I have started with the new year a kind of mirror of this blog in French, a long overdue return to my native language. I hope some readers of in other words will be fluent enough in French to also make sense and hopefully enjoy those choses autrement dites. The first posts are listed and linked below, with a short abstract.
- Toute chose commence par un trait on Shitao, the unity of painting, calligraphy and poetry in classical Chinese culture, and how the continuum of nature is divided into things by the single brushstroke.
- Cosmographie en orange et bleu a "just so story" about the separation of heavens and earth as seen and described by the first ontologist in the first days, and what happened to him on the seventh day.
- L'ontologiste sur le rivage des choses on the illusion of so-called ontologies (in the modern sense of the term) thinking they have said what things are, when they only define how things differ from each other.
To be continued ... stay tuned!
