Picasso - Sir Kenneth Clark at the Tate Exhibition of "one of the most incomprehnsible artists-" his words. Sir Ken openly admits he is one who doesn't always understand either but he makes a good stab at enthusing us, yet though his critical erudition is to be admired, for me Picasso cannot be labelled "an entertainer," as Ken says, since "when he is being funny" I never laughed once. But Picasso's "added power by abstraction" can at least now be admired, thanks to honest Ken. The Dream Machine transmitted Wednesday 11th November at 9.
Life and Works a. Thomas Aquinas was born sometime between and in Roccasecca, Italy, near Naples. One of nine children, Thomas was the youngest of four boys, and, given the customs of the time, his parents considered him destined for a religious vocation.
In his early years, from approximately 5 to 15 years of age, Thomas lived and served at the nearby Benedictine abbey of Monte Cassino, founded by St. Benedict of Nursia himself in the 6th century.
It is here that Thomas received his early education. Thomas began his theological studies at the University of Naples in the fall of In the 13th century, training in theology at the medieval university started with additional study of the seven liberal arts, namely, the three subjects of the trivium grammar, logic, and rhetoric and the four subjects of the quadrivium arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomyas well study in philosophy.
As part of his philosophical studies at Naples, Thomas was reading in translation the newly discovered writings of Aristotleperhaps introduced to him by Peter of Ireland.
By contrast, Arab philosophers such as Ibn Sina or Avicenna c. Philosophers such as Peter of Ireland had not seen anything like these Aristotelian works before; they were capacious and methodical but never strayed far from common sense.
However, there was controversy too, since Aristotle seemed to teach things that contradicted the Christian faith, most notably that God was not provident over human affairs, that the universe had always existed, and that the human soul was mortal.
It was in the midst of his university studies at Naples that Thomas was stirred to join a new and not altogether uncontroversial religious order known as the Order of Preachers or the Dominicans, after their founder, St. Dominic de Guzman c.
Back at the family compound, Thomas continued in his resolve to remain with the Dominicans. A famous story has it that one day his family members sent a prostitute up to the room where Thomas was being held prisoner.
Instead, Thomas supposedly chased the prostitute out of the room with a hot poker, and as the door slammed shut behind her, traced a black cross on the door.
Recognizing his talent early on, the Dominican authorities sent Thomas to study with St. Albert the Great at the University of Paris for three years, from Thomas made such an impression on Albert that, having been transferred to the University of Cologne, Albert took Thomas along with him as his personal assistant.
At 32 years of ageThomas was teaching at the University of Paris as a Master of Theology, the medieval equivalent of a university professorship.
After teaching at Paris for three years, the Dominicans moved Thomas back to Italy, where he taught in Naples fromOrviettoand Rome It was during this period, perhaps in Rome, that Thomas began work on his magisterial Summa theologiae.
Thomas was ordered by his superiors to return to the University of Paris inperhaps to defend the mendicant way of life of the Dominicans and their presence at the university.We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. § Implementation of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Social Studies, High School, Beginning with School Year The provisions of §§ of this subchapter shall be implemented by school districts beginning with the school year.
