Dear Colleagues,

perhaps summertime and the heatwaves generate a desire for relaxation, holidays and enjoyment of the beauty around us. The international website reflects this tendency this week in its emphasis on art. Whether it is the lives of actors (Marilyn Monroe), the effect of current technology on our psyche, or the art of Austro-Hungarian painters. This is a week of very nuanced posts.

My choices this week are as follows:

1) the sensitive description and discussion of Gustave Klimt, Gustav Klimt is best known for his famous golden paintings, portraits of society women adorned in jewels and cloaked in gold, is in my opinion a masterpiece of portraying the way his art ported the Vienna of his, qs well as S. Freud’s day and of its connection to the rise of Hitler and antisemitism.

IX. Gelernter***s ***America Lite*** with an Introduction by Nathan Szajnberg

Gelernter***s ***America Lite***

David Gelernter, professor of computer science at Yale University, was a victim of the Unabomber who was ***on to*** Gelernter***s innovative ideas about how computers work and can work.

Recovering from being wounded by the mailed bomb, Gelernter proceeded to broaden his perspectives in his subsequent books. His newest, ***America Lite,*** sounds like an update on Alan Bloom***s The Closing of the American Mind, his complaint and lament at how Universities are failing in their task to broaden critical thinking.

Here is a short interview and also some brief words by him. (He has an apt name, which in Yiddish means ***learned one*** or ***educated.***)

X. Review of Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the Law,

by Elizabeth Brake

Reviewed by Long in Reason.com

In the 1970***s Bettelheim wrote a piece for Daedelus that marriage, for the most part of history has been an economic pact for a small businesss (the family, as Talcott Parsons might put it).

Here is an excerpt from this article:

***Only an individual who feels genuinely invigorated by the growth, development, and success of others can become an effective leader of an enterprise. And it remains the most common obstacle of success for those trying to make that leap.***

The other side of narcissism is generativity, the gratification in seeing the success of others. (Ekman uses the Yiddish term, ***naches*** for a similar emotion.)
