William Blake

JERUSALEM (from ‘Milton’)

by: William Blake (1757-1827)

AND did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
 
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic Mills?
 
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
 
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.
Mary Shelley ‘Frankenstein’

Letters on Landscape Painting

“the humblest scenes of your successful labors will become hallowed ground to which, in memory at least, you will make many a joyous pilgrimage, and, like Rousseau, in the fullness of your emotions, kiss the very earth that bore the print of your oft-repeated footsteps”

Part One Chapter 3

“Nothing is more sublime than mighty power and strength. A stream that runs within its banks is a beautiful object; but when it rushes down with the impetuosity and noise of a torrent, it becomes a sublime one.”
Part One Chapter 3

Tuckerman on Heart of the Andes

“Seldom has a more grand effect of light been depicted than the magnificent sunshine on the mountains of a tropical clime, from his radiant pencil. It literally floods the canvas with celestial fire, and beams with glory like a sublime psalm of light.”
Part Two Chapter 4

“The Trinity of God, Man and Nature was central to the nineteenth-century universe. Nature itself was illuminated by another trinity: art, science, and religion.”

Readings in the Philosophy of Technology

1 Giant Leap ‘Racing Away’

TV is enough
It is providing artificial friends and relatives for lonely people
What it is is recurrent families
The same friends and relatives come back
Week after week after week after week
And they’re wittier and they’re better looking and they’re much more interesting and they’re richer
Than your real friends and relatives

‘Readings in the Philosophy of Technology’
David Kaplan

Page 36

‘We may distinguish both true and false needs. “False” are those which are superimposed upon the individual by particular social interests in his repression: the needs which perpetuate toil, agressiveness, misery, and injustice. Their satisfaction might be most gratifying to the individual, but this happiness is not a condition which has to be maintained and protected if it serves to arrest the development of the ability (his own and others) to recognize the disease of the whole and grasp the chances of curing the disease. The result then is euphoria in unhappiness. Most of the prevailing needs to relax, to have fun, to behave and consume in accordance with the advertisements, to love and hate what others love and hate, belong to this category of false needs.’
Longinus: “On the Sublime”

Longinus, writing in the classical historical tradition says that the sublime implies that man can, in emotions and in language, transcend the limits of the human condition.
