Sometimes I tell my students that we philosophers are necromancers of the dead, as we bring mummified ideas to life so that they may live again. Intone the words of this book, and you will know the secrets passed down from the ancients.... We need this because we are so caught in the sorcery of our own culture that only necromancy might turn our heads around to see from what we have come. Sadly, the article is technical and not mythic--no zombies.
If someone is curious about why I herald the danger of aestheticizing everything, as our times are want to do, I have more than a little to say about it in that article. We limit our imaginal horizon to a particular aesthetic, and then "see" goodness with our eyes rather than our hearts or minds and perhaps can no longer tell the difference.
