Patient Griselda

Seven Deadly Sins: Disney Princess Edition. Decameron Web. Griselda is a complicated story (X.10) not only because it, like so many Decameron tales affords multiples interpretations, but also due to the contrastingly sacred and secular roots and progeny of this story's involvement in the history of european literature.

Decameron Web

The testings of Griselda's loyalty have their source in the biblical trials of Job. While, the great humanist Petrarch devoted himself unsollicited to the translation of Boccaccio's vernacular version into Latin, with substantial revision or "redressing" of content and meaning. Pesellino's Griselda I and II Two panels attributed to Pesellino, dated to ca. 1450, are currently held in the collection of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo. The first panel is titled Gualtieri and Advisors, and depicts an interior of the Marquis de Saluzzo's castle. John Rawls (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

I nomi e gli aggettivi alterati. 12 maggio 2011 Cari lettori e care lettrici di Intercultura blog, oggi parleremo dei nomi alterati, infatti l’aggiunta di particolari suffissi alla radice di un nome o di un aggetttivo introduce delle modifiche in relazione alla quantità, alla qualità, al giudizio di valore, senza cambiare il significato principale della parola.

I nomi e gli aggettivi alterati

Per esempio la parola “libro” ha gli alterati “librino“, “libruccio“, “librone“, “libraccio” ecc., i quali indicano sempre lo stesso oggetto, ma specificano allo stesso tempo che si tratta di un libro “piccolo”, “grazioso”, “grande”, “di poco valore” ecc.

Reza Palhavi, l’ultimo Shah

Per molti occidentali è stato il sovrano illuminato di un regno da mille e una notte. Ma in patria era odiato per i metodi assolutistici, la persecuzione delle opposizioni, l’alleanza con gli Stati Uniti e la Gran Bretagna e lo sfarzo della gigantesca corte.

[Excerpted from chapter 1 of The State: Its History and Development Viewed Sociologically] This treatise regards the state from the sociological standpoint only, not from the juristic — sociology, as I understand the word, being both a philosophy of history and a theory of economics.

Our object is to trace the development of the state from its sociopsychological genesis up to its modern constitutional form; after that, we shall endeavor to present a well-founded prognosis concerning its future development. Since we shall trace only the state's inner, essential being, we need not concern ourselves with the external forms of law under which its international and intranational life is assumed.
