritual. It would not have been elevated to such level if it were only a narration of a story. We do not read Manu Charitra* daily as a ritual. We do not consider that book as a means of achieving salvation. That is the difference between these two books. The great secrets in Ramayana a...

El Retorno a la Vida : Unos poemas malos de amor, tres fabulas ace...

By: Valentino

En «no entiende ce´l joven», la contracción «ce´l» se origina de«ce el» ( ce, conjunción completiva; el, artículo determinante). Y en «la´descubierto» esta procede de «la ha descubierto» ( la , artículo determi-nante; ha , verbo auxiliar del verbo principal conjugado en participio descubrir = ha descubierto ), que escrito en grafía moderna sería «la adescubierto». Entonces lo que vemos aquí es la contracción del verboauxiliar «a» (ha) en la figura del apóstr...

Driving through the low plains which led out of Denver, Colorado I noticed a certain change in the scenery. It was obvious that the snow here would fall and melt almost instantly or remain in slush like state, while the city blanketed by it would remain white until the winter spell broke. It was the New Year week of 2014, and the entire state was celebrating the legalization of Marijuana for recreational purposes. There had been a special New Years celebration put on by ...

Endowed with the personality that always remains inclined towards the truest secularism, I cannot afford to prefer one religion over the other. Therefore, it is not a difficult task for me to interact with a person of any faith. I cannot skip from my tract of `humanity before religion`. Being a firm believer in the existence of a `Supreme Power`, denoted by a variety of nomenclatures, I can adjust with followers of any mainstream of faiths. Even an atheist or an agnost...
