Balinese Character: A Photographic Analysis

By way of advantage of its specific approach to presentation, this pretty and distinguished
book, commemorating the a hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the founding of the recent York Academy
of Sciences, is either a source-book and a succinct interpretation of the tradition of Bali.
It offers over seven-hundred candid images chosen from 25,000 Leica negatives, in a
highly geared up and built-in representation of convinced significant good points of Balinese life.
These are followed via explanatory reviews, sometimes through excerpts from notes
made parallel to the taking of the photographs, and via interpretative summaries pointing
out the relationships among images grouped jointly. The checklist of “visual and
kinaesthetic studying” illustrates the original contribution of the photographic document
at its most sensible. right here the empathy-stimulating caliber of the images, their brilliant detail
and beneficiant sequences, hold the reader right into a concrete adventure of training-inthe-culture
which verbal fabric couldn't provide. The two hundred pages of plates and commentary
are preceded through an essay on Balinese personality via Mead, in descriptive and interpretative
form. This end-result of remark, association, and research is thus
brought into relation to the pictures.

Example text

Translation in Burley 1988, p. 381. 52 Walter Burley's Theory of Obligations If it is irrelevant, it must be responded to on the basis of its own quality; and this [means] on the basis of the quality it has relative to us. For example, if it is true [and] known to be true, it should be granted. If it is false [and] known to be false, it should be denied. If it is uncertain, one should respond by saying that one is in doubt. Since irrelevant sentences cannot be evaluated by the previous rules, by the principle of keeping consistent, they are evaluated according to their actual truth value as far as it is known - this is the quality Burley has in mind.

Characteristically, it is imagined to determine the truth values of the sentences proposed in the disputation. During the disputation the casus is used in deciding the answers for the technically irrelevant propositions, which according to the rules are answered in accordance with their actual truth-values. If a sentence included in the casus is proposed in the disputation, and it is evaluated to be irrelevant, it is judged to be true and it has to be granted. This follows naturally from the idea that the casus is understood as if it were true.

Now, if ,the opponent, after 'some man is speaking' has been granted, asks who is this speaking man, the respondent is in a problematic situation. He cannot say that Socrates is speaking, since his positum is that Socrates is silent. If he points out some other manj he admits a false irrelevant sentence, since he is in no way obliged to predicate speaking to just this man. Burley's point is that the respondent should not answer such a question. " I do not think that we can call this question in Kretzmann's and Stump's way "a question requiring a distinction" (distinguibilis).
