some cases, the move can continue for many rounds around the board. Rounds or cycles are called duru by the masters of a mancala game known as bao , whose players use this term to indicate one of the prerequisites for mastership (de Voogt, 1995 ). Duru may continue endlessly (Kronenburg et al

’s political obligation. Moreover, close inspection of the notion of causation by natural resultancy within Suárez’s metaphysics shows that what emanates from the body politic in this fashion is not, as claimed, polit- ical subjection and political obligation, but rather the city’s right to self-mastership

But this does not mean that reliance on the Dialogues necessarily negates the reconstruction of a model of Mastership, it only forces us to acknowledge that the historical scope of that model might

Fangchun Li

The practice of fanxin, literally, “turning hearts and minds,” was widespread in the Liberated Areas of Northern China during the Land Reform Movement of 1946–48. This article examines the forms of power relations emerged during the course of revolutionary education and transformation which were geared towards awakening the peasants’ “self-consciousness of mastership.” Taking ku/suffering as the focal point, the article investigates two main types of thought-power, “speaking bitterness” (suku) and “visiting the suffering people” (fangku), both of which were important to the practices of fanxin. Through the investigation of fanxin, this empirical study reveals an important feature of the Chinese revolution: that is, the significance of the mind/heart, thought, or “spiritual elements.”

The Limits of Cyclization

Friedrich Schlegel’s Notes ‘On Philology’ as a Form of the Novel Lucinde

Christoph König

This article examines Friedrich Schlegel’s theory of philological practice and presents it as crucial for any philology that seeks to establish its philosophical ground without taking resort to theory. Schlegel’s concepts and the form of argument he employs, as illustrated in his notes “On Philology”, are elucidated. Schlegel focuses on ‘cyclization’ as a reiterated critique of a non-discursive practice that eventually leads to a mastership akin to art. Schlegel’s “Lucinde” is—as the article demonstrates—to be read as a novel that serves this philological purpose. Finally, the question of how to deal with art as a telos of philology in times of the modern university is discussed, with the conclusion being that we have to distinguish between the process of gaining insight and the discursive justification of that insight.

Parmenides, he tells us the correlates of Mastership itself (i.e. Slavery itself) and of Knowledge (133D-134A). Mills supposes that, because Plato asks: What is Mastership master o f ?, he would equally be prepar- ed to ask: What is the Form of Equal equal to? In fact, Plato does not say that Mastership is

mastership of the Pleasure Principle in psychic life is a key part of the Freudian legacy. What can be made of a specula- tion that seeks to go beyond it? Derrida's closely-woven textual exploration shows that Freud never could complete this question. Everything, he says, is accomplished in the first several
