Your two readings are PLOK Chad :thumbs:

Just one thought about Florence Nightengale's piece.

Do you think you should say: From NOTES ON NURSING: WHAT IT IS, AND WHAT IT IS NOT. ? at the beginning or end.

Thank you, Anita! :) I think this account of the Chicago Fire will make an interesting "companion piece" in vol. 069 to Availle's account of the destruction caused by the eruption of Mt. Asama.

You read very well! :)

Of Fossil Shells and Other Extraneous Fossils

Craig, Thanks for this questioning essay by Goldsmith about the origin of fossils! :) It's interesting to see how speculative thinking about causation can lead down such varied paths.

There is only one place to fix (if you want to; I'm willing to let it go). And that is, at 3:00, where you quote the footnote marked * (Woodward's Essay) instead of the footnote marked + (Lowth. Abridg. Phil. Trans. vol. II, p. 426). Maybe just leave out the reference entirely??

Off topic: Your latest LibriVox signature has me as flummoxed as did your last one. What is the ingratitude that is here plaguing Kierkegaard?

The whole quote is from his Four Upbuilding Discourses December 6, 1843 published in his Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses 1843-1844 p. 117
What had been his eye’s delight, his eyes craved to see again and his ingratitude punished him by inducing him to believe it to be more beautiful than it had ever been. What his soul delighted in, it now thirsted for, and ingratitude punished him by picturing it to him as more delightful than it had ever been. What he once had been able to do, he now wanted to be able to do again, and ingratitude punished him with fantasies that had never had any truth. Then he condemned his soul, living, to be starved out in the insatiable craving of the lack.
He's talking about experience - a good experience that one has - and the desire for the repetiton of that experience in the exact same way. It doesn't come to the standard of the first so it develops a yearning in the experiencer for that sameness that punishes him or her. The yearner doesn't think he is punishing himself but thinks someone else is standing in the way. He was talking about Job from the Old Testament.

Kierkegaard published a book that he named Repetition Oct 6, 1843 that addressed the same phenomenon. Here a psychiatrist was trying to prove that repetition does exist and Kierkegaard tries to prove that it doesn't. He thinks people rely on memory and that memory creates illusions that make them become ungrateful for the thing they did get.

Hi Betty, Thanks for this! :) It was interesting to me to see that so much of the "progressive" ideas about education that I suffered through in junior high were already in place in the early 1900's. "Women's studies" 1950's style included bed making and how to wash dishes (begin by washing the relatively clean silverware and end with the greasy pots, all in the same pan of dish water). The jr. high school, which was brand new the year I entered it now sports "weapon-free zone" signage at the doors. I have no idea what they teach there.
