Dr. Faustus (eBook, ePUB)

One of the most durable myths in Western culture, the story of Faust tells of a learned German doctor who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge and power. Early enactments of Faust's damnation were often the raffish fare of clowns and low comedians. But the young Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) recognized in the story of Faust's temptation and fall the elements of tragedy.In his epic treatment of the Faust legend, Marlowe retains much of the rich phantasmagoria of its origins. There are florid visions of an enraged Lucifer, dueling angels, the Seven Deadly Sins, Faustus tormenting the Pope, and his summoning of the spirit of Alexander the Great. But the playwright created equally powerful scenes that invest the work with tragic dignity, among them the doomed man's calling upon Christ to save him and his ultimate rejection of salvation for the embrace of Helen of Troy.With immense poetic skill, and psychological insight that foreshadowed the later work of Shakespeare and the Jacobean playwrights, Marlowe created in Dr. Faustus one of the first true tragedies in English. Vividly dramatic, rich in poetic grandeur, this classic play remains a robust and lively exemplar of the glories of Elizabethan drama.

Perhaps the history we seek begins in Uruk, a settlement on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates, 225km from modern Baghdad. Uruk, which may be the origin of the modern country-name Irak, was at its height in the 3rd millennium BCE and is important to this history because there was a temple there (Cassin et al, 1982: 42), that is to say, a place of meeting for the human community, an incipient vestige of a great civilization: the Chaldean and the Babylonian. This city is described at the beginning of one of the oldest jewels of literature: the epic poem of Gilgamesh, who was at one time King of Uruk. As we will see, this relic of Mesopotamian culture would be mentioned by John Bennett, one of Gurdjieff's disciples. The ancient world, in which the wisdom of the Enneagram was forged, was not divided into nation states, nor were the frontiers between countries those that we know today. Knowledge flowed, sooner or later, between those truly interested in the fundamental questions of human beings and of the world. In spite of the -for us- precarious modes of transport, in the centuries before the common era there was a great exchange of information and practices between those who sought to further the development of the mind and the potential of men and women. The categorical division between East and West clouds our perception of reciprocal influences in ancient times. There is evidence of contact, for example, between the Chinese and the area where we are going to focus a great deal of our attention: Turkestan. An outstanding scholar of Taoism, doctor of philosophy and translator of the Tao Te Ching into Spanish, Iñaki Preciado writes 'Towards the end of the 3rd Millennium BCE, as a result of the Huaxia expansion, some tribes that had until then lived on the plains of central China, were expelled and had to move to the lands of present day Turkestan… According to another version, a chief of the Zhou tribes sent one of his advisors to the region of the Pamir where he founded a kingdom' (Lao Tsé [Preciado], 2012: 45). Both accounts refer to areas in which Gurdjieff travelled before he founded his school; at the same time they are an example of how relative historical statements can be. There are also similarities - though not necessarily through direct contact - between Greek and Chinese writings in the 5th century BCE: '… there are no fundamental differences in Eastern and Greek thought during the Pre-socratic period. It is from Plato and Aristoteles onwards, and more specifically from Euclides and Archimedes, that Greek thought takes a new turn which becomes decisive for the Western world' (García, 2000: 188). In antiquity knowledge had a locatable origin, but as it developed the different authors' tracks become blurred as cultures, learning and behavior blend. Unless defending a specific cause, religion, ethnicity or sect, those who seek the roots of the Enneagram must agree that the confluence of different forms of knowledge has given us all we know today. The last 25 centuries of humanity present a history of mixtures, fusions and coincidences of discovery in one place or other. It is also a record of hostilities, comparisons of different approaches, of battles to gain leadership for a chief or an author.

Dynamic Consultation
144,90 CHF *

This book introduces a unique model of medical discourse that identifies the forms of talk - voices - that doctors and patients use during the consultation, and studies the dynamic interaction as it unfolds particularly in follow-up visits. Natural recordings, semi-structured interviews, questionnaires and ethnographic observations provide the data for the research, which was carried out in an Outpatient Clinic in Santiago, Chile. Using an interactional sociolinguistic approach, analysis of the data identifies doctor-patient communication as a micro-performance of broader socio-cultural realities, in which social status, power, knowledge and personal beliefs and values all find expression in the consultative setting. Importantly, while both doctor and patient voices are shown to contribute to an essentially asymmetrical exchange, the study also identifies the holistic and empathic Fellow Human voice, which places doctors and patients on a more equal footing. In connection with this voice, the Spanish concept of simpatia is also discussed.While the model in this study was developed within a specific socio-cultural framework, it is hoped that it will be adapted and modified more widely and contribute to a better understanding between doctors and their patients.
