Balinese Character: A Photographic Analysis

Via advantage of its designated approach to presentation, this gorgeous and distinguished
book, commemorating the one 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 definite significant positive factors of Balinese life.
These are observed by means of explanatory reviews, sometimes by means of excerpts from notes
made parallel to the taking of the images, and by way of interpretative summaries pointing
out the relationships among photographs grouped jointly. The list of “visual and
kinaesthetic studying” illustrates the original contribution of the photographic document
at its top. right here the empathy-stimulating caliber of the photographs, their bright detail
and beneficiant sequences, hold the reader right into a concrete event of training-inthe-culture
which verbal fabric couldn't supply. The 2 hundred pages of plates and commentary
are preceded by means of an essay on Balinese personality via Mead, in descriptive and interpretative
form. This end-result of commentary, association, and research is thus
brought into relation to the pictures.

Sample text

If it is granted that reason, understanding, and theory cannot on their own offer a satisfactory answer to the Socratic question, one may presume that the will can achieve this feat. This option may be particularly tempting if one believes that values are made or created, rather than discovered (Mackie 1977: 106; Nietzsche 1974: §301). Nietzsche’s views, that nihilism is defeated by adopting an affirming attitude towards life as a whole, illustrate how this is meant to work. According to this position, one makes one’s life worthwhile by conferring value upon it.

It is not just an estimate of the true answer that we want but an estimate that is sensible and defensible: tenable, in short. We may need to resort to more information than is actually given, but we do not want to make it up ‘out of thin air’. The provision of reasonable warrant for rational assurance is the object of the enterprise. In the information-deficient, enthymematic circumstances that prevail when philosophical questions must be resolved in the face of evidential underdetermination, we have and can have no logically airtight guarantees.

If I love reading, my love for the activity does not stop when I am doing it. 10 Second, the value of the activities which are constituents of projects is, qua parts of projects, merely that of tools for achieving the goal. For instance, the value of making shoes is that of a means to an end (a good pair of shoes) from which it derives its value. The value of a component of a performance such as a dance, instead, is qua constituent of the larger activity, a matter of its contribution to the value of the whole activity.
