"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." -- George Bernard Shaw * "Self" visuals [ photo album POMO? ]
Featured Pages: SELF

Three Stages:

Pre-Christian (the Greeks), Modern Man (Shakespeare), Post-Humanity (the End of the Modern and Postmodernity). My focus is the last stage.

Method: Yoga & Freud
2004: next year plans


Ionesco: Banality is a symptom of non-communication. Men hide behind their cliches.


Camus: More and more, when faced with the world of men, the only reaction is one of individualism. Man alone is an end unto himself. Everything one tries to do for the common good ends in failure.

Playscript Analysis of the Last Century

"Self" in R/G are Dead
From the Greeks to the postmodern: the evolution of the concept of the Individuality.

Oedipus, Hamlet and Hamletmachine.

See Marxism first!


PS: we live through the social transformation equals only to the formation of the society. The Greeks, the beginning of the "Western Civilization" and the 20th centiry, the end of it. Looking back from the 21st century. Call it historical archeology or dramatic reconstruction of the past.

The thing is, you see, that the strongest man in the world is the man who stands alone. (Ibsen)

NB. The concept of Self is connected to ideas about God (god), divine.

Existentialism (page?) and Marxism: What is Self? Self as Many (Bely & Marxism).
