R/e-cycling in modern Territories
http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/uni/nec/carruthe22.htmThe etymology is primarily a mnemonic, an image that "finds out" something one wishes, for whatever reason, to recall. Counselling the mnemonic value of such puns predates the systematizing of Hellenistic education in the fourth century, B. C. It is a prominent feature of the sophist fragment (c. 400) on the art of memory, called Dialexeis or Dissoi Logoi. To remember words, the author says, one should connect them via homophonies to mental images; for example, to remember the word "pyrilampes," which means "glowworm," one might connect it to a flaming torch, via pyr, fire, and lampein, shine. 18
one should respect his genius as a product of the multiplicity and not as a total through tradition(accumulated information), therefor claiming neither authorship over it nor himself to be an authority but a generator of power.
Etymologically genius has the same derivation as nature, from the Indo-European root *gen-, "produce." It is the indwelling nature of an object or class of objects or events that act with a perceived or hypothesized unity.
Nor is the date of consecration of the Victory of Samothrace, or the naval battle the statue commemorates, known. The eastern Mediterranean saw many battles between rival fleets following the accession of Philip V of Macedonia in 221 BC. Philip’s defeat in 197 BC and the humiliating defeat of the ruler of Antioch at the hands of the Pergamon forces in 189 BC led to the end of such naval battles. After that, there were no further battles of the sort commemorated by the Victory of Samothrace for many years. It thus seems likely that the sculptor worked on the Victory in Samothrace between 220 and 185 BC, before beginning work on the Great Altar of Pergamon.http://www.louvre.fr/templates/llv/flash/victoiredesamothrace/victoiredesamothrace_acc_en.html
