The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

What I'm reading now

































What is Ancient Philosophy? by Pierre Hadot: a fascinating book that contrasts ancient philosophical traditions with contemporary academic philosophy. Philosophy for Hadot starts as a choice of a particular way of life, and is less dogmatic and more dialectical in the Platonic sense. Philosophy's main aim is thus the search for hapiness. As I have said, learning now oftentimes has more to do with power than with truth. Real learning is not a search for knowledge that is useful for some other aim, but that which rather leads to true hapiness intrinsic in contemplation. Get it here:


La Muerte de Artemio Cruz by Carlos Fuentes: On the rise and fall of a Mexican revolutionary turned plutocrat. Written in a rather Joycean style going in and out of stream of consciousness, especially in the episodes where the protagonist is portrayed on his death bed. An interesting read nonetheless.

I've installed Samsung Universal vehicle driver. And now my ml-1210 does not operate and gain 8 limiting me from changing its driver to ml-2250, stating that present (not operating) vehicle driver is the better one. How did you handled this?

It's genuinely very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I only
use internet for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date news.
