About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. VOLTAIRE - Micromegas - Philosophical History - Voltaire - Prefaces, Cautions, Notes etc. By M. Beuchot. Micromegas is a 1752 short story by the French philosopher and satirist Voltaire. Along with his story Plato s Dream, it is a seminal work in the genre of science fiction, and is a significant development in the history of literature. The tale recounts the visit to Earth of a being from a planet circling the star Sirius, and of his companion from the planet Saturn. The technique of using an outsider to comment on aspects of Western culture was popular at this period. Voltaire used it again in Zadig. Montesquieu, too, applied it in Persian Letters, as did Jose Cadalso in Cartas marruecas and Tomas Antonio Gonzaga in Cartas Chilenas. The story is organized into seven brief chapters. The first describes Micromegas (small/large), an inhabitant of one of the planets that orbits Sirius. His home world is 21.6 million times greater in circumference than the Earth. Micromegas stands 120,000 feet (about 23 miles) tall . When he is almost 450 years old, approaching the end of his infancy, Micromegas writes a scientific book examining the insects on his planet, which at 100 feet are too small to be detected by ordinary microscopes. This book is considered heresy, and after a 200-year trial, he is banished from the court for a term of 800 years. Micromegas takes this as an incentive to travel around the Universe in a quest to develop his intellect and his spirit. After extensive celestial travels he arrives on Saturn, where he befriends the secretary of the Academy of Saturn, a man less than a twentieth of his size (a dwarf standing only 6,000 feet tall). They discuss the differences between their planets. The Saturnian has 72 senses while the Sirian has 1,000. The Saturnian lives for 15,000 Earth years while the Sirian lives for 10.5 million years; Micromegas reports that he has visited worlds where people live much longer than this, but still consider their lifespans too short. At the end of their conversation, they decide to take a philosophical journey together. Eventually, they arrive on Earth and circumnavigate it in 36 hours, with the Saturnian only getting his lower legs wet in the deepest ocean and the Sirian barely wetting his ankles. They decide that the planet must be devoid of life, since it is too small for them to see with the naked eye. In the Baltic Sea, the Saturnian happened to spot a tiny speck swimming about, and he picks it up to discover that it is a whale. As they examine it, a boatful of philosophers returning from an Arctic voyage happens to run aground nearby. Seller Inventory # APC9781514866474

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Novas Edicioes Academicas | Estudo comparativo entre a Sátira de Gregório de Matos e Guerra e o poema "Cartas Chilenas", de Tomás Antônio Gonzaga | Esta pesquisa é um estudo comparativo entre a poesia satírica de Gregório de Matos e Guerra, no século XVII e os versos satíricos de Tomás Antônio Gonzaga, representados nas Cartas Chilenas, poema árcade do século XVIII. A poesia, por meio do tempo, tornou-se entidade disseminadora não só de beleza artística, mas também de representação histórica e de consciência de nação. Muito mais que o efeito de encantamento que possui, a poesia é tecida de vida, que não a vida real , mas a vida que se realiza na palavra; no sentido estético, e que não é história nem consciência real , todavia a elas se refere e a elas transmuta. O objetivo desse estudo é percorrer os períodos aos quais pertenceram o poeta baiano seiscentista Gregório de Matos e o poeta árcade Tomás Antônio Gonzaga. Estes períodos constituem desdobramentos do Renascimento. O material de pesquisa é o pólen que nos ares dos tempos espalha vida: a poesia gregoriana ressurge nas Cartas Chilenas, de Gonzaga. O murmúrio de Gregório que se ouve em Gonzaga só contribui para que seu verso se torne ainda mais tradição, ainda menos murmúrio.Este livro traz uma visão de tradição gregoriana que se inicia com Gonzaga, já no século XVIII. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: por | 249 gr | 220x150x9 mm | 176 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783639686685
