*******Squaring the Circle of Our Rad Trad Catholic Girardian Conserberalism******* all 4 1 & 1 4 all
Ath, Really thought provoking. I was never brought up with art and therefore I had understanding for any connection between art and truth. I was fortunate to have had some introduction to limited number of literary classics which stirred my soul.Alice Ramos brings up some major issues that strike home. Her interview would make a great high school and or college course outline. I found myself sensing a bit of MT throughout her interview.Just look at the richness of this quote from a Girardian perspective:"At times the images may have the appearance of the beautiful, but it is a deceptive and false beauty which simply arouses the desire for possession and closes the person in on him or herself. The constant bombardment of such images silences the voice of conscience, such that persons are no longer able to detect the divine and moral element in themselves; they thus become forgetful of their true identity."Thank you for this post.
This interview speaks volumes about our struggle even with this current election. Like in art, as Ramos explains, Truth has been effectively separated from all aspects of life and issues.
My notes from the October '07 Emmaus Road Initiative session in DC carry a great assortment of Bailie's comments on Truth, Beauty, and Goodness as referentials:Yeats - "Michaelangelo left the proof on the Cistine Chapel roof."Vs.Ricoeur's masters of suspicion, Marx, Freud, and Nietzsche: "Truth is ugly."Check it out! Cheers
