Example text

Such is the desired fusion of 'Western' conscious thought with 'Eastern' inchoate experience. All forms of abstraction must be dispensed with. The world as given is anterior to all formation of concepts, and therefore none of the concepts we customarily use are truly applicable to it: 'the world proper is non-material, forceless, non-numerical, causeless, fortuitous, non-existent, non-possible, non-true, non-real etc... ' 34 . 35 Abstract convictions about the nature of reality are not rejected out of hand; Steiner's system accords relative validity not only to the conclusions of individual sciences within their own methods, but also to all actual and possible outlooks upon the world.

61 The sense in which it can be said that the form of art is also the content of art may be extracted from Bely's discussion of the nature of the symbol. 62 Art is about that creative action, not about the phenomena used as a means to express it (content in the conventional 23 Andrey Bely sense). When Bely then speaks of the content of art as 'meaning' (smysl), he is referring to the meaning of such creative activity in general. The question to which this statement is properly the answer would be: what purpose does such creative activity serve at all?

Man's original act in relation to the external world is the act of naming; by naming a thing, man asserts its existence; without this act neither the world nor the ego would exist. '87 The word itself is a symbol; man fuses in it the two incomprehensible elements of space, the objective world, and time, the subjective experience. The Greek 'logos' is no less important to Bely in its original meaning than in its theological sense. The act of naming, being the creation of individual words, is prior to grammar and the logical relations it expresses.
