Click Here to Read: A Revolutionary Discovery in China by Ian Johnson in The New York Review of Books in the April 21, 2016 Issue.

Bibliothèque Nationale de France/RMN-Grand Palais/Art Resource.  An eighteenth-century painting showing Emperor Qin Shi Huang of the Qin dynasty ‘burning all the books and throwing scholars into a ravine’ in order to stamp out ideological nonconformity after the unification of China in 221 BCE. ‘For over two millennia,’ Ian Johnson writes, ‘all our knowledge of China’s great philosophical schools was limited to texts revised after the Qin unification.’ Now a trove of recently discovered ancient documents, written on strips of bamboo, ‘is helping to reshape our understanding of China’s contentious past.’ Illustration from Henri Bertin’s album The History of the Lives of the Chinese Emperors.

PRIBOR 1856

Dreams were born here
When he recognized
we were throwing away
The core of knowledge
Seduced as we were by
Surface glitter, manifest
Displays of light, the deeper
Dark ignored as if night’s
Waiting rooms
Were empty and all its ghosts
Not worth our interest,
As if limbs of desire didn’t
Flash and fling mystery about,
In tumult and scream,
As if stars couldn’t see
In the dark, as if folly Read the rest of this post »
